From mum to nana
Added by Anneka
As children we had hints dropped by mum that she hadn't wanted to be a nana too early in life. So as you can imagine I was some what apprehensive telling mum that I, her youngest of four children then aged only 16 was pregnant. And in her then early 40s she would be promoted to nana. At the time mum and Richard had the pub Ye olde black boy down old high Street. Which I lived half n half between there and my dad's. My siblings would visit regularly and so much like any other day the third floor living room would be in undated with family. So from my mums perspective that day started off much like any other. With the one unknown fact that I had actually asked one of my brothers there for moral support/back up. Mum knew us inside and out and soon took in that my then partner was sweating profusely and brothers stammer was more apparent.... And that something was a foot. Mum never one to ignore the elephant in the room asked in only the way mum could "c'mon then what's up, something's up your all acting dodgy". I took a gulp and started to explain but before the words could come out I'm sure mum already knew what I was going so say as the next thing was mum speaking again to say "hang on, Neil go get me a Jameson's". Nothing was said for a while there was only silence, till the rickety creaks of the stairs sounding Neil's return. Once handed the whiskey she gave a wave of the hand followed by "Right I'm ready". " Mum I'm pregnant". Silence again ... as she looked down into the glass but then she downed the whiskey, gently popped the glass of the side table and looked up with the most enormous grin. Jumped up punching the air around her whooping and shouting "I'm gonna be a nana !!! " beaming the whole time. Afterwards we talked of names and hopes for baby. She never once asked me the where's or why fors, she only cared I was happy. I wish at the time I'd told her how much that meant to me, but I think she knew. And every grandchild after the first she was just as happy beaming and sharing the news with every person she met. I don't think I've ever met anyone who loved being a nana as much as mum did. She saw each grandchild and their individual gifts and cherished everyone of them.
