Happy Ground Hog Day!

Happy Ground Hog Day!

Today is also my oldest grandchild's birthday. Happy 9th Birthday, Eliza!

I fondly recall that stormy day in 2004, when I got the phone call saying, "It's a GIRL! When can you come see her?" If I could have, I would have left that minute to drive the 100 mile drive to see my first born daughter and meet her first born daughter.

I waited till my husband got off work, and we drove to the hospital and got to hug on that precious baby till they announced that "Visiting Hours are OVER" -

I sure wish I could spend today with her....

    I became a mother for the first time at 21 and the last time just before I turned 40.

    I became a grandmother for the first time at ag 42.

    My oldest dd was 21 when she had her first child.
    She made my youngest child an uncle at the age of 3!
    His comment, when he found out he was going to be an uncle:

    "I can't be an uncle! Uncle's are old, bald, and have big noses." emoticon
    That is, my son's uncles are old, bald and have big noses. {grin}
