I tell this story to a lot of grandparents that I meet at brisses.
At a recent bris, in which I knew one set of grandparents (mother's family) very well for a long time (they have other grandchildren as well) but did not know the grandparents who became "first-timers" with the arrival of this baby, my first encounter with first-time Grandma went as follows.
I was in the private room preparing the baby, when the baby's father's mother walked in.
She promptly announced: "I am the mother-in-law."
To which I said, "You mean you are the grandmother."
And she said, "Me? I'm not the grandmother!" Then she thought about it a second and said, "O Right! I AM the grandmother! I guess I better get used to that."
Don't worry. You will!
