The year that was

January 3, 2008 at 5:26 pm (General)

The milliner sent out a one of those letters, letting everyone catch up on our lives in the past year. I can’t help but think of the Simpsons’ episode, when Marge writes about the doings of all the family members and, when she gets to Bart, simply writes, “Well, we love Bart.” And nothing more.
Regardless, here goes:

And why did I start knitting? Why, for the little (most likely) redhead who’ll be joining our menagerie in June.
I swear, I do not know how much of this I can take.

    Congrats. I didn’t know. And welcome to the rollercoaster that is parenting. If you need any pointers, I’m fresh off the boat. Actually we’re still on it.

    Here’s my biggest tip for new fathers. When changing a diaper, put a fresh diaper under the baby before you start removing the soiled one. It helps avoid making a mess if there is a mess to be made.

    Cool. The world needs more redheads.

    What is this “changing a diaper” of which you speak?

  10. Frank said,

    Maybe you can knit one?
