Adult Grandkids Are Surprising Their Grandparents With a Sleepover & Their Reactions Will Melt Your Heart

As a child I loved nothing more than a sleepover at Grandma’s house with my cousins. I was fortunate enough to have two grandmas who lived less than 30 minutes from me, and plenty of cousins to gather with. Every Christmas Eve you could find me and my cousins at my paternal grandparents’ house for a sleepover and every New Year’s Eve (and countless weekends the rest of the year) you could find me and my cousins at my maternal grandma’s house. Those were truly the best of times. As a 46-year-old woman, I would give just about anything to be able to do it again. Both of my grandmothers are in heaven now, having both lived until the age of 95. It is one of the great joys of my life that I had them for so long.

Being a sentimental granddaughter who misses her grandparents at Christmas especially, I was thrilled to see a recent trend being recorded on TikTok of adult grandchildren surprising their grandparents with “adult grandkid sleepovers.” I say YES, YES, and YES to this trend! Let’s keep it going!

One lucky grandma, Pam Fair, 67 told TODAY.com about her experience as the recipient of one of these surprise grandkid sleepovers. She says she was sitting at home in Tupelo, Mississippi on December 20th when she got the surprise of her life: her three adult grandkids at her door in pajamas holding sleeping bags, ready to party.

“My daughter Brandi had mentioned that my grandkids wanted to come by that night but (they didn’t) so I washed my makeup off and put on my pajamas,” she told TODAY.com. “Then the doorbell rang.”

Daughter Brandi popped by to record Fair’s delight as her grandkids Madelyn, 23, Sydney, 21, and Jakob, 23, showed up, and she posted the video to TikTok with the caption, “Surprised their Nana with a sleepover. They haven’t done this since they were little.”
