We went with Sarah and Dada to tour the hospital where she is going to deliver the baby tonight. Sarah and I both talked about what a large group we will probably have at the hospital. I’m really happy to have such a close family. And I am looking forward to being a Grandma. It will feel so good to have a baby in my arms again. I sometimes wonder if something is wrong with me because I was never really interested in holding other people’s babies, but I couldn’t get enough of my own. I’m anticipating the feel of peach fuzz on a soft scalp under my chin. I imagine the bond with my son will be even stronger than before. On a funny note, Sarah told me that her mother just realized that she is going to have to share the baby with me.
I will strive to be the kind of Grandma that simply accepts and loves, just like my Grandma Marcella.
