On Bubby Births and More

This week my good friend’s daughter gave birth to twin girls! Double Mazel Tov! What a simcha! Also, my niece had a baby girl, and my other niece had a baby boy! Double mazel tov there too! Thank G-d for all these Mazel Tov’s.

Meanwhile, I am  kind of (read: very very) excited about a personal Mazel Tov! – the release of  my book that tells the story of my birth as a Bubby! Five years ago, a Bubby was born; I became a grandmother. Not the first and not the last, and certainly not the only Bubby who was excited to become one (although it sure seems like that, from the way I tend to talk about grandmother-hood!). Nevertheless, I am a Bubby who decided to write about my perceptions, insights and funny stories  vis-a-vis my married children,  grandchildren, and adult children. Those writings —-and more —- evolved into the book, Mazel Tov! It’s a Bubby! – to be released on September 5, 2012, please G-d, in book stores.

And on September 11, the Bubby (that would be me) will be speaking at her good friend’s house at: 171 North Fuller Ave. in Los Angeles – from 7:30 to 9:30 pm. to promote her book, to sign books that people purchase beforehand from stores, and  bring with them, and to have some books on hand for those who want to buy over there (at a 15% discount while supplies last). Refreshments will be served. Please RSVP – by September 6,  if you plan to attend, at my grandmother/baby gear gemach website — at info@lababygear.com. 

What could be interesting about being a Grandmother? Well, to answer that question, one would have had to read the Binah Magazine which chronicled my birth and growth as a grandmother over the past five years.  And now – Mazel Tov! It’s a Bubby!   is a sequential collection of those stories in the order of how I experienced them, as well as many additional stories and topics that have never been published before.

I feel passionate about this topic, and look forward to meeting you all at the book signing, as we  share and explore the joys and oys of being a mother, mother-in-law and grandmother!

Mothers, mothers-in-law, grandmothers, daughters, daughters-in-law are all welcome!

Shabbat Shalom and Shana Tova!


Mazel Tov! It’s a Bubby! (and a book!)

By now, most people who know me, are aware that I am releasing a book (Mazel Tov! It’s a Bubby! – with Israel Bookshop Publications; Sept 5, 2012), please G-d. The past few years of conceiving the idea, writing, editing, submitting, negotiating and polishing my book has been quite an exhilarating journey. And the fact that from the time I was notified that my book will be published until the actual release is a total of nine months, is only one of the reasons that this experience is similar to having a baby.

At this time, to use the pregnancy analogy — I am in my third trimester, ninth month and I am feeling the gamut of emotions. Excited (it is thank G-d a huge accomplishment), nervous (what if there are mistakes….), impatient anticipation (feeling like this pregnancy is dragging), gratitude (to G-d for bringing me to this stage), and many other feelings.

I look forward to keeping you all posted on the developments of my book release. I hope to have please G-d, a book signing event. The location, date, and time will be announced shortly on this blog.

Stay tuned for more.
