There has never been a decent picture of the two of us.
Stacey has been my friend since 7th grade. We met a few weeks into the school year, and that very day we pushed our desks together and started scheming. We were going to build a go-cart and bake a 6 tier cake. We bought candy by the bagful and ate in class, hopped hay bails and flew kites all summer...blew up 3 bags of water balloons and released them on the neighbor's lawn, and nearly burnt down his bush while roasting marshmallows.
When I called her to tell her that I was pregnant, she simply said: "Funny you should say that, because I was just at the doctor, and..."
And now, she has a little boy to play with my little boy.
I wonder what kind of mischief they will get into together.
I can't wait to find out.
* Doesn't it look like we somehow switched babies? I always thought that if I had a child, my child would be blonde and blue eyed, and that she would have the dark, swarthy child. Go figure.
