Babymoon & Other Things

We are going out of town this weekend to see a comedian named Jim Gaffigan. I am excited! It's so strange to think that we will not be able to pick up and go so easily anymore... I mean we always have the dogs to think about, but they are pretty easy... Why can't babies be crated again? I kid, I kid.

I was telling my friend recently that I couldn't wait til about a month after giving birth for my life to go back to normal. I guess I should have said body, because my life will never be the "normal" I know again. It is SO strange to think about!!! BUT I was reading about postpartum body issues and I had no idea they were so plentiful. Contractions while breast feeding? Sounds fantastic. I won't get into all the other gross details to spare the boys and, well, everyone. I didn't want to read about them all but I felt I had to since they will be happening to me. I hope it's true what people say that once Skylar is here I won't think about the other crap. ha But boy do I wish boys had the fun job of giving birth.

Again, I was never the type that "always dreamed" of getting married and having babies. I am excited, don't get me wrong, but also I just have no idea what to expect! We never pined for kids... When I was talking about the layout of our house - which is PERFECT for dogs and in home boarding but not at all ideal for a family - the person I was talking to said "What a nice way for it to happen rather than the other way around". That stuck with me because I can't fathom having that maternal need for a baby only to have it never come true. This way is better. :)

Anywho! Enough babble... Happy Wednesday peeps!

You'll be able to take her everywhere for almost the first year. Then - not so much. As for your body, it'll become your "new normal."

they have portable cribs that go in the car and you can take Skylar with
you to see grandparents and friends. Enjoy the babymoon!!

The Skinner Box was something of a crate and even tho it was shown to be effective, it never caught on because people didn't like the crate idea. Too bad. But you should edit your posts into a book that could be required reading for all high school students.

Babies are crated. Baby crates are called cribs.

Yes, but it's not ok to leave them in it and leave. Sigh.
