It's normal, in the course of feeling like time flies, for the days to pass into years. Maybe it was even normal, when I had children, for the years to pass much faster. Before I knew it, my sons were out of college and married to wonderful young women. I went from young bride to new mom to mother-in-law in a blink.
And now, I have such happy news to share: my oldest son and his wife just had a baby boy!
I am now a grandmother. And that is an exquisite new role I love and cherish.
I didn't expect to be completely captivated and head over heels in love with this perfect magical boy, my grandson. Aiden. I am putty in his little starfish shaped hands.
You can call me Granny now. No kidding!
