Granny Sazzy!

Yup; DIL is pregnant. I am happy yet cautiously optimistic given their recent troubles. I wish I could be 'over the moon' happy, but such is life.

I can't wait to be the crazy grandma that introduces my grandchildren to bugs, snakes, birds, hiking--and someday, wine!

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

Aw congrats! I like the granny nickname too.

Yay! Congrats to you, DS and DIL.

Don't you have some Italian in your ancestry? If so then wine introductions should begin around 5 or 6 don't you think? We have to honor our heritage after all.

You're going to have that baby taking his/her first steps out on some trail along an East Texas swamp. I plan to be there with my camera and a canteen of wine. You know, as support.

Congrats Granny Sazzy.

Grandkids are the reward for not killing your kid when you had the chance.

I love being Grammy... no way to describe it... the kid is a tremendous amount of fun in a pint sized person.

Congrats Granny !!! (DS and DIL too !)
I feel similar with my new GS and his parents. They don't have the best relationship but keep working it on it.
I've decided just love on the little guy and be the best Grandma.

Are they going to find out what sex the baby is ?
We were calling him P months before he was born.

It's my life now, my choices, my mistakes to make and my victories to celebrate. His choices made me free of liars and betrayers in my life. That is priceless.

Thank you for all the good wishes! I'm still processing

I spoke to DS tonight; they're having serious money problems. Life can be very complicated...
