TGIF This Grandma is Fabulous a Precious Moments Figurine
Around Easter, our daughter Liz & her husband Austin came over to visit for the evening but wanted to talk to us. We couldn’t imagine what was going on, as they never show up during the work week, but we went with it. After some idle chit-chat, they instructed us to shut our eyes, as they had a surprise for us. We did as instructed, and they each placed something into our hands and instructed us to open our eyes. We each saw an Easter Egg, and they excitedly asked us to open them. When we opened the eggs, it included a binky and a note that we were going to be Grandparents and the official due date was November 5, 2018. We were egg-static as well as a bit surprised.
We have enjoyed watching them grow as a couple, but we have also enjoyed hearing our little guys heartbeat when we go to appointments with her. But I think the most magical is when he gets super active of a night and does karate kicks and we are able to feel him move. Each time we are around one another she says, he is doing somersaults so I know he already knows how much I love him. I didn’t know how quickly you become attached to your grandkids, even before they are born, but the one thing I know for sure is that I can’t wait to meet him.
However, we still have about 10 weeks of patiently waiting until he arrives, so in the meantime, I’m doing what every grandma does. I’m shopping for Grandma themed items, shopping for a brand new baby, and helping the parents in any way I can. But today we are going to talk about TGIF-This Grandma is Fabulous!!
I thought it was the perfect first addition to my “Grandma” Collection because as a young girl, I’ve always loved Precious Moments. Living in Missouri I’ve been lucky enough to even visit the Precious Moments Chapel in Carthage, MO. It was absolutely fabulous and I can’t wait to go back and visit as an adult because I know I would appreciate it even more now. But I digress, let’s talk about TGIF.
This figurine features a stylish, fun, and practical grandma in a “hip” outfit, ready for her next exciting adventure with her favorite grandchildren. Perfect for grandmas who seem to stay forever young, because I for one won’t ever get too old, and of course I will stay fabulous! She is meticulously hand sculpted in fine bisque porcelain and expertly hand painted and is approximately 5.25 inches high. She is now on my coffee bar (which was Brady’s Grandma’s cabinet) right by my Nana’s Cream & Sugar dishes. So when our little guy finally arrives, he will learn all about having coffee with “Nana”, and to remember just how special he is just like every Precious Moments character.
So join me as I celebrate my first Grandparents Day (on Sunday, September 9, 2018) and order your own grandparents something special from Precious Moments. They are adorable, affordable, and a must-have for all glamorous grandmas like myself!
