|next time I'll wear makeup...|
After a long day at work or anywhere else all I want to do is bond with my husband and child. In fact, every time I feel my little boy kick, punch or squirm inside of me I get this overwhelming urge to tell my boss "see ya!" so I can go home, lay down and soak in the wonderful, magical feeling of the movements of my little love. I don't do that but it would be kind of nice to be able to take it in as much as I can. I want to take in everything about this pregnancy. I don't want to realize four months from now that it's all over and wonder where the time went.
I waited for this time in my life for so long. When I was a little girl I dreamed of the day that I would have a family of my own, when I was a teenager I would babysit every chance I got, when I met the person who would one day become my husband we talked about our dreams for a family. We were 17, on our first "date" and we were talking babies. So I'm making myself a promise. I am going to slow down and soak it all in. When I'm tired, I'm going to sleep. When I want to cry, I'm going to cry. When I want to do nothing at the end of the day except lay with my lullabelly and a baby book, that's exactly what I'm going to do. I'm going to do it because this is my time to connect with my child before I have to share him with the world and I promise to myself that I'm gonna enjoy it while it lasts.
Side note: my husband came home with the lullabelly a few weeks ago as a surprise and I love it...
