Hat Trick

Crickets… I’ve heard them on the site too. A little unannounced communications blackout, if you will. Forgive me.

Vanessa and I are going to for kiddie hat trick. We’re expecting another little one adding to the fray at La Casa de Kraft, with an ETA of October 15th. It was too difficult to write about the joys and pitfalls of fatherhood, freelancing while at home, etc, without mentioning the upcoming addition.

For those keeping score at home, when our fourth anniversary rolls around in early October, we’ll have two kids plus one knocking on the door. We spent our first anniversary with a ~1-month old. Our second, Vanessa was pregnant with Catalina. Our third was “quiet” with Catalina being ~8-months old.

We didn’t plan our first girls, per se, but none of them were we planning not to have a kid either. Without going into detail, our basic approach has been when we discerned that we weren’t in the right place to have a child, we would hold off, but we’re not there.

Olivia doesn’t like the idea of the addition, but she’s not liking how fast Catalina is growing up either. Yesterday, she starting chastising Lina for pushing a doll stroller—”Lina! That’s dangerous! Only Mommy, Daddy and Olivia push it!” She’ll adjust though!

In the near-term, nothing else is changing. Vanessa will continue at SJD. I’ll continue to stay at home and freelance. Now that we’re able to share this now, we’ll return back to our scheduled programming.
