8 reasons why being a Grandparent is better than being a parent

Grandparents' day is September 8th in 2013 and I plan to celebrate it by just being a Grandma because I love being a grandma, love it.  My husband adores being a grandpa.  Being a grandparent is the greatest job on earth. It is like being a parent, yet not really.  Don't tell my daughters but I simply cannot believe how much better it is than being a parent.  Don't get me wrong, I loved being a parent but boy, that is one tough job.  Being a grandparent? It's all fun and frolic! And for me, just the sewing and quilting alone is simply out of this world.  But I think there are 8 reasons which might be more universal.   Flip through my pictures and see the Top 8 reasons why being a Grandparent is better than being a parent!

Then celebrate these 8 reasons on September 8, Grandparents' day!

Plus, let me know which are your top reasons.


Sew happy!

    My passions are quilting and sewing. Add to that French, Spanish, books, swimming, travels, new restaurants, biking and chocolate and you have me. All of these are best shared with family and friends. Except for chocolate, I prefer not to share that.
