If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, nothing should really surprise you about my family. You would think we try to break the traditional family mold in every way imaginable. We don’t try, it just comes naturally to us.
Bring on the real modern family.
Let’s do a quick recap of where things stood before today.
That’s my dad on the left, my dad’s partner, Jon, on the right, and Jon’s adopted son Carlos in the middle. Yes, Carlos is my step-brother…basically. Carlos is now five.
And that’s my brother, Jeff, his mail-order-bride (not really) from Japan, Tomoe, and their son, Kai.
Then I married the old, black man, G (he’s now 51).
Mostly for the cake and a mixer, but whatever. It was legal…and binding.
Before I realized it, I had two step-sons…that were practically my age (they are 17 and 27).
I think that brings us to where we are today. And now, we need a shotgun wedding.
You’ve probably figured out who’s having the wedding, but if you haven’t, here’s a hint:
That’s right…MY SISTER, EMILY! She’s gotten herself knocked up and they are getting married today (maybe even while you’re reading this). And to make it just a little more modern, it’s a surprise wedding. She knows she’s getting married today, she just doesn’t know when or what will be happening. It should make for a great blog post…and that’s all I really care about.
Now the nieces and nephews are really starting to add up. For those trying to keep track, I have 2 nieces from my step-sister, Laura, my nephew, Kai, an unborn nephew (Kai’s brother) and my sister’s fetus. After today’s ceremony, I will gain another niece and nephew to scar for life mentor.
Jamison’s kids, Toya and Elijah.
Welcome to the family!
