    Ok, some know, but others don't so I'll let everyone know now....

    I'M GOING TO BE A GRANDMA TO TWINS!!!!!

    I'll be leaving sometime next month so I can be with the oldest when the babies are born. Don't know WHEN I will be going, all depends on ticket prices and when she calls me and tells me what doc says.
    No, we don't know what the babies are, only that they are identical and are REALLY cute! She sent me 4D pics of them and they sure are cuties!!

    So, now everyone knows........
    For those of you who have kept my secret, you can breathe easy now. :) :)

    ***edit to add*** don't worry about IRR or swaps that I am in. My doll quilt will be out before I leave and I'll be back in time for the next IRR round, so no one will be left in the lurch.

    Well, it's not my news to share, but I bet all my baby talk was eating you up inside. Twins are such big news, I don't know how you managed to keep your lips sealed for this many months!

    She is due on Jan 8th, but I told her anytime after Dec 15th would be good. Donny needs to finish his exams and his last one is the 15th.
    I'm looking at tickets and I think I'm going to grab the cheapest one I can find. Not sure if I'll fly straight in to her, or maybe take a detour and visit some southern friends. His mom is adimant that she WILL be there for the birth. Well, hold on lady...that's MY baby giving births to babies....it's YOUR baby that just helped to make them, so I get first dibs!!!

    It wasn't easy, but we needed to make sure that all was fine. I didn't want to say anything and then something happen.

    I'm bigger than she is. I can take her. She's a bit on the ditzy side too, so I think if I yell...SHINY!...she'll turn and run towards something shiny and I'm home free! lol

    Oh, I know...but I'm staying longer than she is!! lmao
    I know, a bit petty, but I have been the one there for these kids, not her. She's a real piece of work...couldn't even show up for the wedding, then cried about it afterwards because the rest of the family was there. Her fault...oh well......

    I'M GOING TO BE A GRANDMA!! LOL

    Terri - heartfelt congratulations to all concerned. You must be beside yourself - 2 babies. How exciting is that!

    Know all too well about the pesky in-laws. My MIL didn't come to the wedding because "she couldn't watch losing her son." Bad news lady, you done lost him long before we got hitched. Then when I finally met the woman, she was half in the bag and she made me promise that I would let her be in attendance at the birth of her grandchild. THAT was an easy promise to make since we had no intention of having any kids.

    We do get along well by now, MIL and I.
