Welcome to Grammie Ramblings!

When there is no power, no computer, no T.V., telephone or distractions, it is clear to me, it is time to start my Grandparent Blog. This blog is for grandparents, and all the people who are in love with the little ones. I want this blog to be positive, funny, uplifting and a helpful account of the magic that is grandparenting.  There are new and exciting ideas, new terminology, in the field of child development. I would love to have company as we try to learn what is going on out there. I hope to have lots of guest contributors, my friends and family are great parents and I know they work hard to be even better grandparents. All our experiences are unique yet share the same goals. I hope all the different voices are valuable, and you find a few that speak to you.

This blog will not be critical, no insults, accusations, she said, he said...This is not the blog to air the family dirty laundry, lets be positive. But we are sympathetic, it is easy to be misunderstood, and not heard.  It is hard to be an observer after we all were in charge not so many years ago.

I hope you find the stories and ancedotals funny, and truthful. Please tell your friends, support the sight, and enjoy. Tell me what you think, Tell me about the topics you want to hear about. Talk to me!                                                                      

Love Grammy Judy

    2. Good luck! ...One important comment that you already know and accept with your dear grandchild is that most parents don't want their style to be contradicted and don't want advice, unless they ask for it, and even then, probably they only want validation that they are right....even when you KNOW they are muddled in their thinking or inconsistent with their style.

      You're the best!


    3. Thanks so much for being my first and most special comment. I suspect every generation has the same concerns!

    My disclaimer is I do not spell well. It's a problem. You will see errors. I apologize in advance. My typing .... fair. That is why I taught kindergarten and not High School English. Also if you would like to comment or post and I hope you do, mail it to me at I will add it to the blog.
    I want to welcome all new grandparents to the best club in the world, and your new job title "observer". I do not say this sarcastically or with a hint of regret. The new PARENTS ARE IN CHARGE> and if you are lucky like me, you will be relieved to see, everything is going to be fine.
    When are darling baby P arrived I was flooded with memories of my own children's births. We received calls, emails, cards and even grandparent gifts. Everybody wanted to hear every detail, and wish congratulations to the whole family. Most of my friends knew my son his entire life- multigenerations are beautiful. This birth was especially wonderful becuase it made my mother a G.G. a proud great grandmother.
    As soon as we looked at the precious baby I realized things have changed. The girls have new philosophies, different baby products, and techniques. I learned what swaddling was, and I learned about breast feeding. Welcome to your new role as observer. If in fact you would like to take charge, I suggest you buy a puppy. Mine is named Stormy.
    Being the observer is a good thing, just another new role in life. Believe that the new parents are knowledgable and wise. They love their children unconditionally, and children are very resilient. Voice all your concerns to me, and your friends. Everything is going to be great. Stormy is doing very well. Judy
