For those who have become a grandparent for the first time, I am happy for them. But with 17 grand and great grand children, I just have run out of excitement. I have a pile of baby's first picture taken in the nursey right after they are born. None of them are labeled with a name. They all look alike. Every one of them have blonde hair. And they all have dark eyes. The color hasn't come in yet.

A couple of years ago, Mom was quite literally on her death-bed. We got her fixed up and home and settled in when my niece called to tell her grandmother she was pregnant with Mom's first great-grandchild. "I knew I lived through this for a reason!!!" Mom said. She said she thought she'd never hold a baby of hers in her arms again. I joked with her that it is her own fault, she raised us all (her kids and her grands alike) not to have children until we were adults and in stable relationships. Well, now she is awaiting her second great-grand-baby. Another reason to live yet another day!
