I was waiting in the chiropractor's office yesterday, and I picked up a copy of People (May 17, 2004).
I was so delighted to see Brooke Shields holding her 11-month-old baby in a picture.
It's been so long since dd was that age! I love babies. It really made me feel such excitement and joy and this baby.
(When I was in my first trimester and wasn't feeling well, I read an article about her at a friend's house. She inspired me because she's so beautiful... and I got the feeling that she loves nurturing her baby.)
Then I saw pictures of Kate Hudson, who's lost her 60 pounds, since having her baby. That made me feel such a surge of energy to want to run after the baby is born. (I love running.)
Then I saw pictures of other pregnant celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, and it made me feel like it's such a small world... and how we are so much alike in so many ways... especially when it comes to mothering.
