I am fortunate enough to have the best of both worlds. My grands live 350 miles away. My babysitting escapades are planned far in advance and it is an adventure for all involved! As I they have grown I have lamented not being there for each concert and event in my grandchildren’s day to day — but technology makes it seem like we are right down the street from each other. My oldest grand daughter learned to fetch an iPhone & Facetime about the same time she learned to walk. We are connected — but still not quite.
And I believe you ARE already setting a great Role Model for you grandchildren. By telling them — You are important as a human. You value yourself and Your Life. And that is always an important lesson to pass along to all the future generations. ❤
