Yesterday I learned of a blog that I was getting traffic to my blog from. It is written by a beautiful young mom of three. Her blog post was titled When I am Old and Gray. She shared how she is a big time planner in her personal life. Although she still has a very young family she is already thinking and planning on what her Grandma Style is going to be when she is old and gray. She is very honest in her post regarding her own parents and her in law parents as grandparents to her children. She is very grateful and loving towards the grandparents but her wants for her own children and the grandparents are what has triggered her planning waaaaaaaaay ahead on the kind of grandparent she wants to be for her own grandchildren.
I totally get her post. I have heard the same story many times from the young parents that I have associated with over the last several years.
The question is: If our grown children were the "grandparent stylists" for us would we be "victims" or the "happy winners" after they helped us tweak our grand parenting style?
This young blogger happened upon Grandma's Little Pearls recently. She shared my blog with her readers as it being the kind of grandma stuff she is now planning to do when she gets old and gray!
I am very flattered!
