At school on Thursday, Stephanie came up to me and informed me that Carter will be a rat. Right about now you're thinking, "What? How could you say such a thing?" Sounds unpleasant, I know, but the kids were studying the Chinese New Year. This is the Year of the Rat. So, Carter will be one. Those born in the Year of the Rat are said to be clever, ambitious, creative, hard-working, fastidious, charming and sociable. So, who wouldn't want to be a rat? Or be friends with a rat?
Carter is due today. Hurry up, little baby. We are waiting for you! Stephanie and Heather are anxious for their new cousin!
