I once saw a sticker on someone’s car that said.
‘If I’d known what being a grandparent was like, I’d never have been a parent’.
I thought this was very amusing at the time. Now I know what it’s like, at least the feelings you get as the mother of a daughter who is having a baby.
My daughter all through her pregnancy was so clued up on everything that was happening. When I had her 28 years ago I hadn’t a clue really as to what to expect.
I know that I used to look at the bump and think ‘how the hell is that going to come out!’
Anyway after a 3 day labour my grandson was finally born on Boxing Day to Saskia and Eddie. He is truly beautiful and know that I will be a very proud granny!
