Christmas

  • Shopping - done
  • Baking goodies - underway
  • Blogging - light 
  • Eating - heavy and gonna get worse
  • Dieting plans - postponed

Christmas cheer - to everyone. (Although I do need to buy a bit a that liquid cheer, yet, so I guess I'm not done.)

Although I am somewhat atheistic, you won't find any of that politically correct crap here.

"somewhat atheistic"? Is it like "somewhat pregnant" or worse ;-)

It's akin to agnosticism or deism.

As to whether that's better or worse than being pregnant, I think it's better. I've been pregnant. I know whereof I speak.

With my first, it was three months of feeling icky followed by three months of feeling great followed by three months of being big and off balance, not to mention suffering from a terrible, unfulfillable desire to sleep on my stomach and a feeling that my belly button was going to split open and then 36 (or was it 38, I can't remember) hours of labour (he was a breech baby, so he took his bloody time!!)

He was also overdue and had to be coaxed via chemical means to want to come out. They had the operating room all set up and ready to go in case they had to go the caesarian route.

And he was big. 8 lbs. 10 oz..

Second one, same thing with the desire to sleep on my stomach. But she was a lot smaller and only took about 12 hours. Much more reasonable.

But with her I felt icky the whole nine months and my doctor thought I still had two or three weeks to go, so he went away on a holiday and I went into labour that day. She arrived a week early. 6 lbs. 8 oz.

Kids!!!

Now you know more that you ever wanted to know.

With my first one, I actually felt sorry for my husband at the same time. Being of the male persuasion, he felt he had to fix things and make them better, but he was totally powerless, and rather annoying in his attempts to be in charge of fixing things. It was quite funny. I think he personified why in the old days they didn't let the husbands/fathers into the delivery room.
