My 3-year old asks “Mama, is it appropriate to eat boogers?” Ew. But I’m super-impressed with her vocabulary.
A thought about this pregnancy: I feel more connected to the baby. I know the depth of change a new baby brings and I’m already in awe of this little one. Pregnancy feels sacred. With my first pregnancy, I was more focused on me–the physical changes, the specialness of being pregnant, the mystery of birth. I knew there was a baby in there but didn’t really understand that reality.
I’m no longer feeling lovey-dovey about my hubby. He is a supreme April Fooler and has given me many near-heart attacks in our time together. And even while I braced for it, he still managed to convince me that I had head lice yesterday. Gullible. Yes, that is me.
These are creepy.
I’m more bothered that I thought I would be that Scott knows the gender of our baby. I mean, that is HUGE! He knows what our family will look like. I hope I will be able to hold out and be surprised at birth.
I need a landscaper. If anyone knows a landscaper who needs a doula (before mid-July), I’d like to barter services. Ridiculous long shot. I know.
I’m reading a birth book written by an engineer. I hate math. She keeps talking about vectors and axis of symmetry. Real sentence from the book: before you can apply mathematics and physics to labor, you have to understand the concept of vectors. Did I mention this book is about birth? It is on my hypnobabies required reading list.
I like this positive parenting website.
I must shut down the computer and get ready to go to the Clemson Babywearing group. Babywearing day is such a long day!
