“A grandmother is a little bit parent, a little bit teacher, and a little bit best friend.” ~Amish proverb When my little granddaughter, Reagan Grace, turned three in August, I gave her twelve coupons for “Mimi Moments.” Once a month, I will take Reagan out for a planned outing: an ice cream cone, a cookie, something that includes sugar.

Last week’s winner was Dora Wagner, for her “Waiting for the Great Pumpkin” caption. So funny! Dora, email me with your address and I’ll pop a signed book in the mail to you.
