Good News Is Hard to Keep To Yourself

Ever get good news that you can't tell?  You're excited and happy, but you aren't supposed to tell.  When that happens...

*I'm afraid to call my little sister because I know I'll want to share the news with her.

*I can't think of anything to blog about except the good news.  I end up with major writer's block.

*Even commenting on other blogs becomes a minefield.  I have to be tricky to avoid spilling the beans.

*I avoid some friends because all I want to do is tell them. 

*Facebook just isn't the same when you can't share the news. 

So... finally...I can tell the news:  I am going to be a Grandmother!!

Right before Christmas, K and CT found out that they were going to be parents at the end of August.  It was a bit of a surprise to them.  They weren't trying to start a family, but not avoiding it either.  They have friends who spent several years waiting for a new arrival.  They figured that would be them.  Nope.  The baby will arrive a month before their first wedding anniversary.  And now that the shock has worn off, they are quite excited!

Dandy, if you're out there, does this sound familiar?  I have had to avoid your blog for the past couple of months.  There were just a few too many similarities!

Yes, I think 2011 has all kinds of good things in store.  And...

We're going to be a Grandma and Grandpa, a grandmother and grandfather, a gran and gramps, a Nana CoCo and Papa, a Mimi and Pops, a....  well, we haven't settled on the perfect moniker yet.  Perhaps the little one will choose it for us.  But...

I can finally tell the news!  There is going to be a grand baby on Easy Street!

Woot! Woot! It's the best! I was nana cam, until curtis decided "nanny cam" was more fitting. They certainly "call the shots" those grandbabies do! Congratulations!
