elizabeth-copy-2.jpgTry as I might I can't get anything done today.....my little grand-daughter Elizabeth is the focus of my attention. She makes my heart leap every time I see her....it's a wonderful relationship.

I need to get on with the bears but who could resist a game or two with her...

She's adorable; absolutely.  I'd put down my bear in heartbeat to play with Elizabeth.

I don't know whether I'm to be a nana, nannie, granny, grandma...as all we get right now is babble! I guess they find their own name for you...as one of my customers husbands ended up being called Bam-Bam and the childish version of Grandad has stuck for 18 years!!

My second grand-child is due next week.........!!!!! Double joy!!!!

Shantell, is, "I can't wait to be a grandma" REALLY the message you want to be sending to your two hot young boys? You do realize, I imagine, what that would ENTAIL, on their part?

:rolleyes:

Oh yeah...I'm aware...  bear_shocked   It was bad enough as a kid realizing that you parents did that kind of stuff...but even worse as a parent of children old enough to...  bear_wacko   bear_wacko   bear_wacko

So, this is between us...I'm not telling them I feel that way...and I have a daughter too so I just take a deep breath every time I hear one of them say, "Mom, I need to talk to you...."

HA! bear_original bear_tongue

Hey, my time is coming.  My boys are sweetness and light and innocence, still, at 10 and 12.  But I'm all too aware it won't last.  My older one is in 7th grade.  If he knew what I was doing in 7th grade... <snickering>... he would be utterly grossed out.  THANK GOODNESS FOR THAT!!!

When he thinks, instead, "Ohhhh... interesting....... I should try that myself...." that's the day I start having a drinking problem.

Elizabeth is so cute, and I'm not a baby person. My daughter is 10 so the grandma thing is hopefully ages off. You don't look old enough Jenny, and no I'm not creeping, look at Jenny's web site. You must be a young nana.

Shantell,  the above reminds me when my youngest son was 14 and I knew he had been 'active' (precocious). He came and said just those words one day. My heart sank and then he told me he had started smoking! I breathed a sign of relief and then realized that the smoking was almost as bad.  :cry:

And as for not knowing what name you're going to have as a grandmother. My oldest daughter was the first grandchild for both sides. She started calling her grandmothers Bama and New Bama for my husband's mother. It stuck for all the following grandchildren (20). My mother passed away a couple of years ago and the name Bama will not be used again. I have become the surrogate grandmother for my youngest (20 yr difference) sister and brother's children and they call me Granmer. If my own children ever produce that's the name I'll keep!
