Quotes for becoming a grandparent.

Over the river and through the wood / To grandfather’s house we’ll go.

Babys i luv with all mi heart; they are mi sweetmeats, they warm up mi blood like a gin sling, they krawl into me and nestle by the side ov mi soul, like a kitten under a cook stove. . . . I have got grandchildren, and they are wuss than the first krop tew riot amung the feelings.
As grandparents, elders can contribute to the grandchildren's guidance and maintenance without being responsible for them. As grandparents, they can love, care for, and be helpful to the grandchildren--all without bearing the responsibility inherent in parental generativity. This freedom from middle age's responsibility for maintaining and perpetuating the world is central to the grand-generativity that characterizes old-age caring.
Because they are usually free to love and guide and befriend the young without having to take daily responsibility for them, they can often reach out past pride and fear of failure and close the space between generations.
