NGOTB

Probably by the time any of you reads this blog, we will have two new little girls in our "family". J's daughter gave birth on Wednesday to a sweet, sweet, tiny girl, who came exactly one month early and weighed somewhere in the neighborhood of 5 pounds. When I last talked to J, all was well with both "Peanut" and her mom. And Her Eminence's daughter-in-law is anticipating the birth this weekend of her dumpling. Let's hope all goes well for them.

Someone asked me recently if grandmothers had postpartum depression. I told her that I know I had crying jags after Co was born, probably from the release of anticipation, worry, and tension. It was one time that I really missed my mom. Becoming a grandmother is very different from becoming a mother, because your precious baby is the one who is giving birth to this precious grandchild. In addition to the concern about the gc's health, a grandma tends to have worries about how her child is handling this experience. There should be support groups for Grandmas!

Enough. Love you, and God bless.

I agree. There needs to be a support group for us!

I fielded a series of calls from Michael yesterday. He's freaking out, but not too much. A little is to be expected. I am going up there (UK)tonight. Being the daddy's mom can be hard because the momma has a whole team of peeps taking care of her, but the daddy has...his mommy :)
