Then there was The Big Little... TBL shocked the hell out of us by almost arriving in the car on the frantic race to L&D mere hours before a nice, calm, scheduled c-section.
The wigglers amazed and awed us all by taking this new addition completely in stride. They love having a baby sister to kiss and pat and to try and force-feed Goldfish to when mommy isn't looking... (oh Sprinkles) *sigh* In fact, Sass Monkey is completely enamored of TBL. So much so that when TBL was only 3 weeks old, he came around the corner of the living room (where I had just left them moments before) into the kitchen carrying her and proclaiming that he was her big brother and he was going to "learn her things"... That was a good 5 years of my life and several new gray hairs. Don't worry about her either. She's fine.
(Don't the Chinese have curse that goes something like "May you live in interesting times..."? Yeah... *ahem*)
But despite the moments that have had Hubbs and I clutching our chests and reaching for the Bayer there have been so many more achingly wonderful ones. Our baby's first cry, Sprinkles first night in her big girl bed, Sass's first joke with an actual punchline... I could go on and on but you didn't come here for mush, now did you?
I thought not...
How about some big news? No, no... not that. I got mah self spade but how about... (drumroll please)... I quit my job.
I did. (*gulp*)
And now all 3 wigglers are at home with me. I know. The girl who has worked somewhere doing something since she was a senior in high school, the PWM, the girl who swore she never would EVER... is now a SAHM. It's enough to make you mess yer britches... but then so was the daycare bill for 3 wigglers.
So, here begins a new chapter. Light a candle for me. Hell, light one for us all...
Oh sh*t. There are 3 of them.
