A wise person once said, "Grandchildren are your reward for not killing your kids." And a wonderful reward they are. You have paid your dues for 25 or 30 years, and now receive all the fun and enjoyment while skipping the discipline and hard labor. I agree with every other grandparent I know, that my grandchildren are the best behaved/ cutest/ cleverest/ sweetest/ nicest/ handsomest/ smartest/ and every other positive "est" you can mention.
No two of our six grandchildren were born in the same state--we cover Utah, Washington, Arizona, Oregon, Vermont and Idaho. We are lucky to have three living close by. The others we see when we can, which works out to several times a year. I'm pleased that all the moms post weekly pictures and videos on their blogs, so that we can keep up with these special little people.
And here they are!
