About the Author
Mary Murray Bosrock grew up in Sandusky, Ohio and lives in St. Paul, Minnesota. Mary got her wings when her two sons, Matt and Steve, gave her six granddaughters within eight years. After growing up with six brothers and one sister, Mary was used to boys. She was amazed by these little girls who noticed things like arm fat, brown spots, veins, and dropping chins. She learned to love what she couldn’t change by turning it into a story. The grandgirls loved the story so much, Mary decided to share with other grandmas.
