Doug and I are finally going to be grandparents!! I can not tell you how long I have waited for this to happen. It may seem silly but back when Doug and I decided to start our little family, I thought I had it all figured out. I planned to have all my kids before I turned 30, yes this was done on purpose and for the sole purpose of being a young grandma. I just always wanted to be a fun, cool and young grandma so I could still keep up with them and to be able do all the fun things with them. Why I was thinking about that when I was in my early 20’s??? I will never know? But as we all know, we can plan things out perfectly and try our best to make things happen the way we want them to, but god’s plan always wins out.
It seemed that slowly one by one almost all of my friends have become grandparents, some even have more than one grandbaby, Even my youngest brother Jeff is expecting his second one any day now! While I was super happy for all of them, I would get a tiny tinge of jealousy every single time I heard the news.
Well my friends, it is finally our turn!! In February Haden and Kaiti invited us to dinner to celebrate a big promotion he got at work. Well the promotion was really that he was going to be a dad! I was so excited! You never know how you will react to news like that, I thought I would be jumping up and down like a crazy person but instead I just instantly cried, I was just over come by the news, I couldn’t believe it, think I was in shock!
Now came the hard part, the baby isn’t due until September 22nd, so they didn’t want us to tell anyone until they were ready. Man that was torture!
Finally on April 3rd they announced it to the world! Whew that was rough keeping that in!
Last night they had a gender reveal party. It’s funny because I always thought I would have a strong desire for a girl since I’ve always wanted one, and since I only had boys I always thought I would just have girl grandbabies. But once they told me they were pregnant I honestly didn’t care if they had a boy or a girl, just as long as it was happy and healthy. As much as I wanted to dream of having a girl grandbaby, I just kept thinking it was a boy. I honestly just wanted to know one way or the other so I can start shopping!! LOL
We are so happy it’s a boy!! I know how to hang with boys, so this will be right up my alley, and if this little guy is anything like his father, we are going to have some fun and silly times ahead and I honestly cant wait!! I’ve waited and planned for this for almost 30 years and I can honestly say I love him already!
