I love sending Christmas cards. I love sitting down, addressing them, writing in each one…but not this year. While you will not receive a card from me this year, I do hope to stay on your lists, as I love receiving them. I’m sure you know what is different this year….
From the moment I knew I was due in November, I knew exactly what pictures would be on my Christmas card this year would look like. I would buy one of these outfits for Lucy to wear, while lying on a red tree skirt under our tree:
I would take her to see Santa (first thing in the morning, before other kids got to him, and after he thoroughly Purell’d)….there would be a sweet picture like this:
Lastly, there would be a pic of her being held by my amazing Reproductive Endocrinologist, who has spent 4 years helping make this dream come true.
So the act of buying generic cards, addressing them, and signing just my name in each one….well, that is too much for me right now.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanzaa, Peaceful Winter Solstice, Happy New Year and anything other observance I may be forgetting.
