I ripped open
the familiar Equate package,
having discarded the name brand tests
two kids ago.
No wordy proclamations
to herald the outcome with
but rather just a line to alter
the horizon of our future.
We were old friends, this box and I,
so I was startled by
The new pink plastic casing
in place of the usual purple.
That threw me off just a bit,
But not as much as
the result of the test.
I sought a second opinion
from the pink and white twin still
nestled in foil coat and cardboard home.
She sided with her sister,
I have been absent from this little online home of mine because Isaac is indeed
going to be a big brother in December, Lord willing. However, the little bean
has made me extremely sick as usual, and will continue to do so until I complete the first trimester. However, I miss writing, have recently gotten some medication to help with the sickness, and hope to return sooner rather than later.
