Mom Mentality

My "Mom Mentality" has not fully kicked in yet, obviously.

Last night when I was leaving my parents house, my headlights hit a person walking, um ... briskly across the street. Clearly a teenager, he jumped about 3 feet in the air when he saw my headlights. He dashed off and tried to hide in the shadow of a fence. Clearly, he'd been up to no good ;-)

A few blocks later I see several minivans haphazardly parked, accompanied by a group of adults, a group of teenagers, and a group of police officers.

My thoughts? "Ha, a few of you kids could learn a thing or two from the kid down the block that got away. And really? Busted by 10:30 pm? Lame."

And if my daughter ever asks ... I never went to parties that needed busting, I never ran from police ... I stayed home and studied hard every night!

Can you legitimately be "nesting" at 26 (and a half!) weeks pregnant? I have a ridiculous amount of energy and I can't seem to stop cleaning. Yesterday I spent 3 hours on a bug-killing mission at my house. I decided it was much better than hiring a company. If you want something done right, do it yourself, no? Then I had to clean the house from top to bottom. I mean, I had to clean that house. And I enjoyed doing it.

Different topic - see that bottom stripe of black on my sweater? See how it's darker than the other black stripes? That's cause I had to wear a tank under this sweater. Or my belly would stick out. S-E-X-Y! So I'm in a rush to wear all my favorite sweaters before my belly outgrows them.

Second different topic - please note that my wedding ring is still on. For now. I can't promise it will fit this time next week. Or tomorrow :-( Weight gained? 4 pounds. Apparently all in my fingers. HA!

Counting My Blessings

25 Weeks

The picture was an impromptu iPhone picture, but I wanted to remember that day.

On Friday, September 17, 2010 I was 25 weeks pregnant with my little girl whom I can't wait to meet.

I had a rare Friday afternoon home with Chris.

I had two healthy dogs.

I had rain on a freshly mowed lawn, and I had a covered porch from which to watch that perfect rain storm.

It was a good day where I could have counted blessings all day long :-)
