When your grandkids see other grandparents, they may think they are dull, boring old people, because their own grandparents are so cool! Your grandkids will see you as cooler than their parents. You're the kind of grandparents who will keep up with trends that your grandkids love, and each gift will be exactly what they wanted (even if the parents may object). You'll have lots of great conversations with your grandkids because they'll trust you to be cool about what they have to say.
You will probably be (or are) the kind of grandparent who calls their kids every day to get updated on the grandchildren. The moment you feel something is wrong, you'll immediately be on the way with help and probably large amounts of food. Your grandkids will never lack for good food and clothes you bought them. With you as a grandparent - the grandkids will always feel loved and taken care of.
The kid fell from the swing? It happens. The most important thing in your eyes is to remain calm and make sure the parent stays calm as well. You will look to calm them both down. You will be grandparents who are aware your kids are working hard to be parents, and so you'll do everything you can to make them feel more relaxed. You know that in the end of the day parenting is a natural affair and one shouldn't get too anxious about it. You will be the anchor in the storm for your worried children.
Every time your grandkids see you, they will wonder what they are to learn today. Whether it's how to carefully open an electrical gadget and see how it works or a tip for life they can't get anywhere else. You will be an endless source of knowledge for your grandchildren. You may even start projects with them so you can work on them together, which creates a special bond between you.
You know how to hold a baby so it stops crying, the best way to put the kids to sleep in their beds and how to enforce discipline - and you're not afraid of voicing your opinion about it. When the grandkids are over at your place they will be on their bet behavior, because they know what is expected of them. The parents are not as adamant but you'll always have tips for them so they learn from the experience you earned raising them.
