Now that our grandson Colton, 5, is in preschool four days a week, my daughter Jennifer and I can spend some quality time together. It has been many years since we could do that.
In the years previous to this, we could go shopping and out to lunch, but we always had at least one child with us. We had to pick child-friendly restaurants, and when we were in a store, one of us had to be on kid duty while the other one shopped.
Please don't think I am complaining, because my grandchildren are the world to me. But it is nice to have some time with just my daughter.
