Me: “Mal, leave the cat alone before she gets mad and bites your face off.”
Mal: “Can I bite her back?”
Mal is throwing a shitfit because his racecar backpack is gone.
He can’t find it and he wants it NOW. Like absolutely losing. his. shit.
He’s never owned a backpack.
We were out running errands yesterday and stopped by Walmart to pick up some prints I had done at their photo center to frame and hang in the nursery. Got the pictures, which turned out way better than I expected, and picked up a couple of other odds and ends. The weather was great, we had no obligations and nowhere to be, and overall I was in a fantastic mood.
Until I got to the checkout line.
The cashier looks at me as people so often do these days(going on 8 months pregnant it can’t be avoided), and asks me how much longer I have.
“Oh good!” I think, “At least she’s not another of those telling me I must be due any day now”, which I get….a LOT.
So I tell her I have about 9-10 weeks left.
“Oh wow!” she says, “You are WAY bigger than me and I only have 6 weeks left!”. At which points she points to a belly the size of which I have not seen since mid-first trimester, and on most people looks like she just has a predilection for Oreos.
I get that every person and every pregnancy is different. I get that not every belly is the same size. What I don’t get is what pregnant woman says that to another?? Really?? It’s not enough being reminded on a daily basis how huge I am(thanks!), how there is NO way I am going to make it til August(I will), and how am I sure there’s not 2 in there??(3 ultrasounds say no.) But to hear that from someone who sure, surely should know better? I cussed and ranted all the way to the car, much to Paul’s amusement.
She may have a tiny belly, and probably will have a smaller baby, but I am wishing her some great big ginormous hemorrhoids to make up for it.
I’ve been planning to get back to posting to my blog for ages not, but short and sweet, today I got one hell of a reason to do so. It’s a bit faint, but 3 positive tests can’t be wrong. Estimated due date August 9, 2013.
