Most people know that my grandchildren were the inspiration for Granny’s Garden School. Until three years ago, all five of my grandchildren lived nearby. The two older ones are now grown and married and the younger ones’ family moved to Washington state. Though we see each other whenever we can, there was a hole in my life.
I decided I was going to adopt a grandbaby. I was looking for a situation where mom and dad did not have family in town and would welcome a grandmother figure in their baby’s life. Then I met and fell in love with baby Charlotte. It turned out I was already acquainted with her mother but did not know she had married and had a baby. I now have Charlotte 3-4 days a week. She is a year old and in the last few weeks has gone from a baby to a toddler. She is with me in the gardens most days.
