1. Yes it is the best!!! I’m gammie to one and mimi to another (both 2 years old until the oldest turns 3 in November). I’ve had to hold my tongue, and then there were times when I just didn’t…it’s a hard place to be. We have so much wisdom to share but need to allow them to learn for themselves too.
    Thanks for your transparency and encouragement!!
    We grannies/gammies need to stick together!!

  2. I love this so much!
    You know what I first noticed while reading this? You weren’t offended!!
    In these relationships between adult-daughter-mom and us, as mom-grandma, there’s no room for offense. We remember the grace that’s either been given to us OR the grace that we wish we’d received as young moms.
    I think on my mom when my children were younger. She guided me when I asked her and she somehow always remembered the boundaries. I’m wondering how she pulled that off! haha!
    I really commend your daughter for actually bringing it up instead of letting it simmer under the surface! It says a whole lot about your relationship with her!
    You’re a gem of a Granny!

      You are always building me up SISTER!!!

      I am proud of my girl, her honesty instead of stewing is so healthy.
      And thankful to God for His power to ‘shut up!’ 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Sounds like I’d love to know your mama!

      Thank you FRIEND!!! xo

    Well, you sure did better than I would have. lol
    My daughter has a dog, no child and I find myself saying “you should” but then I correct myself and tell her “hes your dog, you can do whatever you like”. Hopefully by the time the grand kids start coming I will do a better job of keeping my thoughts to myself. 🙂 Kudos to you !
