Remember the story about how I called and spoke dirty to the Frenchman? Well, Spartan thought he was very funny by picking up the phone saying "Bonjour?" the next day. Though it sounded like him - I wasn't about to fall for it just in case so it stopped dead. "Uh. Hello? ... Spartan?" *side splitting laughter from the other end* "You are a brat Spartan. You will be punished." That punishment will commence in less than 8 hours...I'm so looking forward to seeing my Spartan! There is nothing in this world that can put a bigger smile in my heart. The punishment might have to wait...maybe.

24 days to paradise. For all you numerical wizards that is a mere 3.43 weeks. As mentioned before, I have already packed... but I think I will have to take everything out just to reassure myself that I haven't got any centipedes hitching a lift. I don't think I want to put on my sundress and glance down to see a broach with legs. That might put me in a padded room. Permanently.

Babies babies everywhere. My friend D had a little girl last week. She's adorable. Like a doll. My bff Carrie is due in a couple of weeks - can't wait till she can drink again (priorities). There are several others will growing tummies scattered about. What amazes me is how quickly you forget how little and helpless they are when they come out... and how much fun it is to get them out. Easier the second time. They shoot out like a well oiled cannon. (kidding...sort of) But then there they are, like cute little blobs - leaky blobs that cry but have really cute toes. They don't really do much at the beginning. They sleep and they don't really "learn" to cry until their lungs develop. So it IS kind of like having a toy. I like that I can visit them and then go home and sleep ALL night. ;-)

I'm sorta wondering if there's a baby boom happening right now... or if i'm just noticing all these preggos cuz i'm pregnant. Either way, it seems that i can't leave the house without seeing a pregnant woman... and we all smile and nod to each other, knowingly... to those ladies smaller than me i give the "You just wait, you'll be here soon" smile and nod, and to the ladies about to pop i give the "good luck! i can't wait" smile and nod!!

also, i think de-centipeding your bags is probably a good idea. :D

I can't help thinking the whole centipedey thing isn't just the most transparent smoke screen for the ball of joy that packing and repacking for paradise gives you. So just come out with it, you're amongst friends.

The first one was hellish, painful, longwinded labour. My body kept shrieking What the f**k, there's no way I am ever going to pass that melon. I will never forget the doctor wedging his foot against the hospital bed to get some purchase before yanking my son from my loins. OMG OMG OMG. Super ouchy.

The second one really does shoot out like a well oiled canon. And I was so phased out on class A painkillers that I almost forgot it was me having a baby.

If I ever had a third, (and I am not planning to, before you ask) I think just plop out when I give a wee cough lol.

i agree... when they are just born it is such a magical time, but it was also very stressfull for me. My son just didnt really want anything to do with me, just his mom, until he turned 1 or so..

now its him and me BFF's and all, but im sure once he hits junior high that shit will fly out the window too...

Tamara said...

Hmmm... babies are scary. But then again, at 23 I figure I've still got some time to get used to the idea of having no sleep and playing constant host to something that never seems to stop crying and crapping. Hehehe... as you can tell, not quite there yet.

I can't figure out what Slyde's new avatar is. Kinda small.

Is it Al Pacino from "Crusing"?

elizabeth said...

diva - how you feeling these days?

bobo - you have figured me out.

Slyde - glad I could be useful. Not just another pretty blog I tell ya.

Tamara - I'm with you... but somehow I have two of them that keep following me around calling me mom. Go figure.

Earl - I DON'T KNOW. But - just for comparison I'm really wanting you to change yours to a wizard pic.
