What's your hang up?

So, for a while now people have asked me "oh man you look to young to be a grandma" or "wow, when did you have your daughter 12?" or "gosh, I bet you were not ready for that"

The answer is no, nope and no way....

I am old enough to be a grandma, duh-because I am one!

I was not 12 when I had my daughter....I was 16 thank you very much.

And last but not least-I was TOTALLY ready!  I've been ready since my daughter became an adult.  This is the circle of life baby & nothing makes me happier then being this new person....this grandma!

I have no hang ups, reservations or anything going into this.  From day one, I've been nothing but excited.  I don't care if he calls me grandma, maw, ma, mimi, meme, lele, tete, old lady, old scratchy, green toe....I don't care.  I just want to love him, get to know him....watch my daughter and son-in-law raise him (from afar)....and be the best old scratchy that I can be.

I am thankful for being a younger grandma then I guess people are used to seeing.....that means I can see this baby grow into a man, and watch him has his own children....are you kidding me, how amazing is that!?

Love & be loved people!
