My Mother is the best mom. She’s even a better grandmother. She spends as much time as she can with the kids. She adores them and they adore her. This is a picture of her feeding Jonah. It’s not just about eating with these two. The two of them sit there and laugh and laugh. I think it’s such a gift to have a relationship with your grandparents. I adored the grandmother that I knew. My Dads Mom loved us kids like crazy (my mothers mom passed away when my mom was just 18. None of us kids knew her).
My husband and I often talk about what a blessing it is to have my folks be so present in our kids lives. My Dad calls first thing in the morning on the boys Birthdays. He calls every Holiday. He called again last night to SKYPE bedtime stories. My kids know their Nana and Grampy love them very much. They have that security and also stories and history of who they are and where they come from. We are very blessed
