I’m Ready!

Friday I was jumpy and fidgety and holy hell cray cray as some of you say (fine, as I say).  I needed a run desperately. Husband even called me mid-morning: You’re gonna go run, right? Meh.  I wasn’t feeling it, which I can tell you is unusual. Then, I thought of Husband and how he …

11 Things I Loved About Mothering

Not a grandmama….yet! I am still having a difficult time imagining myself as a grandmother.  Just this week I’ve cussed, threatened to kick some figurative ass, eaten candy, danced a little in the streets when I was running, and yelled, “HEY, BABY!” to a neighbor.  I don’t know any grannies like me.  Do you? WHO …

Baby, Oh Baby

Let me tell y’all that I’m feeling the excitement grow as FB* dives lower and Momma starts peculating.  No.  Nothing, as in active labor, is happening right now, but it could happen in under a week.  I have the 29th in the baby-pool, but Girl needs to get to the 31st, for school purposes. ON …

Is It The Same?

I can’t get out of my mind how Boy and Mrs. Boy must be feeling as they round third to FB’s due date. All the emotions prior to Boy’s birth have settled in my bones these last few weeks.  They appear in moments of quiet.  They shout YES! when I get an update from Boy.  …

Happy Birthday, Boy!

Today is Boy’s birthday.  In a few short weeks he will become a first time dad (making me a first time grandmomma!).  In a few short weeks he’s going to intimately understand the deepest love there is on this planet.  In a few short weeks he’s going to look at me, not as an insane …

Directions To The Hospital

I checked my email first thing this morning and BAM! there in my in-box, from Mrs. Girl, were instructions on how to get to the hospital when the time comes for FB* to be born. It gave me a thrill.  This thing is gettin’ real, y’all. Not that it isn’t already, but you know how …

NOOOOOOOOooooo!

NOOOOOOOOoooooo! This was my internal reaction when Boy casually told me of his future plans to move out-of-state -someday- and take my future grandchild with him. NOOOOOOOOOOoooooo! My outward reaction was a bit more muted, but nevertheless sad/disappointed/and starting the grieving process. It’s bad enough that Boy and Mrs. Boy live 4.5 hours away, but …

Me? I’m Gonna Be a W-H-A-T?!

Oh Dear Readers, I’m going to be a grandmother.  Me.  The gal who cusses like a sailor, shoots guns, runs marathons, yells at the Crazy Bitches of Whatever City at Bravo, is mortified by Honey Boo Boo but still manages to watch, eats candy like a 12-year-old, snorts while laughing and finds fart jokes immensely …
