Last Tuesday, we had a scare with Claire’s pregnancy where we thought we lost the baby. Thankfully, everything is OK. We found out that Claire has something called placenta previa. Because it is still early in her pregnancy, the doctors are hopeful it will take care of itself as the pregnancy goes on. The pregnancy and deliveries of our 2 sons were relatively smooth and problem free. This past week, we were introduced to the reality of the challenges and difficulties of pregnancies.
The frequency (or lack there of) of updates to this blog is another reality. It always good to have goals at the start of the new year. The goal of keeping the blog updated every other day was a little ambitious. The reality of everyday life with 2 kids and 1 on the way is probably going to curb the posts to Toon-Time down to 1 or 2 a week.
As I write this post, I’m watching the inauguration of Barack Obama. I hope that he can bring change and get this country back on track. However, I can’t even begin to imagine the reality that is going to hit him tomorrow.
