Today, someone at work commented on how they couldn’t believe that Christmas was just over two months away, and I thought to myself, “Christmas? What’s Christmas?” I can’t even think about it. Right now (and for the weeks and months of recent memory) my only focus is getting to and through the due date. Sure, Linda and I made plans for after the baby arrives – we have the breast pump, the washable diapers, the crib in our living room – but the plans all feel theoretical – like getting old – you know it’s coming, but you have too much to do first and a small part of you believes it won’t ever happen. It’s hard to picture with any clarity the new day-to-day that will be ours when Christmas time is here. Wow. I just realized something. We need to get another stocking.
31 days until baby. Please comment and follow.
