Tuesday Topics–Lifelong Dream

Life. Love.Lauren

This may sound funny, but it is a lifelong dream of mine to one day become a great-grandmother. This will require a few things to happen – first and foremost for me to live long enough for this to happen! I will need my children to one day marry and have children, and then I’ll need those children to marry and have children!

I personally have one grandmother, who has three great-grandchildren, and I had another grandmother who lived to see two great-grandchildren. I was born after all my great-grandparents had passed away and the fact that my kids met their great-grandmothers is very cool. Imagine if Gabbie one day has great-grandchildren! She’ll have personally met 6 generations of her family – wow!


I’m definitely curious to hear about other people’s lifelong dreams!

Speaking of curiosity, I wondered if you might indulge me in a brief poll regarding my blog. It’s quick and anonymous! Thanks!

What a wonderful dream to have and I truly hope it come true for you. I got to know my great-grandfather as he lived to be 103 years old and it was truly amazing to have that experience and hope that some day your great-grandkids can say the same :)

My great grandparents passed away long before I was born, but I love seeing photos. My children have met their great grandmother on my side and their great grandparents and great great grandmother on my husband's side. As someone really into genealogy, I think that is so awesome!

This is such a cool dream. Collin and Luke visit my grandmother at least twice a month and I love watching them interact with her. I never thought about how cool it is that my boys could potentially know 6 generations of their family.

That is super cool! I never knew any of my great grandparents. I had two that died when I was one (but had dementia) and another when I was two.

That's awesome! Elliott has great grandparents on both my side and my hubs. I never really thought about meeting his grandkids, but now I think it'd be awesome!

Such a cool dream! I have this dream for my parents. They would love it. I only had one great-grandma growing up and I don't really remember her. But my husband had a few and now so does Sofia and it's nice.

I also love how you did a blog poll! Great idea!

I love this dream! I have a great grandmother who is still living and I love that Violet has met her. I love the generation picture you have, :)
