I probably shouldn't be asking any more questions on my blog, since yesterday's query received NO correct answers. But this one is a tad easier and has nothing to do with deceased bards - plus I have picture clues for you tonight. Does anyone else remember Bill Cosby's PBS show for kids, Picture Picture? The theme song for that is playing (incessantly) in my mind right now. Please, make it stop!
Picture Clue #1 (adorable GrandDaughter doing her movie star thing...)
Picture Clue #2 (adorable GrandSon doing his chivalrous thing...)
Picture Clue #3 (Gorgeous daughter and Handsome Son-in-law - Not the parents of the above children, that would be a different Gorgeous daughter.) Are you getting warm?
Picture Clue #4 (Gorgeous daughter, donned in an apron, showing her domestic side that she obviously inherited from me - but something seems to be missing...)
Did you guess my exciting news? Yes, I'm going to be a GrandMama again! and again!!, because both of my married daughters are expecting babies. Brite, mother of the two adorable Grandchildren pictured above, is expecting again in November - and Jacqueline is due in January.
Everything you've ever heard about how wonderful it is to be a Grandmother is true.
I wasn't prepared for how quickly I'd be smitten with them...How every little thing they said and did would be so memorable...How much closer my daughter and I would become over our shared "motherhood"...How tough it would be to live so far from them!!!
I vividly remember the pit in my stomach and the tears in my eyes as I drove home after spending 11 days with my daughter and her first baby, my GrandSon, Cooper. It just felt weird to be leaving a baby I felt so attached to. Before I had grandchildren, I lived with all the babies I had loved...But this time I had fallen in love with a baby I had to leave 6 hours away (more like 8 if I was driving...)
And now I will have two more babies to love, and buy things for, and talk to on the phone, and pray for, and buy things for.
I am One Blessed Mama -
P.S. While I was searching for picture clues I came across this picture of Beatrice (see yesterday's post) in her better days. The kids took some more pictures of her today, with all the raccoon puncture holes "draining", but I know she'd be embarrassed if we used those for her Blog Debut. I'm sure she'd much rather you see her standing on a rack with a bunch of stinky shoes.
