Rob and I got some great news this weekend--dear friends are having a baby. This marks something like the 37th couple we know who are pregnant or actively trying to be. And I hesitate to make an obvious statement like "There's something in the water" but...um...is there something in the water? And if there is, I'll just have another glass of wine, because I'm not quite ready to join the crowd here. And also because several of my wine drinking requirements have been met: it is a day of the week and I am awake.
My wish to wait a while before having kids comes despite the fact that my mother ends every one of our conversations with a comment about how anxious she is for me to provide a grandchild. Actually, now that I think about it, it's not that she intends to end our conversations this way. It's just that I always hang up at that point.
But enough about me. Wonderful people are procreating or working on it and that just makes me happy (see how I brought that back around to me?) Please note that when I am babysitting your future kids, I will keep the drinking to a minimum.
Congratulations, love, and luck.
Jack is TWO!
