                    Congrats!! :woohoo: :woohoo: You will be able to see your grandson living so close together. Since you are the grandmother do you get out of diaper duty? Being there when he was born must have been very special.

                          Being a grandma is sooooo wonderful! Just remember that it's Grandma's job to spoil them rotten before you send them back home. I've been told that I know what grandmothers are supposed to do!

                          I'm so happy for you.
