Grandma to 11 including 5 grandsons and 6 granddaughters. Being a grandma is fantastic!

I am a new grandma, our little angel is 7 months old and has two little teeth and is currently taking swimming lessons with mom. She is the most precious thing in all our lives! I can't get over how quick she picks up on things!! Times have definitely changed since my kid were born...

I have 5 grandchildren. 2 live in SanAntonio, Tx, 1 lives in Houston, Tx and 2 live in Springdale, AR. I live in Springdale Ar. I rarely see the grandchildren in Houston and Springdale (their parents had an ugly divorce) but I do see the 2 in SanAntonio every 6-10 weeks which is a true blessing. I love all of them no matter how much I get to see them or how little I see them.

I am a very young grandmother, my first grandchild came when I was 36yrs old and now she is 13. I enjoy my grandchildren ages 13 girl, 10 girl, 8 boy, 6 boy, 6 girl, 2 girl. I do a lot with them because of my age, we go to Martha's Vineyard every year for a family get together. There I go bike riding with them and hang out on the beach and the arcades. I have a big yard with a pool so my husband and I could have many cookouts to have the kids over. It seems my life was so busy with my children that I didn't get to enjoy as much as I am with my grandchildren. Or maybe there is just more to offer them...don't know. I have a Halloween party for my grandchildren when it falls on a weekend, this year I dressed up as Michael Jackson, last year a Bumble Bee, before that a Pumpkin. My grandchildren tell me I am the coolest grandmother around, that makes me feel real good. I just want to leave everlasting memories with them just like my grandmother did.

Our one and only grandson will be 5 yrs. old in March. I love being a Mimi as he calls me. He is the joy and the love of my heart. There is nothing like it. They only live

2 1/2 hrs. away so it doesn't take too long to get there. Some days, though, I wish I could just walk to his house in 5 minutes. He cheers me up and I feel so happy when I spend time with him. Signed, A happy Mimi

Hi, I am the grandmother of two beautiful grandbabies, Tyler and Lily. I am also the step-grandma to 9 others! I only get to see my own two grand babies as we live close by, the others are more than 2000 miles away!

Does anyone else out their use web-cam to see their grandbabies inbetween visits? My son and daughter in law have a Skype account and so do I. This way I can watch little Jack grow and talk to him.

Hi Sharon. My perfect little granddaughter, Audrey Claire, was born on June 11 and lives so far from us! We were blessed to spend an entire month with her and our daughter Angela in December because her husband is currently deployed and due home in March. It was so wonderful to have them home and now the house is way too quiet once again. I never knew just how attached I would become or how much love I would feel for this precious little grandchild! :)

Hi. I became a first time grandma to little Jack on Nov. 4, 2009. He is the most precious little baby. My only regret is that my son, daughter-in-law and grandson live 400 miles away. I look forward to seeing them again on my next long weekend.

I have 12 Grandkids. The oldest is 14 and the twins (youngest) are 18 mos. From oldest to youngest they are Christian, Kaylea, Adella, Kyle, Alexandria, Kirsten, Daniel, Braison, Aaliyah, Dante, DeAndre and DeSean. They all call me MaMaw, Christian started that tradition. They all have their own personalities so as far as favoritism goes I don't think that is an issue at all, some of them warm up to you more than others but they are all loved the same.

I have 7 grandkids and 2 on the way. I am gramma to my kids too. My oldest grandchild named me that and it stuck. I recently got married to my loving guy and he has 3 children. I have three of my own. Add that up to a lot of grandkids!

Hi, my name is "Papoo" to my grandchildren. My oldest granddaughter who turned sixteen a couple of months ago, (hard to believe), could not say grandma and this is what came out of her mouth, so the other six grandchildren have called me this. I find it so endearing. I'm the one and only Papoo around. When they call me in a store or where ever, Yes, I'm the only one who answers. It's really nice.

I didn't become a grandmother until age 57. That was four years ago. My beautiful granddaughter Adalia was born in February of 2005, and she has filled our lives with a new kind of joy we never knew before.

Hello, My name is Terri I live in Utah and I am a Gramma to 3 adorable active boys 3, 2, and 8 months. They have my heart. They moved 4 hours away and I don't see them much but I love to hear about their antics when my daughter calls They are into "GUGS" (bugs). Thery lived with us off and on since the last move. I have alot of memories to think back on when missing them. And photos - Gramma is camera happy. It is great to talk on the phone with them - -it takes a half hour just to say goodbye - they tell us NO when we say goodbye. Hoping to get down there soon to see them. I have a Gramma scrapbook that I am working on too. Does anyone live in Utah? I loved Motherhood but just adore being a Gramma.
