“How do you think we’re doing so far?”

“Ok. I wish Maya made a little less poop, honestly.”


“What? No?”

“No. Do not.”

“You want more?”

“No. The last time you wished for something, you wished for smallish, kind of aerodynamic baby and a quick, reasonably painless birth. What we got was a seven pound, ten ounce kid by crash C-section and a terrifying four-day hospital stay.”

“Oh, yeah.”

“Please do not make any wishes about poop.”

    We’re going to see a lot of really adorable baby pictures, aren’t we?

    No more wishes for you.

    A belated congratulations. (I’ve had my head in the sand for the past week or so, apparently.)

    Enjoy Maya. She’s lovely. Can’t wait to meet her!
