This morning we were very happy to learn
that we are the parents of two American girls
and two Kiwi boys.
At least Richard and I were very happy to learn this.
Maria burst into tears right there in the sonographer's office
and begged the tech to check and see if maybe there was
another baby in there who was a girl baby.
Alas. There was just the one.
A little (pre-lunch) celebratory trip to the ice cream store
soon put a smile back on Maria's face.
Richard didn't need any ice cream -
what he will need is something to wipe the
off his face.
I think the plane trip on Wednesday should do just the trick.
