I think I’ve successfully leapfrogged over the hard part of parenting and gone straight for the fun stuff. It hasn’t quite been a week, but Steve and I just love our role as Pops and Nana. We spent all Sunday afternoon with our little Lucy, who is being spoiled from all directions. I think everyone who works in the Financial District of San Francisco has seen Steve’s photos of Lucy at least once, and I immortalized her sweet face on the world-wide web when she was just a few hours old.
It’s funny to me that I’m the first of my generation in my family and first among my peers to become a grandparent – especially since I was never a parent. My brother and two cousins all have children who range in age from teens to twenties. I was the last to marry but I beat them all in becoming a grandparent. Thank you, Lucia Bella!
