    Default I am a grandmother, now

    My daughter gave birth to a baby girl. I got to watch her be born...it was great. I had never seen a baby born up close and personal without I was doing the pushing.
    I hear that being a grandmother is much more fun than being a mom because the discipline is for the parents and spoiling is for grandma.

    Congrats!

    I've loved being an aunt - because I could not only spoil 'em, I could hand them back when their diapers were dirty. Aunts don't have to do those things. Its written in the rule book.

    I hear being a grandmother is even BETTER. Enjoy evry minute!

    Yes Hatlady,

    Auntie and Grandma can be the same in the spoiling and giving back stuff.

    SITC I have already been shopping!

    Rob, The mom is doing fine. I intend to go to her house for a few days to help her to adjust.

    My husband is half Japanese so my daughter wants him to call me by what Japanese children call their grandma's. Grandmother in japanese is Oba-chan but when they are babies they can't say it we read that some call them baba chan or just baba instead. So I'm referred to as baba. I think it's cute. It's quite hilarious though because I'm hispanic. LOL Lexie is an adorable name.

    How cute...my hubby is half hispanic...I think he wants to be called Papi,

    I think Welita will be too hard, possibly wele or lita. actually, just plain grandmommy might be great, too. I heard that grandkids sometimes name the grandparents.

    Take Care,

    Kare

    Woot! Congrats Karen!

    My son picked what he wanted to call his grandparents himself without much prompting really. He calls my mum and dad, Nanna and Grandad and he calls the ex's parents, Granny and Papa.

    My mum didn't like Nanna at first but that's what he started saying and now she loves it ~l~

    They're not babies for long of course so enjoy every minute of it. Sometimes the laughter of children is one of the best medicines! I hope it does wonders for you!
