Hey little baby: the majority of the photos you will see of mommy pregnant will be smiley, happy, belly shots. The reason is that I am very happy to have you and am so excited to meet you.
Right now, I don’t feel smiley or happy. It’s more like pukey and sleepy. So for that reason, and for the reason that one day you might be all, “my mom is so lame” I want to show you what I look like currently on a daily basis.
This isn’t like, in the morning or a particularly rough day, its every day. That doesn’t mean that I’m not okay with it (happy wouldn’t be the word) because I am – it’s my job. I just wanted you to know. Just in case I need leverage some day. “Kid I was sick as a dog every day for the first ___ months I carried you in my WOMB and you can’t rinse your plate before you put it in the dishwasher??”
