My baby girl called yesterday to tell me that she is engaged.
And I did not mention grandchildren to her at all--until this morning when she phoned. I assured her that I had faith in the decisions she and her fiance would make for their future... and I encouraged her to let those decisions be a reflection of what would work best for the two of them.
I'm sounding a bit like all the old farts that immediately ask "So when are you going to have children?"
But it's not like that at all. I am just absolutely thrilled that my odds for ever having grandchildren have just gotten better.
