You'd think...

You'd think that being off work would allow me lots of time for updating my blog regularly. And it does. But I've been using my time for other things - like sleeping and shopping.

I really thought this baby would be early but here I am, a few days before my due date, with not a single sign that she's coming. It's frustrating, but at least I'm not super uncomfortable. And I've been sleeping lots. And there's the shopping. I don't know why but J and I have been slacking off on keeping enough food in the house to sustain us so I've been leaving the house, picking something up for lunch and going to one mall or another. I figure getting out of the house and walking around can't be a bad thing.

Then there's the fact that I'm in a mall and I'm spending money. This is not typical K behaviour but I've been coming home with a thing or two (or 10) every day. I'm not sure what J thinks, but he should be happy I can't buy anything for myself really, being comically huge and all. Nope, I come home with this and that for the baby or something small for Baby J.

The other thing that I do daily is pick Baby J up from daycare. This is nothing new, but these days I really cherish putting on jeans and getting out of the house. I stay there for half an hour to an hour, chatting with the daycare provider and the other moms, so that when we get home J is there. It's a little social time for me.

The other thing I did last week was I went and got a pedicure. I used the gift certificate I got for my birthday and now my toes are a sparkly pink. I'm not kidding. I chose pink because Baby #2 is a girl, confirmed at an ultrasound earlier this week. I've never had pink polish and think it looks weird but I'm trying to embrace the pink.

Apparently girls go by their own schedule so I'm also trying to embrace the wait for my little pink bundle to arrive. Maybe she's waiting for Valentine's Day. On Facebook, I asked my friends when they thought I'd have her. The answers ranged from that day to practically March. What's your guess?


  1. Ah, I forgot to post my guess! It's Feb. 15th cause that's my mom's birthday : )
    Love that you got sparkly pink on your toes. I bet baby girl is gonna be a girly-girl!
