Quote Any other "youngish" grandmas or grandpas out there?


I am about 2 months away from being a "youngish" grandpa (45). Our youngest, Katie, is 6, and is extremely excited about being an Aunt... she was a little worried at first about the tremendous responsibility of Aunthood, and wasn't sure she could handle it, but we assured her she wasn't TOTALLY responsible for the nephew's upbringing. She won't have to change diapers; just help him with his letters and numbers, sing him some songs, and play with him - she was okay with all that!

Congratulations to you!

Congratulations! The Grandmas seem to get younger all the time. 43 is not too far off for me but since my oldest is 10, I figure I'll have a while to wait yet. But I figure it's great to be a young Grandma 'cause then you'll have all that time and energy to give him.

Thanks for sharing the happy news!

Stamping Kids

I was working with a group of kindergarten children today. We were discussing Maple Sugaring & Maple Trees etc. As we were walking on the trail I asked the children if they would like a maple leaf stamp on their hands...... well they tackled me! I had 12 little hands poking at me. Once I mentioned the stamp, the kids had no problem keeping up with me on the trail. The adults had their hands stamped too!

Smiles all around for me today... what a nice feeling. I had to share!

All I can say is..... Ummmmmmm.....
I am glad you weren't camping with us on Friday night at the CCC Gathering. =) We did miss you, though, and your name did come up a few times, too! We were cold, but **THAT** sure would have made for an 'interesting' time. Heee
Congrats on the new addition!!!

Well, I feel youngish. I was just barely 52 when granddaughter #1 was born, and I'll be almost 54 when the next one arrives in April. My mother always told me that spoiling the grandkids was her job, and I am trying to follow in her footsteps. My Mom was always concerned that she couldn't keep up with the material spoiling of the 'other' sets of grandparents, but I could see that it's your time that really spoils them and that is what they remember. I can't wait until I can take Mia to the Children's Symphony--that girl loves music. Enjoy the little bundle. Almost nothing feels as good as a baby sleeping in your arms.
Congratulations.
