When I first found out I was pregnant almost two years ago to the day, I not only realized that my life was going to be forever changed, but that the dynamic in my family was also going to shift. As one of four girls, my son was going to be the first grandchild on my side. And while I knew this was going to be significant, I had NO idea what that was actually going to mean.
My parents had never pressured us to have kids or whined continuously that they were not yet grandparents, so even though they were excited, I never thought they’d be the type to be constantly showing their friends (or the cashier at the grocery store!) the latest pictures from Facebook.
But I was wrong.
And to say this shocked my Mom most of all, is most definitely a true statement. She became “obsessed” with this little man in a way none of us expected.
