To Grandma on her 100th Birthday

There’s no question, I’m pretty lucky to still have a grandma. This particular Grandma is pretty special for a few reasons. She was one of 21 children born in Ireland to her entrepreneurial parents.

Grandma went on to have many children herself – she had babies in the 1930s, 40s, 50s and 60s. She often laughs telling the story of getting the old age pension and baby bonus at the same time. She did not take her parenting duties lightly and everyone respected “Mother”.
