QUADRIVIUM

Have you come here to play Jesus to the lepers in your head?

Smells like Pooh

Sorry—I couldn’t resist.

Had our third appointment with the doctor today; baby’s heartbeat is 165 beats per minute and doing fine. We commemorated this by searching out a particular bedding pattern my wife found on the internet yesterday in the design of Winnie the Pooh.

I can’t say that I have a preference as to how the baby’s room will look. I just don’t want it to look like something in the vein of Barney, or any other annoying Saturday morning creature. The Pooh bear I can live with. He got the nod when my wife discovered a pattern that came in burgundies and greens—the color scheme of the rest of the house—proving once more her greater aptitude in interior design. Undoubtedly, the baby will gain his/her sense of style from mom.

We should know the sex sometime after Christmas. There are two reasons for knowing in advance: one, it takes the guess work out of baby showers, and two, we can drop the compulsion to dance around pronouns.

Which means that the child’s love (or disdain) of words will come from me.
