Stop the presses! It's my granddaughter's birthday today! She is ONE and a more beautiful, more darling, more intelligent, more extraordinary, more perfect child I have never met. Yeah, I'm bragging. That's what a Nana is for. A friend told me that being a grandma is the reward you get for living a long life. I agree. I never thought I'd get all googly-woogly over this whole thing, but it turns out I have a great capacity for googly-woogly-ness. Who knew?
