Dear Ubu, I really hope you aren't getting sick - we have no money and the vet is expensive. You seem a little more lethargic than normal and you are coughing as if you have something stuck in your throat. Dear Little Man, dad was excited to feel you kick for the first time this week, I think you knew he was getting impatient wanting to feel you kick! Dear Spring, I know we live in Vermont and you don't always come when you are supposed to but my winter parka is getting a little tight and I'm not sure how much longer it will last. Dear Daycare Providers, we better find one of you that we like very soon or our little man will be coming to work with me after maternity leave in October. [ yes, we have called two dozen places and no one has infant care open for OCTOBER! either that or they are a little too sketchy ] Dear Husband, thank you for being strong and level-headed when my pregnancy hormones make me an irrational mess.
