The Up-Side

I just read a friend's blog and found out that her daughter recently broke her foot. It got me to thinking about two years ago, and where I was. I'm feeling for her having to have a cast on her leg in the heat. But, here, in my opinion, is the up-side of wearing a cast:

  • You get lots of sympathy.
  • You have a great conversation piece.
  • People want to write cute things on it.
  • You get lots of attention.
  • It's okay to move slowly.
  • It's okay to lay around.
  • If it's your right leg, they don't let you drive.
  • I was fortunate enough to have my mother-by-marriage around nearly everyday to help take care of the house, kids and all the transporation.
  • Yah, I'd say you get pretty darned spoiled.

So, I got to thinking about my current situation (btw, this photo is from a month ago. I'm SOOOO much bigger than this now. I'm huge!). Here's the up-side in my opinion:



  • Ummmmmm....wait a minute....

I know there's got to be an up-side. Just a sec. I'll think of something.



Wait! I've got it!....




Something that looks a lot like this'll be the up-side.
Fifty one days and counting.

We need a new belly picture, sweetie.

So what happened two years ago when I wasn't around to know about it?

Sorry, Alyson, I just can't bring myself to take another photo of this. Although, today I went to the dr. and the women who were sitting waiting to see the doctor after me seemed to be much bigger, so that did make me feel a bit better, but when, two days a row, other women look at you and say, "Wow! You're not due until July?!" That really tells you it's not all in your mind.

As far as the leg thing goes, here's a past post that gives a Reader's Digest version of what happened. There's more to it that makes it really a hilarious story, but I'm finding there's not much in my life that doesn't end up being hilarious to me in one way or another.

Umm. Ooops. Can I blame this on pregnancy brain? Here's the link:
