It turns out, almost fainting is a great way to meet
We've decided that the babies will have a nursery in what is now my office and I'm looking forward to having, for the first time, a space to nest, decorate, fold clothes. When Archer and Fable were born they shared a room with us, which was wonderful and totally cozy, but I always secretly wished I had a little space to prepare for my babies. Now I do. Even if it means rearranging the house to find a new place for my workspace, I'll have my first nest.
Slowly, I've reconnected with some of the maternity clothes I handed off to friends and family over the years - the pants I married Hal wearing, the shirt I wore to the doctor when I found out Fable was a girl, jeans I wore to the hospital, to give birth to Archer... And yet, I can't bring myself to wear any of them. It's the strangest feeling, like stepping into the past, a past I treasure OF COURSE, but am also so relieved to have put behind me.
I'll stick to leggings and tunics for now.
The other day Archer and Fable appeared with red and purple marker all over their faces and these grins the size of life, and I thought to myself, "partners in crime!" Later it struck me that the same thing is happening INSIDE me right now: A mischievous partnership is forming. Like Archer and Fable with different markers. Miraculous stuff.
