I finish work in less than two weeks, leave Glasgow in five weeks and move to Maryland in August. It's all becoming a bit real and, as a consequence, I find myself thinking about lots of things. You would think they were big, life changing things... but no... here's a random delve into the questions which I find floating around my head:
Who will cut my hair?
Do people hang their washing outside?
Will Thomas call me Mom?
Will David revert to his pseudo-American accent?
What washing powder is most similar to Persil?
Shall I get a dog?
What is the equivalent to Burts Bees?
How can I play Scrabble online when the Facebook version doesn’t work?
Will an Ikea sofa be comfortable?
How many BBQs are acceptable when it’s sunny every single day in the summer…?
Should I change my ideas for baby names to ones more appropriate for the US? After all, Thomas was number 63 in the US boy chart last year, compared to 3 in the UK chart. Maybe I should be thinking more along the lines of Chuck, Tyler, Harrison... [forgive the lack of girl names, I'm convinced I'm having another boy!].
If anyone has the answer to these questions, or have any slightly more important questions they feel I should be asking, please let me know!
Also, here are just a couple of photos of my beautiful boy :)
