So today has been a good day. I had some news I wanted to share with my family so naturally I called my mother. She of course didn't answer so I called my sister Carlie who always has as much enthusiasm, and always knows where my mother is so I'll know where I can find her at later. Well I called to let my family know that my ultrasound went well and that I'm expecting a boy! Yes a boy. Which most of you know because I sent out a mass text. The ultrasound went well and even I could recognize the little penis! Chuck and I reminised over the time my sister asked me to set her baby down and not realizing 3 mo. olds don't sit on their own it plopped over and banged it's head. This was only a month ago so the embarresment is still quite fresh. That's not as bad as the time I forgot I was babysitting and left her baby in the crib to go get lunch with my brother. My other sister Katie reminded me of this today. So at the doctor's office Chuck and I were joking about how when our baby is born we won't know what he's capable of. "Hey go get yourself some cereal! Have you eaten yet? Baby! Answer me! Baby!"
Anyway I was so excited I completely ignored the fact that Carlie was barely breathing and yelling at her daughter Halle to hurry. My curiousity got the better of me and I finally asked what she was doing. "I'm chasing Santa." I let her go and left Santa to who knows what fate.
I think now would be a good time to remind everyone to take a step back and enjoy the spirit of Christmas. Appreciate family all that we've been given, or you could end up like Carlie, chasing Santa this Christmas.
