Week 2 - pages 31-75 of "Marley and Me" by John Grogan
This storyboard does not have a description.
"I have always wanted kids but is it a good time?"
"This is not going to be easy but lets hope for the best"
"I can't wait to find out! This is so exciting!"
"This could change our lives forever, but i think we are ready"
"This is only the beginning of our family, and I am so happy to do it with you!"
"its positive! We are going to be parents honey!"
After a few weeks with Marley, John and Jenny begin to talk about expanding their family with children. They both love the idea, but they are not sure if they are ready. After some consideration, they decide to let nature take its course and hope for the best.
One night while lying in bed, Jenny lets John know that she has been feeling odd for the past couple days. She feels like she has had a slight stomach ache and she has constantly been hungry. They feel like this could mean they have a child on the way, and the can not wait, so they get up after little deliberation and head to the drug store for a pregnancy test.
I believe this scene is significant because it shows that John and Jenny are going to have a baby and this will help shape the plot for the rest of the story. This event is also the beginning of the Grogan family, and this will mean that John and Jenny will begin to mature in their character in the story. Also, this baby will likely be a main part in the story and in Marley's life, so his or her birth will be crucial for the whole story.
