New Edition (minus Bobby Brown - he's trouble)
Our family has now increased in number by 33%. Mass increase is approximately 2% even though the bugger was nearly 9 lbs at birth. Life as I previously knew it meant that I occasionally did some soul-searching and self-critique or pondered the current political climate or the future of the human race. Now my thoughts are consumed by a 3-year-old and a 2-week old. My reading material in the last 2 weeks has included the daily horoscopes (at the request of the 3-year-old) and whatever has happened to be sitting next to the toilet (I've read the same article on cacti in Horticulture magazine 3 times and have yet to determine why anyone would cultivate the little beasts). I also read the letters to the editor in Sports Illustrated this week, but does that count? I think not, considering I hadn't read any of the articles to which they were referring. It was like hearing half of a phone conversation. Which is also like my intake of current events: I watch the news on mute as I'm nursing the baby in the middle of the night. Does this sound like complaining? It's not meant to... it should sound more like whining, because that's what I feel like doing. Please will someone call me up so I can talk about how sore my private parts are using grotesque and personal details in a very whiny voice? How's that for an invitation?
