I'm going from no grandchildren to lots of grandchildren. The first grandbaby was born in May 2010. The second grandbaby arrived in the spring of 2011. The third grandbaby is coming in the summer of 2011. The first 3 are all girls which thrills me as I had mainly boys. The 4th grandbaby is due at the end of 2011. We have to wait until that baby arrives to discover the sex. Grandparenting still feels very new to us. Haven't figured out what we consider the role of grandparents. I'm thinking along the terms of "My Grandfather's Blessings: Stories of Strength, Refuge, and Blessings" by Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D.
