...and you know what? It wasn't so bad! I got so much accomplished without our usual weekend mimosa indulgence that lead to long afternoon cat naps. We played tennis, I caught up on laundry, lesson planned, grocery shopped, and even cleaned the bathroom - you know just in case I start finding myself in there more frequently.
Who knew? No booze = P-R-O-D-U-C-T-I-V-I-T-Y. We'll see how long that lasts. The productivity I mean, not the no booze. I've got approximately 35 more weeks of that left to look forward to.
On Saturday morning, however, first thing was first. I got Sleepyhead up and at 'em (gotta start training him early) to get a jump start on our day. We headed to Half Price Books to stock up on baby breeding literature.
I have been wanting to go baby book shopping since we started trying, but was making myself wait until it was the real deal. Such self control, I know.
But now that things are a go, I plan to wear out the family planning sections of the bookstore and all the mommy blogs out on the world wide web. Hey... I'm sober, I have a LOT of free time on my hands!
Mason was so embarrassed to be in the Parenting section of Half Price Books. He was all, "What if we see someone we know?"
I'm like, " We will inconspicuously tell them that we're buying for someone else...duh!" So smooth...
Anyway, there are a LOT of books about babies. I couldn't decide between the timeless "What to Expect When You're Expecting" or "The Baby Bump" because it was colorful and had lots of pictures. Uhh! But I HAVE to have the "Hot Mom To Be Handbook". Decisions, decisions... so we bought five books! A respectable starter kit. Mason even left with his own Daddy-To-Be book!
He quickly fled the scene when it was time to check out, however. Guess it was a little too embarrassing to be seen purchasing "I knocked my girl up" books on a Saturday morning. Don't worry - I made sure my wedding ring was prominently displayed while swiping my debit card.
You know what is the cutest thing ever!?! Mason has spent all weekend, in between football games of course, reading up on what to expect during my pregnancy. I am so blessed to have a partner who is in this whole heartedly with me and already looking out for my and Baby G's best interest. We love him so!
So now we're up to three people in the world who know about the little one. Me, Mason, and the guy at Half Price Books. I'm ready to shout it from the rooftops! But remember, I'm super patient! :)
