So last night while out for dinner at a local seafood restaurant wifey got a call from our friend, P, with the joyous news his wife, S, is pregnant. That makes 2 couples in our circle of friends who are about to enter the realm of parenthood.
Wifey was commenting on its bittersweet nature and her apprehensions that with children in the picture our friends will bond more with each other and less with us. I tried to put those fears of hers to rest reminding her how close we are with said friends and that while things will certainly be different, but we won't get "left behind" and when the time is right we'll be joining them in the realm of parenthood.
I have a feeling her maternal vibes are going to kick in big-time when we're visiting my brother and his family in Virginia this Thanksgiving. One of my nephews has an 8 month old and a 6 year old. We've booked our airfare for that trip already and even booked a hotel room for our first night there. We're planning on spending the day before Thanksgiving sightseeing in DC. Despite traveling the world over, she's never been to DC and I've not been there since the summer of 1993 with the Boy Sprouts of America.
