Three's a Crowd?

There are days when news can be surprising
Impossible to guess on rising
And yesterday was one of those
Which proves in life one never knows.

A dear friend rang me, thrilled to say
Her new grandson was born today
But before I could congratulate
She dropped a bombshell on my plate.

The day before, another son
With news of baby girl had rung;
This was not all, as far away
Her third son telephoned to say

He too had more good news to share
Another girl – which makes the pair!
Already grand-mama of two
Three wee arrivals all brand new

Have caused my friend's warm heart to leap
And robbed her of her beauty sleep!
I love great moments such as these
And don't all good things come in threes?
