I read WAY too many pregnancy girl blogs. No, not the girls who are PREGNANT with a girl, but the girls who have more girl in them than me. You know the girls who LOVE SHOPPING, LOVE bigger boobs, LOVE decorating, and have the magazine-like nursery to go along with it. In fact, on facebook, one of my friends is pregnant and her friend made a comment that "maternity clothes shopping was the best part of pregnancy". (Take no offense if you are one of these girls, I simply am comparing you with me).
BECAUSE I COME FROM A DIFFERENT PLANET!!
Well here, in my world, I hate shopping (recall my shopping anxiety attacks), hate bigger boobs, hate decorating, have zero creative juices in my body, and dread going shopping (yes I already said that but it worth saying again I hate it so much). In fact, as I was out-growing my underwear, I almost had another anxiety attack (it took me 5 years to finally find somewhere that made the underwear I like and they discontinued it GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Now I had to go shop for bigger sizes!??).
ANYWAYS. No way was I going to have a fancy smancy nursery, I was going to have a "my world" nursery. In fact, we didn't even paint it when we moved in. We figured we would either not live here by time the kid was old enough to care, or by time he was old enough to care, he'd tell us what color he wanted! It remains yellow with teddy bear borders because when I first saw it I exclaimed, "PERFECT! THIS WILL OFFICIALLY BE MY JOHN DEERE ROOM!". I had accumulated soooo much cute john deere stuff over the years that filled my room at my mom's. Boy or girl, this baby was going to deal with my tractor paraphernalia!
Now, we obviously have to pray our baby doesn't grow up hating the things we like! EEK!
