Hi, I am new at this. This is my first discussion so I am going to talk about famiy, which is very important to me. I have been a grandmother for 18 months now. I think everyone should be a grandparent it is so great. Well maybe some don't want to be grandparents. I love the newest of my grandson, my husband and I have made him our camping buddy, he just loves it. We have one son and daughter-in-law. They said when they got married they would never have kids, well one year later we had a grandson.Who new. My son is a great dad and I have the best daughter-in-law, we are close.

Hi there! Welcome to Mylot! I'm a fairly new user myself. It's lovely here, most people are so nice! I'm a mom to a beautiful eight-month-old girl and I know its early to be thinking of it, but I can't wait to have grandkids! Congratulations on becoming one! Sometimes I daydream of all the things she'll do and achieve but I just hope she does whatever she wants to! (Although I am really hoping she'll want kids! ;-D) I'm so happy for you that your family sound so close. Your very lucky. Welcome again! Lisa. Xxx.

Welcome to Mylot. Congratulations of becoming a grandmother. Though I have still more time to become a grandparent, becoming a grandparent is something great. I have seen my parents and my inlaws enjoying with their grandchildren. I too as a grandchild have enjoyed being with my grandparents. You are so lucky and so is your grandchild.

Congratulations! It's lots of fun being a grandparent. My grandson is 6 years old now and growing up fast. He will have a new baby brother sometime this June. My other son's wife is also expecting a baby in May - so I have 2 new grandbabies due within 3 months. It's going to be a very busy summer around here!

Well I don't have any children so not much hope of me being a grandparent, but I see people around me who are grandparents and i think it must be a wonderful time, a time when you can spoil and just enjoy the time you have with your Grandchildren. It is a good thing for you and your grandchildren...welcome to Mylot, I hope you have a great time here in our little family.

Hi rlc and welcome to mylot!I first want to say,thank you for your friendship:).What a cute lil boy(camping buddy) he is!I know you are proud:) I am a mother of 5,and grandmother of 14!I Love all my grandchildren.I just had a new grandaughter born sept 26,then a lil boy on jan 7.I am blessed.Altho,i do miss them terribly.I live in Mo.,they live in Ga.It is very hard for me.I plan to make changes real soon as we have always been a very close,tight family with a lot of love.I am missing out on a lot,seeing them grow up.They are only lil' for a lil while.While i loved when my children were little,it seems i really never had the time for them, as i do now with my grandchildren.I had to always work.If i had to do it all over again,believe me,there would be a lot of things that i'd done different. Grandchildren are so precious.It makes it even better when you are close to your kids,and have the best daughter,son-in-laws.I too am close with my 2 daughter-in-laws.I love them as if they were my own,and they feel the same about me.Good Luck and have Fun my friend,in all that you do.

Welcome to myLot! I won't be a grandparent for a few more years I think, but I'm looking forward to it. I miss having the little kids around and have none to borrow to babysit around here. You're lucky also to be close to your daughter-in-law. I hope to one day have that relationship as well.

first of all, welcome to mylot...i hope you enjoy your stay here! secondly, i agree with you...i have kids that are 11 and almost 15 and fortunately both sets of grandparents live quite close to us and they have been great over the years (not only for babysitting purposes either!)

Since my daughter is only I have a bit of time before grandparenthood. It is nice to have a good relationship with family. Makes life more special.
