So my IL's are very anxious to be grandparents. They had kids later in life and now that both of their kids are adults in committed relationships, my MIL is looking at her watch, LOL
They live in PA, and we decided it will be well worth the wait to tell them in person when they visit us on October 15.
So today C gets an email from her mom that says:
"Your brother called to tell me that I'm finally a grandma (at last) - they got a puppy."
Note the "at last" - !! In just three short weeks, she's got one heck of a surprise coming!!!
