Upon telling him that I was the proud mother of a beautiful baby boy (Spam), his exact response was, “What would possess you to do that?”
This was reiterated twice more when I called him to discuss the adoption of Sox and Sushi.
Now my mom and multiple inlaws (parents, aunt/uncle, grandma) have all showered gifts upon our first “children,” but I pretty much died of shock when my dad called me to tell me that he had bought his first “grandchildren” gifts while he was on vacation.
He thinks that I don’t know the truth – but I do. He’s just a big ole softy.
