....this is going to be a long week. I was thinking about this pregnancy, as it is my last. There aren't a lot of positive things I can say about it at this point, and if I do, that would be pretty whiney. Who likes a whiner? Sometimes, it's ok to "vent" and get out your frustrations. But today is not that day. Today, I'm looking forward to some things, and I wanted to share it with you and with the digital universe. Because that's what you do these days. You share things, you connect, you let go of some fears or some worries and share your hopes and dreams. That's just what you do. So, here's some things I look forward to after this pregnancy is over.
I look forward to bending over again. Just the simple act of picking a toy up off the ground will be a huge milestone.
I look forward to going up and down the stairs without getting tired.
I look forward to running with my kids again. Especially in a store to keep up with them while they run, giggling, away from me.
I look forward to eating ice cream again without raging heart burn.
I look forward to being able to turn around, from the waist.
I look forward to wearing high heels. Oh, I love high heels!
I look forward to having my wedding ring once again on my finger. I've missed that little guy.
I look forward to laying on my stomach to read or watch TV.
I look forward to sleeping without pillows propped up all around me.
I look forward to sanding and painting again.
I look forward to meeting my daughter.
...To holding her in my arms.
...To hearing her little cries.
...To seeing her first smile.
...To watch her grow up and develop her own personality.
...To see how her brothers and sisters interact with her and she with them.
...to begin our life with a new addition.
These are the things I look forward to.
