The mother of my grandchildren

img002I will never forget the first time I saw her.

My son pointed her out. “There she is.”

That tall, blonde, gorgeous woman? In an Air Force uniform?

I told him to go for it.

“She’s older than me,” he said.

“Who cares?” I said.

She’s been married to my only child, my boy, for more than twelve years.

She’s the mom to my most precious gifts – my two grandsons.

She’s also my BFF.


Chris and boys (7)

    • Yeah, I’ve tried to be friend, cheerleader, stay out of their business, don’t suggest how to do stuff (unless she asks), don’t visit too often, and always call ahead. It’s pretty darn awesome. I’m not at all like the mothers-in-law I’ve had – oy!
