We were in Cosco on the weekend and I picked up a Baby Einstein flash card set for our friend's baby boy. And as I was browsing through the kids book, hubby says" Why don't we stock up?". I say, "Are you teasing me?" "No", he replies a bit indignantly. "No, not yet" I say. And move on to the adult book section.
Got a birth announcement in my email last night. Another trip to the store for a new baby something. Another moment where I will think about buying "extra". I feel cautious. Should I be making up a baby room? Collecting bits and pieces? This is weird. We've got two weddings this summer that we have to fly to, I have no idea when our life will change, how does one plan for this? What if we're getting ready to leave to go to Europe and we get a call that leads to a meeting? Yeah, I know, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it. Maybe I should paint the 2nd bedroom... maybe I should get some baby clothes... maybe it's time to hope again. Maybe getting the bits and pieces will nudge the universe into the right direction. Mmmmm.
