Albuquerque's impending bundle of joy

Posted on May 8, 2011 at 12:14am 11 Comments

I’m sitting at home recently when a KOAT teaser comes on.  Shelly Ribando is talking about how she is going to make the “big announcement” about the physical changes that have been concerning some of her viewers.  I felt a little puzzled.  Why the big announcement?  It's obvious she's pregnant.  My mom called it months ago.  My dad, too, noticed that Shelly's face looked "different".  Maybe it was my mom's womanly instincts, or the fact she's given birth to seven…

I look over to see my three year old standing in kitchen, “Hello, President Luna.
