I know this might sound silly, but I realized last night that this is our last week, potentially our last DAY of being childless! We are not quite at the due date (2/14) but really this could happen anytime. And the meaning of that is a bit shocking. Today I sit here at my desk – we have an apartment, two cats, a car, etc. Tomorrow we could also have a kid. Just as if we were to run out to the store later and decide to get one. A kid. One day no kid, next day, kid.
Remember that movie, Three Men and a Baby? All of a sudden on their doorstep was a kid. That is kind of how this feels. Imagine going to your front door right now and having a kid for the rest of your life. Surprise!
Holy crap, as they say.
Not that I have been unaware of the implications of being pregnant, but still. Sometimes the reality of these things hits you like a sledgehammer.
And don’t get me wrong, a good sledgehammer. But a sledgehammer nevertheless.
