..one of those "kids-in-law" that you like almost - almost - as much as the kid themselves?
Yea, I have one of those and his birthday is today..(actually, I have 3 1/2 of those - the "3 1/2" will be 4 on the Fourth of July when she marries Andy) ..but none of them have a birthday today.
Johnny, my Son-in-Law that lives in New Jersey as husband of Brandi and Papa to Ella Ireland, has been a delight in our lives. He not only gave is Ella but he took Brandi!!
When thet got married (one of THE funnest weddings we've ever been to - so far..) he not only had to sign the marriage certificate,but a "contract" Mr. B and I drew up..
Yep. An all sales are final" type of thing..
You know, no returns...
And it had a clause that he and any subsequent heirs could visit at any time for as long as they wanted..but Brandi needed to give 2 weeks notice, could stay for no longer than 72 hours and had to bring any/all children that were an issue of said marriage with her.
Yeppers..we were happy that Brandi finally caught..I mean..found.. someone who would be her all..and Johnny is...
He's a Mechanical Engineer for the city and he's been a part of the parks, stadiums and a lot of city work.
He's the only son of wonderful Puerto Rican parents with 2 older sisters. He is smart, funny, interesting and VERY patient..with both Brandi and Ella..
He takes Ella to his favorite sports events, Soccer and has even had a soccer jersey signed for her by the New York Bulls (which I guess is a really neat thing)
He teaches Ella lots and she has him wrapped around her little finger.
And he loves that.
He even doesn't mind when the old "Mother-in-Law" comes to visit and takes his day off to show me around on all three times I've been there.
Yes, we are soooo fortunae to have hit the Tri-Fecta when it comes to kids-in-law...
(No pressure, Barb..Andy will show you the ropes..)
Happy Birthday Johnny. WE love and appreciate you!
