Baby Watch

We're on Baby Watch. Grandbaby #2 is due any second and it's really difficult for me to concentrate on anything until this wee little girl introduces herself. Her Mommy and Daddy are quite ready, as well. Finding the wait hardest, though, is four-year old Charlotte. The last couple of days she's felt a little anxious. While she is more than ready to be a big sister, all this waiting is proving difficult. She tried to explain her anxieties to my daughter the other night. Lottie had watched an episode of "Martha and George" or maybe it's "George and Martha" a few days earlier. At some point George said that he just couldn't stop thinking about doughnuts. This was a sub-text in the show...you know, how do you stop thinking about stuff that is just on your mind and bothering you. Obviously this baby business is on Lottie's mind. She turned to her Mom and said, "I can't stop thinking about doughnuts." Then she burst into tears. [sigh]

Lin – I love this story and, especially, the Snow White picture. Your love for your grandchildren is so obvious--hope all goes well with the new arrival.

Congrats!
