Yep, that’s what I said.
More like ‘What? When? How?’
Well, my 17 year old and his girlfriend are expecting. Yes, I know. They’re young. They’ve got a lot of life to live. Yes, it will probably change how their lives go from here. I know all the ‘OH NO’s’ and the ‘BUTs’.
So, here I’m faced with the fact that I’ll be a grandma at the ripe, young age of 39 (possibly 38, right before my birthday). Payback from my dad, maybe? He was 39 when Josh was born.
Yeah, the good thing is I’ll be young enough to be a ‘cool’ grandma. I hope.
I don’t know how to be a grandma. I don’t even know how to be a great mom most days. How in the hell am I going to do this? How the hell are they going to go to college? How in the hell is this happening so soon?
I was bummed when I saw the names they picked. Not because they’re not great names. But, because, if it’s a girl, the family name incorporation stops there. I know, it’s petty, but it’s something I’ve carried on from my parents and their parents, etc.
So, to those of you who read this. I need some insight. Some wisdom to pass on, maybe. Some ideas. Anything! Tips for the kids. Tips for me. Anything at all!
