You Can Call Me "Tia"

Several weeks ago, I found out the wonderful news that I am going to become an aunt! My sister is about 13 weeks pregnant, and I couldn't be happier!


A year or two ago, I told Jilly that when she has a baby, I want to be called "Tia" (Spanish for aunt), and she was totally on board with that plan. When she called to tell me her news, our phone conversation went like this:


Starshine: Hello?


Jilly: Is this Tia?


Starshine: NO WAY!!!


Jilly: *giggles* Yep! I'm pregnant!


Now I have to wait until April 14th to meet the little nugget!!!

Congratulations to Jilly, too! :)

I wanted my name to be Tia when I was growing up, because of "Escape to Witch Mountain".
