Aria and Trent

I thought I would share a glimpse of my personal life today. These are my grandchildren; Aria and Trent. It's simply astonishing how quickly they grow!
I had always heard that being a grandparent is completely different than being a parent, and the love that you have for your grandchildren just doesn't compare to the love you have for your own children. In my mind I thought "Uh huh... blah, blah, blah..." But, since becoming a "Grammy", I completely understand that!
I was in the delivery room with my daughter and her husband when Trent was born, and I instantly fell in love with that little guy! There's just something that happens when your "baby" has a baby! That was the first time in my life I cried tears of pure joy!
I absolutely love my grandchildren with every fiber of my being. There is nothing that I wouldn't do for them. I find myself worrying about them in a way that I never worried about my own daughter; it's impossible to explain.
I am so proud of the parents that my daughter and son-in-law are! Their world revolves around their children and I have no doubt that Aria and Trent feel how very much they are loved.


  1. The kids are sooooo cute, I'm a few years away from the possibility of being a Granddad. Just wait until you're a Great Granny, LOL

  2. I think they're pretty cute, but I also know I'm very partial!
    I will never be a Great Granny... they call me "Grammy"... like the award! LOL
