I *heart* G’rents

Posted by mbamommy on June 10, 2009

Now that I have kids, my parents and JC’s parents have renewed their place as some of our favorite people in the world (mine dropped off when I was a teenager and have been slowly moving back up in the ranks since then).  A couple weekends ago, 2 of the 6 grandparents came in to see Petite Syrah, runZMC and Boo (oh yeah, and us, right?).  All the kids LOVED the extra attention and treats they got.  We played at the pool, took walks, got tons of awesome pics – and JC and I weren’t running around like crazy following the kids.  It also allowed MBAMommy to take a nice little relaxer from carrying 55+ lbs of baby up and down stairs all day.  See, when Grandma C and Grandpa R are in the house, Mommy and Daddy are totally lame.  And we LOVE that. 

We even got a *much* needed date night.  And, herein lies the first reason why I *heart* g’rents.  FREE BABYSITTING.  Not only that, but post pre-dinner drinks and pre-dinner, we realized that our car wouldn’t start and we’d need to call AAA/get a cab/get towed/whatever.  Here’s the 2nd reason I *heart* g’rents.  FREE RIDE HOME.  Which leads to the 3rd reason. FREE DD.  Once JC & I coordinated with Grandpa R when and where we needed to be picked up, we thoroughly enjoyed a bottle (+) of yummy wine and some delicious Cafe Luna treats.  It was one of those nights where the restaurant could have burned down around us and we wouldn’t have known.  It was one of those nights where I was reminded that I married an amazing man, not just an amazing Daddy.

Back to the first reason I *heart* g’rents.  The next day, JC and I head back downtown to figure out the car situation only to realize as we’re trying to unlock the car that we’ve left the keys back at the house (probably a little too much yummy wine the previous night?).  So, back we go up to the house and back we go downtown (a 25 minute trip, one-way), get the car started and get on with our days.  I *heart* g’rents because we didn’t have to take the munchkins on our 75 minute tour of Capital Blvd (FREE BABYSITTING), which would have made last night’s yummy wine soooooo un-yummy.

G’rents, if you’re reading this, you’re welcome to visit anytime!!! 🙂
