Dear Fellow Preggos,
I’ve created a list of three sure fire signs that your pre-baby vacation is getting the best of you.
Number One: You turn on TLC’s endless stream of Baby Shows and realize within minutes of the opening credits that you’ve already seen the episode. Twice.
I have no valid excuse for this behavior. The births on these shows have the ability to inspire and horrify, regardless, it is inevitable that I let out a little sob when the mother first sees her baby each and every time. It’s addictive TV.
Number Two: You’ve painted a stick figure version of your family onto a pillow.
This one I’m kind of proud of. I found this awesome pillow via Pintrest (another popular maternity leave past time). But the version found at Uncommongoods.com is $150. Not exactly in my budget. I bought a pillow for $20 at HomeGoods.
First I sketched the people and animals on with a fabric marker. Then I went over the figures with matte black fabric paint.
Now all I need is the kid to make this family rendering accurate.
Number Three: You have made yourself Labor Socks.
This pair was created when I free hand stitched the letters on an old pair of comfy socks.
I don’t know why I did this. I just figured I might simultaneously need foot-warmth and encouragement. Not my finest crafting, but definitely my most motivational.
I guess I better enjoy this down time while it lasts.
