I crack myself up sometimes...

So today I hit an all new low.  I seriously reflected on what was going on in my life and I have not stopped laughing.  Wow, how mommyhood changes you.

So I woke up today feeling very optimistic.  I am fourteen weeks and should be feeling less nauseated.  Which was nice since I took my last anti-nausea pill last night.  However, that was not the case.  I was actually feeling pretty bad at 3 o'clock in the morning, with no relief in sight.  Finally at about 2:30 in the afternoon I called my doctor and asked him to call in another prescription for me to pickup.  Still in my high water sweats, tight belly shirt, oversized cardigan that was too uncomfortable to button, and ankle socks, I decided to take a nap before getting up and running to the pharmacy.  Belle decided to join me.  And wouldn't you know, she likes to sleep on my tummy.  Great!   So an uncomfortable 45 minutes later I decided to just get up and drive through Walgreens so I didn't have to get dressed.  Now let me reiterate.  I usually do not even take out the garbage without a cute outfit on.  So, the fact that I even put together this ensemble and left the house in it (no shoes even) just cracked me up.  I am still too decent to show pictures, but the story gets better...

As I drove into the Walgreens parking lot I realized that I had to pee.  Too bad there were seven, count them, seven cars in front of me.  And I didn't have shoes on.  So there I sat, crossing my legs every time I could put my car in park, waiting for my pills.  At last I got them and like any true drug addict I popped one right away, guzzling water that I shouldn't have.  But instead of going home to go to the bathroom, I knew I needed to get food.  Otherwise I would get home and have nothing to eat (the grocery store hasn't been my friend lately.)  So I took my beautiful self to the nearest Taco Bell to get some grub.  My mom ate it everyday when she was pregnant with me, and I turned out fine.  But while I was sitting in the line waiting for food (remember no shoes :o) I saw this family that made me burst into tears.  The mom was blonde.  The dad was blonde.  They had four kids.  One had obviously just gotten off basketball practice the other two were twins and the mom was carrying the little baby.  I don;t know what it was but I just lost it.  I saw my future and I just couldn't wait to be that family, instead of my pathetic self in the car, no make up on, popping pills so I didn't throw up on myself.  

So I got my food and sat in the parking lot crying my eyes out, until I just started laughing hysterically!  I am just a mess.  But I thought I would share it with you since it really did turn out being pretty funny. :o)

You will be shocked by the outfits, hairdos and levels of cleanliness that you will allow yourself in the first year. I think I actually went to the store in bright orange Crocs and a "Pop it Like it's Hot!" t-shirt about a month after Declan was born.

You are so normal...all of us have that story in some way or another. Also- taco bell was what I ate pretty much exclusively while prego. Bean Burritos have this funny way of not making you feel so yuck...haha. We should make a new marketing campaign and become rich!

Jenni, I can promise you that even if you have 9 months of pucking, followed by 4 months of a crying, colicy baby...it WILL be worth it.

You'll wonder what you ever spent your days doing, before, and you will realize life would be pointless without your little one to care for. Then, of course, they will go down for a nap and you will begin on a project that resembles a hobby or career you used to have and you will start to remember what you used to do...and then they will wake up. ...But, then there will be that smile...nothing better.

I would have paid to see that!!:) Too funny. Just think, your almost half way there. You are amazing for dealing with all the sickness and still having a smile on your face every time I see you.

I agree with Sarah! Bean burritos are magical while pregnant! I do believe that I started to cry uncontrollably while my husband was kissing my ear and my dog was trying to eat the socks I was wearing at the same time. Don't worry! *Congrats to you too!!

Jenni, I kind of don't even know what to say! This story made me laugh. But seriously, you've managed to NOT puke any time that I've seen you in the last 14 weeks, and you've managed to look totally cute every time too! You will be super-mom!
