Monkeys and Brothers

First of all, I want to say Happy Birthday to my brother...hope you are having a great time campin'. 
Of course, I have to share my "Moccasin Holler Memoir" about his birth.  Hope you all enjoy it.

Baby Brother’s are a Different Story

You may recall what I told you about how we got my sister.  How the doctor brought her straight to Granny’s house and put her in the bed with Mama. Let me tell you…brothers are a whole different story.

        For no reason, Daddy up and told my sister and I  that we were goin’ to Granny’s.  He was gonna drop us off there and take Mama on to this place called a hospital.  Apparently, that’s where they keep baby brothers…cause Mama just had to walk down to Granny’s and the doctor brought my sister to her. 

     We waited and waited and waited.  Finally, after forever, Daddy came back to Granny’s and told us we had a baby brother.  But, that’s not the best part.   He said our baby brother looked like a little monkey.  Wow, we were thrilled!  

     The days passed, we were really missin’ Mama.  But, words can’t express how much we wanted to see our little monkey brother!!  The big day finally came, Daddy brought Mama to Granny’s.  We ran to give her all the hugs and kisses we had been saving, keeping our eyes on the blanket covered bundle in her lap.  Our brother was here and we stood “patiently” waiting to see him.  You could feel the excitement in the air as the covers were pulled back.  He didn’t look anything like a monkey.  He was just a regular baby!   Although that red complexion and all those wrinkles were pretty interesting, it was such a disappointment.  We had waited a really long time and been extra special good for Granny…where was our little monkey brother?

     After awhile, the red faded, the wrinkles were gone and he was gigglin’ and sighin’ and makin’ funny faces.  I’ll be the first to admit he was a cutie. My sister and I decided he was definitely a keeper.  But, can you imagine how great it would have been to have a little monkey brother!

     Thanks for stopping by and don't forget...I'll be announcing the winner of the giveaway tomorrow night.
