Several weeks ago I made a cryptic plea for prayers due to a circumstance in our lives. Our “Easter” was actually 1 week after the real date, we often do our Holidays on any day BUT the real Holiday. We were all gathered when Diva and CarGuy announced, through Big Sister and Brother bandanas on their doggos, that they are expecting.
The prayers were due to the fact she was having a lot of nausea and not keeping food down. A week later she ended up in the ER due to sharp abdominal pain and nausea. Our fear was miscarriage, as I had one in between the girls. And she was about the same stage as I when we lost the baby. But all was well, heart beat was strong and the pain was due to a fibroid they discovered. They will monitor it, but it shouldn’t be an issue.
So in November 2021 I will become Gee! Since finding out I have gone back and forth about what I will be called. My girls started out calling our moms Mimi, but then switched to Grandma. I was thinking Mimi, but it just wasn’t capturing my heart. This past weekend we hosted a Graduation Party for Diva on Saturday and then Mother’s Day brunch on Sunday. While discussing the issue on Sunday, CarGuy said his mom wasn’t sure if she wanted to be Mimi or something else. I said she could have Mimi, no problem. My sister suggested Gigi, but that’s reserved for Great Grandmas in my mind. Then she said, how about G? Perfect! So I will take Gee, or whatever the babe wants to call me! What are you called?
Now the sewing and knitting will begin! First item, this hat is getting made! She’s a huge Mandalorian fan. I need to re-work the pattern for worsted weight. And then baby’s quilt will definitely be this pattern. I made this one in 2020 for our cousins’ grand baby.
So now the secret’s out, and I can shout it from the roof tops! I’m going to be a Gee!!!!
