Kids.

My cousin announced her pregnancy over the weekend.  After the usual YOO-HOO and WHOOPEE and OH MY GOODNESS I AM SO EXCITED I COULD EXPLODE (I didn’t have a chance to break into the jokes about champagne HAHA NOT FOR YOU, but give me time and I will) that come along with announcing a pregnancy, I realized that there’s something else that comes along with my friends and cousins and people-my-age-that-I’ve-known-forever having babies: disbelief.

Not bad disbelief or jealous disbelief or anything like that.  It’s happy disbelief.  Just.  Disbelief like WAIT A MINUTE, since when are you allowed to reproduce?  Aren’t you like six years old?  Didn’t I see you swinging on the monkey bars yesterday?  And weren’t you struggling with word problems just last week?

I wonder if this is what becoming a grandmother will feel like.

Speaking of six-year-olds?  I lost my camera for awhile and when I found it, I uploaded this picture from a couple months ago and couldn’t believe how grown-up my baby looks.  Maybe not six, but definitely not one.  I don’t know how, but I’ve really got to squish all this growing-up nonsense out of her.

    oh my goodness, I know what you mean about squishing the growing out. Dave keeps commenting on how Robin is turning into a little boy and I get all teary. He’s my baaaaaaaaaby, and he’s growing up way too fast. This sounds ridiculous, I know, but I can’t help it!

    I imagine it must be similar to that to find out your “baby” is having a baby.

    I’m with you on the squishing of the grown-up nonsense.  Last night I told Zack even when he was REALLY big he would still be my baby.  He seems to disagree.  :-)

    I know exactly what your talking about.  I swear I just blinked for a second and my sisters went from 12 to 31.  How does that happen?

    Just yesterday, my friend said her doctor told her it was time to start getting mammograms - and I’m like, “Oh yeah, tell me all about it I’m interested.“ And then I realized what I was saying and I said, “Wait. Since when did we get old enough to start talking about mammograms!“
