How Nanas Start The New Year Right
What do Nanas do on New Year’s Eve? If they are very lucky they get to spend it with family and grandkids!
If you haven’t visited NanaHood’s Facebook Page and joined in the fun there, I hope you will. We have over 26,000 grandparents and parents who visit and engage in conversations, games and of course, bragging on our grands!
I asked them how many of them were lucky enough to spend some time with their grandchildren on New Year’s Eve and I learned that lots of grandmothers are more than happy to keep the kids while the parents go out, or whole families get together.
Grandparents Love Spending Time With Their Grandchildren
Here are just a few of the sweet pictures and comments I received from grandparents all over the world!
Arvada from Missouri says, “Our Lil Love… Sawyer ..aka( Spider-Man), snacks to celebrate.. he made it till 8:30 pm...??”
That’s just about what time I started getting sleepy but I made it until the ball dropped. Sad to say, I did witness Mariah Carey’s sad performance, but that’s for another post. Back to the cute grandkids…..
This is Nana Judi from Pennsylvania with 3 great grands, “Willie, Ana and Naysa. Happy New Year Nanas. This Nana is tired!”
I feel your pain Judi. I was tired last night and more tired today!
It must have been supper time for this little cutie, or maybe she’s sticking her tongue out at 2016? This is Ellie Lynn. 6 months old from Indiana and she was with her Nana Michelle.
This is Nana Brandi from Illinois and the sweet boy with super bear pajamas beside her is her grandson, Kylan.
I love hearing from Nanas from other countries as well. Here are a few comments I received from them.
Una says, “I will be spending New Years Eve with my gorgeous grandsons Michael and Reid in Co. WICKLOW IRELAND. Happy New Year to all the Nanna’s out there ??”
Diane says, “Yes, I babysat all 4 of mine in Brisbane Australia…Jayla 8….Marlee 6….Koby 2….Dion 1.”
I bet she had her hands full, don’t you?
Deann, says, “With my granddaughter Ellie. Happy New Year from Edinburgh Scotland xx.”
Linda says she spent the New Year, ” With my granddaughter Peyton (Ms Tinks) Happy new year from Waiuku New Zealand.
Regina said, “Spending tonight with three out of four in Dublin, Ireland.?
Martha said, ” Fiachra. ..my six week old grandson…..Birr …Co.Offaly. ..Ireland.
In a world that often seems cold and crazy, it’s comforting to me to think about these sweet grandparents and grandchildren being snuggled in their homes and enjoying each other’s company. I can’t think of a better way to start the New Year than by spending it with those we love and connecting the generations.
