Ticking Time Bomb


Well I have one more month of glorious pregnancy to endure. It's not a bed of roses but I'm enjoying part of it. Other parts I'm not enjoying and Andy agrees. My major mood swings is one thing which has prompted Andy to now tentatively ask every hour "how are we doing?" and cautiously wait for a reply.


I have to say when you are feeling hot/sweaty/ having mild contractions/ and just plain blahh it gives you courage you never thought you had. Last week at the water park I nearly got into a brawl with another mom. I was waiting for a inner tube at the lazy river for probably 8 min and when one freed up another mom stepped in and took it. I promptly told her I had been waiting longer and that one was mine!!! Bring it! I was ready to take it out into the parking lot. Fortunately, she released the tube. It was at that moment, I thought it wasn't safe for me to be out in public. I also must have poked and told 5 younger kids not to cut in front of us and go to the back of the line.

So one more month of wild mood swings and general un-comfortableness and growing each day.

I'd pay $10 to see that side of you Erica! Funny!

I was just thinking the same thing... Moms fighting in the lazy river might draw and even bigger audience than professional wrestling.

Tpluckyt- all you have to do is to take our parking spot at church. It's a side of me that lingers in the dark and surfaces just once in a while

Jeni- I was wondering where you have been!!! I might easily end up in the newspaper with still a month to go...Crazed pregnant lady starts fight

Where exactly is your parking spot? Instead of taking it, I'd like to just park really close right next to it and watch you try to get in . . . :-)

Erica - I love it!

I think people should be extra courteous to pregnant ladies & old people because they've earned it!
