Since I Last Posted

* I’ve been putting in a lot of hours with a summer research/service project
* I taught myself how to make mojitos and had a rip-roaring Friday night home alone with the phone
* The Bear came home!!!!
* Our favorite restaurant changed its name which we deplore

Yesterday while waiting to meet friends for dinner I saw a man and woman walking down the street, pushing a stroller and a generous bump. As they got closer the red haze in front of my eyes dissipated as I realized that I know them (well, I know who they are – it’s a small town); their little girl in the stroller has Downs. Which makes me feel like they’ve “earned” their current bump, so it’s “ok”. What a twisted way to think/feel.

    It is interesting how we come to believe that bumps must be earned, either with fertility treatment or other hardship.

    Now that you know how to make the basic mojito, you could have fun with it by adding different twists. Try the lychee mojito, yum!

    I wish we could “earn” our bumps. I guess earning it would be too easy.

    Exactly. I often feel twisted (as in all twisted up inside) when seeing babies and pregnant women.
