This blog post is for my sister Ruthie and my good friend Kathryn who have both just become grandma again. And, of course,  for their husbands, too, who add "pa" to "grand."

  •  Grandmas are moms with lots of frosting.  ~Author Unknown
  • Grandmothers are just antique little girls.  ~Author Unknown
  • Grandfathers are just antique little boys.  ~Author Unknown
  • Perfect love sometimes does not come until the first grandchild.  ~Welsh Proverb
  • To become a grandparent is to enjoy one of the few pleasures in life for which the consequences have already been paid.  ~Robert Brault
  • Being pretty on the inside means you don't hit your brother and you eat all your peas - that's what my grandma taught me.  ~Lord Chesterfield
  • Two things I dislike about my granddaughter - when she won't take her afternoon nap, and when she won't let me take mine.  ~Gene Perret
