CONFERENCE CALLS FROM THE WOMB ...

                             

For months now, my parents have been telling me about their daily phone conversations with my nephew, Jackson.  He's brilliant, they say ... a Born Communicator, a True Genius.  The only thing is, he hasn't been born yet.  Every night since January they've been calling my sister in Massachusetts, asking her to put the phone up to her belly, and wishing Jackson "Good Night."  My mother tells him how much he is loved by the whole family.  My father gives him a daily lesson in life.  I've heard so much about these conversations -- and Jackson's enthusiastic responses -- that, admittedly, I was ready to "Cry Uncle."  That is, until I witnessed the phenomenon for myself last night.  Sure enough, my parents got on the phone with Jackson and -- after a brief, Pregnant Pause in the discussion -- Jackson sprang into action.  Naturally, we can hardly wait to say "hello" to Jackson in person.  He's due next month!

I hate to say this, but the way your Sis has her legs in the air, she looks like she's just going to launch Jackson onto the sofa!

That is TOO classic, lol. Jackson will know his grandparents from the moment he is born. Better hone in on some of that action!

That is so cool! Of course, his first birthday gift from Uncle will be his own cell phone, right? --Cin
