I found out today that My son Michael's 17 yr old half sister is 6 months pregnant (it is posted on FB so obviously not meant to be a secret). I sent him a text saying "congrats, your going to be an uncle" and I got back "what?!!!"
He called me about 5 minutes later wondering which one of my girls were pregnant and I had to explain to him for a second time that it was his half sister Liz (by his birth father of course). All he could say was "wow". This coming from a kind who has inherited my sarcasm and smart assedness (yes, I made up a new word). She is due 6 days after his birthday and told him don't be surprised if he has to start sharing his birthday cause that is the way things seem to work in our family. My brother was born on our aunt's birthday, my brother's daughter was born on A's 1 st birthday, and my friend Penny's DD (Lissy) was born on Roo's first birthday.
Do you or anyone in your family share a birthday with a close friend or other family member?
