A grandchild can hold your heart in their little hands like no other. When I was raising my son I didn’t have any trouble saying no and explaining how money didn’t grow on trees, but with my granddaughter my purse strings are very loose! She can talk me into just about anything.

She also loves me unconditionally. I know that when she tells me that I look beautiful even at my worst and when I sing with the car radio she tells me I sing pretty when no one else would. They also can be very honest when speaking their little minds, like the time I was struggling trying to get into some jeans that were getting too tight, with a little smile on her face she quickly said, “Meme, you’re going to have to do a little exercise!”
