Going To Be Promoted To Grandma March 6, 2016


My youngest daughter and her fiance’ are pleased to announce that they are expecting a little one at the end of July / beginning of August. This will be the first child for both Raychel and Jon. Everyone in the family is over the moon with happiness.

This will also be my first grandchild! I’m already picturing sleep overs and sending the new mom and dad off on dinner dates so that I can hog all the baby time I can get.

I have started collecting all kinds of children’s books, and watching for sales on diapers and basically everything baby. My husband and I have decided to turn one of our extra bedrooms into the “grandchild” room. A room set up and waiting for the dear little ones to spend the night.

In the next few weeks Raychel will have an ultrasound to check the health of the baby. They may also be able to tell the gender. Mom and dad both would like to know if they are having a boy or a girl to help with planning the nursery and such. This will be exciting news if they are able to find out.

I told Raychel that when I was pregnant I didn’t know ahead of time if I was having a boy or a girl. It wasn’t that common back then. I was surprised with all three of babies. Two daughters and one son. I am the happiest, proudest mom, ever.

Soon I will be the happiest, proudest grandma, ever!

I am soon going to become the mother of a US Marine. My son, Colton, is in the process for the delayed entry program. Not because he wants to wait around, but because there are that many people enlisting. His probable date to leave for boot camp is December 2012 or January 2013. That waiting is going to be pure torture for me! I’m saddened that he has chosen such a dangerous profession right now, but in the words of my wise 96-year-old grandmother, “If it’s something he’s going to enjoy, you have to support him.”  

On the other hand, I am very proud of him for being such a brave, courageous American. I’m sure a lot of you military parents can certainly relate. You’ll have to send me some comments on how you are coping and what  things you do to keep yourself busy so that you don’t dwell on the dangerous part. i would love to hear from you.
