I just want you all to know that everything they say about being a Grandmother is true. Grandbabies are life’s reward for having their parents in the first place. I wish I had the way with words that could convey the swelling in your heart and throat and the tears that creep up behind your eyeballs when one of those darlin’ grandchildren smile at you.
Francesca is going to be the middle sister, in a family of three! Oh I do hope baby number three is another girl – I’m sure that sounds really selfish since I think Tom is hoping for a boy, but that’s the glory of being a Grandma, you can say something like that and get away with it.
