Really, how do you answer that question? This baby is coming, I’ve known about it for a few months now, and I’ve been pretty deliberate in my preparations.
But ‘ready’? Yes, inasmuch as I’ve done everything I could think of to make myself so. But really, no, because no one ever really is.
Maybe that’s just one of those not actually polite questions people ask to be conversational. Like ‘how are you’ from a complete stranger. There is no real answer, just something that requires a polite nod.
Do I sound cynical? I don’t mean to. Just reflecting on a particularly awkward bit of dialogue that occurred today.
Actually, maybe I am ready. I’ve got a whole lot of wiggly baby in my belly that I really can’t wait to meet.
