Nap time! And putting Mari down was actually successful. Who knows how long I have here (cue dooming music..) It certainly has been a while. Once I put Mari down for a nap I knew what i had to decide; Blog or laundry? Blog wins!! Mostly because I saw something on my way home today and I new instantly that it was time to BLOG.
Driving home through Brandon I saw a very pretty, hugely pregnant woman in a flowy maxi dress walking down the sidewalk. My very first though (and I may have even laughed out loud..) was WHOAAAAA am I glad I’m not pregnant anymore!! I am a little over 4 months pp right now and apparently that pregnancy amnesia everyone speaks of hasn’t hit me yet. Will it ever? I wonder when? But then again I don’t wonder. I still thank the Lord every day that I am not pregnant anymore. Note: I also thank him for our ability to easy have a child without trying, I’m not at all ungrateful. But no, I do not miss being pregnant. Naah.. It wasn’t cute. No, I do not reminisce fondly of my preggo Buddha belly. Just NO. I feel a little odd and maybe embarrassed for my stance on this as a woman and mother, like something is wrong with me for despiseing being pregnant so much. (Maybe I’m looking for some reassurance that this is normal, feel free to leave your reassurances in the comments below). But honestly, I’m not sorry. The truth is, as my memory stands, I REALLY despised being pregnant. I absolutely LOVE my daughter with all of my heart and am so grateful every day that God gave me such a beautiful, clever, mild mannered snuggly chubby baby; I was in love with her long before she was even born. I even got teary eyed and had to leave the room because it made me sick to my stomach watching Game of Thrones when they abandoned the baby in the woods during winter. But just no.
Needed to get that off my chest. PHEEEWWWW. Feeling better.
In other (lighter subjected) Henebry news: Mari got her 4 month shots. Took em like a champ as always. We are proud to be doing our part towards heard immunization!! Are you doing your part? This time she only got a fever in the 99’s! I’m such a proud Mommy for her stellar immune system!
We also took a little trip up to King’s Lynn this past weekend. King’s Lynn is a port town on a river that opens up into the North Sea. We checked out a very much intact castle from the 13th/14th centuries and strolled the town. The weather was beautiful!!
Our plans tomorrow are to go to Great Yarmouth (directly on the North Sea) check out the beach and shops.. and FOOD! The weather is supposed to be great again. FINALLY nice weather in England. We’re very happy 🙂
Over the 4th of July weekend (a 4 day weekend for us) we are planning to take a trip to Spain because I desperately need the beach. Let me say again, desperately. This trip will be brought to us in part by Jamberry!! This company is doing AMAZING things for me and I sincerely thank Shannon Lankford for introducing me to it. I’m beyond excited!!
