My 5 year old Chef & a Tribute to my Parents!!

My precious Liam, spent the day last sunday with his very loving and patient Grandad & Grandma. My lovely dad just sent me through this photo of Liam and his 'playdoh' meal. Grandad and Liam made a special meal of Corn Beef, carrots, corn and peas. They did such a great job of it and I thought I would share it with you. My children are so fond of their grandparents, and I feel blessed beyond words for their constant love and support of us all. My Dad, is so patient with the kids and will just sit on the ground at (59 years) and play for hours with the kids. He plays all sorts of wonderful games that him and Liam come up with and is such a special part of his life. Grandma sits and reads books to the kids and is so organised and when I go to pick the kids up sometimes when they have enjoyed the day or night with them, their clothes are washed and ironed and the kids come out looking all sparkly and clean and the bag is ready to unpack straight into the cupboard. I am always amazed by their love. So this is a tribute to you my precious parents, who I am sure, I couldn't love more if I tried. Thank you for all you have instilled in me and now to my children. We thank you and love you and know that Gods blessing in our lives includes you both. oxoxo Ali

As a Grandma myself, I believe that is what life is all about. Sharing and loving our family is greatest thing we can do. I am lucky enough to live 5 minutes away from my 2 grandchildren and enjoy sharing their lives. It is lovely to know how much you appreciate your parents.

That was a lovely post Ali, I bet your parents are so very proud of you and their beautiful grandchildren. Loved the playdough creations, maybe you could make it in shades of pink and sell it on your website....not really!

Hi Ali,
You are so lucky to have such wonderful parents (as i am sure you know!) And it's great that they actually take the time to play with and enjoy the kids.
Love the playdough dinner, it's cute!
