I talked to my dad today. I have been a bad daughter and havent called him since June. Guess he has been a bad dad too since he hasnt called me either...lol. Anyway, during our conversation in which I proudly told him his great-granddaughter was starting school (pre-school), he announces to me that my step-mom just became a new grandmother! Now they have been married for 25 years and dated for 2 years before that so by now one would think that ALL the grandkids would be OUR grandkids not hers and his right? Just like maybe they could combined all us kids by now instead of her kids and his kid. Nope. Its her grandkids and his grandkids. I dont know if she is going to live long enough to see her great grandkids. See...her kids waited much longer to have kids than I did. Her dtrs kids are mid teens and 7. She is 4 years older than I am! This son who just adopted this baby boy...is 2 years younger than me! LOL. Now I dont know if Pat (stepmom) considers my grands her great-grands or not. I thought she did but who knows. Seems awful funny to me that no one called to tell me that my parents just got a new grandchild. I think it is hiliarious that they get a grandchild and a great grandchild in the same summer. All I know is I am eternally grateful I am not taking care of either one! One other really funny thing. My step brother Chris is the one who adopted this baby because his is bipolar. He has been under control completely for many many years but he was terrified to have his own child because he didnt want to pass on the genes because his father was also bipolar. I tried to tell him it didnt always pass, his sister a nurse tried to tell him. Heck it didnt pass in her or her kids. But now he adopts a baby and will have no clue what he is getting....sigh...what can you do? LOL.
