    If he was the presidential candidate, he wouldn’t have run out of money already

    February 7, 2008

    When Maribel showed up yesterday at 5:30, The Husband was already up.  I couldn’t pry myself out of bed because I had been up most of the night with The Boy.  And the rest of the night I was up with The Baby.

    I heard them chatting downstairs.  Maribel was telling him about her two sons.  That one was going to the University.  I zoned back out and woke up a little later to pots and pans banging in the kitchen.  If you gotta wake up, waking up to the sound of someone cleaning your kitchen is the only way to go.  I went downstairs to give my “good mornings.”

    As we were chatting, she went on and on about how much the kids looked like The Husband.  How big and tall he was.  And handsome.  How he was so nice.  All of these things are true.  Then she told me that The Husband was very excited because I was going to get pregnant soon and we were going to have another baby.  This one would be a GIRL!!! 

    I felt like I was watching a political ad on t.v.  “Yes, we CAN!”

    Did I mention she was telling me all of this in Spanish?  My powers of comprehension are excellent.  My powers to speak are greatly limited.  Anyone know how to say “we’ll have another baby if he gets a uterus” in Spanish?

      Ha Ha!

      Oh, how I would love to wake up to the sound of someone cleaning my kitchen…or better yet making breakfast. And lunch. And dinner…

      Concebiramos si El obtiene un utero.

      My grammar is rusty but I think that’s close lol

      On a related note the phrase ‘reir a cacajardas” means to laugh out loud uncontrollably…work that into conversation.

      Are you sure she wasn’t saying that SHE was going to get pregnant soon & have a girl?? Or that Hubs dreamed you were going to have a girl?

      I don’t like predictions from sweet little old cleaning/church/hairdressers ladies …. they have a gnarly knack of coming true.

      My Daddy was in the Navy. He learned to say “Go piss up a rope!” in Spanish but I don’t think that would help in this situation. 😉
