I’ve been writing in this blog since March 2003 and just got my first fairly negative comment the other day! “Bo-ring” tells me that “finding out the sex is so unoriginal.” The other option, waiting until birth, isn’t particularly original either as people have been doing that for thousands and thousands of years. I’m forced to conclude that there must be some other original means of finding out. Waving a silver spoon over my belly perhaps. Consulting with the gods and visiting a medicine man. Better yet! have Steve look up there with a flashlight.
We have three strollers now, thanks to Craigslist. (All three in great condition for less than the price of one stroller brand new! Have I told you how much I love Craigslist?) How did that ever even happen? I knew I needed a regular umbrella stroller and a jogging stroller because I want to get back into running after the baby is born (I miss it, especially this time of year! I know, I know you saw Charlotte running while she was pregnant on Sex and the City: The movie so it must be ok. I’m telling you, I feel weird and physically uncomfortable when I try to run while pregnant though.)
But wait, two strollers is not enough. Apparently there is this other contraption known as the car seat stroller which is especially handy during the first year. And if I get the JJ Cole Bundle Me for the winter months, which friends of ours told us is an absolute necessity, I’m not going to want to take the baby out of that to transfer to a regular stroller during the winter months… So it begins. We already need a bigger car, for both baby and dog, and it won’t be long before we need a bigger HOUSE. For all our strollers.
By the way, pink frilly stuff for girl babies is out of control. I. hate. it.
Spring break is this week. I have been getting caught up on paperwork at work and organizing closets at home. Not exactly girls gone wild but…
Will try to get a 23 week pic of me up soon.
