New Feature: Relative of the Week!

This week's relative: Big Jer!

Big Jer played it cool during Stella's incubation period, but once she arrived he lost his proverbial shit over this little incarnation. If Stella was a publicly traded stock, Beg Jer would be a 90% shareholder. If Stella were an infectious disease, Big Jer would be contagious. If Stella was saffron, he would buy her by the pound. If Stella was a beautiful wisteria tree bursting with blooms, he would drive across town and plant her in the ground!

Big Jer is Stella's only surviving biological grandpa. He's got a big job ahead of him. I'm sure he'll do his best to teach her fairness and the value of hard work and he'll balance out the two grandmas who love to spoil her. He'll teach her the meaning of no and the comfort of boundaries and self-control on eBay. And if she's really good she'll get to hold Squawkers! Oh yes!
