Tonight I am grateful to my in-laws, who are spending the weekend with my daughter while Elysha and I attend a literary retreat in Vermont.
Had they stuck Clara in front of the television with a bowl of Cheetos for a weekend-long marathon of The Wonder Pets marathon, I would have been grateful, but Barbara and Gerry have planned a weekend for Clara that features:
- Old Sturbridge Village, which includes a Meet the Baby Animals exhibit that is sure to knock my daughter’s socks off.
- Fish feeding at The Pittsfield Museum
- A performance of Thumbelina
- Lunch and dinner at some of their favorite dining spots around town
Any child on the planet would be blessed to have Barbara and Gerry as grandparents. I feel so incredibly fortunate that my daughter is the lucky one.
