At this point i should give you some family background. My Aunt (the last GIRL in the family) in Ct. is just 11 years older than me and we grew up two houses away from each other. She has always been the ‘big sister’ i never had. To appreciate the next part you have to know that my Aunt loved to sew and make cloths, especially for kids (a bad habit she got from my Mother). My only other cousin, another BOY, was smart and convinced his parents to move to Florida when we were about 5 years old. So he ended up escaping what turned out to be my fate. I still don’t talk to him. Luckily i have survived this trauma and am reasonably normal after spending some of my younger years being dressed in home made clothing and often made to participate in ‘Fashion Shows’. She also made doll cloths and Halloween costumes.
My Aunt got married they had 4 BOYS. Her #1 SON got married and they had 2 BOYS. I got married and we had (hold on here, this is a biggie) 2, yes that is two GIRLS!!!!!!! (No not at the same time). They were the first girls in the family since my Aunt.
To say that the GIRLS were spoiled as kids is an understatement of grand magnitude. As time went on Oldest Daughter got married and had a BOY, and my Aunts #3 SONgot married and had a ….. You guessed it, BOY.
Friday morning we were really slow to get moving. In fact at 9:30 we were just starting breakfast as the phone rang. It was Daughter #1 who was on her way home from the Doctors office and announced we were going to have a …… Get ready….. hold on……. almost there
For those of you who may not realize, the ‘Possum’ you see here now and then lives just down the road. She stopped over Friday afternoon to help me eat some pumpkin pie that Beatrice forced me to eat and i casually mentioned that we finally knew we would be having a GRAND DAUGHTER in July. To get the full effect of her reaction you have to read her blog of today. Possum Lane To say Possum is a GOOD FRIEND is an understatement.
The next big question is “What is her name going to be??????”
