    This was such a similar way of how I look at parenting. Trying to share or even erase.the pains. xo

    • Right? If the kids knew….would we give them our joys and take their pains? Absolutely! I know we shouldn’t take all of their pains. But there is a large part of us that wants to.

  3. They say parenting is grandma’s revenge!

    There is indeed. My favorite job of all!

  5. I am much more relaxed as a grandparent than I was as a parent. ❤ ❤ ❤ I do spoil my granddaughters, but not with 'things'.

  6. Ahhh, that is so sweet! Trading two joys for one heartache, if only it could be that easy! Love this Colleen.

  7. If only someone would make that trade!

    • 🙂 We would probably lose our parenting membership cards if we kept taking all of our kids suffering away. I suppose we have to let them go through ‘some’ stuff. But man oh man, sometimes I would gladly trade my joys for their pains. Gladly.

    Great trades, MBC. You know that’s the way it works in the big world of bringing up our kids. 🙂
