Grand Thoughts: Seriously exhausted but seriously happy

There is not a role I take more seriously than being a grandmother. I want my three little people to know how much I love them and that I will do everything within my power to help provide them with a loving, safe and happy family life.

But man, oh man, these three little monkeys can wear me the heck out.

Granted, I'm not the vivacious, energetic woman at 61 that I was a few decades ago when I was raising my four children, but I'm nowhere near being put out to pasture. I still have a good amount of energy, so why do I sometimes find myself completely physically and mentally exhausted when they're in my care?

Why am I constantly questioning how I could have possibly raised four children? I must have been a martyr.
