We go on adventures with eldest grandson days when he can have one to one time as he so often has to put his plans on hold due to his younger brother having cerebral palsy. He never complains just accepts he can't always do the things he would like to do so we treasure the times we can let him choose activities which don't need to be cut short.
I was there when my grandson was born 5 years ago. He came bursting into the world and stole my heart. His mummy has special needs and my son is her main carer. I have been involved so much with my grandson's life. He's always happy and he's very sensitive to his mum's condition. He makes me giggle, go on fairground rides, chase butterflies... the list is endless. Our relationship is so special to both of us, and I hope it remains so for many years. Love him to bits.?
Grandchildren love the one to one time you can give them in this busy world. It's good to do different activities with the varying age groups but also nice at times to do some things altogether like going to the cinema where granny can enjoy a children's film too!
Spending time and playing with my grandaughter and giving her my undivided attention without thinking what else I have to do. I love playing games with her and taking her walks as she loves looking at everything and ask lots of questions.
While I was helping my granddaughter with some knitting, I was vaguely aware of a photograph being taken. It appeared on Mother's Day on Facebook. My daughter put it on, thanking me for my endless patience with my grandchildren.
It's easy to be patient when you are not doing it full time!
Every moment with grandchildren is just so precious.
For their unconditional love, how they make sure a piece of cake or a chocolate is specially reserved just for me. For the sheer wonder of observing their development, their unbridled passion for learning and discovery, how they find even the simplest thing amazing. And for their infectious energy, how they keep us young.
My Grandaughters live in Durham which means I don't get to see them very often as they live too far from me in Essex. When I do see them I make the most of spending lots of quality time with them both ( 8 and 6) we go to the park and feed squirrels, go to the zoo and have great fun feeding the animals and just have fun racing after the 2 year old when she decides to run away. It's lovely being able to spend quality time with them and I make the most of it when they visit time with them while they are so young and such fun, children grow up so fast these days and I want them to have great memories of Nanny and Grandad being fun like I did when I was their age.
I love that they always seem so happy to spend time with me. The way they rush into my house always makes me feel special. I have more time to spend with them and I try to make it count. I think I must be doing something right!
Mine is doubly special, with twin granddaughters: we are friends & playmates, confidantes and, sometimes, I'm their stand-in mum if they're unwell. Most of all they remind me daily of the unfettered joy to be found in the smallest thing when you are a child (a useful fillip when you're getting old!)
