It's Wednesday and my mid-week rambles are BACK! Here's what's been floating around my mind lately...
Disclaimer: I am NOT pregnant, promise! You'll know! This is not an "asking for a friend" situation.
I was talking to a friend who has a toddler and all of a sudden I had a dejavu moment. You see, our conversation was one we were having just two years earlier - only she was pregnant than.
I realised that pregnancy is totally training for what's to come. Why? Take a look at our two conversations:
Whilst pregnant: "All food is disgusting. Even chocolate... I love chocolate but right now? I hate it. I hate everything. Pizza, pasta, salads, fruits - I hate it all."
With a toddler: "He hates everything. Even the foods that were his favourites last week he will not touch. All of a sudden he just wakes up and NOPE. Sorry Mum, you bought 6000000 bananas yesterday but now I hate them."
Whilst pregnant: So I'm sitting on the couch eating yogurt with soy sauce. Judge away, growing a human makes you do weird things.
With a toddler: "He asked for a peanut butter and vegemite sandwich and I was like "WHO WOULD EVEN DO THAT?!". You don't mix peanut butter and vegemite?!?!? Weird child."
Whilst pregnant: Cries about everything
With a toddler: He just cries over every little thing. EVERY little thing. That's not normal, surely?
Ummmmmm am I right or am I right?! It's like God was like "well, I can't stop human children from being weird so I better prepare the mother whilst she grows it".
In other news, why do we use the word gooey as a good thing.
Gooey brownies. Gooey chocolate..... the list goes on and on but I feel like gooey is kind of one of those words like moist. It's just gross.
Am I the only one who overthinks words?
But tell me, what's been floating around your brain lately?
What words do you think we should STOP using?
And if you're a Mum/Mum-to-be - what's something you've done that a toddler would probably do too?
