This is a bit more than sandwiches, but here we go… An intense fear of mine (and of most expectant parents, I’m sure) has been of having a severely disabled child. Honestly, I thought that it was something that I would simply be incapable of handling – the responsibilities, the sadness, the pity. Maybe I wouldn’t be able to love such a child enough. When my mind visited these thoughts, it was almost unbearable. So I avoided them. Just the other day, though, something inside me asserted itself – yes, I could handle it. Together, P and I would be loving parents for any child. And it would be fine. I would even be wonderful! Relief.
I think this was actually a poster or a flier, not an album cover. Unfortunately, I’m not sure who designed it. (Via Ffffound!)
I recently made the switch from yoga to swimming. My body was feeling cumbersome in yoga class, and, at least at this point, the prenatal yoga classes I attended just felt too easy. Swimming feels heavenly! I don’t feel cumbersome at all, and I can get a decent workout. And I feel amazingly calm (and hungry!) afterwards.

P and I were out for a walk with Stella the dog a couple of days ago, and I asked P if he ever worried that the upcoming baby would make us miserable. He looked at me with surprise and said, Honestly, that thought had never even crossed my mind. I love the way he thinks. And I can’t believe that I hadn’t asked him that before. (We’ve had other baby doubt conversations – money, time, our parenting abilities. But not plain old misery.)
