When I can help a fussy baby get to sleep or distract the kids while mom is cooking dinner my daughter calls it grandma magic. The first time she said it, it took me by surprise - what a lovely thing to say.
Being able to describe that special relationship between grandparents and grandchildren is not easy. Whenever I talk to other grandparents we all have the same thing in common, we had no idea how incredible this experience would be. Everyone tries to tell you when they know you are expecting your first grandchild but you cannot understand it until it happens.
One of the most beautiful things in the world is to see your daughter grow up and have children of her own because you know one day she will get to experience the magic of being grandma!
