ANOTHER Baby on The Way!

I always knew I wanted to be a mother, so I wasn't even a little surprised that I gave birth to four of the most beautiful and intelligent beings on the planet (I know I sound prejudiced but I'm just being honest).

Though I never thought far into the future about being a grandmother, sooner than I might have imagined, I became one, again and again and again. I now have TEN grandchildren and TWO great grandchildren.

Just recently I discovered our family would be expanding AGAIN with ANOTHER great grandchild, and as I sat in the living room yesterday that belongs to one of my granddaughters (the granddaughter who is pregnant), along with her sister and one of my daughters, the conversation naturally veered toward pregnancy.

At one point, my daughter and my non-pregnant granddaughter discussed their desire to have a baby. They both said they wanted to get pregnant within the next year! We're going to need an embassy to hold all of us pretty soon.

As I look at my staggeringly deflated monetary resources, I've decided I'm going to have to come up with more creative gifts. I generally crochet an afghan for each new baby. I'm also trying to crochet hats and scarves for the younger grandchildren before winter. My fingers are going into overdrive!

Fortunately, my daughter owns a baby and children consignment boutique (they also sell wedding gowns) where clothes are in near-perfect condition and cost only a fraction of the original price. Guess where I'll be buying my baby items – Briella's Boutique in Savoy, Illinois!

But now I'm concerned about where we can meet for celebrations. Anybody know of an embassy I can rent for cheap?
