Five months since my last bitch-fest… and suddenly I feel the need to come back…
So the latest news around here… next week, around this time, if all goes as planned… I’ll be a MOM. Wow.
Yah, so… I guess I kind of left that out…
In the last 9 months, I’ve found that I’ve becoming increasingly bitchier at times… I am more easily annoyed… and have (gasp!) sometimes even spoken my mind about things I’ve often kept bottled up inside. Ooops. For now, I’ll blame the ‘speaking my mind’ on the pregnancy… but I can’t guarantee that once Baby B is born that I’ll go back to being Ms. Nice.
I’ve had a relatively easy pregnancy so far – no morning sickness, no trouble sleeping… no major swelling… generally, I’ve felt pretty good.
We’re having a boy… at this point, scheduled for induction on Tuesday, May 28.
I hope that I’ll be diligent enough to share some fun times here… but I promise not to become a “Mommy Blogger.”
Today’s post was prompted by the argument of whether to post pictures of your kid on Facebook -
I don’t really have a preference… I do feel like there is a limit to how many you should put up… where does ‘cute’ begin and end… and where does obnoxious begin?
My biggest thought about it all -
My cell phone camera is not my main camera – I never want it to be.
Facebook albums will never replace ‘real’ photo albums… same with Shutterfly, Flickr and other online photo storage sites.
This past week, I bought a baby book – one with fill-in-the-blanks and little folders to store random memoribilia. It was $14.00 and I just love it. I can’t wait for the day that I can start filling it out with all of Baby B’s info!
And one day, my kid will have a real book that he can hold and look at… everything I created and saved for him… it won’t be all stored online… and he’ll know I took the time to be creative and make something truly unique. No amount of instagrams can ever replace that.
So I guess that’s all I have to say about that.
