The family and I were back in Halifax visiting my parents, who offered to watch the tyke while my husband and I got a night out (yahoo, date night! A must-have for any sane parents!).
I can tell they are having more fun with him with each visit as he gets older (and more charming... for now), and they're taking full advantage of being able to enjoy him without the hassles of parenting. Wheelbarrow rides and everything!
Sonny's not even one and a half, and he's already experiencing the quintessential visit with the grandparents, as we noted when we got home from our dinner-and-movie.
Staying up late eating cake? That's what a visit with the grandparents is all about.
Also note, it took him ONE DAY to learn the word 'cake', while we're still working on getting him to call me "Mama".
