No sugar coating here.

Ok, it hit me this week and I am going to rant a bit.   I am starting to feel pregnant.   Yes, I feel big as a house and everything that goes along with it.  I'm tired, achy and cranky.   I have 8 weeks to go as of today.   Which probably means more like 9 weeks.    And this kid is riding high.  Holy cow.   My lungs and stomach have to be the size of raisins, my esophagus is like the eternal flame and my stomach muscles are just shot completely.  I have to stretch just to get air.
 
Then there's the kid.  Who, for really the first time, decided to become a two year old terrorist and completely meltdown in the library last night several times when we had to leave the cool train set they had set up.  We are talking the full throw-body-to-the-ground-screaming-limp-tantrum in a nice quiet but crowded library.  And not once, but s.e.v.e.r.a.l. times.  Of course, I had books I was waiting to check out and books are not something you can swing over your arm to free up a hand.  You let one slip, they all go.     So, I had to keep finding a spot to put my books down and pick up my kid.  I literally had to juggle him in one hand and my books in another out of the place all the way to car with him wailing.  Oh, did I mention that I am pregnant and he is freaking heavy when limp or fighting me.   I am proud of myself that I totally kept my composure the entire time we were there, but man, once I got in the car....my tears were a'flowin'.  And we live like 2 minutes from home, so they were still going when we walked in the door.  Needless to say, he got a good talking to from his father.  Now, my kid is normally a good kid and this was a real first for me.   And now that I've written this, I almost feel bad about posting something so negative about him on my blog.   But then again, this blog is about what we go through, not sugar coated Andrew praises only.  You know that I love him with all my heart and within minutes after got home, all was forgiven.   Plus, I may have been a tad emotional anyway (not that I am making excuses for him what-so-ever, no-siree, Bob), since I had worked all day downtown in what I consider a crazy busy day.   Oh, and I'm pregnant.  'nuff said.
 
As excited as I was about the new train set at the library... thinking that this would be a fun place for us to come play....we may think twice about heading back there in the near future.  As least, not without back-up.

Kelly, I was cracking up reading this because Autumn pulled the same "stunt" at Kohl's AND I had an audience of people looking at me like, "What are you going to do about that?" Ugh! I gave her the good ole' line of, "I'm leaving without you," to which she didn't move from the floor and screamed louder. Oops! Glad to see I'm not alone. :)
