So many wonderful little teachers….lesson learned

Published September 15, 2013 by The Hip Grandmother

Today is my youngest nephews birthday party. Family and friends have come to celebrate with us. Football is on the big screen with all the men piled into the living room while all the women and kids are sitting in the dining room with all the kids joyously eating their birthday cake and ice cream. Everyone crowded around the birthday boy to watch him blow out his candles and open his presents..

Cake and ice cream is always welcomed. 🙂

The day before, we had a wonderful cook-out with my new friend and her family. In their own way, her children have eased my fears about hearing the pitter-patter of little feet and knowing that every child has a different personality, little people are mostly full of smiles and joy. Moments such as this make this transition so much easier for me. I find myself cooking children snacks for the neighbor’s children because I know they enjoy these little thing. They don’t know it, but they are changing my mind in so many positive ways in accepting children. I thank them for this from the bottom of my heart. Last night, I was informed that my daughter felt “fluttering” in her tummy. I do notice a little bump on her and its going to get bigger and bigger while I get more excited.

My point to this story is that I am starting to get “maternal” in the very sense of a grandmother. These little babies are teaching me so many wonderful things to accept this baby, whether it is a boy or a girl. They are teaching me innocent kindness that you can never find in a story book or on a website somewhere.

  • What a wonderful post! I feel the same way you do each and every time I am called into a classroom as a supply teacher. Children teach me so much about everything in life! I am glad you are getting excited……My mother-in-law tells me that it is so different as a grandmother…..not any less than being a mom…just different…..more relaxed, calm, and able to step back and really enjoy the journey instead of worrying about everything you worry about as a mom. I look forward to reading more about your journey!

    • Thank you! These little angels are reminding me what I am living for….they trust and invite me to view a part of their little “world” of what the things (mostly their toys and such) that are SO important to them. Like I said before, I have never been as maternal as I should have been and I apologize to my daughter for that. I guess this is their little way of opening my eyes and realizing that I can do it again….this time from afar. HA!
