Good News Is Hard to Keep To Yourself
*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!
