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.
One More for the Reader ... - Hopefully this will go out on the reader -- that I am shutting her down today (well making it accessible to those who give me their email addresses anyway)...
