I just need a reminder or two...

I just wanted to remind myself that it's aaalllllll worth it. So I'm posting a cute picture of my two sweet boys smiling at the camera at the same time. Tank is sweetly reaching toward the big brother he idolizes, and not getting punched for it. Sunshine is showing off those gorgeous dimples and both boys are CLEAN because they've just had a bath.. their hair is combed.. teeth are brushed.. and it's almost bedtime.


I'll just sit in this moment for awhile I think.

Yeah... that's nice.

The "aaalllllll" that I'm referring to, by the way, isn't just the complaining when his socks don't fit right, or the screaming when he doesn't get what he wants, or the beating up of one another over a stupid toy. I'm trying not to think about that part yet. I'm talking about the one who I will affectionately call "Newbie" until further notice. Sunshine and Tank don't know it yet, but they're in for a little surprise this fall. Bond and I knew about it.. Newbie isn't that kind of surprise, for goodness sake. But, we don't know if Newbie is a boy or a girl.. and we won't until this fall when Newbie is born. So that's why Newbie is the name.

So. The "aaalllllll" is in fact, the pregnancy of course!!!

My body is on strike, or maybe it's working overtime. And it's laughable. I guess this is just what happens when you're baking yet another child.

Pregnancy is funny. Everything takes forever the first time. You're not wearing granny undies two sizes too big until Week 35. But by the third time around, I think someone down there picks up a megaphone around Week 4 and starts pep-talking..

"Okay people!! We're back in baby-bearing business! You know the drill. SPREAD OUT! That's right! Lefts.. a little further please! We don't want to be uneven. Rights.. good good. Let's do this fast people. No point in waiting till the last minute! Pubic bone.. you're gonna bruise a lot sooner this time around.. just hold your ground! Don't give in!"


I have something that first-timers don't have...

Yeah baby... *drool*

I'm just kidding. First-timers can have donuts too. :) They will definitely help your hips widen.. just.. not in the right way.

But what I have that they don't have... is this:

Reminder #1

And Reminder #2


Heck yah. It's definitely aaalllllll worth it!
