For the past month, Woody and I have had the great joy of having a house full of family. Since our kids and grandkids all live far from us, this is a gift beyond words. It’s also been a great refresher course on life with kids—and life through the eyes of a toddler. For a few brief days—wonderful, joyfully chaotic days—we had all five grandkids here, ages four months to four-and-a half years. But for a whole month (yay!) we’ve had Gabriella (aka Gigi) and her mom, our daughter Erika, with us from Dublin, Ireland, with Richie (Erika’s husband and Gigi’s dad) here for two weeks.
Erika and I would like to share a few “hot tips” I’ve picked up along the way from life with Gigi. We moms can learn a lot from a 19-month-old!
