How I got my diamond earrings


Another cool story about my son, since his birthday was yesterday. When I got pregnant with him, 23 years ago, we called my in-laws in January before he was born in October, and told them the good news. Since this was probably the last chance for my father-in-law to get a grandson, he made me a deal. His birthday is October 2, so he said if I gave him a grandson on his birthday, he would buy me Diamonds! Well it was fate or something, cause I was due the middle of October, but since they thought I might be having twins, I had an ultrasound in June and they moved my due date to the last week of September.


I couldn't believe it, but my water broke at Midnight on October 1st and he was born at 7:45 October 2. As soon as I was back in my room, that morning, I called my father-in-law in Denver and told him "He better go shopping". 5 Hours later he showed up with a pair of diamond earrings and a football for his grandson who shares his birthday. They are really close and has spent their birthday together most every year.


And I got my Diamonds! This is a picture of the two of them in Alaska this past summer.

This is a great story!

What a handsome son you have. I have a 24-year-old and 22-year-old daughter (my oldest is an October baby too).

Happy Birthday to your son! And good job on those earrings.
