Back in 2013, I read in the local gossip blogs and magazines that the former Secretary of State and soon to be the presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton, has been asking about her daughter Chelsea Clinton‘s baby plans daily to determine when she will be a grandmother. Chelsea gave the usual daughter’s response (awwhh mom!) but did say she would be making baby plans in 2014.
Well, yet again this year at the most recent Clinton Global Initiative University conference, mother Hillary again put the pressure back on Chelsea (albeit very lightly!) hinting that she would like to know what it’s like to be a grandmother. Of course, Chelsea just seemed to smile with the pressure as mommy dearest anxiously awaits her offspring.
But maybe you are not the daughter of a former President of the U.S. or of the former Secretary of State but are the proud daughter of a beautiful, strong, and intelligent mother whose primary mission in life right now is to become a grandmother. I think it’s really interesting to know that regardless of our worldly or economic status, we as women all share the same pains of a mother who becomes concerned about our baby making responsibilities as soon as the clock strikes 30! Well, Chelsea, welcome to our world. We are the world of childless women with parents who we love but annoy us daily about the next little “chubby cheeks” in the family.
