NOOOOO!! It just can’t be!


It’s the G word. I mean. I love the little kid that will soon be part of my daughter’s family, but Grandma? Grandma”! Are you kidding me? It doesn’t really hit you until you see it on a package.


We celebrated Christmas at my mother’s house yesterday. I walked away from it knowing two things.
1. I’m officially old.
2. My daughter and her fiancé are made for each other.


Here they are, sporting the gifts they exchanged. Clearly, it was meant to be.

I have had a hard time coming to terms with the whole Grandma thing too. I think it's because I had 7 children and they were spread out enough that I had children in public school from 1978 to 2009. I was just too exhausted to think about having more little bodies around. My oldest granddaughter(of soon to be 10 grandchildren) is now 10 and while I love her to pieces I'm still not completely at ease with the "Grandma thing". I know I'm in the minority because all my friends can't wait for the grandkids to come over. It's just yet another one of my quirks that I need to deal with.

Those two are too funny!

When I got married, I became a wife, a step-mom and a grandma all in one day! I'm glad I didn't really stop and think about it beforehand, lol!

Being Grandma is fun... you'll love it! After all, it's just a name that means you can get away with more!

Well relax there Grandma, by the time you get used to it there will be one calling you Great Grandma .... your only as old as YOU feel.

Being a grandma is not a terminal disease. It's quite possibly one of the best things that can ever happen to you. After all, you get all the fun of children without having to actually raise them. All the fun and none of the responsibility. Relax and enjoy it, Granny Christine.

Karen...I know where you live.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! Being a grandma is the best!!! You will now have time to be able to do all the fun stuff with the grandchild. Enjoy, and what a wonderful Christmas gift.

It's not that bad....mine call me Mamaw.

My aunt had a grand daughter who couldn't say Grandma so for some reason she started calling her Honey. Too cute!

Wait until you hear someone 2-3 years younger than you are referred to as "elderly."

What a blessing.

You're a very young Grandma. I was officially "advanced maternal age" when I was pregnant with Wyatt, which translates to "if he waits as long to have kids as i did, I'll be pushing 80 before I'm a grandma"!

just another perspective.. :)
