the first two weeks






Once upon a time there lived a girl named Whimsy who met the creamiest boy ever to roam the planet - and he was yummy like chocolate milk and they decided that they would build a little creamy palace together. And so they did. And their life together was blissful and funny and sometimes full of the types of peril that makes a person grow. One day they looked at each other and said, Maybe it's time. Their little home that had felt so full seemed to need Someone Else. So Whimsy and the Creamiest Boy started on a Project to create the Creamiest Baby. And time passed. It wasn't the easiest nine months. There were some very sad times, and also some very happy times. And finally after nine months of waiting and wishing and dreaming of the little creamy baby they had come to call the Bean, it was time for Whimsy and the Creamiest Boy to meet Alice Faye. It was absolute love at first sight. And even though there were days in the beginning when Whimsy felt that she couldn't possibly have the capacity to care for little Alice, there were amazing and gifted friends and family who told her YES YOU CAN. And Alice proved to be the absolute BEST BABY ON THE PLANET. After a couple of weeks, Whimsy realized that she and Alice were going to make it just fine. And the little creamy palace sighed the kind of sigh you make after you've eaten a very large and yummy piece of buttery vanilla cake because it was full to the rafters with love.

And the Creamiest Boy is really the Best Husband in the World, without question.

I've been missing you too.

Burnstopia is positively bereft with out you...

And those pictures? Alice?! She's so pretty--how are you not blinded by her pretty-ness?

I'm so proud of you, I knew you'd be a great mom and that everything would work out...and it is. It may not be easy--in fact, I'd wager that it won't ever be easy, but look at how beautiful it is.

Congratulations again - so happy for you!

What a lovely story. After the dust settles and you have some free time :) - you should consider writing a children's book. You have a magical way of describing things.
