Having seven great-grandchildren adds joy to my life. Big-time.
Although I prefer keeping one or two at a time occasionally, I end up with five for the afternoon. In spite of the frightful noise level, my ability to remain calm and collected withstands the few hours they are with me.
There were five here one afternoon, and while playing Chicken Train, they began discussing Family Weekend, which was still four months in the future. Everyone was talking at once and out of the blue I said, “We could hold a meeting and discuss what activities should be planned for this year’s Family Weekend. How about it?”
This served as a signal for all to talk at the same time and over the din, I thought, what a great opportunity for a Preachy Teachy Moment!!
I said, “Let’s hold a meeting and use Robert’s Rules of Order.” . . .
