My Top Five Ways to Show Love to Grandchildren!

Grandmas - or grandparents - and "love" go hand-in-hand and showing this love to our sweet grandchildren just comes naturally, but today I thought I'd take a minute or two and write about my Top Five Ways to Show Love to My Grandchildren!
  1. Hugs! Of course hugs are a great way to show love to grandchildren; as are kisses!
  2. Snuggling! My grandsons do enjoy snuggling in my lap . . . and I enjoy it to as I know how very fast they will grow, so being able to sit in my lap is something which will only happen for a few more years. This means for the next few short years, this grandma's lap is always available for snuggling sweet boys!
  3. Greeting with a smile, a twinkle in my eye and hug - I want my grandsons to know I'm always so happy to see them!
  4. Giving them my full attention. I put aside what I'm doing - unless I truly can not and then do as soon as possible - to listen to what my grandsons want to tell me. I want them to know I am interested in the things they are interested in and want to hear whatever it is they want to tell me. True, many of these things are not "earth-shattering", but if my grandsons want to tell me something, I want to listen.
  5. I say it. I tell them I love them. I say this freely and often. 
While I do not want my grandsons to grow up to be narcissistic, I absolutely want them to know their grandma absolutely, most certainly loves them. I say it and I show it! What do you do to show your love to your grandchildren?
