Shopping for Two

Good morning all.  Today I have a card to share that I made for my fella's eldest son who is now expecting.  It's so sweet and exciting and they also asked me do I want to be called Nannie or Grandma.  I was a bit shocked because at 45 I never expected to be called either ha ha ha, but I like Nannie ha ha ha.
