The Day Nana said "No"
We don't see our 10 grandchildren often enough, they all live out of state. So Grandpa Greg and Nana's house should be a magical place where nothing but fun is allowed. We eat Cocoa Puffs and chocolate milk for breakfast. There is Mango Juice in the refrigerator, ice cream and popsicles in the freezer. There is always a cube of butter sitting out so cookies can be made at a moments notice.
My reading glasses are a little crooked, high heels and jewelry are fair game. There are finger prints on the windows and Grandpa is always willing to watch Cars or Incredibles. We eat snacks while watching movies, naps may or may not happen. Life is good.
Then it happened. Grandpa Greg left his binoculars out, EJ found them, put them around her neck and began spotting deer on the mountain. This was allowed. But then EJ insisted on bringing the binoculars to Costco.
Nana had to say 'no' and our granddaughter suffered a meltdown. Could this be a side effect of Cocoa Puffs and chocolate milk?
