I should have posted this last week when we received the news but I just have been a bad blogger lately. Guess I've been busy. Anyway....last weekend was Father's Day. Jeremy and Holly sent a gift to Cliff and told him not to open it til Sunday when we Skyped...ok...not a big deal. So after church we all got together via Skype and Cliff opened his gift from them. We were on Jason's laptop in the kitchen...I was busy making dinner so I didn't see the gift immediately...It was a picture frame with a piece of paper where a photo should go that said..."Photo Coming January 2013" Cliff was a little perplexed..he hadn't read the bottom of the frame that said "I love Grandpa" I read that part and knew immediately we were going to be GRANDPARENTS!!! OMGosh...my baby is going to be a DADDY!!! I screamed, I cried.....then of course we had to get all the details! They made me promise I wouldn't say anything on facebook until after they told Holly's parents. I behaved myself but I did post later on that evening.
We don't look excited now do we??? lol
We are totally thrilled for them. I had no idea I would be this excited about being a Gramma. It's funny cuz one of my co-workers asked me if I was going to be a Gramma anytime soon and I said I had no idea and I could wait til they decided it was right for them. As I have been thinking about it over the past week I decided it was like when the kids were little I never really felt like I was the "Minivan" driving girl and yet I drove one....I don't really feel like I am old enough to be a Gramma either....though heaven knows I am. Everyone tells me how wonderful it is to be a Gramma so I am going to take their word for it and look forward to January 2013.
If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware. The tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered around the house, the piles and piles of laundry lying around to be tackled, will disappear all too soon. And, you will, to your surprise, miss them profoundly.
