Today I’m heading into the Big City with a friend from high school for a day of chit chat and relaxation! We’re headed to the spa! It’s been a while since we’ve hung out, so I’m really looking forward to seeing her! I’m getting a manicure and pedicure, both of which are badly needed!
I thought for sure when I got pregnant I would never do such things as breath in the fumes of toxic nail polish, or eat any seafood, or soft ice cream, or drink ANY caffeinated beverage! I was going to do EVERYTHING perfectly!
One of the quickest lessons I’ve learned, is that pregnancy and parenting are a balancing act of choices and consequences. Every choice comes with one, sometimes they’re good, sometimes they’re bad. I will admit I have done things far from perfectly. I’ve eaten shrimp on my pizza, gasp! Had tea, coffee, and coca-cola, double gasp! And hold on to your panties ladies…. I’ve eaten soft ice cream!!! And damn it was good! I could go on and on!
That doesn’t mean that I’m irresponsible, or don’t care about my baby. I have made the decisions that are best for me and I’m willing to accept the responsibility of my actions! There are some behaviours that may not be such a great idea: taking illegal drugs, cliff diving, eating kitty litter that I choose to abstain from for personal reasons. It’s all about the risk/reward balance! If baby has a 3rd arm because of something I ate, it’s just more baby to love ❤
I’m so looking forward to having somebody take care of my poor, neglected little piggies! I really believe in the happy mommy, happy baby theory! And I promise to try not to breath in all that wonderful polish scent!
