When we lived in Daegu, our way of life was just normal to Clarissa. We moved there when she was 18 months old and she didn’t really remember life in America.
A couple of months before we moved to Pyeongtaek, we went to Hawaii with Tim on a work trip and then Clarissa and I went to Virginia and Pennsylvania to visit grandparents. At this point Clarissa was about three and a half years old. She was fascinated and kept saying, “Mommy, they speak English here!”
At some point in the beginning of our life in Pyeongtaek, Clarissa started saying things like “I can’t wait until we move to America because we will have two vehicles and I will get a sister.”
Well, we are officially moving back to America but I am not sure that Clarissa will get either wish.
Tim will start a new job at the Pentagon in May. We are hoping to find a place to live that is near public transportation so that we can continue our one car lifestyle. Though in this case, I will be the one who usually has the car so I think Clarissa will be happy with that.
We should find out at my appointment next week if Baby Faust is a boy or a girl. However, at this point, Clarissa would be very disappointed if she is having a sister. She is adamant that she wants a baby brother. She even said, “If it is a boy, I will be a super hero, but if it’s a girl, I will be a villain…”
