The Granddaughter Cometh!
As many of you may know, my daughter-in-law, Erica, will soon deliver our beautiful granddaughter.
Although most folks are familiar with calm and level-headed Dr. Phil, this granddad-to-be is quakin’ in his boots! I’ve raised two boys; I’m so out of my element. I have no idea what to do with a little girl!
When I first see my new grandchild, I’m sure I’ll be loaded down with so many Baby Gap dresses — not to mention teddy bears, baby booties and pink hair ribbons — unless she takes after her grandfather. Just kidding! By the way, I have promised Jay that I won’t be reading the little one bedtime stories from Self Matters or Relationship Rescue. There’s plenty of time for that later!
Seriously, it’s hard to believe the moment is so close. On this one, I’m turning to y’all for advice! I’d love to hear from all the grandparents out there: How did your life change when you first glimpsed that bundle of joy? Did you spoil your grandchild rotten and let him or her get away with things you never gave your own child a pass for?
Don’t forget to tell me what you think my granddaughter should call me. Boy, I can’t wait to hear what you come up with!
