Becoming a Grandma – Again!

Becoming a Grandma – Again!

I’m pregnant.

Well, I’m not really pregnant in the way you are thinking, but I am pregnant with baby thoughts and dreams and I have officially downloaded a pregnancy app on my iPhone. All this was spurred on by my son and his wife. Let me tell you what happened.

Back on Thanksgiving, we Skyped with our son and daughter-in-law who live one state away. We had a great conversation about their home remodeling projects and their jobs…you know… the usual stuff. Toward the end of the conversation our son said that he had asked another family member to hide a present in our kitchen. Our job was to find the present. He asked that we take the iPad with us so they could be a part of our search and give us those warmer/colder clues. We started at the pantry. Everything looked normal. Then I started toward the cupboard and immediately heard “colder”. The oven is close to the pantry so we headed that way to a resounding shout of “warmer”.  I opened the oven door and here’s what I found…

Bun in the Oven

…a bun in the oven!

I’ll let your imagination take care of the sound effects and the dance moves…let’s just say we are delighted that we’re becoming a grandma and grandpa again.

How did you tell your family that you were expecting?
