Someday I will transfer my stories into this file!

Sunday, April 15, 2001

Okay, this is my fourth attempt at this post. It seems to get shorter and shorter each time because I don't know if it is going to work! I hated leaving this morning without hugging and kissing you. You looked so sweet all tucked in your crib. A few years from now you will get to experience the excitement of the Easter bunny, and a few years after that, you may understand the true meaning of Easter. Still, I was very upset that I had to go to work and miss your very first Easter.

Hi Kayla -- I can't believe I have to work on Easter Sunday. If I were a better person I would say my dissapointment stems from my strong Christian beliefs. But alas, I'm simply sad that I will miss spending your very first Easter with you. I'm sure your dad will dress you up in something cute and parade you around to all of the relatives, but I'll be attending and writing about an Easter service at a church I don't even attend. I guess it goes with the profession, but I don't have to like it. I'll have to make sure I tell daddy to put you in the little bunny pajamas I got you at the Carter's store last month.
Dear Kayla -- I can't believe you are nearly six months old. Who would have known that your dad and I could have created such a little miracle. You are 17.5 pounds of pure joy. So we didn't sleep for the first three months of your life -- big deal. So my body will never be the same -- no problem. So our grocery bill is going to grow exponentially -- we'll handle it. I love you more than I ever thought was possible.

Be good. Be Safe. Stay healthy. I'll write more when I have more time. Love, Mom.
