Chapter 1: The close family preparation

1 fine morning in the city of Struthersville, the Johanssons were relaxing on the family sofa.

"Well, Larry, should we tell her the exciting news?" Mrs. Johansson asked as Kayla looked up at them.

"What? tell me what?" Kayla asked as Mr. and Mrs. Johansson revealed the exciting news to her.

"Your mother is in labor, Kayla........" Mr. Johansson said as Mrs. Johansson nodded her head in agreement.

"That means you're gonna have a little brother or sister real soon." Mrs. Johansson said as Kayla smiled in delight.

Kayla became so excited with the good news on her mind.

"Wow, I'm so excited and thrilled that this is the greatest day of my entire life!" Kayla exclaimed in excitement as she raised her arms in triumph.

Meanwhile in the living room......Kayla was watching the ending to The Muppet Show season 6 episode 620: Bailee Madison, and Mr. Johansson came right into the living room.

"So, Kayla, now that your show is over, let's speak about it a bit." Mr. Johansson said as he turned off the television screen.

"How do you feel about this new baby thing?" Mr. Johansson asked as Kayla got more excited than usual.

"Great, Dad, I can hardly even wait." Kayla said as Mr. Johansson smiled at her in agreement.

"You're mother got into more labor, and you'll probably become the big sister of a young boy or maybe a young girl." Mr. Johansson said as Kayla's eyes widened in amazement.

"I'm gonna become the big sister to a little brother or sister?" Kayla asked in amazement as Mr. Johansson nodded his head in agreement.

"I'm gonna become the big sister to a little brother or sister, yahoo!" Kayla cheered in excitement as she went right upstairs to her bedroom.

That night, Kayla was in her Tinkerbell pajamas and already in bed, 'til Mrs. Johansson came in to see her.

"So when is my new brother or sister ready to be born? is it gonna be nervous to come outta there by itself?" Kayla asked as Mrs. Johansson sat right down on the corner of Kayla's bed.

"Well, Kayla, just in a couple of days and nights." Mrs. Johansson said as Kayla lied her head down on her Daisy Duck pillow and fell asleep.

"This is the greatest family thing in my entire life." Kayla said while relaxing in her slumber as she was still asleep.

The very next day, Kayla, Mr. and Mrs. Johansson and Becky were already at Tiffany's house on her front step.

"Hey, Janet, how are you feeling this afternoon?" Tiffany asked as Mrs. Johansson smiled at her in agreement.

"Oh, pretty good, Tiffany, things are looking good so far." Mrs. Johansson said as Becky put her right arm around Kayla's right shoulder.

"That's right, I wanna be with my best friend for life when she becomes the big sister in Struthersville." Becky said as Tiffany smiled at them.

"I know, Becky, it's very exciting, we'll watch movies on the DVD player, and we'll make caramel popcorn, it'll be just like a sleepover camp out." Tiffany said as Becky got so excited as Kayla was.

"Wow, a sleepover camp out, and a baby boy or girl on the way........this is so very exciting." Becky said as Kayla was so delighted to hear what she just said before.

"I know, Becky, I can hardly wait." Kayla said as she didn't wanna be a lonesome child anymore.

"Kayla, come over here for 1 2nd, let me take 1 good look at you." Mrs. Johansson said as Kayla walked right over to them.

"Next time we see you, Kayla, you'll become the big sister real soon." Mrs. Johansson said as Kayla waved goodbye to them.

"Goodbye, Mr. and Mrs. Johansson, be careful driving out there!" Becky called out to them as Tiffany was about to take them inside her house.

"Come on, girls, let's go inside my house........" Tiffany said as she, Kayla and Becky went inside her house.

Chapter 3: Staying over night at Tiffany's house

That evening at Tiffany's house, Kayla was wondering when her mother and father were gonna call on the telephone, even if they just got here.

"Tiffany, when are my mom and dad gonna call on the telephone? it's been so long." Kayla said as Tiffany walked right over to them.

"Kayla, I'm pretty sure they'll call just as soon as they can." Tiffany said as Kayla got very patient.

"Alright, Tiffany, but what can we do around here?" Kayla asked as Tiffany held up a familiar looking DVD cover.

"Hey, while we're at it, who's up for The Muppet Show season 6?" Tiffany asked as she held up The Muppet Show complete 6th season DVD right in front of them.

"Oh, I am, Tiffany....." Becky said while raising her right hand up in mid-air.

"I could use a little bit of distraction here........" Kayla said as Tiffany turned on the television screen and the DVD player.

Kayla and Becky were watching episode 620: Bailee Madison, and Kermit appeared on the television screen and said, "It's The Muppet Show with our very special guest star, Miss Bailee Madison, yaaaaaaay!!!"

The red curtains rose up, and the theme song went like this.........

Female Muppet Characters: It's time to play the music, it's time to light the lights, it's time to meet the Muppets on The Muppet Show tonight

Male Muppet Characters: It's time to put on make up, it's time to dress up right, it's time to raise the curtain on The Muppet Show tonight

Waldorf: why do we always come here?

Statler: I guess we'll never know

Waldorf: it's like some kind of torture

Statler + Waldorf: to have to watch the show

The music continued playing on the television screen........

Kermit: and now let's get things started Miss Piggy: why don't you get things started?

Kermit + Muppet Friends: it's time to get things started on the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational, this is what we call The Muppet Show..........

The opening theme song intro ended with Gonzo playing his trumpet, but it sounded just like Tarzan's jungle shouting.

They were so busy having fun watching the musical #s and sketches, 'til they heard the telephone ringing in the kitchen.

"Tiffany, can you go get the telephone, please?!?" Kayla called from the living room as Tiffany walked right over to the ringing telephone to pick it up.

"I got it, Kayla, I got it." Tiffany said as she answered the telephone in a jiffy.

"Hello? oh hi there........" Tiffany said as Kayla went up to her.

"Is it Mom? is it Dad?" Kayla asked as Tiffany shushed her.

"It's Mr. Jefferson........." Tiffany said as she went back to speaking on the telephone.

"Hi there, Ben........uh, no, Janet hasn't had her baby boy or girl yet, she's still in the hospital, anyway, we'll see you later in person, goodbye." Tiffany said as she hung up the telephone.

"When are they gonna call, Tiffany? it's kind of hard to wait around here." Kayla asked as Tiffany made 1 suggestion.

"You know, Kayla, 1 of those things might take a little while, tell me about your picture drawing, look at this, look at this." Tiffany said as Kayla showed her the picture drawing.

"Why sure, that's my mom, that's my dad and that's me." Kayla said as Becky looked right at it.

"But shouldn't the new born baby be in that picture drawing? after all, the new kid's gonna be living with you, it's gonna be part of your entire family." Becky said as Kayla stopped her a bit.

"Yes, I realize that, Becky, but how can I draw a picture of a new born baby? it hasn't even been born yet, and besides, I don't know if it's a young boy or a young girl, and I don't even know what it looks like." Kayla said as Becky sighed heavilly.

"Yeah right, any 2nd now, that telephone is gonna ring, and you'll find out if you're the big sister to a little sister or little brother." Becky said as the telephone began ringing again.

"The telephone, the telephone!" Kayla and Becky exclaimed in unison as Tiffany went back over to it and picked it up.

"I got it, I got it." Tiffany said as she answered the telephone again.

"Is it for me? is it for me?" Kayla asked as Tiffany looked down at her.

"It's Miss Johnson." Tiffany said as Becky looked a bit confused.

"Miss Johnson?" Becky asked as Kayla couldn't take anymore boredom.

"Oh, I can't take this boredom anymore, I'm at the end of my little rope." Kayla said as Tiffany suggested she should keep doing her picture drawing.

"Just keep drawing, Kayla, it'll calm you down." Tiffany said as Kayla went back to the dining room table.

"Drawing good pictures, why not?" Kayla said as she sat right down to finish her picture drawing.

Becky was walking around back and forth again........

"Becky?" Kayla asked.

"Huh, what?" Becky asked.

"You're doing it again." Kayla said as Becky told her about the telephone ringing.

"I know, Kayla, but when that telephone rings, nothing's ever gonna be the same again, ever......" Becky said as the telephone began ringing again.

"The telephone, Tiffany!" Becky exclaimed as Tiffany went over to answer it again.

"It's probably Mr. Jacobson or Miss Jefferson or somebody else who wanted to know if my mom had her baby girl or boy." Kayla said as Tiffany answered the telephone.

"Hi there, Larry, yes, Kayla is right here." Tiffany said as she gave Kayla the telephone.

"Dad, is that really you?" Kayla asked as Mr. Johansson answered her.

"Of course it's me, Kayla, and I'm just calling to tell you that you got a new little brother." Mr. Johansson said as Kayla got very excited about it.

"I do?" Kayla asked in excitement.

"That's right, Kayla, you're the big sister in the entire family." Mr. Johansson said as Kayla smiled a bit.

"I-I really am?" Kayla asked a bit nervously.

"That's right, Kayla." Mr. Johansson said as Kayla pondered for 1 bit.

"Could you and Mom come back home to my house? I kind of miss you guys." Kayla said as Mr. Johansson shook his head.

"Not yet, Kayla, you're mother needs a little more rest, but you can come down to the hospital, how'd you like to see your new brother?" Mr.Johansson asked as Kayla got the idea.

"Really, Dad? when can I meet him?" Kayla asked.

"How 'bout right now?" Mr. Johansson asked.

"Right now?" Kayla asked as Tiffany gently grabbed the telephone from her.

"Larry, I'll bring her right over." Tiffany said as Mr. Johansson agreed with her.

"Oh good." Mr. Johansson said as they both hung up the telephone.

"I got a new little brother." Kayla said as Becky and Tiffany congratulated her.

"That's great news, Kayla." Tiffany said as she and Becky smiled at her.

"Congratulations, Kayla, now your mom and dad will have a new little baby boy to play with, cuddle and kiss on the forehead." Becky said as Kayla stopped them for just 1 bit.

"Hey, wait 1 single minute, what'll happen to me?" Kayla asked.

"They're gonna still cuddle you and play with you too, so don't worry about it, now let's go." Tiffany said as Kayla was about to finish her picture drawing."

"Wait, Tiffany, I need to finish my picture drawing." Kayla said as TIffany stopped her a bit.

"Well, Kayla, I'm pretty sure you can finish it there." Tiffany said as Becky came up with a wonderful idea in her mind.

"Alright, and I'll tell everybody else in Struthersville that Mrs. Johansson had her baby boy, you're such a lucky big sister, Kayla." Becky said as Kayla looked a bit nervous, but excited.

"Yeah right....lucky."  Kayla said as she sighed heavilly.

"I think......" Kayla said as she and Tiffany went off to Michael Clarke Duncan Memorial Hospital.

Chapter 4: Meeting Joey at Michael Clarke Duncan Memorial Hospital

Meanwhile at Michael Clarke Duncan Memorial Hospital, Kayla and Tiffany were walking around the hallways and a female voice was heard over the P.A. system.

"Dr. Lawson, Dr. Lawson, please report to the emergency room, Jake has broken his arm again." the female voice said as Kayla and Tiffany were looking for Mrs. Johansson's hospital room.

"Is this my mom's room?" Kayla asked as TIffany looked right at it.

"Room 211? no, that's not it." Tiffany said as they walked over to another door.

"How 'bout that 1?" Kayla asked as Tiffany looked right at the # written on it.

"Room 212? no, that's not it either." Tiffany said as Nurse Patterson walked right over to them.

"Hi there, I'm Nurse Patterson, how can I help you?" Nurse Patterson asked.

"Do you know where my mom's room is?" Kayla asked.

"Why sure, Janet Johansson, oh there she is, right over in room 213." Nurse Patterson said as Kayla and Tiffany continued their way to room 213.

"Carl Gibson to the operating room, please! the female voice exclaimed as Kayla knocked on the door and Mr. Johansson stepped out to see her.

"Dad, good to see you again!" Kayla exclaimed in excitement.

"Good to see you again too, Kayla." Mr. Johansson said as Tiffany stood right by them.

"Thanks for bringing her over, Tiffany." Mr. Johansson said as Tiffany smiled at them

"No problem, Larry." Tiffany said as Kayla was about to go inside Mrs. Johansson's room with Mr. Johansson.

"Come in with me, Kayla." Mr. Johansson said as he and Kayla were about to go inside Mrs. Johansson's room.

"Hang on 1 2nd, Dad, I don't think I'm ready yet." Kayla said as Mr. Johansson questioned her a bit.

"Ready for what, Kayla?" Mr. Johansson asked.

"Well, when I walk through that door, I'll be the big sister in the entire family, but what if I don't know how to handle it?" Kayla asked.

"You're gonna make a clever big sister, Kayla." Mr. Johansson said while looking at her.

"You really think so, Dad?" Kayla asked.

"I know so, Kayla." Mr. Johansson replied.

"Right, Tiffany?" Mr. Johansson asked.

"Absolutely." Tiffany said while nodding her head in agreement.

"Come on, Kayla, there's a little young boy in there who wants to meet his big sister for the very 1st time." Mr. Johansson said as Kayla was all prepared for this event.

"Alright, I'm ready, I think......." Kayla said as she and Mr. Johansson went inside Mrs. Johansson's room.

"And I'm gonna stay right here." Tiffany said as she stood around in the hallway.

Meanwhile in Mrs. Johansson's room, Kayla and Mr. Johansson  went over to see Mrs. Johansson in her hospital bed.

"Look who's here." Mr. Johansson said as he escorted Kayla to Mrs. Johansson's hospital bed.

"Mom, it's good to see you again!" Kayla exclaimed in excitement.

"It's good to see you again too, Kayla." Mrs. Johansson said in agreement.

"Come say 'hi there' to your little brother." Mr. Johansson said as Kayla was wondering where her new little brother was.

"Where is he?" Kayla asked.

"He's right here, Kayla." Mr. Johansson said as Kayla walked right over to the baby boy's basket.

"That's him? he's so tiny and little, I thought I was a little young kid, but he's a little tiny young kid, wow, look at his little hands, and his little nose, look at his baby head, it's so shiny and new." Kayla said as she was about to touch his head, but she wasn't quite sure about it.

"It's alright, Kayla, you can touch him, but just gently." Mr. Johansson said as Kayla looked at him.

"Oh, he's so soft and adorable........" Kayla said looking into the basket.

"Hi there, little......." Kayla asked as she paused for 1 minute.

"What's his name?"

"Well, we still haven't decided yet."
