Going on Vacation and Going to be a Grandma!

I'll be going down to Richmond the next two weeks on a vacation and also to become a grandma! My oldest son and his wife are having a baby on July 22nd. The sonogram tells us it will be a girl! I'm very excited but feel kind of funny about being a grandmother. I just still feel I am too young!!! Maybe because my youngest son is only 10! Anyhow, we've decided that my mom will still be called grandma even though she will be a great grandma and I will be MommyDebbie...which I think is wonderful!!! Anything but grandma! I won't have my computer with me so I will share all my updates with you when I get back! I will still try to check in using my son's computer from time to time to see all the great recipes!

My three grands call me Mimi, but to tell you the truth I really don't care what they call me, because they are the joy in my life. Being a grandma is a wonderful thing, as you will soon see.

Congratulations. That's big news. And for a little added perspective on being a grandma, I invite you to check out this brief video -- ahamoment.com/pg/moments/view/1534 -- it's one woman's "aha moment" experienced as she became a grandma for the first time. I hope you like it, and I hope you'll check out the rest of the site, which was created by Mutual of Omaha to highlight inspirational personal stories, good works, and "aha moments" of all kinds.

Thanks and best of luck to you and your whole family,

Have a wonderful visit. Young or old being a grandma is one of life's joys. You're so young folks will think you are the baby's mother :-).
Enjoy every moment of it.

Holy cow! you're gonna be a GRANDMA!! For some reason I always envisioned you as a much younger person, because of the fresh vigor and spirit in your blog! But what happy days are ahead of you!
