A Primer on Spoiling Granddaughters

I've been known to spoil my grandchildren. To that I plea guilty as charged. I didn't spoil their mothers (I have four girls) as much as I spoil them, but I didn't have parents to hand my children off to once they'd been filled with sugar.

Saturday was my four year-old granddaughter, Savannah's day with grandpa. Savannah lives in Arizona, but was visiting with her mother/my daughter and her two sisters - one older and one younger.

By way of full disclosure, I have never been in this mall before. I usually avoid malls (temples of greed), but they can be entertaining to a four year old girl.

This is a riding toy that you can rent and the kids ride
around the mall on them. Savy really liked it.

Then came a trip to the Disney store, where she was allowed to buy one item.

Holding the loot
Then we hit the candy store - because it's what you do.

And added to the burden she had to carry.

And then ice cream
And another ride on the motorized Hello Kitty. You can
ride them along the main corridor of the mall for about 50
or 60 meters. I'd never seen these things before.

And finally, my daughter/her aunt, Emilie spoiled her too. 

That's how it's done. Mischief managed.
