I confess that I asked Sara the other day how old she thought I was. She thought for a moment and said "65?" - "NO, that's how old Grandma is!" - "OK, then maybe you're like 50?" I stopped the conversation at that point...
I confess that I PVRed the final episode of Hannah Montana so we (OK fine, so "I") wouldn't miss it. When Sara and I were watching, Sara got bored halfway through and went to her room to play. I kept calling to her "Sara, come back and finish watching!" - because sitting with a six-year-old and enjoying a children's show just seems much better than watching it alone.
I confess that our refrigerator has become the "Shrine of Seth" over the passed few months. I literally have no more magnets to hold up his pictures. Sara said the other day "We're going to take those down when Seth comes home, right? We keep ALL those on the fridge only because he is not home yet, right mom?"
I confess that Sara was looking through her "birds and bees" book, called "It's Not the Stork" (great book by the way), the other day and said "Look at this, I know that is the testicles" as she pointed with confidence to the umbilical cord of the newborn??? Clearly her brother is not home yet. I think I should probably read that book WITH her again.
I confess that I can't stand it when parents call genitals by nicknames. A nose is a nose. An arm is an arm. A toe is a toe. And a vagina is a vagina. What the hell is a foo-foo, front bum, pee-pee, too-too, hoo-ha, wee-wee, la-la, ya-ya, ding-ding, nu-nu, pee-wee, cha-cha, whoo-whoo, etc... Come on people, seriously, read these names and tell me they don't sound absolutely ridiculous. V-A-G-I-N-A and P-E-N-I-S, say it with me, they aren't bad words.
I confess that we were told this week that things are looking "positive"... yet a WHOLE batch of families have just passed us by yet AGAIN. I just want to cry.
I confess that Seth's update pictures should be coming today or Monday. YIPPEE!!!!
I confess that I'm becoming a little bored with blogging lately. I'm just feeling kind of blah and don't have much adoption news to talk about these days - well, I guess I could go on and on and on about the continuous and agonizing waiting and unknowns, but I'm not here to torture you.
I confess that everyone needs to check out my fellow bloggers new website Adoption Magazine. It is an online source for information, support, and encouragement to those whose lives have been touched by adoption. AND keep an eye out, a few of my posts will be featured in the magazine too!
I confess that I LOVE Keen shoes. I have had one pair of shoes for a while and just got a new pair of sandals for my birthday and I am itching to wear them this summer. These are two pairs that I have.
