The Grandmas Are Here

Thanks for joining me!

For many of us, our first attempt in this new role of becoming a grandmother is “what is the baby going to call me”. It becomes a race for the youngest sounding title, and we all hope we don’t get stuck with “Grandma”. Regardless of what you end up with. There seems to be no better sound then hearing it from the little ones we love.

I wanted GRANDMA

So many family and friends tried to convince me that I was too young to be called Grandma. They came up with so many ideas. Some were pretty funny. Some were really weird. But Grandma is what I knew I was. I was proud.

Still even today, I love to blurt out “I’m a grandma”. Just to see the different reactions on people’s faces. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t just walk up to random strangers and yell it in their face, haha. Although that could make a funny YouTube video. But I do love to casually sneak it in a conversation when it’s appropriate.

Now the time comes when you are ready to hand them back to their parents. You look in the mirror and your hair is flying in every direction. Toys are scattered all around. More dirty glasses than there are children. It’s exhausting. Geez I miss them and I can’t wait for them to come back tomorrow. Haha.

Now every child and grandma relationship is different. Some children are so well behaved. Some are just wild and crazy. The same goes for grandmas. Some grandmas can be sweet and kind, some grandmas can be all over the place. Some grandmas are neat and tidy and some of us grandmas are, well, we’re just a hot mess.

Now no matter your title or demeanor. We all have our ups and downs. We have our awesome moments, and our fails. But wouldn’t you know it, they still love us. So hold your head up high Grandma’s. Blurt out that amazing title you earned, and share it with the world. Be bold, you’re gold.

What title are you blessed with?

A little about myself. My name is Grandma. At least that's what my grandson just told me. I am Forty-five years old. I have three children, two grandchildren, and one fur baby. I became a grandmother at thirty-eight years old, and I love every single minute of it.

  1. I’m a Grandma, too! Although at first I was called Abuela until the Other Grandmother decided she didn’t mind, after all, being old enough to be called Abuela. So now I’m Grandma, which is what I wanted to begin with.
