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.
