Jordan has a video game called 'Harvest Moon'. It's a pretty cool game as it allows you to get a feel for what it is like to own a farm, have chores, work for money, etc. Jordan absolutely LOVES this game. Well, one of the challenges in this game is that you have to try to get 'Cliff' to marry you. You have to offer him rings, chocolates, and many other gifts to woo him (yeah, it's a little backwards). Jordan has been trying, for months, to get Cliff to marry her and he finally said 'YES'.
I wish I could begin to describe the excitement on this childs face as she told me she was getting married. Her voice squealed in delight as she made the announcement to anyone and everyone who would listen. She was absolutely 'giddy' and I am not even exaggerating. I couldn't decide if I was happy for her or disturbed because this seemed to be the highlight of her year.
The other day, as I came through the door after work, I was greeted by Jordan who was beaming with excitement:
J- "Guess What!"
Me- "What, sweetie?"
(thinking she had learned something new while schooling and couldn't wait to share it with me)
J- "I had a baby!"
Not exactly what I expected, but close.
