The obvious consequence of the uh-oh moment

... was confirmed today.

It's been 35 days and it seemed like the perfect time to take Phoebe for an ultrasound. We were hoping that there'd be fewer cuddly balls of spotted fun to grandparent this time, but that isn't to be. We saw 6 of 'em floating around in my girl's tummy. Hoping there are no more.

The hubs all but panicked, while I was secretly thrilled that I would be able to hold a few more of those delightful young'uns so soon. This time, though, I'll manage things better. Cherish my moments with 'em instead of turning into a shrieking banshee like I did a few months ago.

When I broke the news to the good lady who runs the pet products shop that we frequent, she couldn't wrap her head around the idea! It tickled her funny and we were both giggling at the prospect like tweens :)

In related news, a family solicited Mojo's puppy-making skills for their 2.5-year-old Dal named Lucky. She was a pampered brat, but I didn't mind Mojo passing on some of his baby-paste (Thank you, writers of 18 to Life!) to her because she was so fine-looking. She had perfectly spotted ears! Their progeny would be quite sought after. And, we get to keep one of our choice!

So all 1.7 of you people who happen to pass by this space every few days, pull up your sleeves, get the megaphones out and get prepared to yell at every passerby and demand that they take away my puppies by the end of January 2012. Go on, be good now.

Yessss... That's going to be my task as soon as I set my eyes on the lovely cuddly balls :D

I loved this post. It's hilarious. And somehow it reminded me of Jane Austen. Kudos to you. And good luck with the next set.

simplypallu said...

Awww, thank you for your kind words. Would you visit when the next set is here? It'll be a photo-clicking-op for you. What say?
And, I *try* to be funny. Yet, poor Jane Austen might be turning in her grave ;-)

Oh come on! I have already offered a detailed explanation to Kay & SB for my downvote at ihm.

So, stop making assumtions, go & ask them.

I didn't comment at ihm's forum becoz I dislike her.

So, you can remove my comment now.

JAS A: So you don't like IHM but you still go over and read her? Why? And you thought this was the appropriate way to convey your feelings? Also, you didn't need to post this comment at all, because I never said anything about you or anyone else who makes an effort to explain their stand and their logic behind a disagreement. It's silly when people keep downvoting comments that are supportive towards another person and not derogatory towards anyone, without offering a reason--now, that behavior seems trollish. If you have commented, even in disagreement, it's all good!
