SO YOU’RE GOING TO BE A GRANDPARENT! (Part 1)

It is a grand moment when you learn you are going to be a grand parent. Hopefully this is good news, but sometimes the circumstances make it a difficult moment to celebrate. However, for most of us this news of pending grandparenthood is very emotional and thrilling.

I remember the first time we heard this news. Our daughter and son-in-law came by to give us our Valentine- one for grandpa and grandma! We were stunned, thrilled, pleased, and momentarily shocked. We were going to be grandparents- we just looked at each other with huge smiles and some tears. Immediately I went to my daughter to hug her and ask how she was feeling- my baby was going to have a baby! A grand moment! Amazingly my other daughter surprised us just two months later with a gift of two baby picture frames- one for both grandchildren- another due in November! We were overflowing with joy and gratitude! We wanted the whole world to know and I am sure we bored our very patient and loving friends with this happy news.

So now what do you do? You’re going to be grandparents but still have many months to wait for the blessed event. What can grandparents do to prepare for grandchildren? Do we need special training? Being the organizer I am, I really took this time seriously and had a lot of fun being creative in the planning. Now that I have nine grandchildren, each as special as the first one, I have a few suggestions for how to make this waiting time fun, meaningful, and productive.
