38 Weeks and Counting
About a month ago a man at work came up to me and said "Your life is about to change forever," after an intense stare as if to make sure I fully grasped what he was implying he said, "but don't worry it'll be a good thing." Since then I have had several other similar encounters. What is this mixed message people are telling me?
Coming from a girl who has a hard time cutting off price tags or throwing away receipts just in case I decide I don't like it, this baby thing is becoming increasingly nerve racking. What if I'm not a good mom? What if she and I don't bond like you see in the movies? I'm fairly sure there is no return policy on this one.
A weird sense of competing emotions has come over me, I'm scared of the thought of raising a child but at the same time so giddy about thoughts of what she might look like and kissing her little baby cheeks.
So in this last couple of weeks, you can find me re-reading Baby Wise and What to Expect, doing a final cram session before becoming a parent and "my life changes forever...."
P.S. Yes, I am the world's worst self-photographer. This is a straight as they get.
