The young family sat around the table, chocolate  cupcakes displayed before them begging for a bite. Excited giggles crescendoed into whoops as mouthfuls of chocolaty goodness unearthed pastel-colored m&ms.

Pink and purple candies spilled from the center of each small cake, revealing months of suspense.

“It’s a girl!”

My daughter and her family learned they are having their third girl! Our grandson sat smiling in shocked wonder.

Another sister?!

As a teacher of sixth graders, ma special place is my classroom; my home-away-from-home. My first home I share with my husband, our dog Quincy, two cats, and my tortoise friend, Misha. I also have been blessed with a horse named Arjay. We have three adult children and five grandchildren, the joy of our lives. Life is good. I am an equestrian, a writer, a reader, a gardener, and I repurpose furniture.

  1. I’ve never seen one of those cakes in person. They look quite cool.

    Wonderful to hear about your upcoming new addition. May everything happen at the right time and may everyone be healthy!
