We only have a few weeks to go till Baby #2, and — thanks to my nesting brain and Hubba Bubba’s accommodating brawn — all the big things are done. Nursery is set up. Infant equipment is out of storage and ready to use. Newborn clothes and diapers are in the drawers prepped to go. Hospital bag is packed. And Cousin Kate arrives in a week (Three cheers for Kate!) to help care for the Big Sister in this time of transition.
Greetings from the sick house. You haven’t heard much from me because last week Eleanora was stricken with a stomach bug. Yeesh.
And then this week I’ve had a bad cold that, combined with 8 months of pregnancy, has reduced me to a useless, Darth Vader-breathing lump. I’ll swear it is almost as bad as a Man Cold. But of course, as every wife knows, nothing is as bad as a Man Cold.
I’ll be back next week with some more recipes for Easiest Dinners Ever. Until then, tell me what you think. Do these two people look like they’re related?
