My parents always told me I was a celebration!
They finally moved to a new apartment with 2 bedrooms. One for my sister and brother to share, one for them (so they didn't have to sleep on the pull-out sofa anymore). They weren't planning on anymore kids (my sister is almost 9 years older than me, my brother is 6 years older). Nine months later, I came along and my parents were back on the pull-out sofa. That lasted another 5 years until they bought our house and everyone got their own room.
