Positively Positive

Posted on Apr 17, 2013 by in Family | 4 comments

I ripped open

the familiar Equate package,

having discarded the name brand tests

two kids ago.

No wordy proclamations

to herald the outcome with

needless verbosity,

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,

pinkly positive.

He’s going to be a big brother!

He has a secret.

Dear friends,

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.
