  • Well yesterday, I cried because DH got home from a long, busy day at work, and then happily offered to go out to the pharmacy to pick up my Rx for my heartburn. (Which was SO bad yesterday, I was miserable. Taking TUMS like candy, but they only worked for a few min at a time).
    So with zero complaints, and without being asked, DH toddled off after a 13 hr work day, to do errands for me. Before even having supper.

  • #1 Grumpy Cat passed  :'(

    #2 I hit my toe off the corner of a wall walking to the bathroom because it was the straw that broke the camel's back after feeling mad at this, that, and the other that day. 

    #3 Very embarrassing, but the other night, my husband was sitting next to me on the bed. I've been going to sleep earlier lately due to being tired and he started petting the dog next to his leg at the same time as caressing my hair. It got me convinced that he was splitting attention between the two of us and made sure to tell him that it wasn't okay. I got so upset over it to tears, I actually told the dog to get out and that I didn't want to see her face anymore. Then we started busting up laughing at my ridiculous hormones.

    People think we become mothers when we give birth but the truth is we become mothers the moment we start calling our babies to us in our thoughts, dreams and prayers. Some paths are short and some are so long that you can easily forget where you were headed.

    How I feel all of the time.

    Pregnant with my third boy and final baby. Whole family wants a girl. They find out end of June. My 10yr old at dinner said ‘I really hope it’s a girl.’ Once they left the kitchen I washed the dishes with tears running down my face. Why can’t they just want a healthy baby? 
  • @mia8263 Also third boy and final baby. My 6 year old really wanted a sister (as did I), and I thought we would both be upset if it was a boy. Turns out everyone is fine and has embraced the idea of more testosterone running around the house. Just curious as to why you haven’t told them the gender yet?

    @thirdtimesacharm2019 MH actually didn’t want to know at all he wanted it to be a surprise but when I showed him some Disney baby reveals he liked that and is excited for it. I think 3 boys is perfect. My boys love me so much so I’m excited for this one. Just wish someone else would want another boy. I hope it’s like yours and everyone will be happy.

    Receiving a ‘no’ RSVP to my friend baby shower. The cat came up as I was crying & snuggled me. I cried harder thinking, “This cat is my best friend.” 😬
