    1 thought on “The Granny Diaries: An Insider's Guide for New Grandmothers

    1. An enjoyable read for a new grandma or even if you've been a grandma for a while. The rules of what to say, not say, how to say it, and those incredible feelings you have for you grandchildren are so true. It's nice to know other grandparents have the same experiences and feelings - I'm not crazy! The every end of the book, the difference between being the paternal or maternal grandma is also so true - I am both and it is different. So, all women who are mothers of sons, remember one day you too [...]

    2. Camouflaged with great humor, the author gives practical advice on becoming a grandmother--how to interact with your own child while becoming the greatest granny out there!

    3. I heard about this book somewhere & thought it would be a fun read. I'm having a baby in a few months & am thinking a lot about how my family & my husband's family situations yielded very different grandparent experiences for the 2 of us, and about how each of our immediate families will be part of this child's life in such different ways from each other.The Granny Diaries is a hilariously written little book from a baby boomer who became a grandmother in her early 50s while fully en [...]

    4. Very enjoyable quick read for first-time grandmothers (like me!). I'm finding the advice very helpful and the good humor with which it is delivered makes me laugh frequently. I especially like it's brevity - it is very to-the-point and doesn't go on endlessly and repetitively like some such books. Although my brand new granddaughter is only 1 1/2 months old, Im going to keep this book to re-read at various stages because I expect it to be extremely useful.

    5. For those of us that will be coming "grandparents" for the first time--this is a great book. You'll laugh, you remember "those days", you'll learn what to say and "not" say, (if you can remember it all), and you'll realize you both are new at these new roles you are taking on--so be patient--. It was a fun read.

    6. I adore Adair Lara's writing when I find it in one of our newspapers. I was eager to read her book, which is a 119 page book basically about how best to deal with things when your daughter has a baby. She devotes 2-1/2 pages to the possibility that it might be your SON who is the parent (rules considerably different for when it is your daughter who is the parent). Enuf said.

    7. Nice little humorous stocking stuffer with some clues on how not to annoy your children who have children of their own. It is quite brief and a good fast read and the funniest chapter was on that really difficult problem of what you want your grandchild to call you. There are some weird solutions to this.

    8. As a new grandmother, I am really enjoying this book! I am relieved to know that I am not the only grandmother out there experiencing these feelings ("You will love the name they choose for your grandchild. You will accept that way they are raising your grandchild!" I'm still working my way through this humorous yet down-to-earth, and true-to-life read!

    9. Both funny and some really great advice. How to be involved but not be interfering. Never ever criticize how she parents - just build her up. Of course, this is how I parented her so I hope I can continue that. Bring on grand-motherhood!!

    10. Hahaha! A good laugh plus some genuinely good pointers, the most important of which add up to: If you feel the need to say something to your child about their parenting, don't. Cynical yet sweet and a quick, fun read.

    11. This is that hysterical book that I read while at Cath's. I can't recall the last time I laughed so hard while reading a book. It would make a fabulous gift for any new grandmother. I definitely want to read more by this author.

    12. Adair Lara writes with wit and humor as she explores the relationship of grandparenting, especially how it relates to your daughter. Informative, fast read.

    13. This would probably have been better if I ever had any hope of becoming a grandparent.But there really needs to be a funny book about grandparenting.

    14. A must read for the baby boomer generation of soon to be grandmas and grandpas. Things aren't what they were when we had kids - not even close!

    15. This book was definitely fun to read. There a lot of good advice in here in how to handle certain situations between the "parent" and the "grandma" (not that I need any of that!).

    16. A humorous look at being a first-time grandmother. The advice is, for the most part, solid, but not all that insightful for anyone with common sense. The author is obviously well-off and writes from that point of view, with just a passing mention of grandparents who may not be able to afford to pay for ballet lessons, private school tuition, frequent flights across the country, etc. (The advice? Bring your grandkids a magnifying glass or an old piece of costume jewelry. Gee, thanks.) The Granny [...]
