How We Celebrated a Twelve Year Old’s Birthday

January 6, 2016

Written by Anna White


I can’t believe that 12 years ago today I was spending my morning in a hospital waiting for my first grandchild to be born. We already knew we were having a boy and we’re looking forward to this day for a long time. We had hoped for a normal delivery, but our little guy didn’t want to come and after two weeks past the due date, the doctor agreed to a c-section. So January 6th we were welcoming a new baby into the world. We had had it all worked out that I would be in the delivery room and was afraid that the doctor wouldn’t allow me in on a c-section delivery, but who was I kidding, my daughter wasn’t taken no for an answer. She was nineteen, her first child and scared to death and it didn’t matter that her husband would be with her, she wanted her mom too. Thank God I was able to go in and see the miraculous birth of my first grandchild.

I always thought giving birth was great, but getting to be on the other side of the screen was the most awesome experience I have ever had. Fast forward to today where we are celebrating that handsome baby boy turning 12 and I have to ask myself where has the time gone? I can’t wait for Saturday when he gets a surprise birthday party at his favorite restaurant that his Nana took him to on our first lunch date after we moved back to Tallahassee in October (pic above is from that day). He loves hot wings and come Saturday, he will get to eat as many as he wants.
