Closing the Mailbox

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

Grandma in the Mailbox made its debut in January 2011.  My goal was to share ideas for making times with grandchildren special for them and for the reader whether it be a grandma, a mother, or a friend.

I have enjoyed over the months talking about Grandma’s library, the playroom, Grandma Camp, cousin play dates and crafts we have made and games we have played, books we read and the times we spent together.  I liked to share recipes that always received “thumbs up” when I served them to my grandchildren.

I hope that I have given some ideas and maybe some inspiration to others on making memories with their grandchildren.

After publishing 95 posts over these 21 months, I have decided that it is time to close Grandma in the Mailbox.  The blog will still remain on-line if you want to check out a past entry or recipe.

To my grandchildren I’ll still remain Grandma in the Mailbox.  I already have purchased the Halloween and Thanksgiving postcards that I’ll send to them. We’ll still have cousin play dates and sleepovers and fun times.

I have often said that I thought on those forms that ask your occupational status, there should be a box to check that said Grandparent.  I have had many occupations from teacher to office manager to human resources rep, but the best job I have ever had is GRANDMOTHER.  The compensation is hugs and smiles and lots of love.  Can’t be beat.

Thank you, faithful readers, for your visits and your kind and thoughtful comments.
