Today is the last day of 2007. BAGM and I took our first big vacation this year after 8 years of being married so it must have been a special year.
Here are some of my best and worst moments:
Best: When she started smiling as soon as I come in the room for the night feedings.
Worst: Projectile spitting up during the mini-cold.
Best: The day Pookie and I stayed home and figured out how to pee in the potty. For some reason that was a day that made me feel like I have some kind of a grip on handling this parenting stuff.
Worst: The monster tantrum after their friend’s bowling birthday party. At least he apologized completely on his own at the end of it.
Best: Watching Geetle get excited watching the Hawkeyes on TV.
Worst: The day Geetle wound up in the emergency room when she fell into the car right in front of me. After all the times that I have caught her in the past, I still can’t believe I couldn’t catch her that time.
Best: The day we found out we were pregnant on our second to last possible IVF transfer.
Worst: Seeing BAGM being wheeled into the emergency room when the doors to the labor and delivery wing opened and not being able to go talk to her until I put on the hospital clothes and they decided whether I was even going to be allowed in during the delivery.
Here’s hoping for many fewer trips to the hospital in 2008.
