Congratulations for becoming grandparents: Messages for new grandpas and grandmas
Congratulations for becoming grandparents: The birth of a child is a celebration not only for the mother and father, but for grandma and grandpa too. For the first time in their lives they will get to shower true love on a baby boy or a baby girl without being responsible for the tantrums of a spoilt toddler. If you know someone in your family or friend circle who has just experienced the joy of becoming a grandparent, write sweet quotes on a greeting card to send your best wishes. And in the day and age where even granddad and granny are on Facebook and Pinterest, you can also wish them with cute messages and funny pins.

2) You own children were your investments and your grandchildren are the sweet bundles of interest you have received upon maturity. Congratulations.
