    Kitchen assistant, plus GRAND Social No. 171 link party for grandparents

    Kitchen assistant

    My daughter Megan has a new kitchen assistant. His name is Jak:

    toddler in kitchen 

    Jak has many talents related to kitchen duty, including unloading the silverware from the dishwasher each day.

    If you ask me, though, could there possibly be a kitchen assistant more suited for announcing to the family that dinner has been served?

    I think not!

    GRAND Social No. 171

    On a related note: The GRAND Social has been served! Thank you for joining me for this Labor Day 2015 edition!

    grand social link party

    How it works:

    • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
    • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
    • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
    <a rel="nofollow" href="" target="blank"><img src="" alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>
    • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
    • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
    • Adding your link adds you to my weekly email reminder the GRAND Social is live. Feel free to unsubscribe from that email if you no longer wish to receive reminders.
