I have always said any child with a grandparent is blessed. Now i get to be on the other end of that. At Christmas i found out i am going to be a grandma this summer. Yes there will be a lot of competition. Both new parents come from divorced homes. Both have several sets of grandparents as well. This baby will be loved. I find myself thinking about what it means to be a grandparent after the intensity of single parenting. I hope i will listen, and spend time with the child. I know with my own kids i was busy a lot with working, keeping house and being the main taxi driver. I know my kids lacked in mom time. I spent time with them all over the Christmas Holiday and i focused on really listening and not being anxious about the "what's next" getting here or there, just enjoying the moment. And i did Enjoy every moment. Thank God for second chances.
