As I sit here at my desk…11:50 AM after, drinking my coffee, paying some bills, doing 3 loads of laundry, and a few other chores for the day, I began to think about my grandchildren; as I often do. <3 <3
I began to contemplate ahead to their future. I certainly think it’s my duty as a grandmother to think about these things, very carefully. <3
This thinking pattern had me dwelling about prom, high school, dating, arguments with Mom and Dad, romantic summers and makeup for my granddaughter, girl problems for my grandson, career decisions, car purchases, iPhones, relationships, marriage, bullying,…well, I think you got all those pictures swarming in your heads.??
At least, I hope! lol
So, what did all this brainstorming about the (particular) contents above accomplish? What about that (wish list)? And furthermore, those tips??
BOTH my grandkids are as smart as tacks beyond their years!
Well, let’s back up just a bit… Let me tell you something! =)
I strongly believe that (they) are quite secured with powerful wills and fearless spirits.
I also believe that they have spent their share of time thinking about their future and what they will be doing as adults; especially my sweet grandson. My grands are 8 and 5, and growing way too FAST!!! 🙁
Considering (career decisions), I’ve heard my oldest grandchild say, “I want to be a (crop farmer)” and my youngest one say, “I want to be a (vet)”
Both of those choices have a colossal of possibilities, and even MORE aspiring choices in relation to those fields.
Grandma isn’t worried in the least, because she knows they will be good at anything they decide as careers.
However, their choices could change, and change again, and YET, again before they commit! My grandchildren could even spread their wings and explore multiple advancements. They are young and have quite a long time to consider the variables.Now, getting back to that “wish list” before I lose my train of thought here…
Well, my thoughts are all over the place!! Having said that; it is NOT my intention to make this post essentially on (career picks). 😉
This leads me to consider my health more and more. Yes, Grandma certainly needs to be, and stay healthy in order to be around when all these things take place for sure!!!
So, what’s a wish list have to do with all this?
My wish list is the assorted things that I want to be able to talk about with my grandchildren.
More to the point; I want (them) to WANT to talk about those things (with me). To share tips with them, my thoughts, and my advice.
Important Note: I do realize that I’m not an expert when it comes to grandparent issues and tips. 😉
*** ~~ While this is ultra important to me; I also realize it may be too tall of an order to become a reality.
In addition, Their parents NEED to be present and have their opinions, their thoughts, their own tips and advice known when discussing those important topics.
All these elements will mold these (2) little people into responsible adults in tomorrow’s society…(whatever that may be). LOL ~~ With how things are going in this world today; it’s hard telling what our society will be like. 😉
Personally, I hope Jesus comes back by then…seriously.
I still have a wish list regardless. My grandkids could talk with me, AND Mom and Dad also!
The Updated List Consists Of: (I want my grands to seek advice, and tips about the following subjects from me).
1) Makeup and skin care advice: My Granddaughter
Well…of course, this would be on top of the list! LOL <3 While, I sure hope she goes to her mom for beauty advice as well. Her Momma is beautiful BTW! <3
2) Girl problems: My Grandson
Now, I can already see him going to his dad for advice about this; that’s for sure! However, I do hope that he will come to me for a tip or two. 🙂
3) Prom: My Granddaughter
I would LOVE to get the chance to make her dress. I used to sew A LOT!! I even made my dress for my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary party. I still don’t know what happened to that dress! 🙁
4) Bullying: Both My Grandson and Granddaughter
I’m not the bullying expert at all!! However, since I’ve been through it myself, I do hope I get the chance to give some advice…(if the need arises). I certainly hope it doesnt! <3<3
5) Career advice: Both My Grandson and Granddaughter
I do hope they both have their decisions made way ahead of time. With (most) kids, they end up changing their minds a dozen times; and that’s ok. That is the norm. With that being said; I would be ecstatic if they would pop their heads in the house and seek a little advice!
6) Grandchildren: Both My Grandson and Granddaughter
I certainly hope I get the chance to lend some tips and advice along the way. More IMPORTANTLY; <3 I hope I’m still living when my great grandchildren are born. <3
A Grandmother Can Dream Can’t She?!
