When I was a kid, I envied other kids who had grandmas. As a young child, I only had one grandparent and she lived in Harlem. While we made the trip to NYC often to see her, she spoke little English and I never really connected with her. She died when I was 10.
My mom, on the other hand, was a fantastic grandma. She adored her four grandchildren and, if it's possible, adored her great-grandchildren even more . . . even when they didn't want a group picture!

Then there's me. I wasn't too sure about this whole grandma thing when it first began. I wasn't like other women I know who looked forward to having grandchildren the way children look forward to Christmas. Nope. I could wait.
But then it happened. I'd like to say I magically transformed into a doting mess, slobbering all over my first granddaughter and showing pictures of her to strangers at the grocery store. But that wouldn't be the truth. Even though I was there in the room as she was born, there was a missing connection somehow. Truthfully, it took a few months for the "grandma mode" to set in.
Now that it has, however, I must admit, I'm loving it. I absolutely adore my grandbabies. And, of course, I want only what's best for them. That's why I introduced my daughters to Earth Mama Angel Baby products right from the start. And they love them, too.
Yesterday, as they were getting ready for church, four-and-a-half year old, Laura, asked her mommy to spray some Happy Baby Spray on her. Even she knows a good thing when she's got it!
So, since EMAB and GG are collaborating to bring you this fun contest, I thought it would be appropriate for me to share some pics of me with my grandchildren. After all, it is a Gorgeous Grandma contest and let's face it -- the most gorgeous grandmas are those whose faces light up whenever their grandbabies are around! I know mine does.
