... some of the things you enjoy about being a GP? Whether you celebrate the upcoming GP Day or not, I thought this would be a good time to share this feel-good article about GC...

... and to ask you how you feel about being a GP, if your are one, whether near or far (or how you feel about being a parent, for that matter, etc.)

I like it when they come to visit me for the weekend. Then they go back home and I can rest. When I had my surgery, my GD gave me a balloon that she wrote "get well soon" on with a marker. Better than a store bought one from the gift shop. There is nothing like the feeling I get when they hug me and tell me they love me.

I have been a grandmother for less than a month. I enjoy holding our tiny GS and just looking at him. He is so soft and cuddly. I also enjoy watching DH smile when he holds him, not to mention DS and DIL, who are awe-struck. Today I fed him some of a bottle. Friends who are grandmothers told me it is an amazing feeling which can't quite be comprehended until you experience it. I thought, "mm-hm, we'll see."  But it's true! I am in love.

Joy- It's always a joy to see them -- from the moment they arrived- I was fortunate enough to see all but one be born, to watch them take their first breaths and hear their first tiny cry announcing their arrival- It's hysterical how they teach each other to do things, and how each one learns something much younger than the one before them- At age two or just before the youngest climbed up on the table, separated the paper plates, opened the pizza box and slapped a slice on each plate with purpose- And at age one the expression of surprise when the oldest realized she was walking- Priceless- I'm fortunate to have a daughter who has allowed me to be a part of her life- I think that might be the best part of being a grandmother-

Congratulations on your new GS! Such an exciting time! :)
