A woman asked her mom to look after some plants and ended up getting a series of photos dropping some not-so-subtle hints about grandbabies.
When my parents found out my wife was pregnant, they were happier about it than I was. I know it’s messed up to admit, but maybe it’s because they knew what to expect and went through that rodeo several times themselves.
My dad was stoked, my mom was even more stoked and my grandmother was super-duper stoked, probably because she’s gonna be a GREAT-grandmother, which must unlock some new mental powers or deeper philosophical understandings of the way the world works.
It must be a total trip seeing a little human you raised from a crying, pants-pooping terror into a full-fledged adult popping out monsters of their own, so I can understand why so many people look forward to it as much as they do.
The trouble is, everyone has kids at their own pace. Sure, biological clocks tick and tock, but do you really want to be the mom or dad you flat-out asks, “So where my grandbabies at?”
Sure, it’s a pretty common approach for many, but having a bit more finesse is probably the best way to go. Finesse means different things to different people, but for Regan’s mom, it means being absolutely charming and hilarious.
