Did I Mention....

that I am now a mother-in-law? At the ripe old age of 33 folks.















My Stepson came back after Christmas and was supposed to be bringing his fiance. Well, instead he showed up with his WIFE! I'm happy for the newlyweds and pray for their continued love, devotion, and understanding of each other.

But could you just wait to have kids until I'm at least old enough to actually have a grandchild? Like at least another 7 years. A 40-year old grandmother can be a hot grandma, but any younger and it's just "huh?"

I'm really not above begging.

Really.

Really, really...

Congrats! And oh, I just cannot imagine having a married child. Or a grand child. I can't picture it yet! I don't want to picture it...

Shelby said...

I just had to giggle... courtesy of my stepdaughter I became I grandma at 34 -- my own youngest child was only 3!

Brandy said...

I'm 32 and a grandma...or a mimi, but the same thing. Of course, it was my stepdaughter but still...mimi it is.

I want to hear more about this surprise wife!

My step daughter made me a step grandmother at 29. I don't even want to hear it!

Congratulations :)

Congrats! You know, it is entirely possible that you could be a grandma at 34. Better a young grandma than an old one. :)

Blissful Babe said...

Daaamn, boy is foooiiiiiinnee!!! (you have to say it just like that, too, or it just won't work. I'm just sayin')

You'll be a rockin' MIL and a rockin' GMA!!!

ROCK ON!!!

Michaela said...

Congrats!! What a cute couple :) You'll be an awesome MIL!!!

Deanna said...

They are a cute couple. You are WAY too young to be a mother-in-law. There has to be a cuter title. If grandmothers can give themselves cuter titles, surely we can find you one? Thinking... Thinking... I'll think of something!

I have to return the favor Carrie...you were digging my brother and I have to say that your stepson is a hottie himself!

Holy cow ~ a MIL?!?!? I would have killed him right then and there. ;)

Aubrey said...

But yeah. I hear ya on the grandma front. I am trying to convince my kids that they DON'T want kids. Ever. LOL

annaliese said...

wow! congrats! and I thought I was way to young to have my step-daughter accepting a promise ring from her boyfriend at Christmas! ha! you totally have me beat!!!! young grams rule!!!

Holy moly! A few years ago, when I was 42, I met a gal (who was maybe 20) and she had a baby, and she mentioned something about her dad turning 42, and I flipped and thought OMG, a grandparent at 42? At 42, my kids were 10 and 8 yrs old!

And now I read this: one can be a grandparent in their 30s!!! through the magic of step-parenting. Wow.

Life never ceases to amaze me (and I hope you get your wish to not be a granny until you're 40)!

Annikke said...

They look like a happy couple..... now... minus the children (I AM TOTALLY KIDDING!!) Kids are a pure joy and grandkids are too (or so I hear)! Hee hee

Juls said...

OH My! How exciting....way more exciting than the news I was going to share with you...which is I used your tutorial to make a button for my blog. I even gave you a plug...(not that I have a million readers or even 2 who are consistent...) Just wanted to say THANKS!

Mrs. Bridget G. said...

OOhhh I am so with you there. My stepsons and I are close in age (my husband is older than i am) and if they got married and had children i'd be a 25yr old grandmother!!!

I'd pass out!

mydogumentary said...

WOW! Congrats! I'm sure that's sort of weird! But you can be an extra hot grandma this young! :)

Lula! said...

I refuse to call you granny...but still...if that does happen anytime within the next few years, just keep on wearing those fab blue glasses...stay hardcore...you'll be the rockingest granny there ever was.

Carol @SheLives said...

Amy @ Living Locurto said...
