Going To The Chapel

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.

Your post made me laugh. Last summer the 3, 5 and 8 year old were all having babies OUTSIDE and walking around singing praises to the Lord!!!!! Being the nana of eight (soon to be 9) keeps me happy. Nana C

I not sure if congratulations is what I should tell you, grandma. The games that they think of. They are really interesting, I think. But, at least it is a game and not really happening. Talk to you later, love Tanya

Just think of it like this...she is eager to fulfill the ultimate position in life that God has laid out before her. And leave it to my daughter to ask THOSE kind of questions! Why stop there...what's her name?
