A childs work is play

Many moons ago when I was in high school, taking child development I
was told a truth I have always remembered. A childs work is play.

I had an assignment in that class to finish the following sentence.
"The greatest thing a father can do for his children is....". I wrote
in something I had always heard my own dad say- and now I think it's
really from one of the church leaders. I wrote the greatest thing a
father can do for his children is to love their mother. This was at a
HS in southern Cali and my teacher was very impressed with the
insight. Sidenote over

Our little man Jack comes to see me for just two or three hours
every week. I try and make sure he works very hard! Today while he
was sleeping I thought how thankful I was to be able to watch him. For
him to have to be in any kind of day care would certainly break my
heart. I think of day care as a situation when tiny kids have to take
care of themselves, kinda be on their own. I've never had a problem
with this possible part of grandma hood. I saw my own mom help out
with all of her grandkids. My sisters have all watched their
grandkids. It's just one if the perks of the calling ;) I am thankful
he comes to see me. He keeps the uncles in line.
