A Grandparent is Born

As my friends and I have our first children, our parents are reveling in the joys of Grandparenthood.  We watch as our kids receive the uninterupted attention and outrageous gifts that we never would have dreamed of — and our parents love ever minute of it.

So if the birth of the new baby also creates a new Grandma, Nana, Grandpa, or Poppop…then celebrate them too!
