Being a grandparent is one of the most exciting and important things that can happen to a person.
After spending years lovingly raising your own children, it’s wonderful to be able to see them take the same journey and to watch it from a whole new perspective.
Many people remember the exact day and time they found out they were going to become a grandparent and the reactions are always different.
Some people recall bursting into tears when they were told the happy news by their children, unable to control their emotions in the moment.
Others say they literally jumped for joy and couldn’t wipe the smile off their face for days.
There are those who are surprised, those who are shocked, and those who are relieved after years of watching their children try to start a family of their own.
Some children choose to surprise their parents with a quirky announcement by writing it in a poem or springing an ultrasound on them and capturing it on video.
Whatever the case it’s always a memorable moment and one to treasure for a lifetime.
