One more thing…

Oh yeah, everybody! My sister is pregnant. I was sworn to secrecy for so many months that when I was finally able to spill the beans, I forgot. She’s due in early May, and it’s a little boy. R will be so glad to have a little boy cousin to play with!

My sister is closer to me than most other people in the world, Dave and R excluded. She is the reason I want R to have a sibling. Lisa and I share a common past, a history. We are 17 months apart and neither of us has a memory without the other. I think that is so important for people to have, and I want R to share in the challenges and joys of having a sibling.

Lisa never thought she’d be a mom, but when she took a job working with kids, she grew to realize she did have that nurturing instinct. Despite her tough-girl exterior, she was amazing with those kids, so patient and so involved. And she will be an amazing mother.

    My sister is my best friend, we are 2 years apart. I feel the same way about Nathan, I can only hope he is as lucky to have someone he is that close to.
    Do you live near eachother?
