In 2014, I wrote the following:
"In January, 2014, not only did I turn 60, but my daughter gave birth to a daughter of her own.
I thought becoming a grandmother would make me feel old. Instead it has made me feel YOUNG! As my granddaughter gets older, I feel younger...
You can be the parent you want to be for your child, the woman you want to be for your partner, and the grandparent you want to be for your precious grandchildren, the next in a series of life’s beautiful gifts…"
Wow! I was right and wrong.
First - start with the wrong - as my granddaughter got older, and I babysat, 2-3 days a week, I began to feel old. I did feel young at heart, but physically, I felt tired, and old.
