Not from personal experience .. but grandparents rule is that you have to remember you can always give them back :)

your husband is only 45! my parents are much older and they won't be getting kids for at least another 10 years (though probably not at all).

congratulations!

Well my Son was married in October..... AND STILL NO GRANDCHILDREN..... We slow at everything in UK. :-)

I'm jealous. I want to be a grandma so bad but my girls aren't making it happen. One's been married 7 years and the other only since Aug. Maybe one day.

Congratualtions Di. 2 in one year. Your family is going to have a blast. My brother, sis, and I all had one within 8 months of each other and our family get togethers were so much fun.

I hope all goes well.

About what laurielblack and Kadi said -- that is my mom's "Grandmother Handbook" in a nutshell.

True story -- Neither my husband or I were allowed to jump on the bed growing up. Never. Not at all. Don't even try it. My mom taught my son and his cousins how to do it! Then, not to be outdone, my MIL joined in the act. Both kids jump away -- on the bed, the furniture, wherever they want.

Keep them in mind, and send good thoughts floating on the breeze for them until my daughter has healthily given birth and he's healthily in his parents and grandparents arms!

All I can day, di53 is there's no way you can be prepared for the all-consuming love that swallows up your heart for those babies! I've always loved babies, so I knew I would no doubt love grandbabies special, but when our little Abby was born, I realized, I had nooooooooooo idea how much love my heart could posssibly hold. I call it psycho-in-love :) My hubby and I are young grandparents too, and it is absolutely the coolest experience you will ever have the privilege of having!!!

Congratulations!!!!!!!!

YAY congrats!

That sounds like a fun idea :)

my advice is cherish with all your heart (not that i didnt think you would)
The thing my sons love best about their grandparents is that they have a
lolly drawer. LOL. Little treats waiting especially for them when we go visit. Sure puts a smile on their dial. :)

Advice from observing my mother and my nieces:
1. You give diapers--but don't change them.
2. You disciplined your children--they can discipline theirs.
3. Nutrition is not your domain--cookies, snacks before bedtime, and allowing them to eat all the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches they want is.
4. You are allowed to kidnap them at anytime and take them to all the fun places before their parents do--and send them home all cranked up.
5. You are not required to stay home on weekend nights so the parents can go out--if you do, they owe you huge gifts at all the major holidays including on Grandparents Day.
6. They have their house rules (which you know nothing about)--and you have yours (which are so much more liberal that as soon as they can talk they'll be saying, "But Gramma Di let's me do that!")
7. Some people say that parenthood is the most wonderful experience in their lives--these are people who haven't been elevated to grandparent status.

Congratulations! And ENJOY!
