Welcome Dears,

 All my experience, ideas and learnings since becoming a Nan. Its like childhood all over again!

I’m sharing what I am learning about being a grandparent of boys. No intention to reinforce gender stereotypes but there are some irrefutable differences. I want to do a bit of myth busting and entertaining too. I write from my experiences, struggles, battles, laughter and love.

I worked hard for over 40 years and now I am dancing through life using knowledge and expertise when I can. I don’t ‘know it all’ but I can share the challenges of my new and favourite role, one given to me by my (much smarter and more creative) daughter.  These are either my views or ones i have highjacked from others who I have met and admired on the way…
