An Announcement

Yes, I am a feeble idiot who is overwhelmed by the task of caring for two children for three days. (Three! Whole! Days!) (Alone!)

Here is my excuse for being such a big baby: I was also nauseous and exhausted the whole time.

It seems I have a uterine growth. It currently measures about 35 mm, but we expect its size will increase rapidly until August - at which time it will expel itself or be surgically removed.

We are excited.

Also terrified.

But mostly excited.

(Not really. We’re mostly terrified)

Holy Gamoly! A friend told me the other day that "three was the new two" and I laughed and laughed and laughed.

Woo Hoo!

It's like I told Beth about nine months ago, if you hang out with me and I like drinking with you you are about to get pregnant.

Look out MAW.

Now you will be outnumbered!

Julie said...

Apparently I need to drink more coffee, because I had to read this three times before I understood why you would be excited about a uterine growth.

Now that I am caught up with all the regular people, congratulations! And, um, being outnumbered by your kids is totally easy and nothing to be scared about at all. [Insert maniacal laughter here.]

Beth Fish said...

Hope you enjoyed the beer while it lasted.

Congratulations!

Jill said...

Ha-Ha, I'm laughin' at you. But only because I'm so used to people laughing at me with my too many kids. Congratulations!

Congrats! And good luck. August in DC + 9 months pregnant = suckitude.

(Maybe I need to start drinking with Sarah more...)

Holy Crap! (in a good way)

For someone who likes to drink as much as you, you sure have put yourself in the position of not being able to very much over the past few years.

Molly said...

Congrats! And I echo what Merseydoats said about 9 months pregnant in D.C. in August. Boo.

And also what she said about drinking with G.S. Sarah.

Michele said...

Holy S! Congratulations!

Wow! Time to switch from man-to-man to zone defense.
(Having 3 is great. Truly.)

No more happy hours for a while. That's tragic.

Congratulations regardless! (Maybe now's the time to start training Lumpyhead in the art of changing nappies...)

mo-wo said...

I guess it has taken me a week to process? Or perhaps just to move my fingers in some manner of unison to say...

Congratulations.

Bump really puts the bump back in bump if my guess is right.
