Oh wow, I am embrassed at how true this is for ME!

1st baby: You begin wearing maternity clothes as soon as your OB/GYN confirms your pregnancy.
2nd baby: You wear your regular clothes for as long as possible.
3rd baby: Your maternity clothes ARE your regular clothes.

Preparing for the Birth:
1st baby: You practice your breathing religiously.
2nd baby: You don't bother because you remember that last time, breathing didn't do a thing.
3rd baby : You ask for an epidural in your eighth month.

The Layette:
1st baby: You pre-wash newborn's clothes, colour-coordinate them, and fold them neatly in the baby's little bureau.
2nd baby: You check to make sure that the clothes are clean and discard only the ones with the darkest stains.
3rd baby: Boys can wear pink, can't they?

1st baby: At the first sign of distress--a whimper, a frown--you pick up the baby
2nd baby: You pick the baby up when her wails threaten to wake your firstborn.
3rd baby: You teach your three-year-old how to rewind the mechanical swing.

1st baby: If the pacifier falls on the floor, you put it away until you can go home and wash and boil it.
2nd baby: When the pacifier falls on the floor, you squirt it off with some juice from the baby's bottle.
3rd baby: You wipe it off on your shirt and pop it back in.

1st baby: You change your baby's diapers every hour, whether they need it or not.
2nd baby: You change their diaper every two to three hours, if needed.
3rd baby: You try to change their diaper before others start to complain about the smell or you see it sagging to their knees.

1st baby: You take your infant to Baby Gymnastics, Baby Swing, Baby Zoo, Baby Movies and Baby Story Hour.
2nd baby: You take your infant to Baby Gymnastics.
3rd baby: You take your infant to the supermarket and the dry cleaners.

Going Out:
1st baby: The first time you leave your baby with a sitter, you call home five times.
2nd baby: Just before you walk out the door, you remember to leave a number where you can be reached.
3rd baby: You leave instructions for the sitter to call only if she sees blood.

At Home:
1st baby: You spend a good bit of every day just gazing at the baby.
2nd baby: You spend a bit of everyday watching to be sure your older child isn't squeezing, poking, or hitting the baby.
3rd baby: You spend a little bit of every day hiding from the children

Swallowing Coins (a favourite):
1st child: When first child swallows a coin, you rush the child to the hospital and demand x-rays
2nd child: When second child swallows a coin, you carefully watch for the coin to pass.
3rd child: When third child swallows a coin you deduct it from his allowance!

GRANDCHILDREN: God's reward for allowing your children to live!

I have a girl crush on Sarah Palin

Ok, so last night I actually sat and watched the speech given by the most amazing women ever. Sarah Palin is AMAZING. What an example to women everywhere. She is a hard working American with small town values. This country needs a women who is willing to speak up and take a stand instead of being a shadow to the president. Yes, her family has some PERSONAL issues, but why does that matter? her baby has down syndrome? Does it make her a bad mother for running for VP? I dont think she will ever let her family take a back seat to her VP candidacy! The moment her speech was over, what did she do, she immediatly grabbed her children. I loved watching the camera flash back and forth from her to her kids. Her young daughter is the cutest little girl. Such a proud girl! Yes, she has a daughter who is un married who is pregnant. Welcome to this time people! Sadly teen pregnancy is at a huge rise..... does that mean Sarah Palin is a bad leader, because her daughter chose to act like an adult while still a child? I was so happy when her boyfriend was on the stage holding her hand while Sarah Palin spoke. What a great supportive family. This women represents so many other women out there. Women who work to help support their family. MOther's of children with medical abnormalities, Mothers of teen mom's etc etc. What is wrong with a women in the white house? I hear from so many WOMEN saying she is a bad mother for accepting the nomination, she belongs at home with her children yadda yadda yadda.... Phooey... she is an American Women just doing what she needs to do. This country is in great need of a PERSON like her.. not neccesarily a woman, but a person. I am proud to admit that I will be voting for McCain/Palin, and I look forward to seeing them in the white house making huge changes and taking care of this country. And I hope in 8 years we see Sarah Palin running for president of the USA! I for one want a president and vice president who puts his/her hand over her heart in respect to the pledge of allegience. I mean, hello.. my 5 year old is more patriotic that Obama.
