Hoping this is quite a fun one for you. More decisions for you to make.

A year later, one of the triplets tells you she/his girlfriend is pregnant.

Write a short diary entry from your point of view as a grandparent-to-be. What were the circumstances – was it planned? An accident with a condom? Irresponsibility? Rape? Were you shocked or did you expect it? Why/why not? Did you give your child advice or trust their own judgement?

Six months later you’re at the hospital. You’re so proud of your child and the babies are gorgeous! (Oh yes, BABIES – after all, multiples run in the family!).

http://www.roll-dice-online.com/

Roll one 4-sided die once

1 – twins
2 – triplets
3 – quads
4 – quints

Then roll one 3-sided die once to decide what babies first names are named after.
1 – singers
2 - actors
3 – places

YOU PICK THE SEX OF EACH BABY & ANY MIDDLE NAMES :P

Design a birth announcement for the babies, from your point of view, as a grandparent, to send to your friends and family. You can use http://www.widdlytin...-announcements/, which is really simple. Add a photo if you can, many photography sites have suitable photos on.

June 18th, 2009:
Rory's pregnant. I can't believe it, she was just getting her life back together. Now she's gone back to how she was the first few weeks or so. She stayed in all day, lying on the sofa in silence. It's as though she thinks he's coming back. I've explaining that it's okay, he's in prison now, but I can't seem to reassure her.

June 21st, 2009:
She's decided to keep it, even with all the memories it's going to bring back over the years. She's so brave. I could never do what she's doing. I know what everyone's going to say. They'll either say how could you want a rapist's baby or if they don't know, they'll say what they said to me. Rory's definitely not a ######, though and she doesn't deserve that. I'm going to stand by her no matter what.

(EDIT: due to technical issues I had to upload the pic to photobucket)

20th March 2009:
I don't even know what to say.
About 3 months ago she started acting weird. But me and Noah just thought she was upset over her breakup with her ex-boyfriend Charlie..
But when she came home today, she looked like she'd been crying..
She couldn't seem to get the words out.

She was holding a shopping bag.

She looked at me, and handed it over.

There was a pregnancy test inside.


I don't really remember what happened between then and that evening. But what I do remember consists of a load of crying, hugging, Noah threatening to kill Charlie, crying kids and snotty noses.


My failure as a mother is epic.



23rd March 2009:
Me and Noah asked her what she wanted to do. We sat down after the kids were all in bed.. She said she won't get an abortion.
Then she locked herself in the bathroom and cried.

It KILLS me that I can't do anything to stop her pain.

She won't tell me if it's Charlies.. but I called his mother.


She screamed and said it wasn't his. She said that Amie had always been flippant.

The next 5 sentences consisted of mainly swear words and empty threats.



24th April 2009:
We talked some more today... We said that maybe adoption would be the best option.
She agreed.
So I guess we should get in touch with a few agencies.

I don't even know what I'm doing.



9th May 2009:
Amie found out the gender today. Me and Kimmy went with her during her lunch break.


Not only is she 16 and pregnant.

But it's twins. Two girls.


What're the odds, eh? :P



13th May 2009:
I watch her sleeping at night with her hand on her belly.
And when she thinks no ones looking, she sings to them.

She's getting attached. I KNOW it. And I hate that there's nothing I can do to stop it.

And I hate myself for thinking that.



2nd June 2009:
We found a family. (:
The Thoms.
They're names are Hannah and John, and they have another adopted son named Collin.

Amie seems to like them!

I do too. Noah's already grown attached to John. :D

Things are finally looking up!



20th June 2009:

She's having second thoughts.
She loves them so much already. :P
I don't know what to do, to be honest.

I want to protect her, and she's still so young.


I said that I'd help. In ANY way that I can.

If this is what she wants to do.

I told her she's a mother now, and that means putting them first. We talked about everything.


She's going to go back to school, while I take care of the girls and Ben - While Noah's at work.

Kim and Katie said they'd help as much as they can too.

Tom and Chris are still so angry at Charlie.. they're so protective of her. <3

And Nate and Lizzie said he'd feed him and bathe him - what a cutie. :D



24th June 2009:
The doctors said that it won't be much longer..

Amie's terrified. But we're all there, right behind her.

She said she wants me in the room. <3
I cried and she fell asleep on my lap.

She's growing up so fast. It's like a train that's going 90mph, and I just can't stop it.



27th June 2009:
04:05am - Well... it's time!

10:17am - It's been 6 hours and she's only dialated 5 cms. She's had the epidural, and I'm trying to get her to rest..

It's just heartbreaking. My heart was literally bleeding. She was in so much pain.. I could feel my heart just cracking.



15:45 - They're here!!!!!!!

September 14, 2009
I knew something had to be wrong. Nessa had been wearing sweaters and big bulky shirts for a while now. I finally confronted her. She finally came out and told me the truth. She was pregnant. I never thought I would hear those words come out of her mouth at such a young age. I did not expect it from Nessa. She was always the good one, the studious one. I feel like I have not raised my daughter right.
She tells me that the father is her ex, William Cathan, and is insistent on him being in their lives.

October 2, 2009
Some time has passed since Nessa told me the truth. I have started to come to the realization that my little girl is about to become a mother. I am so scared for her.

October 17, 2009
Nessa is about to pop. I can tell that she is so excited. She tells me that she is just excited to meet her little boys. Oh and yeah she is expecting two little boys. She keeps telling me that she is so excited. William and Nessa are getting the nursery ready for the boys arrival.

November 7, 2009
They are finally here! Vegas Jacob and Phoenix Jason arrived on this earth yesterday afternoon. Nessa and William are very excited to be first time parents.

November 27th, 2009: Today I walked into Jenny's bedroom to see her sick in bed again. I asked her how she was feeling and she said fine, then ran to the bathroom. She stayed home from school three days in a row now because she kept getting sick. When she returned to the bedroom she said she was having trouble getting the thermometer to work. Jenny asked me to go check on it, and said she left it on the counter. I walked into the bathroom to see it spotless, which never happened. Instead of seeing a thermometer on the counter, I saw a pregnancy test, with a smiley face. Jenny was pregnant.
I always thought that Jenny was the most responsible child we had. I never thought she'd become pregnant. If anyone, I figured it would be Molly. Jenny, Andrew and I had a long heart to heart. She said she and Matt had been sexually active for six months. She became worried when she missed her period. She said she took the test two weeks later. She wants to keep the baby.

December 23rd: Jenny and Matt went to the doctors today and discovered they are having quads!!!! What a great Christmas surprise! :P
March 14th: Jenny and Matt have decided to find-out the gender of the babies but not tell the family, the suspense is killing me.
June 25th:
3:27 am Jenny is in labor, we are at the hospital.
11:00 am Jenny and Matt just went into the operating room, I'm so scared, for both them and the quads.
11:45- Matt came out and said we had four new granddaughters: Emma, Ella, Anna, and Kylie. I couldn't be more pleased. The babies are a little early, but doing great. They are breathing on their own.
June 30th: All the babies have come home, our family is now complete.

DS/DS: Daniel Benjamin / Ryan Thomas (18)
DS/DS/DS: Milo Adams / Oliver Michael / Jake Francis (15 1/2)
DD: Isobel Taylor (9 1/2)
DS: Liam Nathan (8)
DD: Lena Rose (1)

* Jake and Mia have been dating for almost a year, but no one expected this. I tried to stay strong for them, but now that I'm alone I can't stop sobbing. This is not the way things are supposed to be. They are only sixteen-year olds.

Today, Mia came to dinner. After the younger kids had gone to bed, Jake asked Mark and I to go to the living room. Dan and Ryan were already there. The four kids had very serious faces, and I sensed something was wrong. Mark and I sat down on the sofa, waiting.

Mia opened her mouth but couldn't even speak a word before bursting into tears. I sat down there waiting for the worst: a death, an illness. Jake finally spoke: Mia was pregnant. And Dan and Ryan had known for quite some time too. Jake had gone to them for advice and they had convinced both Jake and Mia that it was best to tell us. I was instantly relieved that it wasn't something horrible and painful, but then a little voice inside my head said: they are only sixteen! Mark was sitting right beside me and didn't know what to say. We both looked at each other for what it seemed like an eternity before we heard Jake's voice again. There was more...

Mia's parents had kicked her out when she told them. She needed a place to stay. Thanks God we cleaned up the garage when spring came. Jake and Mia are going to stay there until we can figure things out.

After I got over the initial shock I assured them everything was going to turn out fine, and that we were going to help them. Mia couldn't stop sobbing, she said she was really grateful for everything and that although they hadn't planned this she knew Jake and her would be good parents. I didn't think it was a good time to talk about adoption, so I just went to make some tea while veryone calmed down.

After the tea we all went to bed.


* Jake and Mia told the kids today. They are all pretty excited. I'm starting to feel excited myself. Although I can't help thinking Jake and Mia are only teenagers.


* Quads. That's what the doctor told us today. Jake and Mia are in shock. Mia keeps saying there's no way they are going to be able to do this. I'm starting to think the same myself, but I don't want to scare them. I called Mia's parents after we came home from the doctor. Her mother picked up but didn't want anything to do with her daughter or the pregnancy. I can't believe someone would be so heartless.


* Today Marcus and I sat down with Jake and Mia to talk about adoption. After all, it's not going to be easy to take care of four babies at the same time. To our surprise, they had already considered the option and had done plenty of research themselves. They are going to keep their options open, but are leaning toward keeping the babies.

* The babies aree growing pretty fast. Mia is already on bed rest. The doctors want to keep her and the quads closely monitored because she's young and the babies are many. Everything is going as wellas can be under the circumstances. Mia's best friend somes at least twice a week to spend time with her; Jake is always beside her unless he's at school; and the kids do everything they can to help Mia and keep her occupied, they are so excited to be aunts and uncles.
Jake and Mia have decided they don't want to know the sex of the babies, so everyone in the family is making bets about it. Jake and Mia say they will be happy with whatever they get as long as the babies are healthy. They have grown so much in so little time. I'm very proud of both of them.

* Mia has been quite down for the last couple of days. I brought her breakfast today and sat down with her to talk for a while. She is very sad and hurt because her mother hadn't called her. It breaks my heart. I told her her mother will eventually come around, after all, Mia is her only daughter and the babies are her grandchildren.

* Today at the doctor's appointment, the ob/gyn couldn't find baby's B heartbeat. We were very scared. Jake held Mia's hand while the doctor searched for a heartbeat and tried to keep her hopes up, but tears ran down his face. After the longest minute of my life, the heartbeat was found. The four babies were alive, but baby B wasn't getting enough oxygen, so they have scheduled a c-section for tomorrow morning. This is completely unexpected, but we all need to stay strong.


* The babies are here! One girl and three boys. Mia wanted all of us to go to the hospital with her but Marc didn't think it was a good idea and I agreed. Dan, Ryan and I went to the hospital with Jake and Mia; and Marc stayed home with Milo and Oliver to keep an eye on Isobel, Liam and Lena Rose. I went with Jake and Mia, while Dan and Ryan waited ouside and kept the other updated on what was happening. Everything happened very fast. Jake and Mia were allowed to see and touch the babies for a few seconds before the doctors ran all the necessary tests. The quads will have to be in the NICU for at least two or three weeks, they are so little!
The best thing happened on the afternoon. Mia's parents went to visit her and the babies. Mia and her mother had a long, sincere conversation and they finally made up.
Jake and Mia decided to call the boys: Lucca Daniel, Bradley Thomas and Colton Francis. The girl's name is Adelaide Grace after Mia's mother (Alice) and me.

This is going to be quite an adventure, but we are all very grateful and happy for these four miracles.

I've been such a lucky mother, meeting Russel just when I was about to give up all hope. And though its been anything but easy raising eight kids, I couldn't have asked for it any other way.

I just can't believe this happening now. Alice has been acting strange lately. She's always been quiet and laid back, but she's been keeping to herself even more lately. I've caught her throwing up in the bathroom the past couple of mornings. At first, I was scared that she was developing an eating disorder, but it was Charlotte's innocence that shed some light on the situation.

After the third day in a row of Alice's vomiting, Charlotte rolled her eyes as Alice stumbled out of the bathroom, grumbling to herself, "Gosh, you're just like mom when she had morning sickness with Josh."

And then it clicked. Alice's face grew pale as she hurried down the hall back to her room, and she was not at all pleased when I followed.

"How long were you going to try to hide this?" I asked her, sitting down on the edge of the bed as I stroked her hair.

She opened her mouth to speak, but a strangled sob came out instead. I held her in my arms as I had done some many times in the past for much more trivial reasons until her tears finally ceased.

"You're mad at me, aren't you?" she mumbled, unable to catch my gaze.

"No, I'm not angry," I soothed her. "Just disappointed. But I can understand..."

I then proceeded to tell her the story I never planned to tell her. I told her about Monica and Mariah's birth.

"So Dad isn't their real father?" Alice's mouth hung open after I had told the painful story of my one night stand that had resulted in her two eldest sisters. "Do they know?"

"Yes, they know," I sighed. I had told them back when they were around ten years old because I thought it was only fair. I would've hated if the two had found out another way.

"Why didn't you ever tell us?" Alice asked, referring to her sisters and little Joshua.

I sighed once again. "I didn't think it was necessary. Your sisters seemed to want to keep it to themselves when I told them---they've always seen Russel as their true father and there was no reason for them to change that just because he isn't biologically their dad. I am sorry I never told you---but I'm telling you now, when I think it matters most..."

She then proceeded to tell me her story. When a group of kids had gone down the beach a few months previously, Alice had been bored and had decided to "experiment" in the back of car with a boy from her class she hardly knew. They hadn't planned on having sex, but it just sort of happened, and the result was Alice missing her period the next month. She had hid it well until the morning sickness hit, and now there was no denying the fact that my baby is going to be a mother.

I set up an doctor's appointment, and it turns out she's having twins. (Of course, with this family, what could you expect?) She's waiting to find out the gender until they are born. We talked about adoption, but Alice refuses, and she uses my story as her example.

I can't argue with that. I can't imagine how painful it would've been to give Monica and Mariah up for adoption, and though I know it will be hard for Alice, she's going make a great mother, and she has nine loving family members who are going to back her the entire way.

The twins were born this morning, and here I am sitting by Alice's bed as she peacefully sleeps. She gave birth to two healthy girls after 15 hours of brutal labor. The girls are so tiny and perfect in everyway.

She named them Lily Rose and Kate Olivia, the middle names after me, and I have never been so honored. The other kids love the babies, especially little Joshua, who is the baby of the family. I know that Alice is going to have lots of help once we bring the babies home.

I'm too tired to write anymore tonight, but as I look at my sleeping daughter, I don't think I've ever been so proud of her in my life.

(first names come from the singers Lily Allen and Kate Nash
