Friday my mother in law called and offered to babysit for a few hours. Our choice Friday night or Saturday. We chose Saturday. Because Teagan decided to arrive early we didn’t get that last weekend we’d planned. I wanted lobster dinner. I’d been craving it, but because she decided to arrive on Thursday, instead of the following Monday, I didn’t get that dinner.
DH being the sweetheart he is, wanted to make sure I got this. Hey, I’d gone through hell and back to finally give him a child. A lobster dinner is hardly asking for much. So we went to dinner and I got a two pound lobster. (Yes, I ate most of it. I shared some with the hubby.)
It was nice to drive in the car with him and sit in the front seat. Because she’s so small I have to sit in the back and make sure her little head doesn’t bob all over the place. It was nice to get dressed up a little bit and wear “normal” clothes.
I’m excited. I’m 21 pounds LIGHTER than my pre-pregnancy weight. I lost weight my entire pregnancy and in the last two weeks dropped another 10+ pounds. I’m not complaining. Though last week we went to a family reunion picnic and this older woman asked me what number baby this made for me. I said 5. She said, “Bless you. I stopped at three.”
Well, I did too. I stopped 14 years ago because I was married to a monster and couldn’t allow him to father another child. I swore I’d never get involved or have more children…until I met my hubby and he was childless and longed for a child of his own. After three years of miscarriages, loss of a preemie I gave him a beautiful daughter. Anyway back to this woman. She then says, “So when are you due?”
I was like, “I had her a week ago, she’s over there!”
Talk about awkward. LoL I’m sure she felt bad. I didn’t get offended. Though earlier I’d said to the DH, “Damn, I look pretty good for just having a baby.”
Anyway, the same thing happened to my sister in law. She brought her daughter to the doctors for a checkup. Her daughter was one week old and a woman asked her when she was due. Really? How the heck would that even be possible?
Off to finish the edits. I will submit this book to my editor today. (IF you’re reading this R, I promise!) ;)
