On being the Grandma

So I’ve decided that I like being the grandma.  When you’re the grandma you can sit around all day long holding a baby.  I’ve been wanting to do that for years. 


When you’re the grandma you can take (and post) endless pictures of your adorable grandchild (who is surely the cutest baby that has ever graced the planet) and everyone cuts you a little slack.


When you’re the grandma you can videotape your grandchild and think that video clip is the cutest thing you’ve ever seen.  (Especially 25 seconds into the video.)

When you’re the grandma you can spend your time (some of it, anyway) making adorable creations for your cutie to wear.  (more pictures later, I promise.)


Quite possibly the best thing when you’re the grandma is that you can smooch that little baby to your heart’s content.  Other people let you hold their babies, but I’m certain they would report you to the police become uncomfortable if you started covering the baby with kisses.   But when you’re the grandma—kiss away.


What can I say—I’m LOVING being the grandma!
