Books and baby

Is it wrong that we have more than 18 books for our child already, but no child in sight?
The last three were bought Tuesday and we swore to ourselves we were not going to buy more until our child was at least a fetus. So far, so good.
We’re going to a book fair today; let’s see if we can keep our promise.
In the meantime Stork is reading the book about dragons and I read the Spanish Atlas (bought in honor of Stork’s homeland); so it’s not a total waste of money if our child decides not to come.

Ring around the sun

Yesterday morning Stork came to get me to show me what she described as “a round rainbow around the sun”. She took her camera and out we went. It turns out it wasn’t as colourful as a rainbow, but it was an amazing sight nonetheless.

Lazy cleaning lady

We caught our cleaning lady taking a nap while on duty. Should we fire her?

Today is our anniversary. Four years since declaring our feelings to each other. That was our “wedding”. I don’t know about Stork, but I’m hoping for at least 40 more years of this.

The Kid

We went to our friend’s house a few days ago with Itty Bitty (the puppy) in tow. It turns out that The Kid is terrified of dogs. I guess that after half an hour without moving from the couch, afraid that if his feet touched the floor they would be devoured by the menacing Itty Bitty, he got a little fed up of the 3 pound creature running freely in his realm and asked his father:
“Dad, where can you turn it off?” (IT being Itty Bitty)

Little green suitcase

We have a small lime green suitcase filled with dreams. It all started September 2008 when a 7 month baby girl was going to move with us. It’s a sad story, but it’s full of hope. We received a call, something was said and then four letters that ripped our hearts out. It was not possible for her to be with us, she had to go to “someone more experienced”, and so things and dreams got stored as our little girl sailed into her new life.
Now as both she and us are doing better, I took the suitcase out, and upon inspection realized that as much as we want to adopt, the time has come for us to TTC. Now we wait as new words mark our daily calendar. Basal Body Temperature time it is.
