Why It's Fun to Have Grandchildren!

You get to attend sporting events where you know the players...

...and get excited about their performance!

You're safe while with them.

To see a smile like this melts the heart and makes you smile!

You learn the newest fashion trend!

You get to play like a kid again!

If you're like me, your arts and crafts skills are the same as theirs!

You can get "down" at a dance party! (unless you're grandpa)

They're ready with a hug and kiss even before you request it!

You can always get some comic relief!

Or just enjoy the sweetness!

But sometimes the nice thing about being a grandma is:

you get to send them home!

I'm one lucky grandma!

You are clearly the coolest grandma around.

And thanks for letting Camille hang out with us tonight!

Ya, the sending them home part is sometimes the best......don't get me wrong! I love the little rugrats, but the old gray mare she ain't what she used to be.

You have the cutest grand-kids. You are one lucky grandma. Did you get a new car???

Natalie said...

Your grandkids are adorable. I will be seeing mine soon. :)

Natasha said...

I must make sure my mum sees this as I am sure she would agree with every single word...including your last ones!

Blessings and best wishes,

I love being a grandma, too. Grandchildren are definitely a blessing. (It's so fun to watch our children become adults and parents ; )

Your grandchildren are adorable. Enjoy.

Your grandkids are so cute!

I'm hoping that one of these days my married kids will decide they're ready for babies! My son has a dog and says I'm its grandma (psh!), but I told him there pretty much needs to be some human "multiplying and replenishing the earth" going on for me to use that title! ;)
