Meet a MetroKids Grandmom
Delaware County, PA
Life at a glance:
Mom of two adults, Grandmom to Hannah, age 2; married to PopPop; reserve crossing guard for her township and a senior companion.
What are your favorite things to do with your granddaughter?
We go to playtime at the library, listen to her Uncle John (my son) play bagpipes, go to the playground and frequently attend plays at Hedgerow Theatre.
Are you ever guilty of spoiling your granddaughter?
I do so many things for her that I never thought my body would permit: pony rides, hide-and-seek in the smallest places, wearing the crazy hair bows and six ponytails she puts in...
Share a memory that you hope your granddaughter can experience.
I’ve had a very best friend, Dottie, since age 5. I hope Hannah has a best friend for life.
What’s the best thing about being a grandmother?
My granddaughter says she is my “lovey dovey.” When she hugs me so tight, I feel like I am wearing the most precious necklace in the world!
Do you have any special family Thanksgiving traditions?
Always stating something that we are very thankful for. Can you guess mine?
