Grandma's Spark Too!
Saturday, January 15, 2011
I don't know how many of you on Spark are Grandmothers. I have 6 Grandchildren, from 4 different families -- from 4 of my 5 children---- My husband and I are lucky to have 3 of our children living here in our small town, so I do see 3 of these Grandkids, fairly regularly.
I never knew how I would feel being a Grandmother. -------It is wonderful ! When they call me , ""Grandma"", it is like music to my ears! I have never been their regular babysitter, but will drop everything , and be there , at weird times, when needed, when their regular sitter is unavailable-- I have been known to drive to their houses to sit them, at 5am----till their parents got off a shift---
I think it is important for a Grandmother not to be fat---- to try to have a figure of some sort, to be a role model to these kids--- I think its important for a Grandmother to be active-- to run , or walk, and stay fit,and to show these kids that to-day, Grandmothers don't become breatheless and can keep up to their antics---
And so Spark is a big part in my life right now----It sure has given me a better quality of life, which I hope to
pass on to my Grandkids-
