Ms. T has a secret...

Sorry for the delay in posts but its been quite a bit of a start to 2010. Shortly after the calendars changed, my family experienced the loss of a family member very unexpectedly back home in Canada. It has been a bit of a trying time but we are making slow progress getting back to normal.

One thing I've noticed that nevers stops despite the rest of the world turning upside down is the laundry just never stops growing.

Anyways, back to the entry.

When I was a little kid, my paternal grandmother (her name was Millicent; you'll get the connection in a minute) gave me a book. It was called Millicent Has A Secret. (I think she was secretly excited to have found a book with her name in the title, who wouldn't?)

In the book, Millie went through her neighbourhood like a pied piper, telling every child she met that she had a secret. And if they wanted to know what the secret was, they had to follow Millie. So that's what all the kids did. What kid doesn't want to know a secret right?

The secret turned out to be that Millie's cat was having kittens. Isn't that a nice surprise?

Ms. T has a surprise too! Can you guess what it is?
Sorry, no we aren't moving back to Canada despite folks' comments that it was time for us to move home.

No, we didn't get another new car and are not moving.
And no, S is still employed and working crazy hours at work.
No, no, we aren't being transferred to France, although that would be nice too!

I'm going to have to change the name of this blog to be Canuck Kittenz in Kansas! Yes, Ms. T will be joined sometime in June by a new sibling who is currently kicking its mother!

Our due date is June 23rd, but we will likely have this one a little earlier by the same method as T. Seeing as we have to import grandparental assistance, it makes easier to know ahead of time when we need the help to arrive. Its also safer given we've already been down that path with T because of her short cord/breech presentation. And well, we know what to expect from that method of delivery in terms of recovery.

True to toddler/preschooler behaviour, the nice picture (above) is blurred but the 'yo, yo I'm kicking it old school' picture (below) is focused and clear. Go figure!

While T hasn't completely come around to the whole idea of what a new sibling means, she will get there. At least once a day, she asks me if there is a baby in my tummy. When she gets the affirmative answer, she gets all pouty and says the baby needs to go home. When I remind her that the baby will come live with us, she gets kinda excited then all needy/whiny. June should prove interesting!

The cats have been uber lovely dovey with me like last time and I think they have a pretty good idea of what is about to befall them again. Time will tell if Gryffin does his 'ignore the small screaming creature and sulk in the bedroom routine' until its 2 years old and if Phenix will be a furry little walking baby monitor that she was with T.
