As important as your children are, you likely have a special place in your heart for your grandkids, and what better way to show them how you feel than with some heartfelt granddaughter or grandson quotes.

Granddaughter and grandson quotes can serve as loving reminders of just how special they are to you. They can be motivational, loving, or simply inspire the best in your favorite little ones.

They’re meant to cheer your loved ones up, and let them know that you’re thinking about them. They can show them that they inspire you with their youth and tireless desire to discover new things.

How they make you feel young again.

I know that this might feel like a slight deviation from the usual mamma stuff, but a grandmother is a mother too.

I’m also sure there’s a grandfather or two out there who’s interested in finding some granddaughter or grandson quotes to share with his grandchildren as well.

While I’m not a grandmother myself quite yet, I’ve made sure to do some early prep-work for the future,, and have put together a list of grandchildren quotes that will come in handy when I need something to help inspire me to write something for my grandson and daughter.

I hope that a few of them can help you do the same.

I’m sure you all remember how eager you were to go to your grandparent’s house because they were such pushovers. Well, now it’s your turn to be that awesome grandparent.

After all, who can resist the happy sounds of children running to hug you as soon as they walk through the door?
