One of my designated duties as a grandmom is to pick up the grandkids after daycare I’m grateful that I get to seem them on a daily basis. My charming son-in-law is from Vermont, so the grandkids don’t get to see his parents as frequently.
My own mother-in-law lived just around the block from us, and was over visiting everyday, so my girls, ages 22 and 26, were fortunate that they got to visit with their grandmom often.
Back to School Shopping – Childrens School Shoes
One of my fondest memories is that from the time the girls were little, Gram always would take them out for back-to-school shopping and buy a pair of shoes for school each year. Gram didn’t like to see the little ones go barefoot at all. We all know how quickly kids feet grow – the average pair of shoes lasts about three months.
Well, now the “shoe is on the other foot” and my husband and I are the ones buying shoes for the grandkids. It makes us feel good to be helping out my daughter and her husband, and my daughter has fond memories of her gram doing the same thing for her.
If you’re a mom or grandmom looking for some parenting advice on baby’s first pair of shoes, Start-Rite just launched a new social community. It has some really neat articles about what to look for in first shoes, walking, along with videos on how to measure a child’s foot for a proper fit.
