Is Waddling A Sport?

I tell ya, if waddling was an Olympic sport, I would be a gold medalist. I try so hard to walk normally, but it just isn’t possible. No matter how I move, I have this awkward swaying motion. And also, I wanted so badly to pull a joke on someone when they asked me when I was due, by looking shocked/offended/mortified and then telling them I am most certainly not pregnant, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. I guess by now, with the waddle and giganto belly, it’s pretty obvious that I’m “with child”.  Maybe next time…

This has been the first season that my oldest son has played baseball and we are loving it! I was a little worried before we signed him up that the schedule would be crazy, but so far it hasn’t been too bad. I don’t know what I’m going to do when he’s not in t-ball and the games are longer than three innings or when we have more than one kid playing a sport. GULP. I tell ya though, I’ve never felt such success at being a mother than when we come home from a game every week and I successfully get all the dirt and grass stains out of his WHITE baseball pants. Woot. Self-high-five!

End Of An Era

Okay, I realize what I’m going to say right now is going to make me sound really old, but is any one else super saddened by Blockbuster closing?! It feels like the end of an era. It baffles me that kids will never know what it’s like to go to a video store and roam the aisles for an hour trying to decide on something to rent. I have so many good memories of going to Blockbuster during college with friends debating which movie was the best and why our movie of choice should be the one to rent. I get it that Netflix/Redbox/Amazon Prime is so much more convenient, but it’s not the same. Am I alone in this sadness?! At least I didn’t get this depressed when VHS went practically extinct. Ha!

Can’t Even See The Light At The End Of The Tunnel

Well, hello there! I absolutely and unintentionally took a break for the last couple of weeks. This third trimester kinda hit me like a brick. All that tiredness that I never got before caught up with me. Also, we have started redoing parts of our house, so for the last three weeks, my house has been in a dusty, crazy state of movement and construction. I’m 34 weeks now (in case you were keeping count) and when people are told how far along I am, I seriously want to punch them when they say “You’re so close!” Seriously?! Uh…maybe if I said 38 weeks, but I’ve still got a month and a half to go! Blerg. Please bear with me and my anxiousness to meet this little boy and not be pregnant anymore. :)

My husband’s grandmother turned 90 this past week and we had a “Roaring 20′s” party for her. Flapper dress was suggested, but since I am 7 1/2 months pregnant, I kind of laughed at the idea. And since it was held on Friday night (the night where I’m basically out like a light at 7pm), I highly doubted that I could pull anything together. I did my best with what I had in my closet and it really helped me get in the party mood and I successfully stayed away until 9pm. SELF HIGH-FIVE!

On another totally unrelated note, I realize that my early morning riser is a very light sleeper, so if I stay in bed and don’t make any noise, he will sleep longer. So this Saturday, he slept until 8:20am! What?! Unheard of in this house!! I unfortunately woke up at 6am, but totally didn’t mind staying in bed for two hours just chillin’. Oh darn. ;)

So, I’m a huge fan of “America’s Next Top Model”. I love the behind scenes aspect and I’m not gonna lie, sometimes the drama is just too good to pass up. My favorite thing is seeing the photographs turn out at the end of the show. And a big part of that is usually done by Nigel Barker. I just recently saw a trailer for a new show (okay, maybe it’s in it’s second season and I’m just totally unaware) called “The Face” with Naomi Campbell and the handsome brit himself! WHAT?!?! That doesn’t seem right that he would go and do another show exactly like ANTM with another famous model. I would really like to know what Tyra has to say about this and if anyone else has comments or thoughts they’d like to share.

Are You Active?

The following is an actual conversation that happened at my last doctor visit…

Nurse: I have to ask, do you workout?

Me: Uh…yup, I walk.

Nurse: How often do you walk?

Me: Nevermind. Don’t put that.

Yeah, I haven’t been active very much lately, unless you count moving my spoon from the ice cream container to my mouth repetitively. I was looking back at pictures from the beginning of last year and yearning to exercise. And yes, for all you nay-sayers, I know it is possible to work out during pregnancy, I just can’t get my butt in gear lately and I seriously pulled a muscle “jogging” a mere ten feet with my five-year-old, so I’m a little wary to do anything. *sigh* Only two more months or so and then I can get moving again. But for now, I’ll just build my arm muscles up with my specialized spoon to mouth exercises. ;)
