Big News

So my news is big for me but I want to say that when I first heard about it I was not excited. My daughter Jasmine is going to have a baby. While this is, as I know, an everyday occurrance, Jasmine is not married, 18 and finishing her first year of college. I suppose right not I am just trying to be supportive because I don't think she really has a clue how this will change her life. The young man who is the father is also being supportive and has stepped up to the plate ( they have been together about 2 years)

So I'm torn between a whole lot of worry and some excitement and then trying to balance them together. She's not due until October so there is a lot of time for adjustments but I wanted to share because somedays it seems like the kind of news you share and other days it seems like I shouldn't be telling anyone!


  1. A new baby is always a blessing, but sometimes the timing is a bit awkward. Teen pregnancy is a lot more common now, and is rarely the deep, dark secret it used to be.

    May you all do what you can to make this a happy time for your daughter and the father, as they start being grownups a bit earlier than planned!


  2. I'm sure she appreciates your support. Her life it definitely about to change!

    Congrats Grandma to be. :)

  3. i wish them the best. so glad to hear he is stepping up to the plate...many would not. i am glad you are there to be supportive as well. what is done, is done and there is no turning back now. it will be an interesting journey. smiles.

  4. Best wishes to your daughter, it's a tough time and she'll need a lot of support. I'm glad the baby's dad is stepping up.

    Good luck to Jasmine, and hugs to you.

  5. I'm glad you shared your news. Hugs to you and your daughter!

  6. I'm excited for you. I hope it all works out for the mama and daddy!
