    Ice bucket fatigue no more

    ice cubes

    I feel like a jerk admitting this, but I tired rather quickly of seeing video after video of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. I know it's a fabulous way to raise awareness of — and funds for — the horrific disease. I know that. Truly, I get that. But each time I saw yet another...

    My first video review, plus GRAND Social link party No. 119

    My first video review

    When I first started the Grandma's Briefs website way back in 2009, I planned to not share photos of myself. It seemed best to keep the site all about my grandson — it was back when Bubby was my one and only — and staying kind of anonymous was the way to go, I thought.

    Run, Andie, Run: Color Fun Fest 5k

    I don't run. My daughters love to tackle everything from 5ks to marathons and more. As for me, though, I'm pretty sure I couldn't run to save my life. (Meh... blame it on the MS... I do.)

    That doesn't mean I don't...

    Baby bathtime: Wherein 'adorbs' doesn't even come close

    My three grandsons have all approached bathtime differently as babies. Bubby always enjoyed playing in the tub, especially when I come up with fun ideas for water play.
