"Living" Proof That Kids DO Listen to Parents....

Well....not all the time. 
But sometimes. 
And this blog post highlights one of those "sometimes" moments. 
You see, while my daughter was growing up there was one thing I drilled into her brain. 
Well, actually, there was more than one thing.
You know, there was the usual...don't do drugs, don't talk to strangers, don't sit too close to the TV....etc. etc.  You get the idea. 
But there was one thing of the utmost importance. 
It went something like this.....
"I think 50 would be a good age for me to be a grandma...."
"Mom....I am not waiting until 30 to have kids." 
She maintained that stance for a long time.
And guess what happened. 
I turned 50.  And she just turned 30. 
And no baby.
So, you see, she did listen. 
And like the good daughter she obeyed....hee. 

In fact, she obeyed sooooo well. 
She granted my wish. 
And waited until I was well into 50
to give me this news that in May I would be joining a new club......

Yes!  I am going to be a grandma!
Very exciting! 
Now, my daughter is not the documenter that I am. 
So, there are no pictures of the stick she pee'd on. 
( I know....I'm weird!)
And they left the first ultrasound picture in the car where, of course, it faded.  
But there will be plenty of pictures and memories to document in the future. 
I'm looking so forward to it.

Congratulations, Wendy! I am in that club too! My first grandbaby (a girl) is due Nov. 14th. I can't wait to see her!

Now you can crochet some fun baby things. Go find your hook!

Congratulations Wendy... But it is still hard to imagine you as a Grandma... just sayin'.

Congrats! Wanted to stop by and thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. I'm still not finished with that blanket, and I'm taking a break from it so I can knit myself a shawl. Maybe that's why it takes me so long to finish things. Hmmmm... ;-)
