just learned we are to become grandparents

OK I am very happy to learn that we are going to see our first grandchild next Spring, but I did not expect to be in tears half the day.

I feel in nearly as much awe as when I held my own first baby. It's been such a deluge of emotions. Just the miracle of life and the reverence and gratefulness that I've been blessed enough to live to experience this much of the cycle of life.

I had to sit down and bawl at my son's wedding 3 yrs ago. It was sort of embarrassing. I mean, everyone else was in control. I'd just come off chemo and radiation and was cancer-free and my hair had grown back and I was just feeling so blessed to be able to be there.

I don't like that I keep coming apart like this. So I am choosing to spill it out here this time and hoping I won't puddle out in public again. I thought I was OVER the feelings that my life was over at that time. I feel like I need a TRUNK with a KEY to corral all my emotions and then puhleez lose the key!

brynnie.
i'm not familiar with your story but hey! it's good to have those emotions and i think its awesome and healthy to show them however they come out.

My sis is 5 months pregnant (first one in the family) and when she told me I yelled, screamed and cried like a little baby, all out of joy...people in the adjacent offices came over to see if I was allright (OK that was embarassin, LOL).

Congratulations and I'm so happy for all your blessings!!

I just keep "weeping". My husband is skipping yoga class and we are going out for supper.

I have had this little soft dolly that I bought at a garage sale one day -- I went immediately and found it to give to them. Not until now did I know why I'd gotten it that day.

Just kind of unglued.

mmmm, yes, first. I've calmed down.

It is such a surrealistic feeling. Because we have gone through the thrills and the magic of having another little soul to nourish, and NOW we get to step sideways and watch that good soul nuture his own child. Just awesome.

I feel so humbled and grateful and blessed. It is like looking with a telescope through eternity.

It's going to be such a long wait, po. Until we can count fingers and toes....I'm feeling like Double, dancing. That's why I keep trying to come here and tamp it down a little till they tell other people.

Hi Brynnie,

Congratulations!!! Is this your first grandchild? I can share in your joy, I just found out last week that I am going to be the grandmother of a little girl! Saw her on the ultrasound last week and she kept raising her hands over her head, it is amazing isn't it? I cried too, something about the miracle of life, new beginnings, that are so special!

Brynnie,

Congratulations! Don't be embarrassed about your emotions - you are who you are and it's okay to cry!

Thanks you guys!! OMW, same to you! Is this your first also?

LTC, I know it's OK to cry, but I just come apart sometimes.

This is kind of funny -- I told my son he was reminding me of Snoopy doing a dance with his smug mug in the air. Serious, you can't peel him off the ceiling he's so proud. I/we must have watched alot of cartoons. He said he felt like this animation he's seen where a bunch of seagulls land on a dock and the beach and just walk around claiming every scrap, saying "mine", "mine", "mine".

Hi Brynnie,
Yes it is my first. Very cute story about your son! I remember that movie, but for the life of me cannot think of the title!

In sharing stories of sons becoming fathers, I will never forget the look on my son's face when he found out, he just could not stop grinning, and kept saying over and over, "Daddy's little girl!" It is exciting in many ways, when you think how such a little one can effect a whole family! 🙂

Congrats again!

Oh yes, it's awesome watching guys become Dads. My husband patted my belly in front of his parents when I was just starting to show and said, "Look what *I* did" with this big giant grin. It was so funny.

lovetoc...

How very sweet, that is a cute story!! And that must have made you evne happier at the prospect of becoming a mom! It's fun too to see it turned around. I always wondered what kind of dads my sons would/will make. Have waited to be a grandma for a long time...always joked that I would have grand-daughters since I had boys, but wouldn't care if it were a boy or a girl!!
