It's all about the verbage...............
Last Sunday I was surprised and excited to find out that I was expecting my first grandchild !
It is so exciting, in fact, that I can not sleep, get a bad cases of the 'what-if's", and can barely bring myself to tell people about it !
It is the verbage.
My Mothers mom was a fabulous grandmother but she had white hair the minute I remember her.
I have seen pictures of her when she was young and she was gorgeous with black hair and a lovely smile.
And while I don't have white hair or consider myself a knockout, I don't consider myself old !
Old is Galapagos tortoise old, pyramid old, dinosaur old, even universe old !
The word grandmother is almost a synonym to the word 'old' in my mind.
Not older...... but OLD !
How will I avoid this?
I will be a 'Re-Mom'.
Like recycling my motherhood.
It is my 'green' word for grandmother.
Just taking care of and enjoying kids........AGAIN.
No age involved. None.
Re-Mom........ I like it !
Dodged that bullet. I feel better already.
Lets go eat cereal, watch some cartoons and then build a sheet fort.
Thanks for reading my blog!
