Askew, aflutter, and awash

I'm nearly dizzy with delight today.

We made some family planning decisions last night, and my brain can barely focus on the smaller details of my daily grind as it tries to wrap itself around these huge things. I think I'll keep the specific details private at this time (I know! You're not used to that, are you?), but I am lost somewhere between excitement and terror as I think about what I want to do and how I want to take care of myself before it's time to start trying. My brain keeps saying, "This might be your last August 27 as a non-parent!" and "This could be the last Christmas before you turn in to 1/2 of Santa Claus!"

How do people do this?

As a parent for the last 5 years I must tell you, these have been the best 5 years of my life! Not that it's easy, because some days it's the hardest thing I have EVER done. But it's also the most rewarding. Congrats on this huge decision! As for being 1/2 of Santa, it's fabulous to see their little eyes light up on Christmas morning!
