Middle of the week chit chat

Sorry I have been so quiet lately. The news of my daughter being pregnant has taken a few days to sink in, and between that and work I just haven't felt much like blogging. I am trying hard for my daughter to be happy and I know once the baby grows enough to start moving and kicking I will be all involved and wanting to buy things and counting the weeks with her. Right now it is more of a hassle, just getting past the telling the parents stage (her boyfriend told his parents Father's Day) and of course they were thrilled as I expected they would be. This is there first grandchild, so emotions are going to run high. As I predicted his mom is already over excited and asking Rebecca what she needs and making plans to buy things.
I am not worrying about that end of it right now, but more concerned as to how they are going to pay for the medical end of it. She is already starting to show which worries me a bit. I am thinking she might be farther along than she thinks she is, or that there is twins. Her boyfriend is a twin (fraternal), so that incerease the chance of her having them. Because she is already popped out (she looks at lest 3-4 months already), she is not going to get to work as a dancer many more weeks. This is her extra income, so that worries me.

On the plus side she did go to social services today and apply for medicaid which should be automatic since she is pregnant. She is not counting the dads income since they aren't married and I know hers alone is only a little over a thousand a month.
Once all the paper work for that is approved she can get a list of DR in our area and get in for her first appointment.

Anyway things will find a way of working out. They always do. In the mean time I have dub the baby Tadpole...After all I think its dad is a toad ha ha

It sounds like you have a lot on your plate right now, it's difficult sometimes to be positive when your heart says something else isn't it. I hope everything goes well for your daughter and that she has a safe and healthy uncomplicated pregnancy. i'm sure that no matter what when the time comes and baby arrives he/she will be loved and cared for by all the family. Sending you hugs and warmest wishes xXx

I only can wish the two the best in what every happens.
I know life at times can be expensive but it all comes out in the wash.

Coffee is on.

Wishing your daughter and her bf luck and happiness!

I was terrified when my oldest son announced that he and Karen were going to be parents....

But now, 4 grankids later, I'm calm as a kitten...Everything is fine...

That, or either I'm senile and/or delusional.


What are you going to have the Baby call you?

Kristen and David call me MawMaw.
Envy calls me Grandma.
Ashton can't talk yet.

I called my Grandmothers MeMaw and Nanny.

My sons and my grandkids call my Mom *G-Maw*

Let's see...

Nana and Granny are also an option.


I'm messin' with you, Patty...

I hope that your daughter has an uneventful pregnancy and that little Tadpole is healthy and sound.

Also just to allay your fears, the dad/frog being a fraternal twin doesnt increase your daughter's chances of conceiving twins as she's the one who has to have the genetic inclination to double ovulate.
