Between my husband and me we have fourteen grandchildren. Grandparenting is a wonderful thing. You get to do some of the things you did not do with your children. I imagine because we have more time when our grands come along. At some point they have all lived with us. I must say it is a handful, and as you mature it seems that your energy level is not as high as it used to be twenty years ago. It is wonderful watching the differences each one has. They are all gifted in their one right, some are great artists, writers, dancers, and some or busy trying to find themselves. We are enjoying what we are able to do at this time in our lives. Not only are we teaching them, we are learning from them. It keeps our minds active and current.
Maybe there is someone out there who has some pointers on the teenage years (especially fourteen year old males). This has been a joy just reminiscing about the GRANDS.
