Doing all of the fun things you missed doing with your children. Like baking cookies decorating pumpkins,eggs and house. Being a grandparent is the best.

I love the hugs and I love watching them discover new things.

If I had know that they so much fun, we would have had them instead. We have 11 ranging from 12 to 25. Life is good.

Doing fun stuff together with my 7 yo granddaughter. Being able to be silly.

The best part is being able to 'Play" with the girl rather than 'stay' with the girl.
As a mom, I always had them with me and it was work, constant with few breaks.
As a grandma, we go to Chuck E cheese, Tiny Town, the park, make things out of Playdoh, draw, read together.......and when I need space and some quiet, I can give her back to Mom.

Nice!

I have one grandson who will be 9 years old in January. I love being his grand mom so much. There is no best part. I just love everything about being "Grand Mom"

There is no best part over another best part. it is absolute bliss! I love every little thing, to every big thing. I just had my 11 month old grandson spend Thursday night with me. I have my home all finished and decorated for the holidays in a big way. His reaction was bigger then I even imagined. He is a funny little character, when he shows excitement he starts panting. he starts breathing hard with his wide eyes, then a huge smile will come on his face, then an excited yell, he did this for two hours. Omgosh he is so much fun! Next morning he woke up all excited and was awwwing over the trees and decorations again. I loved every single moment of my grandson, from the wondering if my daughter was pregnant by how she was acting before she gave me the great news to this very second. I love, love, love being a grandparent!!!! I think I lived to be a grandparent, I talked about it even at an early age. I am living all the little daydreams I would daydream about and then some. I can go on and on and on about why I love being a grandparent and how much fun it is but I will stop for now. I might chime in later again ;) Being a grandparent is heaven on earth :)
