OH yeah.

Yesterday I told my 5yo that if he wanted me to stand up and get him whatever-it-was that he would have to help me get up. He said knowingly "Because you're big like a truck!" ....yeah, I said that the other day when asking the kids to get out of my way, didn't think it would stick

Um, tending to my pubes is now DW's job.
Every once in a while I think that there would be certain benefits to having a same sex partner that just can't be compared. This is definitely one of those moments.

thought of another one!

...when the belly part of your clothing gets food spots on it because your so in your own way when you eat!

Fiona hates the heat of me cooking on the stove, she kicks like crazy whenever I'm cooking, and I can feel my tummy get warm near the front because I can't stand back enough!

DH trims mine for me whenever I want. He was actually the one to offer. :


Here's my submissions:

You can't watch certain movies (even PG ones) because they're too scary/sad/etc.

You can't remember what it's like to not be uncomfortable.

You are too tired to care about most everything.

And namastenicole, cleaning the toilet with a q tip! Hehe, I can't stand a dirty bathroom and since we have all these bleachy chemical stuff I wasn't touching the bathroom for a long while. I have finally switched to cleaning with baking soda and vinegar since I can't stand having to ask poor dh to clean in there everyday.

And one from moi,

You get to cry at the drop of a hat and dh is right by your side comforting you for whatever minuscule thing is bothering you.

I was just about to add the same thing, but make it 3 am... and contemplate sewing a new curtain for the kitchen door before the sun comes up.

Heh, yeah -

when "cleaning the house" no longer just means doing the dishes, vacuuming, sweeping, a quick once-over in the bathroom and a little straightening up in the living room - - - - it means cleaning the inside of the dishwasher, steam-cleaning the carpet, mopping everything else, scrubbing the grout between the bathroom tiles with a toothbrush, re-finishing the furniture, scrubbing the walls, organizing the closets, de-cobwebbing all the ceilings & corners, cleaning the drapes, and washing all the windows.

At a minimum.

To all you mamas nesting like crazy...when you're done at your house you are MORE than welcome to come over here and do mine!


A dirty house helps strengthen the immune system right?

...When your back hurts from being straight and your ribs hurt from slouching.

...When you burn your stomach trying to get into the cupboard above the stove.

...when you smack a person in a wheel chair in the back of the head with your stomach, in an aisle, because you thought you could *squeeze* past them.

...when you forget ingredients- like sugar, in a cake. Yummy.

(and along the same lines)
...when your kids start reminding you of things so much you want to tell them to stop nagging, but can't because you actually did forget all the other times.

...when rolling over in bed requires 8 different "steps" and then your not comfortable, so you have to take the same 8 steps to get back to your other side.

Oh- and I have to say, when the q-tip on the toilet was mentioned, my first thought was "What a great idea!!!"

Exactly. I wasn't kidding about cleaning the inside of the dishwasher. I also scrubbed the inside of the washing machine door. They were dirty.

Even I have to admit that I'm not acting like myself - and DH is pretty much flabbergasted. He keeps checking to make sure I'm not doing something I shouldn't. "No Ladders!" and "Let me get that!" might as well be all he knows how to say anymore.
