Grilled Grandma: Sherry

What is a Grilled Grandma? A Grilled Grandma is a grandma whom I've grilled with some grandma-related questions, and she's graciously responded with answers and photos. Here is brand-new grandma Grilled Grandma Sherry:

How many children do you have? 2

How many grandchildren? What are their ages? One. Aiden is one week old. (Editor’s note: Aiden is now over a month old as these responses are from mid October.)

Any great grandchildren? No

What do your grandchildren call you? Nothing yet...I like Grammy!

After the initial elation, what was your first concern upon hearing you would soon be a grandmother? The ages of mom and dad. My son is 22 and Brandi 21. They are surprising me with how responsible they have turned out to be. No more concerns now!

How often do you get to see your grandchildren? Every day. They live only blocks from me!

With Dad

What is the best thing about being a grandma? Oh, I'm new at this...holding this little guy in my arms while he sleeps. Just looking at him!

What is the most challenging part of being a grandma? Trying to help out the new mom and dad without being overbearing!

What do you most want to pass along to your grandchildren? Love, traditions

What is one word you hope your grandkids think of when they think of you? Love
