Q. What do you get when you cross a pastoral intern and a hairstylist?
A. Well, duh.
Yes, Faith and I are expecting a little one to arrive in August. That is to say Faith is pretty pregnant. And she’s just plain pretty too, but that’s not new news.
Here are some other ways that we could have broken the news….
Q. What’s barefoot and pregnant?
A. Not Faith, she’s got tons of shoes.
Q. What is Faith’s favorite brand of spaghetti sauce?
Q. Did you know that the Reverend Mother is going to have a new nickname?
A. Yea, the Reverend Grandmother.
Q. How grand is the Nightwriter?
A. He’s not half-bad, but just you wait until August!
We found out in November and have been slowly rolling out the announcement to family, to church folks and so on. We decided to make you all wait until New Year’s Eve for the sake of tradition.
We are both thrilled. We are only dimly aware of how huge this is going to be. We will certainly need help. That help might come from different quarters, but it sure doesn’t hurt to already be living with one set of doting grandparents. Sure, there won’t be a lot of room in the house, but there will be babysitters aplenty and love overflowing (not to mention diapers.)
