I found out some FANTASTIC news this week… my good friend Jen from Life Lives Here is Pregnant! Ah, I love this season of life.
Corianne has one of the best blogs, Band of Burtons, including a lot of writing about her pregnancy, how she feels about becoming a mom. She is a brilliant writer and of course ONE OF THOSE preggos that was barely ever sick and generally feels fantastic all the time. Yes, I know. Sometimes you want to just kick her in the shin. But you can’t kick a pregnant lady. SO I just hug her and hope that some of that rubs off on me if I ever have another one.
Jen is also proving to be the same way. Maybe some of it will rub off on me. Have you seen the movie “What to Expect when you’re Expecting”? Well, at this point, I feel like I was the blond who owned the shop and had a HECK of a time, meanwhile my friends are walking around in bikini’s and stilettos and they sneeze and the baby comes out (I am actually praying for this for them! LOL).
Ok – slight exaggeration. All kidding aside I am TRULY happy that they don’t have to go through some of the really crappy stuff that makes you re-think if you want to go through it again – maybe it is because they are meant to have so many children??? (ha ha – I know, I know – let you get through this one first. Ok I will.)
All this to say – On this day, November 13, 2012 I am very happy. I love that our circle of friends is just getting bigger and adding more kids to the mix. Kids are what makes life WORTH IT sometimes. And I can’t wait for them to experience motherhood.
I am so excited for you BOTH!
And to the rest of us….. be careful – it seems to be in the water….
