Getting the grandkids
For the weekend
Starts out sweet and calm
Soon it turns to chaos
Grandchildren are said to be all play and no work. Send em' home when they get cranky, is how the saying goes. However, grandparent's should not miss out on the opportunity presented to them. They are not expected to discipline their grandchildren and this opens up an avenue for a different kind of relationship. Grandchildren often rely on their grandparents when thing are tense at home. Parents often rely on their parents to help raise their children in this confusing and complex world. Grandparents would do well not to squander the opportunity given to them.

I gaze through the window pane,
At the freshly mown lawn.
The deep green color
Takes me back to a day gone by.
By the time you read this, you will be a big boy.
I know you will be kind, funny, wise, sensitive, interesting, and a ball of fire!
Your parents are all of these things.
I know you will be strong and a wonderful hugger.
I have a grandson I have seen once when he was 3, he is soon to be 10. He has an older sister and the last time I saw her she was 4.
My son and I always had a good relationship until he...
When God was making our granddaughter,

To make a grandma's dream come true?"
This is the perfect poem. My granddaughter is Madison and almost 7 and has blue eyes...I could've sworn this poem was made for My Madison. Awesome
Sometimes I really do wonder,
Why they are called grand?
Then I know a loving grandmother
Can always fully understand.
This for my son and daughter. I have watched you grow through the years from tiny babies to loving parents of your own. You have brought laughter and tears and sleepless nights sitting with...
I'm here, my precious grandchild.
Come, climb upon my knee.
You are my little love.
You mean the world to me.
When parents are busy, grandparents have time for grandchildren. If grandchildren understand them, they will not suffer from loneliness in their old age.
God said, "I have something special for you.
I thought I would send one, but I just sent two."
Grandaughters they be, and it's really nice.
Heart felt sweet kindness, sentiments of a father first, a grandads joys is something that nothing in this world can compare. Yet grandma's could supersede by ways of more milk & cookies.
Ah! My granddaughter! My joy.
She lightens my load.
She's like a new toy.
She smiles at me, ever so slightly.
Being a mom takes everything you have to be a good mom. Surprise, every day you do it. Every day you're proud. Each day turns into years. You are much too dedicated to realize it. Now you are...
