we’re getting a roommate!

roommate wanted

Well, it’s a crazy thing to do, especially at this age, and especially after not having any for so long, but we are getting a roommate!

We don’t know much about him yet, but here’s what we do know:

  • He’s moving in some time around Christmas.
  • He promises to not take up too much space, at least at first.
  • He will not be cleaning up after himself.
  • He guarantees that he is going to be loud and keep us up at night as much as possible.
  • We were not able to get any references on him but we do have a pretty solid lock on his DNA.

That’s right: Rob and I are having a baby!

Are we thrilled? Yes. Are we terrified? You bet. Are we having fun decorating his little corner of the world with modern, funky cuteness? Indeed.

  1. Yay!!! You guys are going to be awesome parents! I can’t wait to meet him and see his funky new digs. Rob, you’re shrinking…you look great!

    • ha ha! Well, the interview process was interesting because he really is a man of few words. We just had to go with our gut, have a lot of faith, and trust that it would work out. I will say that he failed the credit check miserably 🙂

  2. You are good… I mean really GOOD… to keep a secret like that for so long!!! Baby, oh baby, that is exciting and FANTASTIC news. Congrats to you both. That is one lucky kid!
    Let the modern, funky, cuteness BEGIN! (that includes him, of course…)

    • Thank you so much Stacey! Yup, this wasn’t easy to keep under wraps – but at first I was paranoid something might happen, then I was a little shy…and recently, well, it started to seem weird to NOT share the news. I finally “came out” on facebook too. I have a feeling we’re about to get our worlds rocked by this little dude. 🙂

  3. Obviously we need to get together and catch up! So happy for both of you! And you look adorable:) Christmas is SoOOOOONNNN!! The gnomes will be jealous.

    • Ha ha, thank you Jen. Yes, we have been trying to figure out how to break this news to the gnomes…we realize that there may be some acting out and some temper tantrums, so we are trying to brace ourselves 🙂

  4. Oh my goodness!!! Congrats on your little roommate!! I know of at least 4 people having a baby at the end of Dec and the beginning of Jan. There must be something in the water.

    I can’t wait to see how you decorate his little corner of the world.

    • Yes, we know of a lot of babies on the way in Dec as well – there must have been something in the water in March – maybe it was the leprechans 🙂 You KNOW I’ll be doing a blog on the nursery…we still need a few finishing touches…

  5. I want to read the lease. Did it already start? I think as landlord you have a case that he has already been occupying the space, (whether he signed anything or not) and if he hasn’t paid anything yet, you should definitely be able to serve him with back rent, late fees, administrative charges, etc. This really is for his benefit – isn’t it best that he gets an idea of the way the real estate market works early on? My retirement plan is a running tab that I plan to present to the little squatters I have on my property when they turn 25. I will never have to work again.

    • Yes, I couldn’t agree more with all of this. We asked him to sign a lease but he claimed that he cannot write yet. All we got was some hiccups and a few spastic punches and kicks – I interpreted this as a rental agreement.

  6. This little guy is very lucky to have you as parents. No doubt he will be handsome and clever too. I can’t wait to meet him.

  7. Such wonderful news, you’re creating a miracle ! I know of a lovely birthday on the 30th (mine) and, another on Epiphany (the 6th, my husband’s). I am partial to the 31st though as then, there’s always someone who’ll party with you 😉 As for lawn mowing, haven’t done one yet and I will be 4? soon … sorry about that. Ours is 7 and we love her more everyday. Beyond happy for you all.

    • Thanks Suzanne! Of course, it hasn’t seemed short from this end…but am attempting to occasionally think about/talk about/write about things other than bebe. We’ll see how much longer that lasts 🙂
