I've been having those moments lately, the ones where I think 'god, I'm old' You know those moments... I'd walk into the kitchen for something and think 'what did I come in here for?' or as the shampoo is being rinsed out of my hair, I'll think 'did I shampoo already?' Is it just me? I've heard (a myth, surely?) this thing about women losing brain cells after giving birth, but I never really considered it until now :) ...
I want another baby. The feeling's kind of crept up on me in the last few months and just this week it's bashed me over the head. It's partly to do with the sheer number of pregnant friends I have. (Congratulations to Beth and Katie, Stephanie, Christie, Daniela, and bum, I think there was one more!) And it's partly to do with N working our old video footage of Elliot into a DVD over the last few days. I can hardly believe anyone was so small and beautiful! Elliot is now 16 months old, and I don't want Elliot's newborn days to be a distant memory when/if we have a second child. I like the idea of a two year + age gap between children. And I don't really have a point to this entry except this, I want another baby!
I was cutting a pineapple this morning for breakfast, and I'd just lopped off the top of the pineapple, and it rolled onto the floor. I noticed it had a little tag looped to it, so I picked it up by the tag. You know what was written on it? 'Gold pineapple - suitable for vegetarians' What is this world coming to?
Boring and negative
I have to nothing to write about and I feel very boring at the moment. I was in one of my moods this morning. One of my unexplainable moods where negativity takes over entirely. Do you ever feel that way? That you're ugly and fat and stupid and lazy and a failure all at the same time but that you're also feeling too sorry for yourself to do anything about it? I do, and I don't know why. Nothing seems to trigger it, and I am generally happy. Then I went on a cleaning spree. I swept and tidied and hoovered and dusted. There's something that connects cleaning to my bad moods. But it calms me down and makes me feel better. Maybe I just need out of this house and some sunshine. I think I'll go to the park later with Boy.
I want another baby too. Chris' brother and his wife are having a baby in september and my brother and his girlfirend are having a baby in November. As soon as this wedding is over Chris and I are gonna start trying. My mom used to work for a pediatricians office and he always said 2 1/2-3 years is the best age difference for siblings. have you and N talked about another baby?ReplyDelete
I always have "those moments" Especially in the shower, because I am so relaxed and not thinking and then I wonder what I just washed my hair with...LOL~
I get the whole wanting another baby thing. And I have those old moments all the time!ReplyDelete
I think it is just part of being a woman! We just get down sometimes and can't really explain why! (and thanks b/c I thought for sure I was the only one who ever thought "did I wash my hair yet?" ha!ReplyDelete
Eeeek! A new baby! I'm assuming you've brought this up with your husband, no? Coz, just writing it on the blog won't get you pregnant!ReplyDelete
thank you for the shout out! :)ReplyDelete
oh i have those "old" moments too, and i do the same thing in the shower, i actually end up washing my hair multiple times because i forgot i did it!
also have those fat, total loser moments, but when I do, i try to get a pedicure or something to make myself feel pretty, even if i don't think it's true at the time. or i sit on my big ass and eat ice cream and the mood eventually passes. haha!
sunshine is a good plan, too!! :) hope you feel better!
Maybe i should just copy and paste this post on my blog. Yes I have these days. And I want another baby too. I am sure the feeling got a bit stronger because I do know so mnay people who are pregnant. Lord help me when I actually "See" the newborns, I'll go nuts!ReplyDelete
I used to have those sad days a lot but getting out of the house helps. And cleaning does too!
Hope you're in better spritis soon. It really sucks to feel down.
Oh wait there is more! I explained to my husband this past weekend why I NEED to have another one. I told him I was feeling old and if I knew this was it, you know just 2 of them, then it just goes downhill from there. It's cruel what our hormones do to us.ReplyDelete
Okay I am done, for now anyway :-)
I think that close kids tend to be better friends. It is fun now that Evan and Harry can play (fight too) together.ReplyDelete
What kind of pineapples are not veggie?ReplyDelete
I want a baby too :)ReplyDelete
Spring is in the air!!!
