Hi girls

"Hi Mum- you are going to be a nan"


DD1 is pg and now living in Germany.

I am going to be a nan.
Gobsmacked is not the word as i feel i am too young at 36.
But i have got used to the idea now but those words hit me like a ton of bricks.

Dd is getting married asap. Her fiance is a lovely lad.

I will defy nanahood by still wearing my mini-skirts
dh has said i am too old now

I am pretty sure dd1 will be rooting through these boards.

Thanx for the messages

I want to be called nan or nanna.

re the twinsets-that is what dh said last night, I laughed my head off.

I told the old grandad-to-be he needs a flat cap and pipe
he was not amused-heehee

mind you neither was I.

Awww, congratulation, I can remember when my mum was a first time nan to my brothers offspring, she was walking on air for days. The granchildren are her life now and they range from 15 yr old Grand-daughter to our DS3 who is 4 months.

Enjoy it, it's will be great fun being a young nan.

Congratulations Doormat.
MY DPs have a thing on their fridge that says " If I'd known how wonderful grandchildren were I'd have had them first!"

Have you ever slpept with a grandad before? There's a thought.

Rofl Mummysurfer!

Wow, big news Nanadoormat, congratulations! You can't give up the mini skirts, I've only just started wearing them again because of you, and I'm 37! The grandchildren will need someone to show them how it should be done anyway .
