Ignorance really is bliss
Some things I learned or realized this not so holiday-ish weekend.
Having a cold while insanely pregnant and miserable with heartburn really kinda sucks. A lot.
While having said cold, a nice relaxing holiday weekend is notsomuch a possibility.
Trying to manage someone whose English is limited is something of a challenge. Me and www.freetranslation.com are becoming BFF awfully fast.
I dug out my old copy of What to Expect The First Year over the weekend. This was an INCREDIBLY bad idea. Know why it’s a bad idea? Because now I am forced to remember all the stuff I chose to replace in my brain with better stuff. Like colic. And dealing with mystery illnesses that cause you to call pediatricians at 2:37am. Or breastfeeding issues. Or colic.
Also, I am now reminded that, even though I am the worst pregnant woman walking on the planet, it is easier to manage a baby inside my uterus than outside. At least at this point my life is (mostly) my own. July 26th? It all kinda goes to hell in a handbag. With a soon-to-be-jealous five-year-old as an exciting accessory.
That’s about all from here. Me and my sniffles and stuffy head are going back to bed. At least until about 9:00pm when the fireworks start and they wake up a sleeping Swimmy who will come and crawl in bed with us thereby ending the beginning of what would probably be a crappy sleep anyway.
G-d bless America.
