Item description for Bein' a Grandparent Ain't for Wimps: Loving, Spoiling, and Sending Your Grandkids Home by Karen O'Connor...
Overview From the bestselling author of Gettin' Old Ain't for Wimps (more than 225,000 copies sold) comes this heartwarming look at grandparenting. More than 80 delightful stories based on real-life experiences express the joys of interacting with grandchildren and the funny misunderstandings that occur between generations. As Karen, a grandmother to 14, says, Grandkids keep us youthful, humble, and wide-awake! They also keep us praying. We read books and ride bikes together, play Ring Around the Rosy, cheer from the bleachers at their sporting events, and tear-up at the sight of them in their first prom dress or tux. What would our lives be like without sticky kisses, heavenly hugs, and hand-printed birthday notes? Each story ends with an encouraging Scripture verse and a brief prayer, thanking God for the gift of these young people who help us live, love, and laugh in ways we never imagined.

funny and touching Apr 17, 2009
This collection of stories about grandparent's and children will make you laugh and sometime wipe away a tear. Although the stories are based on real families, names and circumstances have been changed and the telling has been fictionalized. Their brevity makes perfect bathroom reading, and a Scripture and brief prayer give food for reflection.
