One of the perks about being a grandma, is having a front row seat to observe a human grow, change, and unfold. For example, my 3 year old grandson is standing INSIDE one of the underground tunnels at the park. But last year, he was afraid of these tunnels. Now he is playing in the sand, standing in one of the holes, and has no fear. This change, to me, is rather remarkable. There is a new confidence in his countenance.
