Uncharted terriroty

Grandchildren. That is a big word. Grandparents. That is also a big word. It is a step up from parents. One generation up to be specific. I am contemplating how my life is about to change. I am going to have a grandson in the near future. Today was ultrasound day just before the regular weekly OB visit. We were running a few minutes later than I wanted to but we arrived at the ultrasound place in time to see most of the procedure. I don't know how they can make sense of all the 'stuff' they see on the monitor, but the technician told us what we were looking at. Jack definately is a little baby boy, so she pointed out. We saw his heart, kidneys, bladder, stomach, head, hands, legs and a bunch of stuff I have no idea what it was. But it was all Jack. I have never been in this position...about to become a grandmother to someone so special. Friends tell us our lives will never be the same. I don't know how to translate that, but I am ready for the task. Whatever Jack calls me will be my title for him. How he refers to me. Living in the 'house of Mouse' I am positive he and I will have lots of fun playing on days when he comes over to see me.
There are only a few weeks, days really, until his arrival. I am limiting my appointments and travel until after his arrival. I want to be available for when he decides to make his appearance. This is a very exciting time for me. I have never experienced this before. I am looking forward to this. Words are inadequate to apply to this event.

Tell me about it! I'm starting to get nervous that I'll be in class by the time he decides to come. Hopefully he's heard me talk about my schedule and understands he needs to stick with March to make it easier on me. I guess that will be the first sign to see if he will listen to his Aunt Pwamela.
