How I found out I was going to be a grandmother

Way back in January I was sitting in a movie theatre waiting for Les Miserable to start when my cell phone rang. I quickly stopped the ringing and checked to see who it was. It was my youngest son. He rarely calls. My first thought was that something was wrong, so I quickly sent him a text. This was our conversation:

I immediately started to cry, and the movie hadn't even started. :-) I quickly sent off a few more texts - spelling, grammar mistakes and all -

So, that was a Tuesday.

Four days later, on a Saturday night, at 6:51 in the evening, I get this text from my oldest son


It was a little odd for them to be going out to our place, about a 40 minute drive from their place, at that time of night, especially on the snowy night that it was, but we had friends visiting for the weekend that they wanted to see and probably wouldn't get to see if they didn't come then so I didn't think too much about it. They came and we had a nice little visit. Just before they left my son got his wife's purse and took something out of it and presented it to me saying that it was the real reason the came to visit. This is what he handed me


Needless to say I was in tears again and the grin that I had started wearing Tuesday got a little bigger. Both my boys were going to be daddies!

Both couples swore us to secrecy for a while until they saw the doctor and knew more about how far along they were. That prompted me to send the boys this text a few days later


So, that's how I found out I was going to be a grandmother, twice. When they finally saw the doctors and got their due dates all straightened out they were actually due just a little more than a week apart!
