One of my dearest friends, Lady G., just told me she's having a baby girl.
My synapses immediately spiraled into sugar plum thoughts of pretty hairbows, dresses with petticoats, little pantaloons covered with ruffles on the bum, and pink monograms galore.
I literally squealed out loud when she told me. My coworkers probably thought I was having a pig roast in my corner of the newsroom.
I am so anxious for that period in my life when I get to have children. It's really quite a blessing I don't think God is ready to give me, probably because I'm not ready, myself.
But until that time, I will shower all my affection and cravings to buy baby clothes on my friends' children.
And as the wonderful Aunt Kate, I get to hug and hold a baby as much as I want. And when she starts throwing up pea soup or screeches a high decibel scream, I get to hand her back to Mommy :)
