Hello everybody, Susan's back!
She was down in the areas of North Carolina with the highest concentration of former New Yorkers visiting the husband's daughters.

And his four grand kids;
a two, twin threes & a five.

Susan did things she doesn't normally like to do such as handle caterpillars, sit on the floor and play with blocks, come within kissing distance to a cow, eat her broccoli with enthusiasm, sing the Clean Up song from Barney, assist as necessary in the potty, run across the lawn like a zombie, bake a cake using imprecise measurements and exhaust herself by pushing a kid in a small car around a bumpy back yard.

She also avoided a hated environment by texting her way through an amusement park then sneaking off for a solitary margarita.

Susan was relieved to find only the tiniest amount of little kid bullsh*t in evidence. There was no overt manipulation, no whining, hysterics, tantrums or other unpleasant and childish behavior, just a week's worth of excited conversation from happy children.

Sounds like a perfect week! I cannot wait until my grandbabies are old enough for zombie games and caterpillars.

P.S. Thank God for margaritas, though.

Susan is very mentorly. Especially because of the solitary margarita part.

Sounds like a good week. I like playing with blocks. It's so much fun!
