The umbrellas were out in full force for Molly’s shower in Elgin a week ago today.
Sadly, the umbrellas didn’t hold up as showers turned into a Tsunami of gifts from droves of family members. I stopped out before rushing off to Indy for the Final Four and it was an impressive sight to see all those boxes.
The photo with this story shows SulliBaby’s future dwellings filled with goods. We are very lucky to have generous family and friends. This child will have nothing but the best in infant goods as far as I can tell. I assembled a mobile the other day–quite awesome.
On tap for today is to set-up the cradle, which has been in SulliMom’s family for a long time.
GOOD NEWS: The Chicago Rush won last night and it was great to be back inside Allstate Arena, despite missing most of the good people behind the scenes who made the Rush into the league’s best organization. I appreciate Mike Alzamora and the current front office for asking me back. It was different and the same. A little strange, in fact.
UIC beat Butler in baseball yesterday, 19-6, giving SulliDad a little room for bragging rights. BU hoops coach Brad Stevens threw out the first pitch and Hink the Bulldog caught it. (I kid) Two more between the Flames and Bulldogs today at the Mill. It’s a nice day; come on out.
BAD NEWS: Don’t get me started on the Bulls–debacle. Plus, Chicago baseball teams have struggled out of the gate. It has been ugly for the Sox and Cubs save for a few dazzling individual performances. At this point, I wouldn’t feel comfortable introducing a child to either squad. I’d be afraid he/she may choose St. Louis or the Twins instead. That would be unacceptable and grounds for dismissal..
