Yrs trly was the special kind of idiot who spent her whole pregnancy in denial that her entire life was going to change, so I’m well versed in the many, many lies I told myself about what it would be like.

(Well, okay, not denial, exactly, but there was definitely a lot of very studious ‘well we’ll just think about that when she gets here’ going on. IT DIDN’T WORK OUT GREAT.)

Anyway! I sure showed me.

(Shout out to the childless friends who stuck around, though – if you get one of those, you hold them tight. :D)
