How is it that after FIVE years of waiting I still feel giddy, and nervous, and surprised, and unprepared for our new son like I did the last weeks of pregnancy with my kids? I could have given birth to at least 5 children in this time or 2 1/2 elephants or 1,852 mice. Now that puts it all in perspective. Who knew I'd give birth to a 7 year old. =) and a boy =) at age 45...YIKES!
So yesterday I spent time removing photoalbums from the scrapbooking room and putting all the old childrens books back on the shelf. Good thing I kept them huh??? Finally, my lack of purging pays off. YES!
In the meantime I'm stopping by my computer once in a while to try to learn a tad more mandarin. HA! My lack of listening skills is rearing it's ugly head. Visually I am doing much better at looking at the symbols and seeing a connection. But, hearing it is another issue.
