When we first became parents, we were thrilled.
A tiny human was now part of our lives and we were overwhelmed, but looking forward to a lifetime of getting to know our child. How would we do it all? There was so much to learn. There were so many new emotions and concerns we had never even thought of, like, making sure he pooped and peed enough. How much formula is just the right amount? What if he won’t burp? At times he would not stop crying, why?
It all worked itself out. We did it! We have been and are successful parents. Yay!!!
Now the reward.
We get to be grandparents!
Let me tell you the 10 reasons why I love being a grandma!
10-Grandchildren are a blessing!
It is amazing how blessed I feel knowing that I get to have these little ones in my life.
9-Their little happy faces light up when they see you.
When we drive up to the house and they are waiting for us- it’s the best.
8-Grandchildren are adorable.
It is almost impossible to see your grandchild and not want to squish her (or him).
7-Little hugs around the neck are the best.
To have my grandchildren hug me is to know that I am an important part of their world.
6-Grandchildren are very entertaining.
They are cute, funny, silly, dramatic, and emotional.
5-Spoiling them is expected.
It is so fun to buy them things, make them things, feed them things, and kiss them, and hug them, and love them so much!!
4-Grandchildren have sweet little piggy’s on their feet that need kisses.
3-They are your reward for not killing your kids.
I’m so glad I didn’t kill their dad when he was a teenager. Really.
2-Grandchildren remind us that God is good, and that the world must go on.
How can you doubt it when you see that face?
1-When you’re a grandparent you get to send them home, and get a good nights sleep!!
Now for the great news! This little guy will be joining our family in September!
Look at this precious little soul!
Can you stand it?
I can’t wait to be a grandma…again!
I am so excited for this new baby to love!!!
