I'm glad I didn't delete this blog as I have a new purpose for it! I'm going to be a grandma!!!!! Keith and his fiancee are expecting my first grandbaby in August. I guess it's their first child, but since this is all about me it's my first grandbaby. HOW EXCITING!
When they told me at Thanksgiving, I surprised myself by bursting into happy tears. This did not surprise my daughter, she totally predicted my reaction. I'm not so sure I like someone being able to predict my moves!
This is a new role for me even before the baby has arrived and I'm trying to keep from being an overbearing bitch while expressing my joy and concern equally. This is not for wimps! In the meantime a coworker is pregnant and complaining about her meddling mother-in-law. These are tough relationships as we walk those fine lines between not enough involvement and too much.
A blog, THIS blog, would be a great place for me to work out those difficulties as I learn the tightrope of grandmother and mother-in-law. It's also a place for me to rattle out all of that parenting advice I'm just bursting to share with my son.
I doubt I will post everyday, but I will try to do something at least once a week.
