Strike Up the Band!!!

I know today is Thursday and I should be putting out the trash, but I really have a good excuse. My baby daughter went to the OB/GYN today and she is expecting her first child July 4th! Let me tell y'all I am over the moon. I'll make sure there are fireworks, a marching band and a parade that day for sure. She's been making me sit on this news for a few weeks now until after her first doctor's visit, but she turned me loose today. I'm laughing and crying while typing because I know how much she's wanted a baby. She and Robman married in 2002 in Vegas(that is a post in itself-think Elvis). I think they had just about given up on getting pregnant but she touched the magic Dolly Mama. The Dolly Mama is a furniture dolly we use at shows. So far, three young women(counting Jenn) who went with us to Warrenton during setup and pushed that dolly got pregnant within a few weeks. Coincidence? I think not. Maybe I can get a side business going by renting that thing out. I'll try not to bore you to tears with this wonderful news, but I will be giving updates after her doctor visits. And you can't imagine the shower I'm already planning in my head. I may give myself a grandmother's shower while I'm at it. Ooo, I'm getting goosebumps thinking about it. I promise I'll do a late trash day post by the weekend and please forgive me for being otherwise distracted!

congratulations- such excitement! Took me back to expecting my baby Haleigh (she's 14 now)- I found out the 2nd week of November 1994 that I was pregnant (had been married 5 years), missed my only Thanksgiving meal at Mom's(besides when I lived in France) because I was sleeping in the guest room (morning sickness)- she was due 7/4- I walked around all day that day through parades and festivals waiting to go into labor. People would aks- when are you due? TODAY ANY MINUTE! The Dr. finally decided to induce me on 7/15. Guess what? She came on her own 7/14- the FRENCH national holiday. Since her Momma was a French teacher, I think she just got a lil confused on which national holiday to appear. But such a blessing...I am so excited for you...and such a great blog too. For my first time here, I already have a bond. I'll be back :)
