There is Nothing More Fulfilling

Grandchildren are all yours to love, play with, share wisdom with, and more.

Lessons Learned

For what it is worth, here are some lessons I have learned about becoming a grandparent.

Being a grandparent is thought-provoking.

When you have that grandbaby, it will make you think about how you raised your own children.

Your children will finally come to you for advice and may even take it.

Suddenly, you are a wealth of knowledge and will be more than happy to share it.

“I’m going to be your grandpa! I have the biggest smile. I’ve been waiting to meet you for such a long, long while.”  — Billy Crystal.

Your kids' rules are your rules.

So, hold on tight. Don't take offense. And do as they say with their child.

Times, they have a-changed...

... and they will continue to change. Sleeping routines, pacifiers, discipline, feeding schedules; go with the flow and don't stress about it!

Your grandbabies will be the cutest in the hospital. They will be geniuses. There will be no end to what they can do in life. In fact, they may have hung the moon itself.

Keep the old traditions and create new ones.

You have a clean slate, so take full advantage!

You are going to spend some money.

Maybe this is a confession… or perhaps it is accurate.

"An hour with your grandchildren can make you feel young again. Anything longer than  that, and you start toage quickly."

Gene Perret

And you are going to need to get in shape.

Of course, children have endless energy. Do you?

Enjoy every moment-- soak it all up. They are so worth it!
