Technology can be a challenge for the Baby Boomers, but this former teacher and now grandma has found a way to stay connected to children by YouTube. Fun stories and even devotions are part of this adventure into the world of YouTube.
Today's grandmas are different and contribute actively to a family's lifestyle. Share this delightful story of how this grandma demonstrates that she can do more than bake cookies. Adventures abound as she dances, played video games with the kids, and going to zumba classes.
My grandma Ivy Trigg (nee Garnham) grew up in Yorkshire, in the UK, in the early 1900s, in a district where families were so poor that children were often barefoot in the street.
Born in 1906, my grandad, Frank Trigg, was an enterprising young man who ran his own upholstery business from his early 20s until he retired in his 70s, surviving childhood illness and two world wars.
It isn't always easy preparing to be Grandparents but there are things that you can do, even if your relationship with new Mummy and Daddy isn't easy. To connect with your grandchild you can: write a personal letter to them about your life's history, make a Family Tree, make a cross stitch sampler or a patchwork quilt for them - even if you have never done anything like that before.
