I think you learn how to be a grandparent with your
first grandchild. All the grandchildren that follow get
to benefit from the lessons you learn from the first.
What David and I have learned is that being grandparents
is one of the greatest joys in life and each new age and
stage bring even greater joys.
We were lucky enough that we got to take Caleb to pre-school
this morning. How did this little man grow so big
so quickly? Thought you might like to hear the
"leaving for school" conversation.
Ducca: I'll be your bus driver, Caleb.
Caleb: Good. Hi Mr. Busdriver.
Nana: Have a good day at school Caleb.
Caleb: I will (spoken with great excitement). Have a good day Grandma!
Grandma???? I'm Nana!!!
He's never called me Grandma a day in his life.
It sounded so cute, like he had learned "Grandma" at school.
And you know what? Grandma--Nana!
Whatever these precious boys decide to call me,
I'm fine with it.
