Who Care? That is what every child that has to go through certain events in their homelife that are not very nice.. Who Care? is what each and everyone of them are wondering. Am I worth caring for and I worth being loved? Not every situation is the same and some not as bad as others, but each is devistating to these children that get their worlds turned up side down. Who Care? Well as I look around at daycares and schools, Grocery stores and Wal-mart I see Who Care? it is us! I am a Grandparent which am called Nana by my Grandchildren. I have a 9 year old girl and Twin 4 year old Girls. I have had them for 3 years now. My children are all over the age of 20 so I had lived my life raising my kids and was ready for ME time. Certain things happened in my Daughters life that led me to become the Legal guardian of my three beautiful Grand-daughters. I had to learn how to be a parent all over again. I had to learn patience and doing hair and getting ready for school, doctors appointments, Girl scouts, going to the park, reading books, buying kids cereal and toddler clothes. I had to change diapers and give baths and have them in bed by 9. Then came the homework and library and daycare, shots and sick nights and Nana can I sleep with you. You see these are all normal things as a mother and a father, but as a grandparent, we are suppose to just make cookies when they come to visit and maybe have a sleep over once in awhile, but when it becomes a permanent thing.... Well Grandma or Grandpa it is no more. Now between our work schedules or if we are retired it becomes alot of work. We are not spring chickens anymore. So to be able to run and play and jump rope and all that, well I don't know about you, but it gets tough. But I do know this for sure it is something I would not change for nothing!! I love my Grand-daughters and they love me. When I am ill, I am not alone no more. I have one twin perched up on one arm of the chair and the other one on the other arm and my 9 year old asking do you need a blanket or something to drink, well that is when I can answer Who Care? I do!!! We may not have alot of money or fancy things, but I can tell you we all have more love then anything. I cared and that is why I took on the responsibility.. I cared because If I didn't who would? Because of all I learned on how to manage this and cope with this and not make them feel like they were a burden on my life I want to help those who feel overwhelmed with their new found responsibility and show them that the best thing you will get out of this is LOVE! an uncondiotional love you just can't get from being just a grandparent. I want to be there to help those who have questions on what they need to do, or help with homework etc. If you take this on for whatever reason take it on because you love them and want to be there for them. What ever you do, Never let them know they are in your way! Show them You Care if no one else does! You will get the biggest reward out of anyone if you do! Until next time... Kiss those babies goodnight, tell them you love them and tell them you are so happy that they are there for you!
