Ode to Grandma
Hopefully like me you had the opportunity to spend some quality time with your Grandmothers growing up. My Mom's Mom, Grandma Rea was a great Irish lady who worked at Lord & Taylor and took me to New York City as often as possible. My Dad's Mom, Grandma Marjorie was a sturdy Indiana woman who wrangled an extended family and always made sure there was plenty of food in the soup pot for the entire neighborhood.
Knowing both of these women growing up created a great balance for me when it came to understanding being a grown up. They were both hard working people but they also both enjoy their down time with family. If they were around today I am sure we would have some good times. I think they would both love social media and girls night out.
I never had kids but a lot of my girlfriends did and they are all fast becoming Grandmas. I can't believe how many cool Grandmas I know. And yes I am fast becoming Grandmas crazy friend. My Grandmas both had a crazy friend or two. I am so glad I can carry on that tradition at least.
