Another One!


So, on my 30th Anniversary, my oldest son and his wife and kids come over the house. This is the son that has the three girls (a 3 year old and 1 year old twins). They hand me a card. I open it up and read it. At the bottom it is signed, Love RickyII, Heather, Cassidy, Laurie, Deanna, and BABY # 4!!!! At first I thought this was an April Fool's Day joke, because my anniversary is April 1st. But my daughter-in-law shows me the paperwork for her to get her 1st ultra sound done and I realize that this is not a joke. My first thought is, "Are you out of your $#!$#%@# mind!!! Then fear sets in as I think, "Oh no, what if it's another set of twins or something"!!! Then when the shock starts wearing off, I congradulate them all the while thinking, "this is going to be 4 kids under 4 years old". She is due in November. Cassidy will be 4 December 30th and the twins will be 2 on December 28th. This will be my 6th grandchild before I even reach 50 years old on December 1st. I might as well put a sign up in front of the house that reads . . . Grandma's Day Care Center. Anyways, she finds out on April 14th if there is more than one baby in there this time. For their sake, I hope it's just one and I hope that it is the boy that my son is praying for. But in my nightmarish thoughts I keep thinking, it will probably be triplets this time and all girls!!!!

I was thinking quintuplets! Still, a Diaper Genie will come in handy for making all those diaper sausages for the landfill. Congrats!

What!? I can't believe they're expecting #4! I still can't imagine Ricky having any kids at all...let alone 3 girls. I still imagine him as an annoying teenager threatening to turn the power off and hit me and Sheila with his nunchuks during sleepovers. Congratulations!
