I lied when I said I wouldn't post that I was fine.
I don't know what happened. I am going to see my doctor tomorrow. My teeth hurt, all of them, so maybe it's some weird chemo side effect? But, I am up and about like nothing happened. I even went shopping today. So odd.
Anyway, I'm bored with me. Want to see something cute?
This is my oldest son's girlfriend. They have been together for 7 years so I think it's safe to say that she could end up producing a grandchild for me. Which would be an unbelievably cute child, and which I would totally love and am looking forward to. And, I would babysit every day if necessary. Of course, I'd buy lots and lots of adorable clothes for the child. And, practical stuff, like diapers, too. But mostly toys, many, many toys. And those teeny little shoes that are really socks. And hats, me and the baby could be twins in wearing hats. And, of course, there would be zoo trips, and park trips, and we would often go get ice cream and go to the river and even Disneyland. I totally love my grandchild, and the baby is going to be super cute, and I am going to have so much fun with that child and spoil him or her - but in a good way, the way a grandmother is supposed to. With clothes and toys and lots of babysitting and little trips everywhere, like to pick blueberries, and the toy store, and to fairs, and then just do quiet things like read books.
But, no pressure.
You know how you try to raise your children to do things in the right order? Finish school, get a good job, then get married, then produce children?
That has backfired on me. My son took it seriously, and is doing it in that order.
Fortunately, he is now nearly done with school and has already begun his career in HVAC repair. He was always a mechanical child. I couldn't be prouder.
Well, unless I had a grandchild, of course.
But, no pressure.
