Some days nothing can go right. No one can say the right thing, nothing can make you smile, and by the end of the day you’re left lying in bed wondering why you ever bother getting out of it at all.
And then there are days nothing can go wrong. No one can say the wrong thing, nothing can make you mad (well almost nothing), and even the simplest little thing can make the world seem better.
Maybe your days aren’t quite THAT extreme, but welcome to my world.
So which type of day is today? Today is a good day.
It doesn’t matter that it’s been snowy half the day and sunny the other half. I’ve seen the sun. And it doesn’t matter that none of my clothes fit…and my belly looks more “fat” then “preggo.” I’m creating life. And it certainly doesn’t matter that I have to pee EVERY 5 minutes or that my bra is strangling my will to live. Why? Because I’m enjoying a plump tangelo and several slices of smoky cheddar that my neighbor gave to me. And right now this cheese is better than sex. (Sorry pookie)
I’m so grateful for the miracle of life. And I figured I better write it down before I forget it! I feel so completely overwhelmed and inadequate to be carrying around another human, another beautiful spirit. I just want everyone to know I know how lucky I am to be able to get pregnant and have a child. There are so many women who have to work so hard and struggle for so long, and my heart just breaks for them. I try not to take for granted that I am lucky enough to be a mom-in-training.
Anyway. Can we all say HORMONES? Ha. But I don’t care. I love the tulips, I love the ice cream truck that drives by my house playing that creepy version of “The Mickey Mouse Club” and I love all of you.
Here’s a picture of me “loving life” this morning. I know I’m making a “poo poo” face in the picture. But that’s just because I can’t take myself seriously enough to smile. Please note our tulips (who finally decided to join the party). Oh and you can kind of see the panises I planted, you know the ones that had me convinced I had caused my baby brain damage.
I’m also working on a badge design that reads:
“I’M NOT FAT, I’M PREGNANT.”
You can send your orders in now.
WELL! Now that I’ve shared all that love I feel like I can get up and continue on with my life. Have a fabulous day.
