I've written about our delight at the news we'll have a new grandchild next year, my son and girlfriend are expecting. The told us the news on Friday night having been in the UK for Christmas and New Year it was the first time we'd met her although they have been together 18mths and have bought an apartment together abroad where they live an work.
Well it was such a suprise and we were all beaming and happy about the news but they were busy packing and getting an early flight home on Saturday morning so we hardly had time to express our joy let alone ask questions and as we only just met I didn't feel I could ask too many questions about how things were going with the pregnancy etc.. we are strangers to her after all.
She is such a nice girl and they are obviously so in love but now I feel like I maybe made her feel that it wasn't that big a deal her being pregnant, she did say 'another grandchild on the way', (we have 7 already) but of course its a big deal , and I need to convey my feelings to her and my son..
So Grans do you think I should write to her or to both of them and what should I say? I'm not good at expressing my emotions I'm afraid although I did blub a little when we hugged at the airport . I'd be grateful for any input because I feel like I let them down .
