All in Idols

Precious Lil' Idols

It was Christmas Eve 2013.  I was busy in the kitchen chopping the salad, mixing fondue seasonings and fretting over each detail of our traditional fondue meal when my daughter, Maddy, called me into the living room.  She had a surprise gift for me.  I saw the size of the package and immediately knew what it was – telescoping fondue forks.  I had seen them at the store the previous week.  Sweet, but not tradition.  I considered that Jody, her dad and keeper of all traditions, would not be happy with the change.  Nevertheless, I put on my brave face and opened the gift.  But as soon as I began to unwrap it, I realized that I was wrong.  This was not trendy fondue forks.  Instead, I found a picture of a POSITIVE pregnancy test!
