.2 weeks tomorrow...and counting.

Today consisted of floor washing and scrubbing with a scourer. Then, half an hour later, Oscar was busting to go to the loo and left it too late and weed all over the toilet floor. So I had to wash it again.
Lil cried non-stop from 4pm-6pm. I was really losing it with her. Then I realised that all she had eaten since breakfast was a mandarin, 2 rice cakes, a few crackers and my left-over apple core. I forgot to feed her. She ate all of her dinner.
I was absolutely exhausted all afternoon. I didn't want to get off the couch but I had to because there were dirty nappies to be changed, drink bottles of water tipped onto the tiles to make rivers (which ended up being deadly slip-hazards for Lil) to be soaked up, arguments to be sorted, washing to be folded, and dinner to be prepared (admittedly, dinner turned out to be baked bean and cheese toasted sandwiches).
I feel like a heffalump, I'm sick of all of my clothes, I cut my head out of all of these photos because I don't like my puffy face.

Sorry if you came for an uplifting read...I'm keeping it real today.

(And now, hopefully, after having a good whinge I will stop feeling sorry for myself and tomorrow will be a better day.)

Tone- you look fantastic! If only I looked as good as you when I was 38 (or however many it is) weeks pregnant!

Dear Toni,
I remember........
Keep looking up, not much longer now.

Tone - I'm feeling it for you - I still remember how horrible those last few weeks are. Don't worry about 'keeping it real'. We all need to do that more. Hope the next two weeks go fast for you.

I think you look great (love the first photo) but I understand how you are feeling especially about being sick of your clothes.
If it makes you feel better I often have days like that and I am not even pregnant!

While you may feel like a heffalump (don't we all in those last awkward weeks when nothing fits and that belly is always in the way), I could only wish that I looked that good in my jeans when not pregnant, let alone pregnant.

Here's hoping for a better day today.

Oh I remember those feelings!! ((hugs)) I love the book "Alexanders Horrible Terrible No Good Very Bad Day" when his mum reminds him, "Some days are just like that!"
Hope today is a sunnier one :)
Gorgeous photos though!

Thanks for keeping it real Toni. I love honest blogs! I have those days, I think when you're heavily pregnant your tolerance and energy goes out the door!
Don't forget to make some time to just STOP and enjoy these last few days without the demands of a newborn.
All the best.
