"So I thought you weren't going to have any kids?"

Funny, so did I.

Of the two of us I had always been the one that wanted kids. Fabulous babe, having spent considerable amounts of time concentrating on her career, didn't. Or so I thought.

One day Fabulous Babe looked over at me and asked:

"What do you think about us having a baby?"

I weighed my response carefully before answering...

"Who are you and what have you done with my wife?"

That was the beginning of a two month conversation weighing the pros and cons of our having a baby. Since we weren't sure where all this would lead we decided to keep the whole thing under our hat until we reached some sort of decision.

Despite having been the one to bring up the idea my wife decided that we couldn't actually say out loud what we were contemplating. This left me both confused and perplexed. How the heck we were going to discuss this out if we couldn't actually talk about it?

After some quick thinking I realized that these sorts of things always have codenames in spy movies or corporate takeovers. For my own sanity, it seemed, I had best come up with something quickly. After a few suggestions that were rejected, which I'll just spare you, I finally hit on the one that was approved: "The Special Project."
