Making Room

When over-friendly workmates asked when we were having babies, I used to make a lot of jokes.  Mostly along the lines of “If we had a baby, she’d have to sleep under my computer desk!”

So um, now that we’re pregnant, it doesn’t seem quite so funny.  We live in a granny flat, which has been a lovely, cottagy, cosy love nest for two.  There is room for three bicycles and unicycle (mostly Ryan’s), many many books (mostly mine) and a comprehensive collection of hiking and climbing gear (collective).  Plus some belly dance props.

But no room for a baby.

When Jamie asked what I wished to make room for, there was only one answer. I can’t frame this well as a wish, so here’s what I’m telling my tummy:

Dear Baby,

We’ve found a lovely house for us to live in.  It’s further away than we live now, but it will have everything we need to make a home – that’s you, and me, and Ryan.  While you’re busy growing, we’ll be busy getting it ready for you.

Please help me wish for the time and the love and the things to make a home that hugs us all.

    I lived in a teeny one bedroom apartment when I had my baby. I had a crib in my bedroom, a change table in the kitchen, and a baby swing in the livingroom. lol

  20. Hi, Kazari. This reminds me of when Margaret was pregnant with our elder daughter. We lived in a tiny, attic apartment, and we ended up moving to a larger apartment in a smaller town, tens of miles away. It was a big change in our life, but a vibrant one as well. Best wishes on your coming child!
