Distance Grandparenting…Family Connections

Connecting from afar…not easy but rewarding.  It seems friends ask me almost everyday, how can you stand being so far away from your grandchildren and children.   Andi and family in Sacramento and Emily in NYC…..Coast to Coast.  My first answer is we are tuition free, they are all off our payroll, and they are happy!  We did raise independent, strong women…maybe started when we let them participate in French Back to Back Program back in elementary school.  Or could be that as a teacher, I watched parents reduce self-confidence by always stepping in for their children.

Thank goodness for Technology!  Sometimes I think we may connect more often then if we lived in the same city.

So they do know how to say GO BUCKS!  I think Eli is already helping Evie prepare for early entrance to THE Ohio State University.   I haven’t taught them the words to  ” I Wanna Go BACK to Ohio State”.

Joining them on vacations…..Always trying to be the FUN Grandparents!  This is much easier when you don’t have to discipline…just try to respect Mom and Dad’s rules.

  • Face time is wonderful!  Time to listen to Eli count or tell us a story…
  • Face time helps us make Evie smile!
  • Face time is fun to watch your adult child parent
  • Face time is a connection…I helped rearrange furniture, helped create table settings, or which one should I buy Mom?
  • Text….Good morning!  Have a great day!  I Love YOU!
  • Being invited to join on short getaways !
  • Knowing and building excitement for  our next time together

Conversation in my Car this week…Phoenix and Houston

I love hearing comments from potential BUCKEYES when I am giving my Columbus Tour.

Comments I heard this week…

EVERYTHING is so GREEN!

THIS is  rush hour TRAFFIC?

SHOPPING IS A SURPRISE TO ME!

PEOPLE are so FRIENDLY and HELPFUL!

Is that a CORNFIELD?

And I always ask…do you like football…well if they say no…I let them know we have…

The BEST Damn Band!

A NEW KIND of Nanny for Summer Months who Will Do All the Work…Curious?

I am TESTIMG a Nanny this week to take over while I keep a close watch.  She needs 8 bottles of wine…empty.

 

While away it is sometimes a chore to find someone to take care of summer flowers, the Nanny takes over.

Fill the empty bottle with water and …

 

Place clay stake with upside down vino bottle full of water in the middle of the pot of flowers…. and the test begins.  This plant had been full of blooms all summer…so can the Nanny take over while I visit my grandchildren?  Testing begins today.

Love the Name in this store front I saw in Vermilion last weekend…So true for me…Andi and Emily are on call almost 24/7 and Lauren our TECH Guru at REMAX Affiliates is an amazing help to me.

Speaking of Vermilion, rated as one of the BEST Restaurants in OHIO…Chez Francois…worth the trip!

COMING SOON…FIVE easy to follow TIPS that cost NOTHING to transform your HOME to a PRODUCT to Sell!  Under PRODUCTION, soon to go PUBLIC.

Still CRAZY Market…last three listings went in hours…and now I need more “Merchandise” to Sell.

Looking for a 4 Bedroom, 3 Full Bath House in Upper Arlington 600-700K  NO HOME SALE Contingency and Lender Approved!  Family would love to get in before School STARTS.
