The next Grilled Grandma

Related Posts with ThumbnailsI'm continually humbled by the incredible jobs performed by the grandmas I grill. I complain on a pretty regular basis about not being able to see Bubby enough, but how would I feel (and how would we all fare) if it turned out that Bubby needed me to take custody of him. I certainly would do it, but I just don't know that I would be able to do it with the grace shown by those Grilled Grandmas for whom raising a grandchild is their reality.

This week's Grilled Grandma, Sally, is one of those grace-filled grandmas raising a grandchild. Sally has a total of eight grandkids, but one lives in her home, without the parent. Just like Karen, a featured Grilled Grandma a couple weeks ago, Sally uses the experience to help other grandparents in similar situations, by running a website and a Facebook group for grandparents raising grandchildren. Funny thing is, although Sally and Karen have much in common, they're on opposite sides of the world, literally, as Sally lives in New Zealand! Goes to show that the grandparenting experience is much the same, no matter what part of the globe you call home.

Read Sally's grilling HERE, then drop by her website or her Facebook group to say hello; links to both are at the bottom of her grilling. Not only will you get to know Sally better, you'll likely find plenty of words of wisdom to make grandparenting more enjoyable -- whether you're raising your grandchildren or just enjoying them as time and distance allow.

Today's question:

In recognition of Sally living in a land far, far away (from most of us), what foreign countries have you visited?

My answer: I've been to Canada and Mexico ... Vancouver, Canada, and Juarez, Mexico, which makes them just barely qualify as trips to foreign countries.
