Battling the bug! Plus, GRAND Social No. 337 link party for grandparents

Battling the bug!

My three grandsons from the desert (and their parents) spent the long MLK weekend at our house, to celebrate Benjamin’s baptism. It was a fast but fabulous family time and I have much to share of our couple of days together. But I haven’t yet… because I’ve been battling a persistent bug of a stuffy, snotty sort ever since the boys headed home. I’ve had neither the energy nor inclination to post the pics nor share the story, but hope to—nay, plan to!—soon.

Not only has my battle with the bug kept me from regaling you all with shots and such from my triple-B weekend (boys, baptism, Benjamin celebration), it’s put a kink in my weekly gig with my youngest grandson.

See, for the past few weeks, I’ve been watching Benjamin each Thursday—to give Brianna a break and me some Benjamin time. Alas, I had to cancel Benjamin time last Thursday to keep him clear of Gramma’s bug. Then I had to cancel on Friday too (our postponed time), as the darn bug didn’t budge.

As I lamented the loss of snuggle time with the silly boy, Brianna texted a special message:

No better medicine for a bug-battling grandma!

(A grandma who better be better by Thursday because while texts from the tot work wonders, as Marvin and Tammy attest, ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby!)

GRAND Social No. 337 link party for grandparents

Thank you for stopping by for this week’s link party exclusively for grandparents! I appreciate your participation and look forward to your links.

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.

  • Grandparents who do not blog (or want to share something other than their own post) are welcome to add links to other posts grandparent readers may be interested in.

  • 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 the blog or website home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.

  • I reserve the right to remove posts I feel are inappropriate. (Which hasn't happened yet, but I feel obligated to note that, just in case.)

  • Those who add links to the GRAND Social link party will be sent a weekly reminder when the party goes live. If you prefer to be removed from that email list, feel free to do so (and you'll still be more than welcome to join the party any time).

  • If adding your own post, including a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. 

  • 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 linker, 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.
