In my first post, I said that I would write one post a day until the baby turned one. That's still the plan, and I realized today that my last post is a little more than a year away. Once jack (or jane) pops his head out of the box, it's 365 more posts to go. So, in thinking about that, I tried to imagine what life will be like in one year. The presidential campaigns will be in full swing (ugh), the last of the Harry Potter movies will have come and gone, and my kid's first summer will be a memory. There's a lot that I can see coming, but there is so much more than I have no choice but to wonder about. I tried to think of the biggest questions I have for the coming year. Some are baby-related, some not, but really, in the end, they're all baby related.
Will we find a new place to call home? Will we be moved in?
What will be the color of our baby's hair? Their eyes?
Will our baby be sleeping through the night? Will we?
Will Linda and I still have the relationship that we do now, or what changes will the baby bring?
Will Linda let me touch her again (y'know, in THAT way), or will she be sleeping with a baseball bat?
Will I still have a job? (Our district might have to cut teachers and I'm near the bottom)
What will a day in our life look like?
Will we be going out one night a week, like I'm planning on now?
So in one year - November 11, 2011 - if I'm still around, I'll revisit these questions. If the baby lets me.
8 days until baby.
