happy mother's day

A shout out to all the great moms -- first of course to MY mom, who is, naturally the First and Ultimate mom, specifically for managing to raise me without resorting to infanticide.
Second is my other mom, Auntie Em, for often being the anti-mom; letting me stay up late and eat too much crap and spend my money unwisely. Third is Hiroko's mom, who has proven that whether Japanese from the rice fields or Jewish from
Brooklyn, all moms are really just moms.

And finally, happy mother's day to the new mother: Hiroko is 11 weeks pregnant. Dunno if it's a boy or a girl yet, so we've nicknamed the little alien Tonchan (ton is the kanji for piggy). Tonchan was recently spotted waving and breakdancing inside the womb, and Hiroko has serious cravings for broccoli and potatoes.
Anyone with any child-support paraphernalia (toys, clothes, wooden train sets, XBOX360, PS3, etc.) feel free to donate! Due date is December 6!

Well, it's about time! Congrats!!!
Keiran is excited to be a crazy American cousin :-)
...and could you tell her to wait until Dec 21st? Just cause it would be cool if your boy/girl/piggy had the same birthday as me!
Congrats again!!! So Keiran and I have about 7 months to really learn Japanese and save up for the plane tickets :-)
