First, you should probably know how thankful I am to live in such a wonderful country. I'm grateful for the opporunities I have here that I wouldn't otherwise. Even though people seem to constantly complain about whats wrong with politics and whatnot, I'm pretty proud to be a part of this country, even though of course it'll have faults. :)
This is THE LAST fourth of July Clint and I will EVER have without any ankle bitters! I decided we had to live it big considering next year our baby will probably have a 7:00 bedtime and I'll probably fall asleep before 9 (not that that doesn't still happen now).
What can't you do with a 6 month old baby? THE MOVIES! I've been really wanting to see What to Expect When You're Expecting. I laughed. Then I cried. Then I laughed til I cried. I know a big part was the fact that I'm pregnant, but I loved that movie. I mean, seriously! The part where she is speaking at that conference and calls total "BS" on the "Glow" (AMEN SISTER!) and all the completely unglamourous and painful things not everyone knows about pregnancy! I just wish some of that proclaimed "backne" had spread to her face to make it more realistic. She can always borrow some of mine if she wants.
The dudes group? So perfect. Clint needs to find one, stat. But I would plant a bug on him because those conversations are just too funny to miss out on.
When the one lady miscarried and when J-lo met her adopted little boy...I cried like a baby.... only less screaming, more tears.
The "mother-in-law" with the perfect pregnancy and birth in 9 inch heels? NO KIDDING! I've had people ask me how I'm feeling and, after they tell me they feel so wonderful and energized, I'm tempted to tell them my double digit puke count for the day or tell them my entire body feels like I got hit by a truck. Speaking of losing your lunch, to be realistic that movie should have had much more. Really, twice? Multipy that by 167,893.
BUT, I did love how sweet the ending was. The entire movie I was thinking "no. No. NO! I cannot do this! I can't handle being pregnant. HOW ARE BABIES SO BIG! This is awful. I'm gonna vomit. again. HELP ME!", but then seeing the happy families at the end, I was so happy we have a sweet baby on the way. I'm so excited to be a mom and I'm so thankful for the opportunity to saccrifice for my unborn child through this pregnancy, even though sometimes it's hard to remember that all this IS for the sake of a child and not some cruel punishment. This is just a snipet of the wide range of emotions I have towards this pregnancy and being a mom. Maybe I'll include that in a seperate post. Can't believe I still have to wait 6 months to hold my baby!
Hope you all had a wonderful 4th!!
