When we arrived home after the reunion, I had nothing thawed to cook for dinner or lunch. So my granddaughter and I went to Wendy’s first so that she could eat a hamburger and fries for lunch.
Then she and I went grocery shopping for the week to buy her favorites so that I knew she would eat. Yes, I spoil her rotten but that is what Grandma’s do. We overbought on lots of treats(many she wanted to try) but whatever she doesn’t eat this week, I am sure my grandson will. Plus Hubby will eat some of them.
The pictures show everything we purchased. Sorry that one of them is blurry and I hadn’t noticed that. I don’t want to take the time to itemize the prices but we did spend $ 168.65. So lest you think I never spend any money, this shows that is not the case.
She only wanted chicken and spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. So we will be eating lots of chicken dishes.
The broccoli was for both she and I. I can fill in anything else that isn’t junk from my stockpile.
I couldn’t believe that she has never had a Twinkie or a Swiss Roll, so we got those for her to try. Her Dad used to love Twinkie’s.
What I didn’t tell you yesterday is that when Hubby turned on the A/C when we got home, it would not turn on. Even the fan isn’t working. We are hoping it is the thermostat. We called our A/C people for service Monday morning and they are swamped. So they can’t come until Wednesday afternoon. So we will be doing as much cooking outside as possible and with the air fryer and microwave. We don’t want to heat up the house. We open the windows at night and cool it down.
I hope you all have a great week!

That's the beauty of being a grandparent- you can spoil the kids & then send them home. 😉
Yup! And I love doing it.
I do the same thing with my grandsons.
That's terrific! Being a Grandparent is so much fun!
I can certainly see a child’s influence on this trip and I think it’s great.
I just read something to the affect that “ if you raise your children right, you can spoil your grandchildren. But if you don’t raise your children to be responsible, you’ll be raising your grandchildren “ And that’s why it’s perfectly OK to be spoiling and making memories now.
Enjoy your time with your granddaughter ❤️ We both know it goes fast.
Hi AD, this is Chris. Let the spoiling begin! Have a great week with your granddaughter.
