My latest addition
Of late I have been trying to raise another family but this time, without my husband's help. He doesn't mind so long as he gets to hoard the tv while I'm at it. After a gestation period of 20 years and more, I birth her. She's easy to care for; doesn't cry for milk nor fuss at all. But alas, I have to put her up for adoption as I do not want to bring shame to the family. You see, anyone could tell that she's not my husband's as she is a blondie whereas my husband has jet black hair, and so have I.
No fret, she has gone to a good home and apparently her adopted brother, Nigel, is so taken with her that he thinks she's a doll!
To fill the void, Jo has sent me a hippo. In order not to remove it from its natural habitat, it shall be allowed to live in my pond of water lilies. In the meantime, I am going to let it play with some of its sea mates. Husband is happy, I am happy, everyone is happy. Oh, how I revel in stories with good endings.
