I think we can all agree that there isn’t anything quite like a grandparent. The bond we have with our grandmas and grandpas is something very special and unique. What other person gets to spoil us, talk to us, guide us and smother us with love without ever having to discipline us? There is certainly not another person on earth who can publicly kiss and pinch our cheeks at our college graduation and not warrant a dirty look or a blush from embarrassment. Nope, not the grandparents.
Here are some reasons why I love my grandparents.
They never think I am fed enough even when I say I’m full.
There is nothing quite like baking with grandma….how does she make a chocolate chip cookie taste so good when she just follows the package???? Mystery……
They are my best friend, protector, defender and partner in crime all at once
They let us break all the ‘rules’
They’re my biggest supporter and believe in me when everyone else has given up
They wrestled with me as a child, played games with me as a young adult, cried with me as a teenager, and look at me with absolute pride as an adult.
Even though I am too big for grandpas lap I am never too big for his heart
They were my very first glimpse of a hero
They have shown me unconditional love even when I made it so hard keep loving me
Now that I have children of my own I am so thankful that my parents get to relish in the joys of grandparenting. Logan and Mason couldn’t have been more lucky to have the grandmas and grandpa that they have. I look forward to all the memories they have to build together one cookie at a time.
Thank you to my grandparents for always holding my hand throughout my life and loving me no matter what. Thank you to my parents for showing my kids what having good grandparents is all about.
Give your grandmas and grandpas a hug and tell them how much you love them….
