I think I’m nervous about you guys meeting me. I don’t know how much you can tell from in there, but I am not going to be the perfect mom you have been dreaming about. You guys dream, right? I think so. I’m impatient, and I’m stubborn, and uh, stole an Abba-Zabba bar from the grocery store in fourth grade, and I’m terrified that I’m going to make a hundred wrong decisions to keep you guys from living the perfect lives that you deserve, but I will protect you fiercely, and I will always sing to you when you can’t sleep, and I will always be excited to hear you laugh. I bet you guys are gonna have wildly different laughs, huh? I love you guys so much and I haven’t even met you yet. It’s crazy. So I guess what I’m trying to say, is um, you are gonna have to take the good with the bad when it comes to me. So now that you know all this, are you still excited to come join us, huh?
