My parents recently moved to be closer to my sister and her family. My niece has already claimed a room in their house as her own. I know how exciting that can be because I too had a room at my grandparents house. I am pretty sure that my cousins were all jealous of me and still have a bit of resentment, but I don't care. The summers that I spent at my grandparents are some of the best memories that I have and I wouldn't trade them for anything. Besides, my cousins were several years younger than me so the room could have been claimed by somebody else once I had gone off to college. To my knowledge, only one of my cousins ever stayed the summer with my grandparents so it remained my room until the house was no longer their home.
I hope that my niece creates as many wonderful memories of the time she spends at my parents house as I have of the time I spent with my grandparents. I also thought she needed to make that claim official so I spent a little time in the craft room the other day and created a sign for her to hang up.
If their is interest, I will post directions on how I made the sign. Have a great day!
