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.
