Grandma Comes Up With Hilarious Plan To Get The Grandkids To Visit

Grandmothers are there for us when we need them the most and when we are young, they are perhaps the most important person in our lives. They are like our mothers, only perhaps without quite so much discipline. I can remember visiting my grandmother’s when I was a young child and enjoying every moment of it. Like many children, however, I started to drift away from my grandparents as I got older. It wasn’t that I didn’t love them any longer, I just had other things to do. Most grandmothers experience this type of behavior from their grandchildren but one grandmother had an excellent way to deal with it.

Misty and Milda were talking about their grandchildren after the holidays.

Mitsy said, “My daughter-in-law stopped making my grandchildren send their `thank you’ notes. Each year I sent the grandchildren a card with a generous check inside. I always received a lovely `thank you’ note. However, since my daughter-in-law stopped making the grandkids send thank you notes, I never hear from them.”

Milda said, “My daughter-in-law never made the grandchildren send `thank you’ notes. I too send them a very generous check. However, for the past several years, I hear from them within a week after they receive it. In fact, they each pay me a personal visit.”

“Wow,” remarked Mitsy. “I wish mine would do that.”

“You can, Mitsy, you can.” “How?”

Mitsy asked “Simple. Do what I do. Don’t sign the check.”
