Babies! Falling from the sky!! - Suffering From Elation
A Survivor's Tale
Babies! Falling from the sky!!
So I'm to become a godmother and an aunt, all in the same year, and to two seperate babies, even!

My lovely girl Amy / tengukun has kindly allowed me to blurt this out here (some may remember my barely-contained excitement a few months back when I first found out but was unable to blurt): A far more subtle woman than I, Amy sees no need for an enormous announcement with fireworks and crap, BUT I DO. She will be a wonderful mother. I won't say more about the name, sex, or due date of her bub (and my godchild!) as I don't believe in spoilers. Heehee.

Given that I have only one brother, the source of the baby who shall bestow Aunt-hood upon me should be fairly obvious. "I'm pregnant," my brother Chris laconically announced tonight before friends, inadvertently stealing Jess's thunder with a grammatical slip. Their baby is due much later than Amy's, so downside is that I'll have to wait for longer for baby goodness, but upside is that I get to torture this one in person.

Kelly declares that I am primed and ready for my new role as 'crazy auntie Tania'. I fear that this status upgrade is merely one more step down the path to spinsterhood.

Chris, who is hoping for a boy, will make a good solid dad, and Jess already works in childcare so she's ahead of the game! I've offered to help them find an apartment up on the coast and will begin my research right after I post this entry.

Mum and I were in Big W (a department store, for those playing overseas) when Chris called to tell her. She was stunned and excited, and from that point on, every shop we went into where people struck up a conversation with her, she felt the need to announce, "I'm going to be a grandmother!" At which point all eyes would turn to me, and I'd frantically wave my arms and yelp, "No, no, it's not my fault!!"

So yeah, massive congrats to Amy and Chris and Jess! You're continuing the human race and ensuring your immortality and stuff! Well done, everyone!

Hmmm I really should make that post. >_>;; ^_^;;

*amused* Your mom and my mom are on the same page. She started buying baby clothes the same afternoon we found out the gender, and SHE already has four grandkids. This is your mom's first, so be prepared for some nuttiness and spoilage, hehe.

Nuttiness and my mum walk hand-in-hand. I reckon a grandchild will be a step up for her: right now she spoils the dog instead. ;D
