Week 46 List  
3. Make a list of things that would be in your dream home

Really bad cell phone reception. (dream home, remember. I don't need to consider the practicalities, but how nice for work not to be able bother me when I'm not scheduled?)

Freezer filled with ice cream.

A doggie door that's big enough for a sneaker-wearing mini to get through.

Large garden tub because bubble baths are just what the doctor ordered.

Enough bedrooms to accommodate someone's herd of children.

... and grandchildren.

What?

Oh, I get it...planning ahead since Dimples is getting married and Rory may as well be...

I, um ... I'm referring to the near future, actually.

I just got a call from Anraí. Laine's pregnant.

And this is how you tell me?

Wait, she's pregnant? How far along? She's what...forty-three? Does she have an OB that specializes in high risk pregnancies? Has she started prenatal care yet? I really hope she's been taking her folate. What's her EDD?

Oh and um, congrats, Granddad?

I ah, think he said she's about two months along. Um ... I'm still absorbing the fact that I'm going to be a grandfather, so I'm afraid any technical details must have bounced off me. Anraí did say they're both doing well, though.

Thank you, love. I'm going to be a little boggled for a while.

Boggled? Come on, you have to have figured out the birds and the bees by now. Is it really that boggling that they'd end up pregnant?

You are adorable though.

It's more the emotional impact, I think. I keep repeating the word "Grandda" over and over in my head.

Grandda...you really are cute. I'm also very happy for you and them.

Thank you, sweet. Anraí still sounds giddy, and he's had longer to get used to the idea than I have.

Well, he is the one who's going to be a father. Besides, let him enjoy it now. Once that kid is born...I hope he and Laine are getting all the sleep they can now. That glazed, near-zombie look anyone with an infant has always warms my cold. cold heart when they come into the ER.
