Things You Just Can't Do in Houston

Climb fences.....

Wear your cousin's boots with your skirt.....

Walk hand-in-hand along a fence....

Play so hard that your hair is soaked with sweat....

Shell peas.....

Play in the yard until bedtime with cousins and dogs....

Visit with your miniature horse.....

Good times, people.  That's what we had!

Ready or Not.....

  • I'm ready to not be so uncomfortable.
  • We do not have names picked out.
  • I'm ready to shop for clothes that will make me look/feel more "normal".
  • The nursery is not as ready as it should be.
  • I'm ready for this baby to hurry up and get here.
  • I'm not so ready for this baby to hurry up and get here.
  • I'm ready to see how Sadie will act with her new sibling.
  • I do not have any bags packed - should probably start thinking about that in the next couple of weeks.
  • I'm ready to stop having bathroom breaks every hour.
  • Am I ready for this life changing event?  Yes and no.

The Most Intimidating Place in the World

The community swimming pool.  Ugh.  It's bad enough during a "normal" summer, but this being a pregnant summer....the intimidation level is multiplied.

Moms, you should not look that good after having children.  It's really not fair at all.  Do you starve yourself and/or workout like crazy five days a week?  Please say that you do.  If you say that you're just blessed with such bodies, I will gag.  And must you wear such small swimsuits while I'm wearing one as big as possible to cover up?  Skinny pregnant women....I just have no words.

Women, is it really necessary to wear your giant rings to the pool?  You realize when the sun hits multiple carats of diamonds it can be blinding, don't you?  Oh, you do know that.  Of course you do.

Dads, if you're sent to the pool with the responsibility of watching your children, please do so.  Watch your children and make them behave.  Don't let them climb up the slide or let your big kids run over the little ones.  When the lifeguard has to correct your children, don't act like you didn't see what was happening when you were standing right there witnessing it all.

Men, please don't wear white swim trunks or Speedos.  Please.

I wonder if Kris will ever let us build a pool of our own.  Hhmmm.....
