It starts as a baby: the infatuation with a bowl and wooden spoon. {Just how loud a sound can you make?} It grows with your child through toddlerhood into elementary school. If you’re lucky, stays with them into adulthood.

Remember when we were kids?  We played in the neighborhood until it was dark.  We talked to our neighbors.  We had fun.  These days, everyone is so busy.  We give the neighbors a quick wave as we rush off to, well, everywhere!  Summer is coming to a close, it reminded me of those long summer days as a kid playing outside with the neighbors while our parents chatted.  The best way to replicate those “good old days?”  A neighborhood block party!  I mean, who doesn’t love a good party?

My husband and I number among the 80 percent of grandparents who live more than 50 miles from their grandchildren. Our four are 65, 600 and 3,000 miles away. Every day in our toy store we meet grandparents trying to transcend the distance life has put between them and their grandchildren…and grandparents whose grandkids live right around the corner, or even under the same roof.
