Another knit for the baby! There are eight days left until the baby’s due date. Every day I find little things that I would like to get done before he or she arrives. I still have to wash the newborn clothes and pack my bag to take to the hospital. I do, however, keep finding time to knit for the baby.
People will say the darnedest things to you while you are pregnant. Please tell me you have noticed this as well. I have tried to just smile and nod. Joel and I went on a date Sunday afternoon. In Panera, a woman stopped me to ask the baby’s gender. I love the look on people’s faces when I say we don’t know, yet. Just from my glow she was positive I was carrying a girl. One store later, same glow I am assuming, another person stops me to ask me what I am having. They are undoubtedly positive it is a boy just by how high I am carrying the baby. Well, to that I say, come to my house and help me get off the floor after playing with the girls.
These above are the polite comments. There are others. Public service announcement: if you are a stranger it is not appropriate to ask me if I was trying for a fourth baby; if this was to try for a baby boy; if it is my last pregnancy; or I am too young to have this many kids. I am not kidding I have been asked/told all of these. Please just tell me you wish the best for a safe delivery. If you are feeling extra generous you can add that I am glowing!
Moral of the story: I don’t go out much anymore so I have a lot of time to knit at home.
