Parents take a lot of flack for “trying to be cool”.
The good thing is that for every grandparent, what constitutes cool is whatever the grandkids say it is. Once we figure that out and keep giving them whatever “it” is, we’ve got cool covered.
You may already know that my own DaniBug lives in another country and we therefore rely on technology to stay connected when we can’t be together. I have figured out what makes me the coolest granny: The Skype ring on her iPad! She literally screams with delight and my cool factor goes up every time we are face-to-face via internet!
Once you discover that it that makes you cool to your bundle of joy, keep doing it as long as they like and when it’s time to move on to the next cool thing, I’m sure they’ll let you know.
To all the cool grannies, mommies, daddies and other adults caring for our precious children, I salute you.
Speaking of cool. If there’s a toddler in your life, chances are you spend some time watching a bit of TV. I’ve learned about pigs and trains, doctors and planes, thanks to my DaniBug. Keeping up with Peppa and Dora also adds to my cool factor!
So, how cool are you? Take this quiz to find out!!
It’s not one of those complex scientific experiments, I promise. Just a fun, quick way to see if you need to up your cool factor!
Hint: you might want to have your toddler nearby in case you need some help. But be quick as the quiz expires after 5 mins! Have fun and see you on the other side of the quiz.
As always, wishing you happy times until our paths cross again!
From our hearts to yours. DaniBug and her doting Granny Owl.
