I know it's not the right day of the week for !!!, but sometimes on a Monday, you just need some, anyway. And really, it's only one little thing, so it'll be brief.


I took a nap today. And for the past couple of weeks I've been in bed by 8:30 pm.


I feel like crap. I've visited the restroom more often recently than I have in the last couple of years, it feels like. And my 3-year-old is calmly giving me advice on how to make my "yucky food" go away by "spitting in the toilet".


My chest hurts so much I want to cry.

Why are all of these things !!!'s, you ask? If you haven't guessed already, it's because of this:


We've been trying for about a year and a half, and I had just started to come to grips with only having two children even though I really wanted a third...and then it happened! It's still early, of course, and I'm sure all of us know how delicate these first few months can be...but I was too excited to keep it a secret any longer (I lasted a whole week, heh).

I keep going back and forth between being really excited and thinking, "What the heck was I THINKING?!" (the latter is usually after a particularly rowdy day with the two I already have).

Here goes nothin'....too late to turn back now! Think I can convince my kids that I'm on bedrest for the next 9 months??

When you said you'd been in bed at 8:30 pm, I thought, "Maybe I should try that! She's committed to sleep."
Then I got your news, and I thought, "I'm crazy!"

I couldn't think of anyone that would make a great mom to 3 great kids :) Congrats!

I just re-read my post... it didn't make much sense. What I meant to say was you are a great mommy and I can't see anyone else doing it better. Somehow it came out as you suck... but totally not what I meant ;)

There is very little more !!! than that.
