Awww gaspode. That's so awesome. It's really amazing. Nothing prepared me for it, and of course I had the "easy" job. But when that baby comes, and you see and hold her/him for the first time - it really is magical. The first few weeks, you know, they sleep and poop and pee and cry. But when they start to wake up and dig the world around them, it's just sooooo cool.
Hey, you, i made you a shrinky dink.
Send your snail mail.
Did you figure out the child care thing? Because i wanna hear about how everyone is doing this; i don't know how it gets done without a phalanx of relatives and/or friends.
If it is as it seems that someone could make decent money for being a decent, responsible person around children, i may want in on this racket.
eth, you are SO sweet - check your e-mail. You'll always be special to me, and I can't explain why.
And daycare, well, we're going with a local gig here in town. Mrs. tr33 will have one day off every week with FLMA, and I will have one day off every week with flex hours, so she'll only be at daycare three days a week and this place charges an hourly rate. And they're cool, and earthy, and do a lot of education. And she'll exposed to a lot of diverse people. And they're cool with the veggie baby thing.
She's freakin' adorable, tr33! But if you think you have no time now, just wait until she starts moving. (The boy can escape from all baby-containment devices. I can't take my eyes off him for a second. I even have to bring him in the bathroom with me. He eats soap while I pee. Good times.)
I can't believe the gaspode baby is imminent. I'm so excited!
