Recently, a friend of mine (who's about to welcome a beautiful little girl into their family) asked if she could put me on speed dial for parenting advice. I'm going to respond with my new motto for moms, "Prepare to Be Humbled".
For months, I have been working off all the baby weight that Miss M so graciously left behind. And I've been pleased with the progress I've made to this point. With a couple of Weight Watchers gold stars under my belt, my goal is in sight (still a long way off, but in sight, nonetheless).
So, I bought myself a cute little sundress the other day. It was on sale and it was in a bright, summery color. I loved the empire waistline and the comfy cotton material, a style that made it a perfect piece to dress up for work or throw over a swimsuit for the beach.
I was really excited about it. Until Drew got really excited when I was wearing it the other day. He gasped out loud, pointed toward my belly and said, "MOM! You have another baby in your tummy - YEY!!!!"
Uh... No I don't.
"Yes! Yes you do! LOOK!"
My son poked at my post-baby belly, pointing out what was apparently obvious.
I'm sorry to disappoint you, son, but I do NOT have another baby in my belly. That's just leftover from Miss M.
I walked quickly to the kitchen (with no small amount of horror on my face) and relayed the conversation to my husband.
I turned and walked out of the room as he began lecturing Drew, but all I caught was the beginning ("Buddy!! Never ever EVER EVER...)
So, I'm looking for that roll of duct tape again for him. And something with the words "Control Top" for me, I guess!
