Just wanted to share with you wonderful folks that I am going to be a Grandma!
My daughter is very newly pregnant.
She is young...but the same age that I was when I had her, and she is a wonderful young woman, and I think she will be a wonderful Mom. I know that I will be a terrific Grandma!!!
I wouldn't have picked this path for her, but it is what it is. She is happy. Her boyfriend is kind and gentle person that will be a good dad.
When she told me, she had just taken the positive test, and was unsure how she felt about it herself. She has now grown used to the idea and is very excited and happy. She knows she has my full support and is very relieved about that.
After she told me, we were texting back and forth that night, and I kept telling her how wonderful she is, and she will be a great mom, etc...all the things a mom does, and she finally said,:
"You are making me cry mom! Why can't you just call me a slut and throw a chair at me, like Jordan's mom did when she told her she was pregnant?"
I explained to her, that she is a grown up and that there is no call for that behavior ever. We will treat this as a blessing, because the moment we all see that little face it WILL be nothing but a blessing.
This is probably normal, but I find myself much more worried about MY baby and her health, mental well being, etc, than I am about HER baby at this point.
I will keep you all posted as we go along...Hope everyone is well and happy.
Wow, you handled that so very well. I like to think I'd be the same way. My mom is the kind who would have called me a slut and thrown something at me. What's done is done, no need to argue or make her feel bad, it sounds like she's beating herself up enough.
So, congrats! And I hope your daughter has a healthy pregnancy and baby.
