We are the ones that love to see our children and their children in settings that are remembered with much fondness. I know I enjoy seeing my son and his children doing some of the same things that we did when he was a youngster. Grandpa loves watching them play road hockey! Some of the funniest memories come from when he played with his children. They still laugh an awful lot about some of those times.
When Mother's Day rolls around (and it does every year), sometimes Grandmothers get overlooked. But, I must say this, when we are remembered, it is a wonderful feeling.
We grandmothers are called upon to look after little ones when Mom and Dad just need some "quiet" time on their own. Date nights can be a rarity when you have little ones that are always on the go!
I'm just getting back from a week at their house, while mom and dad headed south for a 10 year anniversary "get away"! Believe me, grandmomming for a week at a time can be a workout!
Having said that, I came across a great book for Grandmothers (and there is even one for Grandfathers), that makes being the "Grandparent" a special treat! It would make a great little gift for that special "Grandma" in your life! Especially great at Mother's Day!
