Itty Bitty

I had a dream I was going to have a baby.

I was really scared because it was going to hurt SO MUCH. My roommate (who had apparently just had one in the dream) said "Oh, Katie, yes it hurts like hell, but I know you can do this."

And I was still a little scared, but I believed her.

Weird how other people's faith in you can give you courage to keep trying sometimes.

You Heard It Here First

Within the next 5-10 years (or less), I am predicting an upsurge of little girls being given "grandma" names. Yep that's right: Hilda, Bertha, Gertrude, Betty, Helen, Winifred... As this generation of grandmas begins to die off (God rest their souls), those names, stripped of their geriatric connotations, will be freed up for the next generation.

It happened with "Emily" ten or fifteen years ago.
