Grateful for Grands

 

Tiny feet prance between hearts exploding with love.

 

The apple of their eye.

 

Basking in the giggles, milestones, and special moments

 

Encouraging, supporting, and advising.

 

Watching their babies understand what it’s all about.

 

This week I am grateful for grandparents!

What are you grateful for? Go link up with Leigh Ann at Genie in a Blog.

    What would the world be without grandparents? I don’t want to know! Lovely post, friend.

    That 3rd pic is precious! I love seeing my parents with my daughter. It’s just so sweet it’s ridiculous!

    How cute is that little skirt! Awwwee..

    And? Oh yes. I’d be in a padded room right now if it wasn’t for my family support system that is firmly in place 🙂

    Aw, so so sweet! These grandparents really make our lives special!

      They really do!
      I hope my daughter realizes it when she’s old enough to spend time with them on her own accord

    So cute! My parents are helpful and loving with our kids, but DH’s aren’t. You are blessed.

      What a bummer about your hubs’ parents.
      Sometimes people don’t see what a blessing they have until it’s too late.

    Such a lovely post. Thank you Leighann. Being a first time grandmother, is alot like being a first time Mom. You know what to do, but sometimes mistakes are made. Best of all is the unconditional love we feel every time we see her beautiful face, whether in person or in these pictures. We have a lot to be greatful for too. xoxoxo

    Wine. Since it’s the first week of football season and I’m (unofficially and not really) single parenting, I’m grateful for wine.

    Also? Such sweet pictures!

      I’m always grateful for wine.
      And bedtime.

    This made me tear up. I wish my mom lived closer, or that we got along better with hubs’ parents, because my kid rarely gets to have grandparent time.

    You’re very blessed.

      When I moved away, prior to having the babe, I was torn apart not being near my parents. We now live close to mine but not Brians.
      It’s very hard not being near them both.

    I am grateful for my mom (aka Grandma). She is so awesome with my kids. Love all the pictures.

      I don’t know what I would do without my parents as well!

    We are currently very pissed at my husbands parents (a.k.a Gram and Pip) for not attending my sons third birthday. They are both retired and decided to fack off up north the day of his party…the cottage is only 2 hours away. Anyways they never even called him.
    But my parents? They are like total rockstars in Chunky’s life. I am truly amazed how they interact with my Chunky and how he lights up when they are present. It’s an amazing bond that they have and I’m grateful that he has at least ONE set of grandparents that would do anything for him!

      How heart breaking!
      Have you spoken to them about why they would do this?
      It seems like a shallow thing to do.
      Oh Kimberly how sad.
      So glad you have your parents.

    My parents are so involved in my boys life and I’m so amazingly grateful! I love to watch them interact and making memories!

      It’s quite something to see them engage with one another.
      They must think the same thing about us.

    Such beautiful photos! I don’t know what I’d do without my mom. She’s an awesome grandma to my boys and my furbabies.

    OK, fine, my MIL is an awesome grandmother as well. In a very different way, though. Funny how that is.

      We are lucky to be blessed with great grands on both sides. If I get down to it I have no complaints.
      They are very different in their parenting styles though!

    I love these photos! I grew up with my maternal grandparents living right behind us and I loved it. That’s the one thing we’ll never be able to give Klaw by being a military family. At least by being on the East Coast for a bit, we’re closer and he does know his grandparents (and great-grandparents!).

    • multitaskingmumma

      It’s a very special relationship that I can’t imagine her not having.
      Lucky Klaw for having some time with his grandparents.

    Oh. Sigh. Love.

    Grandparents are the best invention ever. These are all incredibly sweet photos. 🙂

      It’s really a great thing to see! I didn’t realize how much it would mean.

    I don’t know what we’d do without grandparents … my parents that is. They have been so supportive and a huge part of our childcare. Love them!
