What is this...thing??!!


I have to admit, I wasn't ready to be an aunt...so you can say I was an unexpectant aunt. Thoughts flew around my head when I first heard the news last June. I was making the solo drive to Las Vegas from Burbank. It was hot and dry on a bright sunny day. Very little traffic around as I was on the phone with my sister in Spokane..."yes...blah-blah, blah-blah sister is pregnant"...[echo] [echo] [echo]...I thought I had entered the twilight zone.

I was in a daze for several days. I'm going to be an aunt...I'm going to be an aunt. Sort of like Dorothy chanting "There's no place like home. There's no place like home." (I think I took the news the hardest ;)

Then on the most perfect day in Buffalo, NY, in a house atop a hill of lush green, grass surrounded by fields of corn and cows grazing by...low and behold I held my nephew for the first time. That experience was sort of like...holding a...a living thing. A being. A little, moving, breathing, cuddly human being--and that feeling was neat. I have to admit, it was love at first sight.
