Grand-Fabulous-Baby On the Way Rules


My daughter-in-law will be giving birth to my first grand-fabulous-baby any day now. Since Cory and Jamie live about two hours away from both Grand-Fabulous-Mother Laurie (me) and Grand-Fabulous-Mother Lisa (Jamie's mom), we have had to make a few rules.
  • Because of caller ID, the first words we hear after answering any calls from Jamie's cell phone, Cory's cell phone or Cory and Jamie's house must be "Not yet."
  • If Grand-Fabulous-Mother Laurie is out and about with friends, she must, at all times, have a driver on standby ready, willing and able to drive her to Houston on a moment's notice in the likely event that she is more than halfway through her second margarita.
  • Grand-Fabulous-Mother Lisa has agreed to indulge in no more than two gin and tonics in any given evening while lounging by her new Grand-Fabulous-Pool.
That's it. Just your normal everyday Grand-Fabulous-Mother rules. Edina and Patsy would be proud.

You suppose alcohol fumes bother a baby much?

Be careful when you make that trip into Houston!

YEAH!!!!!!!

Can't wait for pictures.

When are you GRM's going just camp out with the parents to be?

Laurie said...

Susan - That would be a wonderful luxury if it was possible.

Anything is possible, its just a question of priorities, but I suppose unemployed grand-fabulous-mothers is not such a good thing for a new grand-fabulous-baby.

You guys could alternate weekends?

Susan - Priorities?
