Eeek! So, a couple months ago I mentioned that Kyle and his girlfriend Maddie were very unexpectedly expecting. Yes, I am going to be "grandma". Honestly, I've had a hard time coming to terms with it all. Maybe a little bit because I'm only 26 and not even sure that I'm done having babies of my own but mostly because it was all SO unexpected. But something wonderful happened today. A woman that I work with had her 1 year old granddaughter at the office with her for a few minutes this afternoon and as I watched this adorable little girl cuddle with her grandma I realized that not only could I do the grandma thing at this point in my life but I can LOVE it. It's no secret that I adore babies and I know that I will adore this little addition to our family more than I can imagine at this point. So here I go, not only coming to terms with it but embracing being a 26 year old Grandma. By the way, it's a girl!!! Avery Michele Gregory is due on March 25th 2011.
And in the latest news, Kyle and Maddie are now officially engaged so I'm also going to be a mother in law. Wow. The date is set for February 5th but it has changed several times in the past few days and could possibly change again... I'll keep it updated!
Life in our home is definitely a circus... but I love it. I have 4 step kids, a 4 year old super hero, almost 1 year old sweet girl, daughter-in-law and a 2 year old granddaughter to keep me on my toes. They are the highlight of my life and make me laugh every day.
