Today I met the most fascinating little person, little A., who just made her debut yesterday. She is modeling her very first handknit hat here, and quite adorably as well. I can't wait to get to know her better. And as her aunt, I get the fun job. I don't have to worry about whether she eats her peas or puts her socks on backwards or finishes her calculus homework before TV, I get to take her shopping and teach her to ride a pony and tell her which boys to avoid (pretty much all of them, but at least we have a while). Although I'm sure she'll have even more interesting things to teach me as time goes by.
So happy birthday, A., and welcome to the world. We're awfully glad you're here :)
I'm a hospice nurse case manager, after I spent five years as a critical care nurse in a bone marrow transplant and oncology unit. I'm trying to re-join the dayshift world, cook 660 curries, plant vegetables, and see more of the world.
