    It is six weeks before I will be joining your ranks however I am getting a kick of being asked questions about pregnancy when my first was 28 years ago and my last 20 and I can't even remember where I put my glasses two minutes ago.

    you not only consider, but actually purchase and apply a license plate holder that says "World's #1 Nonna" or "Ask Me About My Grandkids" or "My Grandson's Smarter than Your Fifth Grader" (well duh, the kid's a sophomore in high school).

    When Christmas used to be at your house.

    When your husband falls off the fashion train, and you dress alike

    Your bedtime wardrobe resembles Caesar’s

    A night on the town starts with looking for coupons with seniors’ discounts

    Staying out late means missing the evening news but getting home in time for Jeopardy

    When the kids come over and they’re in a moving van.

    You are considering shooting yourself just under the breast but are afraid of hitting your knee!
