December 9, 2008, was not just any other day. It was the day we would finally bring Morgan Kate, our first grandchild, home from the hospital after 107 days in the NICU! It would be the day that Heather and Travis would begin their journey as a little family. It would be the day that Loitton and I would begin our journey as grandparents.
What a journey it has been so far and we are only beginning. There is so much about being a grandparent that made being a parent worthwhile. As a parent there were days where you felt like all you did was say "no, no, no". There were days where you felt like the enemy. There were those days were you felt like your children hated you because you had to enforce the rules, you had to insist on them having manners, you had to insist they listen and behave. You were the one who demanded that they finish their homework, that they help with the dishes, clean up their rooms, and the list goes on and on. HOWEVER, so far as a grandparent I am having fun and loving it! Such a nice reward for sticking it out as a parent :)
Morgan Katherine Callahan - I love you to the moon and back and I am so proud of the progress you have made in the 2 shorts years since we brought you home.
