Thank you guys for your happy comments. I have two granddaughters, 8 & 10, but this is the first time one of my own children will be having a baby. Just the thought of my son being a daddy is too much! They're so excited.

Congrats Patty :)  I'm so happy for you!!!  smilewinkgrin smilewinkgrin smilewinkgrin

okie,  My son is the only grandchild (there are 8 of them) that carries my husband's and his family's last name so needless to say he is a very spoiled child.  I think I do a pretty good job of keeping him grounded (down to earth, not punished - couldn't think of another word to use) though, he is a great kid :)
