23 weeks, 5 days
I can't believe I am 6 months tomorrow. I am just so happy.
Really - when I was having my super sad day when DH left, what cheered me up was looking at my baby registry online. It was just fun to look at. I just kept scrolling through it all afternoon.
Met up with some a pregger friend for dinner on Sunday. Really I'm friends with the guy and his gf is pg (they are getting married next year).
I had a really hard time not judging them. They are making very different choices than I. That is fine. Well, I keep saying that, but... I thought my choices out (I think) pretty thoroughly. And I know we have different life experiences that bring us to these places, but...
But really, it IS fine. And I'm pretty sure my plans will go out the window when an actual Appleseed has arrived.
This is just something I'm going to have to deal with forever - judging other parents is not cool.
So how to hold back? Or is it just like jealousy and IF? They go together, and you have to constantly focus to not let one overwhelm the other?
Or sometimes, I want to be like "have you heard about this other way?" - but that is sort of like telling someone their way sucks, and you are better. It's all in the wording.
I read too many books, I do. And I have too many hippie (sorry, en vogue word is 'crunchy') mama friends.
I am already a terrible nutrition snob. I will judge you if you drink pop, sure, but that's just the tip of the ice berg.
