We had an amazing weekend. Totally. Crazy. Wild. Amazing. It all started on thursday night, when some company was going to stay at our house. Thursday night was fine. . .but then friday came. Wow. So, we peacefully eat our dinner, everything going fine. Then we sit in the livingroom and talk. And, the phone rings. So, dad grabs the phone, and answers it. He held it away from his ear, took a deep breath and said seven words. Seven small words. And pandemonium broke loose. Let me just give you a little peek (or should I say peak?) into our lives at that very moment.
(setting: our livingroom)
Mom: Blah blah bla! Blah!
Dad: Blah blahh bla blah. ..
Company: Blah! Blah bla.
Phone: Ring. . .Ring!
Dad(picks up phone): Hello. . .
(mom looks at dad and mouths “who is it”)
Dad: Is she okay? Like, right NOW! Ooooh-Kay!
Mom: What is it honey???
Dad(these are the seven words. ..hold on!) Your sister. . .is having the baby. NOW.
Mom(shocked. . .in a daze): Wha. . .where is she?!? Is she in the hospital?
Dad: No. . .shes at your moms house. . .and. . .and. .
Mom: (going crazy) What!!! Shes having the baby NOW!?!?! Shes at MOMS!?!? Ok, we can do this *deep breath* give me the phone.
(dad hands mom the phone) Mom: Ok, so where is she. . .ok, how far along is she? Hmmm. . .ok, you need to do this. . .
Dad @ company: You wanna birth a baby tonight? Laughs
Company: Uh. . ha ha (I forget what else was said. . .)
(I run to tell my sister, who ADORES babies) Me: The baby’s coming!
Sister: Blank stare
Me: Tia’s baby! Shes having the baby!!!!
(sister jumps up starts yelling “the baby’s coming! Yes yes yesyesyes! Whooo hooo! *half singing half shrieking* shes gonna have curly hair! Oh yeah! Shes gonna be soooooo cute! *shrieks again*)
(dad storms in) Dad @ sister: Your moms on the phone! BE QUIET!
Mom @ no one in particular: Ok, so we need to get a pillow, maybe a robe. .
(I go get the stuff mom, dad and one sister leave for the hospital)
(I relize that mom forgot to bring all the stuff I had packed. . .she left it on the table)
So, we wait. And wait. dad comes home with one of the sisters. Mom is still at the hospital. Like a month before the baby was scheduled to come, my aunt asked my mom to like, be a midwife, or whatever for her. But we didn’t know it would be so soon! The baby came three weeks before schedule. Mom came home at like two thirty in the morning. Our company was there the entire time. Poor guy. He will probably never be the same. So, the following day, we watch their other child, while they are still at the hospital. Then on sunday, the come to pick him up. So, we oooooh and awwwwd over the baby (luckily my mom didn’t go all “cootchi cootchi cooo” in the baby’s face. . .)and pretty soon we realized, we better get hoppin’ or we’re going to be late for our next appointment. But. . .of course! We have to get one LAST look at the sweet lil darlin before we leave, and before you know it we’re late. So, we jump in the car, put the petal to the metal, probably breaking every speeding limit in the book, and WE BURNED RUBBER BAYBEH! Unfortunently , every stoplight decided to take an extra 30 seconds. . .and we got stuck behind every little old man in town. In fact, one person decided to sit in front of the light an EXTRA 10 seconds. . .and it was GREEN! Finally, we pulled up to our destination, and jumped out of the car. We made it in the nick of time. So, I started this week with a new cousin, and a fixed computer. Our guest fixed the computer for us while he was here. . .good thing, cuz I wuz diein with out th computer! So, I guess I better go, cuz mom wants me to do math. Oh well. BYEEE!
