Enjoying my Grandchildren

I have four lovely grand daughters, and they are growing up fast, but what fun we have had together.

Enjoying my Grandchildren

When my first grand daughter was born, over 20 years ago, I was quite a young grandmother, in my forties, and it was fun to go swimming with her, then two others came along, and we went go carting, and all manner of stuff. I hasten to explain they live in America, and this was done during our annual visits. I continued to go to Wet and Wild with them, and even went on a canoe boat, dodging the rapids, an experience I will never forget, as along with Ashley, who was then 11 years old, we fell out, and it was hard getting back out of the water, because the currents were so strong.

I decided after that, to moderate my enthusiasm, and only join in things I could physically cope with, such as normal swimming, and some of the milder rides at Wet and Wild. It has worked so far, and my girls still seem delighted that their senior Nannie, does have some input, and is not just sitting at the side watching.

My youngest granddaughter lives in England, and is now 10 years old. She comes to stay at holiday time, and we have fun together. We go swimming, play crazy golf, and go for long walks with the dog. I think it’s so important if you possibly can, to be involved with your grandchildren, and to show them that you are still a kid at heart. They will remember you in years to come as a fun person, who shared such happy times with them, and took an interest in what they did,because grannies have more time than mum, and we are allowed to spoil them a little.

Next year I am going to teach my youngest grand daughter to play badminton, it is such a fun sport.

How wonderful!
I know you have to just have a blast with each and
every one of them.
They're also very lucky to have such a wonderful Grandma.
I have just been a grandma for a little over 5 months...
I'm loving it!
As always, Thank you for sharing.:)
