I AM A GRANDMA

BEING A GRANDMA, THERE ARE NO WORDS

On September 27th at around 6 PM I became a grandma. Now of course I have known for many months that I was going to the grandmother status, but I did not know how that adorable little face would change my life. That little 8 pounds and 5 ounces of pure sweetness has immediately captured a place in my heart.

A DIFFERENT KIND OF LOVE

BEING A GRANDMA, THERE ARE NO WORDS

Obviously, I love my children. They were my first experience with unconditional love. As their mother, there is nothing any one of them can do to lose my love. Even with all the trial and tribulations of growing up, my love for them has never wavered. However, I will say it is a love that comes with responsibility. As their parents, my husband and I have a duty to guide our children in the best path to adulthood. Their success or failures are directly tied to us.

With baby Aksel I do not have that same feeling of responsibility. Now don’t get me wrong, I know my husband and I will help shape our little man into the adult he will become. However, I have raised my son in a way that he knows it will be his and Taylor’s job to be completely committed to their little one’s future. With that being said, a grandparent’s love is more free. I am free to be simply his advocate, to love and indulge him as all good grandparents before us have done.

MY BABY IS A DADDY

BEING A GRANDMA, THERE ARE NO WORDS

Being a grandma means that my baby is now a dad. The minute the doctor opened up the nursery door and I saw my grown up man of a son stroking this little baby’s head with tears in his eyes, my heart exploded. I mean, there are not words to describe this feeling. Tears flowed from my eyes. Seeing his love for this little guy made me feel that his father and I had done something right. He loves his little man the same way his dad loves him. Immediately, I was reminded of how his dad had the same tears in his eyes the day Nathaniel was born.

GROWING FAMILY EQUALS MORE LOVE

BEING A GRANDMA, THERE ARE NO WORDS

Before Aksel was born I had a pretty great life, an awesome husband, three amazing kids, a pretty wonderful daughter-in-law, and a great mom and mother-in-law. Of course this family has a lot of love, but what a change a baby can make. Now that Aksel has entered this family, I feel that the love has doubled, no tripled, no went to infinity. I am looking forward to this holiday season and beyond with our little bundle of joy.

  6. Congratulations on your first grandchild! We have 7 so I know how great it is. I once saw a bumper sticker that said “If I had known how great it is to have grandchildren, I would have had them first”
    We like to invoke the grandparent privilege of spoiling them then sending them home.
