Being a Grandparent!!!!!

2 comments

I just found out my oldest daughter is pregnant and I couldn't be more thrilled. Finally, I'm going to be a Grammy!! Thinking about it though has made me realised how unprepared I am, what's been your experience of Grand-parenting??

Congratulations SaraD, it's one of the proudest moments you will have in life! I say just enjoy it, as a Grandparent you get to shower them with love, gifts and wisdom. It's really great. Important also to watch them when you can and give the parents a few hours of rest!

Many congratulations on this news, it really is a special time. I've become a Grandfather on 7 occasions now, so I feel I can speak about it! I would say just spend as much time with them as possible while they are young and form those close relationships, things they can't talk to their parents about when they are older they will be able to talk with you!

    Hello, I just wondered what people's experiences were of finding relationships in our time of life. What is the best way to do so nowadays? Any advice about online dating?

    Hi there, I live in CA and have done pretty much all my life, bar a couple of periods of service. I have travelled extensively internationally, but never seen much beyond my home state here in the US. Now that I'm, dare I say, too old to travel overseas, I'd like to explore my own backyard. Can anyone recommend any good states/cities to start with?

    Wasn't sure where to put this post, so I thought I'd use the new section. I'm planning to take a vacation, and looking at cruises. Has anyone got any experience?
