Final Thoughts of a Pregnant Woman

I have often wondered if people think before they speak.  It has become very clear to me in recent weeks that I need not wonder any longer.  Needing a little comic relief, as I am quite weary of being super-sized, I began recanting a few of my favorite episodes during my final weeks of pregnancy to my husband.  I'll share:

First, I wonder how much thought goes into a complete stranger's greeting of, "You look like you're about to pop."  Well, funny that you bring that up, I feel like I could pop any minute.  Thanks for noticing.  I've only heard this countless times lately.

Secondly, as I walked up to the register at McDonalds last week, the cashier stared at me wide-eyed and simply blurted out, "Whoa!" Are you for real?  You couldn't muster up a friendly, "Hi, welcome to McDonalds, can I take your order?" I must admit, it couldn't have helped my case that I proceeded to order ice cream cones for everyone in the car.  Oh well.

Lastly, yesterday, as I was out shopping with my mom, a little old lady came along in my aisle and asked me if I could move out of her way.  She was polite about it and all, but the problem was, I had knelt down to look at something.  I wanted to say, "do I really look like I am in any position to just crab walk out of your way?  I have to find my balance and slowly attempt to get this massive body out of my semi-comfortable squat, which will likely include a few grunts." She then awkwardly went on to state, "You got down there and I wasn't sure you were gonna be able to get back up." Um, you could've thought about that BEFORE you made me move.

If I wore glasses, this would be me.

On a less grouchy note, my sweet mama came over earlier this week to do a little cleaning which is nearly impossible in this state.  She vacuumed and cleaned the bathroom floors and mirrors I can't really reach.  Thanks, Mom, you rock!

I tried to find a super cute cleaning lady to represent you.  This is the best I could do!

Hopefully the next time I am on here, I'll have adorable pictures of my sweet newborn.  Alright, Kyle, you've got 2 days to figure the way out.  I'll give you a hint.  Try heading down.
