So I have GREAT news! Glenn brought up adoption yesterday. We're also officially "trying," but he also brought up adopting some older kids in two years or so, if we find we can't have one.
When we got home, I had this insane, obsessive desire to clean.
He's leaving in eight days, so while I'm hoping for a miracle, it's more likely that I'm going to spend the next three months, while he's gone, detoxing and preparing my body, in the hopes...
Anyway, I saw my niece yesterday. She's two and just ADORABLE. When I got there, she was sitting in her high chair, and she kept smiling at me. (Probably because I was grinning at her like an idiot, LOL.) Then she kept taking me to a couch in the den, sitting me down, and babbling at me for five minute straight spurts. She has a lot to say.
She can also talk. She told me to "open" the pool table, so we could play with the "balls." And when we played the four-foot singing Santa, she would say, "More Santa!" And I'd ask, "You want Santa to sing more?" And she'd say, "Okay. Okay, more Santa." And later she'd say, "More Santa. Okay."
It was adorable. She even took my hand and pulled me into the den, once, and I was certain I'd just won the million-dollar lottery.
So I want to ask: what was your journey like to have kids? To try? Or your decision not to? Any fun Christmas stories involving your children? Or other children? Any kid stories at all? I am so in the mood!
PS: I will be scarce the next eight days, while I savor the last 8 days with Glenn, before he leaves for 3.5 months. I have three guest bloggers, though! On Monday, Edie is blogging about opening up (a great blog, made me tear up!). On Tuesday, Zoe is blogging on were lore, and on Wednesday, Melanie is blogging about her experience moving to Mexico. Hopefully, I'll be back online for little bits here and there, or at least after he leaves. But if I'm in and out, I'll catch up later!
