Is picking favorites fair? Not usually in my book. But I have favorites....I do!....even though I am a firm believer it isn't fair....I have favorites.
I have favorite memories of all my aunts and uncles, of horses saddled up and ridden slow, of the best scrambled eggs in the world, of dune buggies and strobe lights. I have favorite memories of my cousins, of babysitting days, make believe games, performances put on for parents. I have favorite memories of my in laws, of camping trips across the country, of New Years Eve parties, of Snapple left as a surprise gift.
But how could I pick just one?
So I will pick the family member that has me the most excited, a member of our family that isn't even known (although I have a guess and I've guessed right 13 out of 14 times).....my favorite is a blessing , an expected delight, a new baby.
Niece or Nephew? We'll know in May! And right now, when this little peanut is making its presence known, popping out in a cute pregnant tummy, it is my favorite! It's the joy of a new life, and I am quite beside myself with excitement.
