Dear Huggies…

Dear Huggies, Your wipes advertise that they are “One and Done.” Obviously, you’re not talking about my babies and their poops. “One and Partially Done” or “Three’ll Do It” would be more appropriate. I guess that’s not as catchy but at least you don’t sound full of $hit (pun intended).  Thanks, Liz (My Native America name could be Changed Lots of Diapers) P.S. I still like your wipes though. I just crack up every time I read that on the package.  Advertisements Continue reading Dear Huggies…

Sick and tired…and Sad

The curse of morning sickness has hit me. Hard. It’s more like all day sickness. Whoever termed it morning sickness must have misspelt mourning. It’s off and on in the morning and then pretty constant in the afternoon. Oh, how I wish I could puke (except at work which would be weird since no one knows). It’s just a constant queasiness that makes me feel like I have to lose it all.  I’ve mentioned this before but my emotions have been running high and low. Today I found out that a dear friend has advanced stage colon cancer and it’s … Continue reading Sick and tired…and Sad

Like a Rollercoaster 

Yesterday was the first day I really had a bad emotional day even though I can feel this little person inside me is taking over me and will soon make me seem somewhat bipolar at times.  This is my third time around, so it isn’t surprising to me. I have the best husband in the world. He’s the best dad, he’s kind, sharing, smart, sexy, funny, and very loving. Despite this, it is still hard for him to deal with me in this state. I think he’s doing an excellent job considering, at times, I’m  a pretty big challenge. This … Continue reading Like a Rollercoaster 

Mr. Peanut

My dad still tells the story about how my mom taught aerobics class when she was very pregnant with me…complete with 1983 model leotard, tights, and leg warmers. He said she looked like Mr. Peanut with her belly plus her amazingly toned arms and legs.  I thought about this tonight as I tried out my new pregnancy aerobics video. The girls on here probably would resemble Mr. Peanut as well had they worn 1980’s fashions rather than comfy yoga pants.  I’m jealous. Right now I’m at that awkward, “man, she needs to lay off the donuts” stage. From here I … Continue reading Mr. Peanut

Keeping secrets

I’ll admit it. I love to talk. Keeping exciting secrets is extremely hard for me. At this point we’ve shared our little secret with only immediate family and I had to share with one person at work.  I have to keep things confidential at work all the time, so it’s nothing new. But when it comes to exciting personal news I can’t wait to share. It’s killing me to keep my little secret in but we would feel better waiting until after the first ultrasound. So here we are…keeping our special little secret. Continue reading Keeping secrets
