What the Heck!

yes, this is my belly!
why would i post this picture? because it's the only picture i have of my belly at this moment and i have something to say, so bear with me...

i'm {eight} months pregnant (only 4 weeks to go) and cranky...

in the last week i have been called a mean mom, the {best} mom, a monster and a boring mom. i'm really not any of these.

i'm just tired, swollen, sore and, did i say, cranky!

So...

to my family {puter, your excused...}

i'm sorry you feel ignored, i'm sorry dinners are not what they should be and the cupboards seem bare, i'm sorry that i'd rather take a nap than play whatever it is that you think i should be playing, i'm sorry that monster is a word you feel describes me and i'm sorry that i don't have the patience to put up with the yelling and screaming and constant bickering that takes place daily.

if you would all like to pick up after yourselves, help with dinners, get along, and be respectful i'm sure we could make this next month much easier on all of us.

Oh...and P.S. calling me names is not funny, it's hurtful and RUDE!

LOVE MOM!

(and because many of you don't know me or can't {hear} my words, this is all said in a somewhat serious, mostly joking, but still serious and sincere heart)

Just think of it as preparation for the teen years! Ugh!

Keep your eyes on the prize, that adorable, wonderful, bundle of joy that is soon to come. These days will be long gone and forgotten.

What a cute belly! :-) Hopefully, the kids will get the hint and give you a hand. Everyone will be so excited with the new precious little one arrives. )And, I'll bet you'll feel sooo much better!)

Oh my sweet preggie friend......this too shall pass. We are on the countdown with our DIL. In fact today is SHOWER day and we are praying for NO more showers for our shower!!! I hope each day is a bit brighter. It has been a LONG time since I was expecting, but I know it is HARD work, but the results are SOOOO worth it!!! Hugs,

From one pregnant mom to another, I totally feel your pain.
I personally just want to eat out all the time, no fixing or cleaning up after meals. I know how lazy.
Have a fabulous weekend!

"mom, i'm only 6. i don't know that many conversations and i would like you to take this off. i didn't mean that you were boring and mean and i don't want people to think that. i am sorry that you took it that way."

Cassie Anne said...

Julie!! Love your belly picture, but we should do a real maternity shoot! :) BTW...Masyn is soooooooo cute!!

Kim Walus said...

Hang in there. I can so relate to what you're feeling. I wish I could come over and help. Sending lots of hugs and magic fairy dust to sprinkle everywhere.

Your little pregnant belly is beautiful.

VeeV said...

First and foremost YOU shouldn't be apologizing for ANY of those things you listed.

Unless you're beating the crap out of your kids...and your husband... all things can simply be excused!

You are EIGHT MONTHS pregnant!! ....uncomfortable...
swollen...tired...etc..

YOU should be taking it easy as you prepare to bring yet another life into this world.... and ALL the other people in your house should be pitching in and making do with whatever they can, and whatever NEEDS to be done.

amazing!!!!!
