I was awoken to my phone chiming at me at 6:58 a.m. no one really calls that early unless something is awry…I notice the number, big smile on face (yes, before coffee), dial back the number and hear yes, you are an auntie!!!! YIPPEE!!! Baby boy Tharan, now officially called Zackary Ryan Tharan, born on September 2, 2008 at 5:00am. Here’s the thing, the family you GET to pick is sometimes so much better than the family that is bestowed upon you! For starters you didn’t fight like hell over the bathroom growing up, you didn’t have to draw an imaginary line in the car on the roadtrip from hell…you get the point. So although, I am a surrogate auntie, a proud auntie nonetheless!
Jax, also very excited about Baby T, is awaiting his visitation after school. Zackary, you are one lucky dude to have Jax as your older friend, he has A LOT to teach you and share with you. First things first, sleep. Gotta sleep kid, lots to do during the day! OK, I think he can wait at least a month to teach you the rest!
A lot of love in our lives right now, some lost, some gained, but love nonetheless and that’s a pretty good place to be. Hey Zackary, you are in excellent hands, I couldn’t be happier with your pick of parents!
