Yum Yum Yum


I was such a jerk before I had a baby. I was an even bigger one before I got pregnant.
This is a post in which I eat my words. Good thing they're tasty.

The Things I Used To Say:

  • I'm only going to gain 10 pounds when I'm pregnant (try 35.)
  • I'm going to work out every day when I'm pregnant (if napping is a workout, maybe.)
  • I'm going to eat healthy (cheese) organic (cake) wholesome (chocolate) nutritious (croissant) foods when I'm pregnant.
  • I am going to do my hair (ponytail) and wear high heels when I'm pregnant (hahahahahahaha!)
  • I won't get stretch marks (wrong again!)
  • I'm going to try to have my baby without any interventions (had a spinal and an emergency c-section.)
  • I'm going to breastfeed (still in progress.)
  • I'm going to work out every day as soon as the baby's born (hasn't happened yet.)
  • I'm going to be back in my pre-pregnancy jeans very soon after baby's born (not. pretty.)
  • This baby isn't going to rule my life (!)
  • I will be able to put the baby down so I can get stuff done.
  • I can do it without help.
  • I can do it all.
  • I know exactly what I'm getting into.
Om nom nom nom. I'm like the Cookie Monster over here, stuffing these tasty words down my gullet.

You're not the only one who has eaten a lot of choice words :-) Being a mother gives a totally new perspective on the actions, words and lives of those who have become mothers and parents before us. Once we cross over to the other side we suddenly have the blinders removed and see the reality and at the same time lose a lot of the judgments we used to pass on parents.
