I'm "Grammy" Rose to my granddaughters, Sophia and Karah.
After having three adult children, I was place back into the role of "mommy", when I began to raise Sophia. You learn a new language while parenting: diapers, formula, child safety, teething and potty training. You ask questions like "Should I use cloth or disposable diapers?", "Where can I find the best child care?", or "Should I puree her food, or just buy jars?". I've embraced this season in my life and discovered that raising a child in today's world is quite different from 25 years ago.
I am not the traditional grandmother, with cooking and canning skills. My children will tell you they were raised on Manwich and Hamburger Helper. I was a single, working parent. Those meals were fast and affordable. But I've learned that convenience isn't always worth it. I've taken the foray into organic foods, gardening, and being a natural Grammy! I'm learning to make homemade soap, create natural remedies and yes, even cooking and canning!
This blog will chronicle my journey. I hope we'll laugh, I know we'll cry (I feel things deeply) and I hope you, my reader, will learn something as well, as we take this journey together.
So welcome! Join me! It won't be boring...
