Ha, just in comparison to the day I have had at work! Today was a super stressful day at work and I ended up coming home just to get away from it all. My legs and feet are swollen and my blood pressure feels like it is going through the roof! The horrible thing is that no one seems to care about my health and the health of my unborn child. I have to stop thinking that other people should care. They generally don't and I just have to face that. Seeing Zach today is going to make this day all worth while. Today is a day when being a mother will be the easy part.

So, over the last few days I have realized that my life has come to this question, did the baby poop today? If he did, was it big, was it runny or hard? How can that be one of the important parts of my day? Andy and I muse over how our life has changed so much. I'd say 99% of the time we don't mind the changes, but once in a while it is nice to get back to your own self. Today we started packing up our room and going through old stuff to get ready for our new ADULT bedroom set. I found some old clothes that I don't think I will ever wear again. I'm a mom now, afterall! I guess I should buy some mom jeans. Right! I promised myself that I wouldn't be one of "those moms" that lets themself go, doesn't do their hair or make-up and just doesn't care about themself overall. Right now, being 7 months pregnant, it is harder to look good, but I sure am trying! Doing the best with what I have. I still shower everyday and don't leave the house without make-up. That wouldn't be fair to the poor world! I wouldn't want to frighten small children! I am putting this in writing now so please hold me to it!!!!

Topsy-turvy! The last 16 months, plus the nine months of being pregnant, have been so filled with things I can't begin to explain or understand. I am keeping a journal for both of my children chronicling my pregnancy and their first year of life. That journal is very nice and sentimental but because I want them to have it one day, I am not being as real as I could be. This is for me, this blog on blogspot. This is going to be the place that I can be open and honest about the joys and tribulations of being a new parent. The place I can go to get it all off my chest and really get down to the good stuff. Ha! I am a parent, there really isn't anything down and dirty to this. In my entries I forsee the dirty stuff being about vomit and diaper changes! So, welcome to my blog and let's see where it goes from here!
