    Congratulations! My best friend will become a grandmother for the first time in July...daughter having a baby and daughter-in-law having twins. Babies are due 3 weeks apart! Biggest problem - the showers. Several guests will have to travel 2 - 3 hours and she doesn't know if the showers should be combined or not. Thoughts anyone?

    Yes, they live close- within 1 1/2 hours anyway. These two are due almost exactly a month apart. We're having the same issue with planning baby showers.
    Someone had suggested a combined shower, but we decided against it...purchasing 2 shower gifts at a time may be a hardship for some guests. We've decided to have ours a month apart....but there's also the tricky part of planning the 2nd DD's far enough ahead that 1st DD can travel & attend.

    Oh, being a grandmother is so wonderful. Enjoy. I would drop by just to hold my grandaughter. She was so cute and cuddly, and smelled so good. I was so delighted to have my other daughter move in with her newborn. We practiced the brain development stuff on him.

    Beezus do the "new" babies live close to each other?!? That will be nice to have a playmate so close in age. I have a cousin that is close to my age, so fun to always have a "friend."

    CONGRATS!!!

    Congratulations!!!!

    There's nothing like being a grandmother. It's even better than being a mom. Back when I was a young mom I was pinching pennies, now that the kids are out of the house there's new uncommitted money and you can buy as you like for those grandbabies. Both my kid's kids have complete libraries already!

    It's even sweeter when one of the grand's looks like one of your kids. My son's son is a little clone of him, its like reliving some of the very best days of your life but you get to sleep all night!!! :)
