When you belong to a large family, there always seems to be some milestone or other on the horizon for somebody. It’s usually things like major birthdays (you know, the ones that end in zero) or anniversaries, the birth of a firstborn, etc. Sometimes, it’s a bit more mind-bending.
On Saturday, there was a baby shower for a little one who will soon join her voice to this loud cacophony–this family to which I belong. It’s a huge occasion, really. Because she will be my first great-great niece. I have five brothers and sisters, eighteen nieces and nephews and twenty great-nieces/nephews. But in about eight weeks, the first of the great-great nieces /nephews will be born.
Isn’t it crazy?! It’s really not that odd to think of my mother as a great-great grandma. Or to think of my great-niece being a new momma. And it’s only a little weird to think of my niece becoming a grandma. What’s really, really weird to me is that my brother (my brother!) will be a great-grandpa.
Apart from the familial diversion over the weekend, things are moving along here. Samples were shipped off last week for some magazine work. A few Market samples will be shipped off this week. And then, cross your fingers, maybe there will be some breathing room and time for some thoughtful posts.For now, click over to MakeItCoats for my free rectangular pillow pattern in Kaffe prints.
