When you are 70 years old and your daughter breaks the news that she is expecting, via a blog, well I have to tell you that it does take a while to get your blood pressure back to normal.
What’s even worse, she says that she is in her third trimester. I mean really! Isn’t there a better way to break the news. How about FaceTime or Skype. Some method that provides some face to face communication.
Don’t I deserve some small amount of consideration? Wouldn’t you feel the same way if you were blindsided with news like this in a non-personal way like a blog post? I think so.
I remember when she was the bundle that was on the way. I called my mother and personally told her the good news. I was so proud. Had there been FaceTime or Skype in those days, I would have used them.
Now I realize that when this little bundle is here, I will be proud again. I know that so much happiness will be given to so many people when this bundle is delivered, but still. I can’t keep from thinking that there is a better way to tell your father.
