When I was a kid spending a few days with Grandma was awesome. Stay up late, eat mac-n-cheese and no veggies, buy toys Mom wouldn't ever allow and clothes she wouldn't like. It was my own little slice of heaven.
Now as a parent, I'm realizing that:
Days with Grandma = Parenting Vaca
While Big Girl has been off staying up late watching movies, eating mac-n-cheese, playing play dough with CZ and making fabulous art with her Aunt - Husband and I got to eat out (with Little Man) watch what we want on TV and even sleep in a little.
Its about as good as a break when you have two young children.
