Big Sister School

Yesterday morning I skipped my hockey game to go to the local hospital for “Sibling Preparedness Class” for my daughter. I’m really glad I did.

First of all, it was interesting to go into the hospital and up to Labor and Delivery. In fact, I got a little emotional going up there. In a month or so, we’ll be going up there again and when we come home we will be a family of four instead of three.

The class itself was very good. My daughter got to hold a baby doll (something she isn’t usually into) and give it a bath, dress it, put on a diaper, etc. She liked the baby so much, after the class we went and bought her one for home. Anything to get her into the whole new baby thing is a plus for us.

Saturday afternoon, I went to this massive antique store in town. It was once an old movie theater and now houses floors and floors of antiques. I have my eye on a really cool old black Royal typewriter that they had for sale for only $20. I don’t even know if it works. If I still had a dedicated writing room and desk I would totally buy the thing. As it is, we have nowhere to put it. *sigh*

Anyhow, that’s been my weekend. We also had a lovely time celebrating my wife’s birthday. I’m not looking forward to going to work tomorrow.
