Holy crapola! I just got a call I never thought I would get...my brother and his wife are expecting! I'm going to be an aunt! My brother is not known to be warm and fuzzy - he seems to enjoy his nephews but seems to enjoy giving them back even more. He's fastidious in terms of his clothing, his car, his house. And they are having a baby! He is in for such a game changer and I can hardly wait to see this happen.
Of course no sooner had I gotten off the phone with him than P had jammed a kernel of corn up his nose. I had to call back to share the joys of parenthood with him. After successfully removing the corn with tweezers...of course. Surgery before gloating, always.
