Kids are in the house, and by "kids" I mean Deena Bean, 38, and her kids, five and one-and-a-half.
Lots of laughs and fun (hiding dinosaurs and building fires in the fireplace AND in the studio stove!).
One of the zanier aspects of being a grandparent is the notion that we are perceived as being over the hill. And, while I might argue with the status of exactly where the hill is, I have to admit I can see the slope down the other side from here. And, full disclosure, when I was a kid it was very hard for me to ever imagine that my parents or grandparents were ever young and spry and, well, sexy.
