Guess what happened today?
Our first grandchild, Theodore James Swift was born – August 25th, at 7:46 AM, nine pounds, two ounces, twenty inches long. I know many of you have been sharing my anticipation through these past few weeks, and I have loved and appreciated everyone’s interest and delight.
Not so long ago a longtime Parenting Place participant was having a garage sale selling some of her baby things. She mentioned to her 7-year-old daughter that I was stopping by to take a look at some of the items because I was going to be a grandma. At that, Laura looked puzzled, “You mean Fran isn’t a grandma already?”
Well, Laura, now I am an official grandma at last and I love the way it feels.
