Phew! Finally, I can tell a secret that I’ve been asked to keep for far too long . . . like all summer!
I’M GOING TO BE A GRANDMOTHER!!!! (Did you hear me screaming this, because I was?!?!) Screaming with delight and happiness.
All of this is due to two very special people: our daughter, Abbie, (aka Farmer’s Daughter) and her loving husband (and our wonderful son-in-law) Ed . . .
As you can see Abbie is absolutely beaming, glowing, whatever it is pregnant women do (when they’re not throwing up, etc.!) Actually, she’s been feeling GREAT, thank goodness!
And, well, yes of course, the two grandmothers-to-be have been acting just a little bit crazy. You see, we were asked to keep quiet about this until a reasonable time was decided on by Abbie and Ed for the official announcement. These kids are much more reasonable than the “grannies-to-be!”
The three lucky great-grandmothers are pretty excited too. I hear they’re calling everyone they know. . . and probably telling the guy at the gas station and people at the grocery story, too, . . . oh, no, wait, that’s the crazy grandmothers, Mom Marie (Mimi) and me (grandmother name still to be decided)!
Well, as I’m basking in this wonderful news, if you want to find out all the technical details—and read Abbie’s cliffhanger “Love Story” — click on over to Farmer’s Daughter and her new blog, “Country Baby.” She’s just opened that blog up to the public, but we crazy grandmothers have been commenting right along on that, so you may just want to skip all our crazy comments.
Oh . . . just wondering . . . do you think I’m crazy because I told the lovely woman at the drive-up window at Dunkin’ Donuts this morning? When she asked how I was doing today, I asked if she’d like to hear some really great news and I think I pretty much screamed, “I’M GOING TO BE A GRANDMOTHER!” Um, they already knew I was a little bit nuts, anyway.
CONGRATULATIONS ABBIE AND ED! WE ARE SO HAPPY FOR YOU AND WE KNOW YOU’LL MAKE WONDERFUL PARENTS!!! WE’RE ALSO EXTREMELY HAPPY FOR US!!!!!!!!!
