I am new to this site and thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Jeanine and the Grandma or NeeNee as they call of three precious little ones. My third grandbaby is just two weeks old today. I live in South Carolina, two of them live in Virginia and my newest granddaughter is in NY State.
I was able to get to NY just on time for her birth and It crushed me when I had to leave. My older two and I were never apart until June of this year and they are soon to be 4 7 5 yrs old. I absolutely miss them like crazy, it's a very hard thing to get used to considering we are such a close knit family.
Does anyone have any hints on feeling a little better when missing them? Sorry I know I kind of rambled on.

Hi Jeanine! My name is Toni and I live in Pennsylvania and my daughter who has my only grandson, who is now 8, live in North Carolina! My son in law is a USMarine and is all over the world taking my daughter and grandson with him. I adore all of them more than you can ever know. And when I find myself missing my grandson beyond anything you can imagine, I pick up the telephone and call him. And trust me, THAT IS QUITE OFTEN!! If I see something in the store that reminds me of him, I will pick it up and mail it to him. He knows I adore him and he feels the same way about his grandma. He calls me all the time to tell me he loves me, to tell me he's going out to play, to tell me what kind of day he had at school and so on and so forth. The phone is a wonderful invention...lol Just because they are miles away in distance, they can still be in your heart every second of every day. The phone lets them know you are only a second away in your heart. Cheer up! It's hard on all of us. We just need to keep in touch so they feel like they are right next to us. Simple solution...lol

Jan,
Thanks so much for the idea of the coloring. Those would be special things for all of us. I will be going to Va. in a couple weeks to get my to eldest grand children so, I will send them home with somethings that they can color for us.

Hi Jeanine, I too understand how you feel, my daughter moved away with her little princess about 4 months ago & although we go & see them as often as we can, its not easy cos my husband & I both work. I miss them both too. As Michele said send the children postcards, letters & pictures that they can colour in & send back to you. Good luck. x

Thank you so much for the comment. Our situations are alot alike. Thank goodness for this thing called a computer and modern technology, which gives us the opprotunities to do exactly what we are doing right now.
Where in NC did you live? We are just south of Charlotte in Sc and just love it. Coming from Upstate NY is quite a difference that's for sure. I don't miss the cold. I just spent two weeks there for the birth of my newest granddaughter, had the time of my life, then came home sick.
I guess going from 80 plus degrees to 50's and 60's can do that to a person. You take care and cherish every moment with your children and grand babies as I plan to. I hope to hear from you soon.

I can relate, I have 4 grans an they just moved out two months ago living with me over a year an we grew like a huge family. i was bathing, story time, Sunday services an now my large house is empty. I am a young grandma at 40 an I dont work family chose but now the walls are caving. So we are planning a move back south all together because we hate it here in WV, sorry to anyone that loves it here. We were born in RI so we want the warm weather back since we lefted NC a year ago an half ago, living there for 7yrs makes a difference. But all I can say is find time to send cards, little notes an even pictures to them all. Kids love mail it is important because they know mom\dad get stuff on-line but young ones love stuff they can have for them. Good luck.
