Now that I'm pregnant and especially now that I'm so close other parents often say to me, "You'll find out soon enough." Today I was on the phone with my best friend and her youngest son was giving her a hard time today. The poor little guy was in the ER with an ear infection just days ago and the little bugger still doesn't feel good. He's driving his mom crazy though because he won't stop whining and crying and he's been like this for days. I feel bad for her because I know she's annoyed and she wants to get stuff done and can't because her baby is only happy when she's holding him. I feel bad for him because he's sick and just wants his mommy. Of course through her frustration she tells me I'll find out soon enough. I'm sure I will and I'll probably call her when I'm at my wits end too.
Josh and I also hear, "your life is going to change" or "your life will never be the same" all the time. We'd love to say "well, no s*&! Sherlock", but instead we smile and say, "we're looking forward to it." The reality is that we want our lives to change that's why we decided to have a baby. We have been hoping for this change and planning for 3 years and now it's finally happening. We're in our 30s, we're ready for the change. If we were in our 20s and still bar hopping every weekend with friends without kids this would probably be a shock to the system. We're over all that and our friends all have kids too so our lifestyle though it may change a little probably won't be as much as for a younger couple. Now we just can't wait for her to get here so the real change can begin.
