Laugh or cry?

I had my annual girl exam yesterday. The receptionist, married a year or so ago, looked a little more rubenesque than I remembered; she was sitting, so I couldn't be sure. There on her desk was the ultrasound picture.
"Yes, that's mine," she confirmed.
"And what is this baby's name?"
"Carter," she responded with pride.
"Not after Jimmy, right?" I said in jest.
"Who?" she said sincerely.

And some folks wonder why we're homeschooling.

Blech...Canuck and I are already talking about homeschooling if we can't afford a Catholic school a la Spiritus Sanctus...that's just one more reason...

What part of the country are you living in?

How old are you both?

When this economy really tanks you will be pro school because the government will be falling apart....

I'd really like to know how we get to pro school when the government falls apart... and what age has to do with that.

Catherine--Age or geographic location.
Let me just say--if you've got unemployment in Florida, we have you beat.
