That La Kid

wishin' an' hopin'!

who? me?

Just about everyone I’ve told has said, “you guys are going to be great parents!”  I can’t figure it out… do these people KNOW us at all?

I think we’re going to be parents.  Period.  Well, Tom’s pretty awesome.  Tom’ll probably be a great dad, but so far, I’m one terrified, no-freakin-clue-what-the-heck-I’m-doing mom.  What do they see that I don’t see?  Sure, I’m funny… but I’m also inherently lazy.  The house is a wreck.  Our lease is up in just over a month and we’ve got no place to go.  This kid doesn’t have a bedroom or anything.  (Although it does have clothes, toys, and about 10 diapers.)

I guess we’ve got a little bit of time.  We’re trying to stockpile all of our cash until everyone is home safe and sound from the hospital.  We had been doing Dave Ramsey’s baby steps, but everything is on hold to stockpile cash for the next 6 months or so.  Trying.  We had a good amount piled up – not enough to cover a catastrophe, but a good start – but then Uncle Sam took just about all of it.  I’m not bitter, I’m proud that we made so much money that WE owed HIM.  And next year we’ll get to take advantage of another deduction.  🙂
