What to do? - Mama
As boring as some of these things might be, we all do it at one time or another. It may be the only thing happening worth talking about in our lives. I know that I'm prone to "kvell" more about my new great-grandson than I was about any other younger family members. I just think the things he does are often precocious for his age while my sisters who have just had their first grandchildren, roughly the same age, might beg to differ. It's a grin and bear it for the bored participants. Children are being raised much different than they were in my generation. As far as bragging is concerned, my dad had a saying, while it differs somewhat from your grandmother's, the intent is more or less the same, "self praise stinks".
