The real news

The kids are very excited about the new baby. They're having great fun coming up with possible names (including Shoulder Pad, and Butt Kicker).

Jane told our eight year-old neighbour, who ran to his house to scream it to his parents. The mum came outside to hear the news first hand.

Jane, by this point, had moved onto something else. And that something else was getting her younger sister to say silly things.

Neighbour: Jane! I hear you guys have some news!

Jane looks blank.

Jane: What?

Neighbour: Is there something exciting you want to tell me?

Jane thinks for a moment. Then smiles wide.

Jane: Alice said "pickle face"!
