TWO babies are coming into our family in September.
Karen and Tyler are due on September 2nd!
McKay and McKenna are due September 15th
Tyler called me about 2 months ago with this very HAPPY news. While I was talking to him I noticed that McKay was trying to call me, too. I thought, 'I'll call McKay back later.' When I hung up from the phone I was in a daze of "my baby is having a baby!" and forgot all about calling McKay back!
So the next morning McKay calls again and said he tried to call me the night before. Oh no, So sorry McKay, I forgot all about you. I rarely forget my sons, but after hearing Tyler's news I totally spaced out on anything else for several hours.
So I began: "So sorry McKay...so what's up?" He said, "We have something to tell you." Didn't I just hear those same words the night before from his brother? My heart jumped, literally, as in take-my-breath-away. Could it be the McKs are having a baby too??
Then he said, "We just wanted to tell you Karen and Tyler are having a baby."
Then he laughs.
"Very funny McKay, I already know that."
Then I thought, well their time will come. Let's just be happy about one baby at a time. Then he said, "We are having a baby, too." "REALLY? SERIOUSLY?"
I felt like I was in the middle of a dream.
2 grandchildren due just 2 weeks apart!
Karen and McKenna will both be WONDERFUL mothers.
I am so so thankful for them.
Something tells me these babies are going to be best friends...just like their fathers.
P.S. And no, my boys calling me with the news at the very exact time, was not planned by them.
Just a coincidence.
But a sweet one I will always remember.
