A public thank you

After razzing my mom in yesterday's post about "spoiling" my kids, I thought I'd better post a more serious comment so that those of you who aren't familiar with my tongue-in-cheek humor don't get the wrong idea! My parents do an excellent job striking the right balance between letting the kids have special grandparents' house privileges/treats while at the same time maintaining a structured atmosphere where the kids still have to obey the rules and behave themselves.
Thank you very much, Dad and Mom, for keeping our kids for us during our anniversary trip...
thank you for the generous outpouring of your time, energy, love, and patience...
we know full well that those are all required in large amounts in order to keep up with our pipsqueaks!!!
It is thrilling to us that our kids enjoyed such a wonderful vacation of their own while we were away from them.
We love you!
