Grandchildren and Business – isn’t it great when you can have the two together.
One of the great joys in our life is being a Grandparent, we love spending time with our Grandchildren. As we live interstate we don’t see then as often as we would like. One of the advantages of our business is that we can work while travelling, as long as we have a phone and internet connection, we are good to go. This doesn’t mean we are always working; just we can when we want or need to.
Just last week we needed to be in Sydney for a SendOutCards seminar, so of course we took the opportunity to catch up with two of our Grandchildren. We love being able to combine business with pleasure. We especially love the big hugs we receive when we catch up with them.
Our Grandson always loves our visits and now he is at school he writes our visit on his whiteboard. It’s lovely to know our visits are rated so highly. When we arrive he is always anxiously waiting out the front. One of the things he loves doing is playing board games. He loves to show us his latest game and insists that we play a game with him. Last time we played Pokémon and we are still a bit unsure of the rules.
The only time we could see our Granddaughter on this trip was on the day of her parent teacher interviews. So Sue went along with her mother to the interview. Having three generations represented in her interview impressed the teacher. She said that it was rare to have both a pupil’s mother and grandmother present in the same meeting. Ron went out and did a bit of work, as he thought it may have too overwhelming to have us all present. After the interviews we all went out for dinner. I am sure our granddaughter was very proud to have Grandma as well as Mum sit in on the interviews. It was interesting that now she is in high school there were no big hugs until we were away from the school. Hugging Grandma at school is a bit uncool.
