Unfortunately, society pushes and pressures a women to have this view. Some don't take it as seriously as others, but to the ones that do, it's simply torture at times. She is going to feel older if she doesn't let it go. It's too much pressure and you can't turn back the clock.

Hoping she gets the baby crib accessories done. Let us know if she does! You might want to look around for an alternative for your DIL - somewhere - Babies R Us, etc. They have some pretty stuff! I was at the one in Austin a few months ago! I love that store!!!

She's set on the fabrics she's picked out and bought already. I'm sure her mom will get it done - I just hope it sooner rather than later.

That's great! After it's finished and all in place her daughter should put her hand, dramatically, on her tummy, the other arm around her mother and say, "Thank you so much, Granny! We appreciate it!"

LOL!

LOL.....her family calls her the nazi whatever - - clothes nazi (complaining about someone's clothes) or the food nazi (telling someone they can't have dessert) or the planning nazi (telling everyone what they are going to do)....get the picture?

So - it was brought up she could be called the Gra-nazi which I thought was going to stick. I suggested Grazie and she loved it. I didn't think she would at all.
