I became a grandma in 1999. I have four children, and two of them are married. The married children each have four children. (Kind of sounds like a math problem, doesn’t it?)
Eight humans, tiny and big, call me Grandma. It has been said that grandkids are a reward for not killing your own kids. That may be true for some, but that was not my experience.
Holding a precious new life who is the offspring of your own progeny is indescribable. My relationship with my “grands” has made me aware of what children need and want: nurturing, love, attention, time, patience, and boundaries.
Spending time with your grandchildren can be rewarding if you include a reading activity, even when it means reading the same book 300 times. To see some of the ways I read to my grandchildren, check out my YouTube Channel The Principal Grandma.
A Grandma is always on the go. I’ll share more later.
