Welcome to our blog! This is my attempt to keep track of, and share with the world, this little experiment called “expanding the family” me and my husband are trying out. Right now it’s just the 2 of us and our little cats, Ozzy & Tuba. In 3 short months though… watch out! Baby makes 3 – or 5 depending on how you look at it.
First off I should say I am a very cynical person. Motherhood, I thought. Whoop-dee-doo. Women have been doing it for thousands of years – what could be so special about it?? Well, so far, nothing. I feel like crap all the time, my feet are the size of U-505 submarines, I pee 25 times a day, can’t sleep right, ect. ect. ect. I am sure I will change my tune when little baby Hayden (name still under consideration – that is a whole other post in and of itself) arrives in a few short months. “He’ll change your life!!” everyone keeps exclaiming at me!!! Feel free to insert more exclamation points if you are in this camp of thought.
Well, we will see. I am sure I will love it, be in awe of him, and on and on and on. For now though, I just want to sleep more than 2 hours at a time without getting up to pee a measly teaspoon and then spend a 1/2 hour trying to get back to sleep.
So, to quote Holly Hunter from one of my favorite all time movies – Raising Arizona, “Things have channnnnged!!!”.
