"Grandchildren are God's way of compensating us for growing old"

If you follow me on FaceBook, you may already know I am excited about becoming a "Nana".

I decided being called Grandma was not as whimsical or gingerbread scented as Nana. "Grandma" reeks of Vick's vapor rub, bright red nail polish, and perfume that enters the room before Grandma herself and stays long after she leaves.

I just found out 2 weeks ago that my first grandchild is a girl. The damage she has done to my checkbook already ... warms my heart.

I'll update as much as her mommy and daddy give me permission to.

Congratulations from one Nana to another. (You know we could never be called the "G" word.)

wow! but that sonogram is waaaay better than what was available even 8 years ago!! holy moly but you can really see it. none of that "is that a leg?"
I like Nana....I'm also fond of Nona, which is Italian for G'ma and (or Sandi!) are Grandma material!!!

You must be completely in love with this child already. How beautiful!

I can honestly say that being a grandparent is a 'sickness'. You will be on first name basis with all the sales clerks at "Babies R Us"...........

I LOVE it!! I remember thinking there could never be anything more wonderful than being a mother......I was wrong!
