My son came home from school a few weeks ago with the news that his teacher's wife was about to have a baby. I turned on him like he had just told me he was flunking out of 7th grade. "What do you mean?" "He just told you?" "When is she due?" "Boy or Girl?" Poor kid. He just doesn't understand the effect those words have on me. My fingers begin to twitch. My brain goes into inventory stash mode. My heart skips a beat.
Late last week he casually mentioned the baby had been born. A girl.
So this weekend I took a little break from my endless black stockinette..
