I do...

A big day this afternoon in our wee world. Off to court for me to legally adopt the WeeOne.

Months and months of paper work and waiting and $$$ have slowly passed us by...

We were lucky to have some of our closest friends along to support us, who helped shed a tear or two on the occasion.

I've never been in a court of law to place my left hand on the Bible and raise the right to swear that I'll tell only the truth, but luckily the judge excused me from raising the right, as I had the WeeOne on the left, and the right one holding his small container of Cheerios. She even excused me from leaving a Cherrio on the floor.

After a long series of questions from our attorney, and then a few from the judge, who wanted to know exactly what "extreme sports" entailed, as noted in the elaborate home study report (that's another story!), and whether I had enough life insurance and really intended to take him with me on next year's Y1K, everything was duly signed off...

... and I am officially now the second parent of the WeeOne. Mum. Sigh.

Great news! A Wee One couldn't do better than the two of you.
