I have a grandma cupboard in my bedroom where I put a few books or little toys that I think the grandbabies would like, but might miss. I don’t buy extra stuff, it’s just things I already have. This week while cleaning a bookcase I found a little King Arthur sticker book that used to be our FYB’s. The Dread Pirate found it in the Grandma cupboard and was pleased. I told him somebody put it there because somebody thought he might like it.
“Oh, I do!” he said. “But Grandma? Did you know I also like gumdrops and lollipops?”
Actually, as it happens, Grandma did know that. And Grandma has a stash of Yummy Earth Organic Lollipops with ingredients like Organic evaporated cane juice, organic brown rice syrup, non-gmo citric acid (from beet sugar – not corn), natural flavors, organic black carrots, organic black currant, organic apple, organic carrot, organic pumpkin, ascorbic acid.
It’s not strictly healthy, thanks to the cane juice and rice syrup, but it’s better than red dye and a stick in the eye.;-D
