Being a grandmother is the best! Don’t get me wrong, I loved being a mother and raising my kids. But let’s face it, now I can spoil the grands and send them home if they get too unruly or too hyped on sugar, not that I would ever provide that to them…ha!
I admit it. It’s a lot more fun to have someone else, like their parents, to do the hard stuff or that discipline thing. You remember, right? That discipline thing that makes the little beasties more bearable for other humans that have to spend time with them. Besides, they do have to eventually grow up to become responsible caring adults as future world citizens. But this grandma has found that this growing up thing happens even faster for the grandkids than it did for the kids. So, in the meantime, Grandma’s just wanna have fun with the grandkids and then send them home … after some ice cream.
If you have a favorite thought you like most about being Grandma, Nana, Mamaw, or your special name that your Grands call you, please feel free to share a comment below.
Do you dream of going somewhere big? Do you remember the joy of going somewhere new that you have dreamed about? While there are many places I would like to go and dream of going; I often find that time constraints, money, weather, or other obligations keep me from going everywhere on my list.
However; I find just getting in the car and exploring within a tanks drive from my home, takes me to places, people, sights, and yes —smells that are new to me. I love exploring and knowing what is to be found down a certain road, regardless of the season. Maybe I will find a covered bridge, or a new hiking trail, or at least one new to me. Maybe I will find Amish fried pies filled with all different kinds of delicious fillings and have fun talking with the people who made them. The excitement can be felt in the crisp, cool air as the leaves start to turn red and gold. Who knows where I will end, as I just decide to go! What have you found on some of your explorations?
