Today’s typical grandparents are defying the stereotypes of what we may remember our grandparents to be because they are younger than ever before.About 43 percent became grandparents in their fifties, and about 37 percent became grandparents in their forties. Grandparents because they are younger are more in touch and more relatable to the grandchildren which is an extra added bonus to the hugs, kisses,and secret stash of treats that are reserved just for the kiddies. Grandpops,and Mimis,Pop-pops, and Gigis are still working, playing sports,shopping and paying bill online(no check writing),and a part of social networks as well. One thing remains the same , grandparents no matter what the age , will always provide a certain love and enrichment in the grandchildren’s lives that can not be replaced.There just has to be a healthy balance between letting grandparents still live their own independent and vibrant lives and helping out with the grandchildren.

Trying New Things
When i first wake up in the morning i have my “one on one”with the man upstairs to give thanks for having yet another day to get things right.Second i have my cup of tea,when i do my thinking,create my to do list for the day,goals perhaps for the week.One day over my piping hot cup,i brewed up an idea as well.An idea that would have me move out on faith and walk out on courage.I decided i wanted a change of career,more fulfilling,and make money while doing it.The hardest step in the process would just be to get started. We find many ways in life to impede our own progress by not TRYING to move forward, not being confident in our own choices.Failures in life are inevitable, but as long as you survive your mistake,you go forth with a different approach to achieve your desired goal.I would like to introduce you to myself , Mrs Dee….an up and coming freelance blogger.
