My daughter Alison recently told me she and her husband Jason are going to have a baby soon! Yep! That’s right! I’m going to be a grandmother! I don’t have to tell anyone who knows me how excited I am!
As I thought about it last night, I realized that this changes everything for a lot of people. Not only will Alison and Jason be parents, Wally and I will be grandparents. Lauren will be an aunt. My dad, step-mother, and my mother-in-law will be great-grandparents for the first time! Even some of the extended family will gain new status (great-aunt, great-uncle, etc.) Everyone’s life will change and all because of a brand new baby!
