Who knew that grand-parenting would be so much fun? Who knew I'd be a solo grandma? It was understood in my marriage that somewhere in the future we would be very proud grandparents together. However, like many baby boomers, our marriage didn't make it. I've been single for 20 years and since 2009 I have been a solo grandma.
You might think that with my husband and I being as close as we are to becoming empty-nesters, we would be done hanging out with little ones. Actually the opposite is true. As we get older, we crave our time with the youngest members of our family and the young families that are our friends.
