Kid Sis #2 had her baby today. First of my siblings to do so.
I know biology and the birds and the bees, but it is still so strange that a being grew inside her stomach. It took me awhile to get used to hearing her talk about the early stages of pregnancy. Then even more time to get used to her growing belly.
But I'm still getting used to the idea of that being being outside of her body and growing as a human. Getting used to the fact that I am an aunt. Getting used to the fact that my mother is a grandmother and father is a grandfather. That I am going to soon start calling her and my parents by different names in order for the kid to understand who I am talking about. Getting used to the fact that Little Sis (who used to have an imaginary friend who was killed in a car crash but was later found to be alive as it was her twin sister who actually died, made up her own language, still cries when you mention the fact that the dog ate her Cabbage Patch kid, stuck hair pins in electrical sockets disrupting my morning cartoon viewing) is now in charge of another human life for at least 18 years.
Also exciting is my track team. Who is doing wonderfully despite some shocking news yesterday and today. But we are survivors and we will persevere despite some losses.
Not quite as exciting -- state testing this Wed-Friday.
