The Joys of a Proud Grandma

Updated on September 10, 2014

First there was the joy of being a mother for the first time;

All pains of labor and the ordeals of pregnancy suddenly banished at the sound of the baby’s first cry;

Followed by long years of a new life full of combinations of love, fun, dreams, pride, duties, responsibilities, worries, to name a few, as the child goes through every stage of development;

Then the grandchildren;

Sweet grandchildren! Babies of your own baby;

It’s beyond words to watch the grandchildren grow as your own child handles them through the years;

I have five beautiful grandchildren who are the extension of my own person;

I see myself in each of them;

My sweet and wonderful first granddaughter is now on her fourth year in the university taking up Architecture;

She is so pretty and smart, the joy and pride of her father and mother;

She is the epitome of love, sweetness, virtues and intelligence;

My first love and pride as a grandma;

My sweet grandtwinsm both taller than me, they're just 14, I am 5'4

Followed by the miraculous boy-girl twins;

The boy carries a lot of my look and total personality;

He is full of energy;

He is ambitious and he dreams of greatness;

He is 14 and he often shares with me his plans for the future;

We chat very often and he loves me as much as I love him;

Sweet to my heart grandson...I call him Pokoy which means my sweet grandson...
Sweet to my heart grandson...I call him Pokoy which means my sweet grandson...

He wants me to be proud of him for he is also proud of me;

He often brags to his classmates that his grandma has got magic and he believes in me;

God! What else can a grandma ask!

Oh joy of “grandmahood”!

Pretty Moj...that's how I call my second granddaughter...isn't she pretty?

My two beauteous sister granddaughters...how can a grandma like me not be proud of these sweet babies?

The girl in the twins is probably the smartest of them three;

She always gathers academic honors every end of the school term;

She is a beauty and brain combined;

Her legs are those of a model;

Her physical features are flawless;

A beauty that I can only dream in my youth;

She is the manifestation of my fantasy of beauty;

And the five year old granddaughter, daughter of my own daughter is me personified;

In just one look at her, people would say that she is my own daughter;

She is the closest replica to my looks and energy;

The skin tone, the hair, the way she speaks, her excessive energy;

They are all me, a child again;

I am Jenny, and people call this granddaughter, “Jenny the small”;

Her name is CyeCye and people call me “CyeCye the big”

When I am gone from this life, my blood and my person will still live on through CyeCye;

And last but not least is the youngest and most handsome of them all, Claude;

He is 3 years old and already aware and conceited about his handsome face;

Oh! Joy of “grandmotherhood”!

I really feel like I am one of the luckiest creatures

I really feel like I am one of the luckiest creatures in this vast universe;

My life is complete with love and blessings direct from God and the Universe;

I feel like I own all the riches this Universe can provide;

“I am rich in love, a millionaire”

Was it Tom Jones’ lyrics in one of his songs?

It just echoes through my head as I think and count all my blessings.
