Dear Someday Baby,

As I expected, Christmas was pretty difficult this year.  I really thought you’d be here by now but not yet – I have to continue to wait.  

I keep thinking about how our world is going to change when you DO arrive.  We are not very prepared to be your parents!   At least not in the material sense.  

I have the next week off with no plans so I’ve decided to do something I’ve put off for several years.  I am going to paint your room!   It is going to be bright and cheery.   We may not have any furniture for you yet, but at least we’ll have a fresh space to offer you when you finally arrive.  Maybe once the room is painted I’ll get some inspiration and start looking around for furniture.

Love you already,
