What can I say?

What can I say about my amazing day! Saturday.

Always an honour to see and be present when a baby is was no exception, today was extra special because I was present when my 3rd grandchild was born.
My daughter in law to be gave birth to a healthy boy today, both are back home from hospital this evening.

The circumstances of the baby's birth was amazing.
I was driving my daughter in law to be (son was at work) with their 2 little girls in their seats when the baby decided to come. We were on our way to the hospital, but fell rather short of it. I had to park on the side of the Motorway and help with the birth, when baby was born all was well but of course I then rang the ambulance, and off mum and baby went to hospital to check things out before returning home.
One thing is I kept my cool, for I do that because I was trained that way in one of my professions.

I wonder how many other Nan's or Grandmother's in recent times have been present at a birth of their grandchild with the mother not being their daughter!


  1. Many congratulations!! And way to go Grandma - good thing you were there :) Glad to hear everything went well and that mom and baby are already back at home.

  2. Oh my gosh M this is amazing it is so lucky you have so much training and knew just what to do. I am so proud of you and the new Mom of course.
    Those little girls to have their brother born while they were there is so amazing. The most natural, lovely thing in the world.
    Congratulations and I am so excited for you. I am so happy you were there. Take care and enjoy those Grand children. Congrats to the new parents. The New Mom is very strong I know how scary that would have been. You can send me pics you have my email. HUGS Love G
