My 31 y/o son and his wife are expecting my first grandchild, a boy, at the end of October. Though I am happy for them and happy about the baby, I am just not excited about being a grandma. Grandma's are old, bake cookes, knit and sit in rocking chairs, right? I don't even cook, and like to go out dancing, to occasional rock concerts and stay out late. I feel like when this baby is born, I will be OLD! How do I become more excited about the arrival of this grandchild? This is really bothering me, especially when anyone calls me Grandma. I am even dreading the baby shower, and having everyone expect me to be all excited about being a grandmother when I am not.
