I think I may be a grandmother soon.

    What does it mean? Can I get a buggy again and stroll round looking important? Will it be a girl or a boy? Should I interfere or not?

    It will be tri-lingual, and so I must learn Russian. Where will we go, and what may we do? Sorry, just so delighted.

    It is a wonderful time. All the fun of children with very little of the stress.

    I have tried very hard not to interfere, but I guess you would need to ask my children if I have succeeded.

    Congratulations! I've never been one, but according to my sources it's the best thing ever. In fact, it's even better than having your own kids.

    PS: why do you keep changing your username? Do you get bored easily..?

    Pretty impressive for a neonate.

    Is the pregnancy confirmed? The thread title doesn't seem to suggest it is.

    I don't think it will be a minkey! I want a girl, with my genes. Still, what will be will be. There must be another of me out there at some point.

    Herr Red Quilt, a pregnancy can be confirmed, but there is not necessarily a baby at the end of it, as I know to my peril. Still, I'm dancing and it's not my womb.

    Yes, you've written extensively about that. I was just wondering if you included the word 'think' in your thread title because you suspected 'the Russian' might be pregnant rather than actually knowing that's all.

    Oh, and there's no need to address me in that way!

    Is, and luckily after her two and a half visa was approved. My son has worked his thingys off to do this, but it is a love story.

    CONGRATULATIONS to the grandmother-to-be and son/daughter? Must admit I'm not relishing the opportunity myself (know son and fiancee have plans to start their family as soon as they've tied the knot next Feb.;)) but you do sound excited.

    Should you interfere? Do you really need to ask?

    No, I'll do it my way!

    To get her pregnant, do you mean? Why was it so difficult?
  17. bluelemonade

    bluelemonade Occasional commenter

    And PS why do U have that dot on my head? I've tried to get rid.
  18. bluelemonade

    bluelemonade Occasional commenter

    No, it wasn't difficult after they were married and the visa was approved. You know nothing.

    It's a special badge for all soon-to-be grandmothers. Wear it with pride :)

    Ask Helen re Man about that if you like.
