A Baby Shaped Wrench ...

Leave it to sperm to throw a wrench in your plans, right ladies?

I'm pregnant!

And I couldn't be more happy-scared-worried-thrilled-apprehensive-excited ... Because what is going to happen with my signing-a-contract-to-return-to-work-for-a-year and other things? And because I have a baby growing inside of me that is due somewhere around September 30th and we will have two in diapers! And because my little family who I love with all of my heart isn't going to be such a little family soon!

WOO HOO!!! You know, I was wondering when this was going to happen. I love that it is happening RIGHT NOW!

Congratulations, Anika! :)

I am very happy for you!!

But damn, girl, this is where our lives' similarities end!

Let me explain. One of the things that has drawn me to your blog is that we have a certain symmetry to our family units. I have two boys, and there is a large age gap between them. One will be 11 yrs old soon, the other is 1 and a half at present. And I have named them with the same first initial (OK, mine are G-boys, but work with me!)

So when you refer to your little family, I always smile because I've got the same set up. But my husband got a vasectomy in my third trimester! We are done!

All jokes aside, I am thrilled that your little family is growing. Though I WILL NOT be keeping pace with you, I will be wishing you well and hoping that you have time to blog all about it.

Cheers, Anika! From TBOP :)

You've returned home, eh? It's good to see you back here. I've apparently not checked in often enough, or I would not have missed all of the excitement. Belatedly or not, congrats on the new addition to the family! :)
