An American Family

We were up far too late the night before last, eating and watching movies and dancing to YouTube videos.  Also Tim took some orangey-looking photos of me and Isaac. 

... And it occurred to me what an odd little family we could be within the next couple years.  Picture this: my scientific nerdy husband who probably works in a government lab, myself, the artsy boho running a coffeehouse, our little redhead son, and some Asian kid (or whoever we end up adopting).

I think it sounds almost perfect.

And it reminds me of this quote from You've Got Mail, where Joe Fox is explaining his somewhat-peculiar familial quirks to Kathleen Kelly, and sums up by saying, "We are ... an American family!"

... Well, I hope it happens.
