My older sister is an old pro at being a grandmother. She has four grandsons. So when I became a first time grandmother this month she welcomed me into grand-parenthood with a box filled with goodies to help the adjustment into this very important life role. My sister told me she got the idea from the net somewhere but couldn't remember where. I did a quick Google search myself and nothing popped up. I'd love to give credit where it is due, but until then I want to share this delightful gift idea for a new grandma.
Necessities for the new grandmother include:
Hand lotion to remind you that babies need lots of soft touches
Safety pin to help remind you to be safe
Brag book to keep photos of your grandchild near you
Lifesavers to remind you that grandmothers can be lifesavers
Pen and paper to write down your thoughts and memories to share with baby when older
Wet wipes for cleaning up those little messes
Sweet and sour candy to remind you that every child can be both
Puzzle piece symbolizing the new important piece of your life - your special grandchild
Marbles to replace the ones you are sure to lose
Candle to remind you that you'll be the light of your grandchild's eye
Confetti to remind you to have fun
Candy kisses to remind you that you are loved
How cute is this???
