The other day, I saw a website that did a ‘Mailbox Monday’ post. I thought that was a clever catchy title. I wanted to share that little phrase with you, my Dear Reader. Maybe you haven’t heard of it before, like I hadn’t.
You can dub your Mondays as Mailbox Monday and make a special effort to send e-mail to your grandchildren that day.
Do you worry that you’ll run out of things to say if you e-mail them every Monday? Why not send them a joke, a recipe, a photo you took, or a motivating quote? Send them a fun quiz or create a logic puzzle for older grandchildren.
Share the story about the day your grandchild was born and how you felt — especially when you were first able to hold your newborn bundle of joy.
Send a story about something their parent (your child) did when s/he was your grandchild’s age.
Share an interesting news story that they might not be aware of.
Most importantly, tell them how special they are and that you love them.
Teen-aged grandchildren disdain e-mail. It’s oh so old-fashioned. They’re into texting. So, have a Texting Tuesday for them. (Ha! I made that phrase up . . . or at least I’ve never seen or heard anybody using that before . . .) Do a Texting Tuesday — assuming you have a cell phone AND that you know how to text. 🙂
