What It's Like to Live with Grandparents (Harry Edition)

Hey, y’all!  It’s Harrison and I’m taking over my momma’s job to talk to you about the raddest, best, most coolest part of my life – living with my Gram and Grandaddy!

Seriously, living with them is better than a pick-up truck pulling a dump-truck that’s decorated like a bus.  It’s better than Lucky Charms on top of cotton-candy flavored yogurt with fruit snacks on the side.

Here’s why it rocks so hard:

  • Frequent trips to the park. 1 of 8
    Frequent trips to the park.
    Gram & Grandaddy don't have a swingset in their backyard, so Momma and Daddy take me to the park after work all the time. Score!
  • Group hugs. 2 of 8
    Group hugs.
    Every night before bed, I ask for a "group hug," which means that all my favorite people pile in with me squished in the middle. It's the best way to end a day.
  • New toys. 3 of 8
    New toys.
    I can pretty much count on Grandaddy or Gram slipping me a new Matchbox car every few weeks. Just because I'm awesome.
  • Four adults means four cars. 4 of 8
    Four adults means four cars.
    Means more trips to the carwash.
  • Really fun adventures. 5 of 8
    Really fun adventures.
    My grandparents never mind doing super-fun special thing that I'll enjoy, like getting donuts on Saturday morning.
  • Happy cakes! 6 of 8
    Happy cakes!
    Once Gram realized that I could sing the Happy Birthday song, she started bringing home "happy cakes" for just about every occasion. Now I get a small piece after dinner for good eating and behavior!
  • Lots of walks. 7 of 8
    Lots of walks.
    With me and Tuck running circles at the end of the day, Momma always suggests a "small family" walk, which means it's just me, her, Daddy, and Tuck.

    I just love them to pieces. I get to see them every day and that is the best part.
