I’ve always wanted to be a grandma! You see, I had a wonderful grandma that lived with us until I was 12 years old. There were 5 kids in my family, but with a stay-at-home mom, a dad with a flexible schedule, and a grandma, there was always plenty of love, attention, amusement, and learning activities for all of us.
I really enjoyed being a mom. My husband and I raised 2 children and loved (almost!) every minute of it. All the time they were growing I was thinking of the things that I was getting to do with our children that I also wanted to do with our grandchildren.
We now have 4 grown children – two of those being the ones our kids married! Our first grandchildren came quickly – 3 of them in 2 years. They were a very joyous but hectic 2 years!
It was late December of 2008 when I realized that I hadn’t been able to put together a “grandma-ish” Christmas present for our grandchildren. One Sunday afternoon, between meetings and dinners and while Grandpa was taking a nap, I set up our video camera and recorded a “lion hunt” activity that I hadn’t ever done with our own grandchildren. It was very quickly edited and sent out in the mail the next day so it could arrive for Christmas.
Although our children told us how much they and our grandchildren enjoyed the video, we were unprepared for their enthusiasm for sharing it with others outside our family. They strongly encouraged us to share and model the interaction we had with them while they were growing up and that we now have with our grandchildren. They thought that Grandma’s home video approach would do just that. After all, if this grandma can do it, so can you!
So “My Grandma Time” was born. We anticipate that over the years we will be able to add many things to share with you as our grandchildren grow. Our hope is that our efforts will encourage you to do simple things with those around you.

P.S.S. In 2010 our 4th grandchild was born and our 5th was born in 2012. YES!
