"me time"




have you ever suffered from pregnancy meltdowns (where you turn completely crazy for no apparent reason)? i had one last night....it was caused by the library calling to tell me to return "elmo's potty time" for the second time. i sat on the couch and shed some tears and said i need some "me time". it lasted about ten minutes...then i felt silly and ate ice cream.
ha....being pregnant- isn't it grand :)

Yes, definitely a symptom that I don't miss about expecting...you feel so out of control of your own emotions!!! Hope you do get some "me" time!

It's ok, you have a great excuse. You're making a little person, that's hard work !

You are so adorable, Shannon!

Some days, when I need some 'me time' I just go into the bathroom and lock the door for a few minutes. I get bored pretty quick and am more willing to come out and face my kids/responsibilities. :)

I hope the move/settling in is going well.

PS We have the Elmo's potty time DVD (maybe there is a book that you have?). Anyway, it is HILARIOUS and so awkward to watch the real life cast talk about potty stuff. I giggle all the way through it.

I completely understand! Except that I'm preggo with my first--- I don't have a little one at my feet to take care of like you do!

Bless your heart'

I have no doubt that you will return Elmo, fully pottytrained!!

Hang in there, those hormone rages can be up and down!

Take some time for you, it's a good thing to do.

Have agreat day,
Leslie

Oh man, that story sure does bring back memories! I remember sitting at my desk at work sobbing for NO REASON. Talk about embarrassing!

Thanks doll,

I so know what you mean... With 2 kids I had many {still do}. I was a fighter when I was pregnant not really a crier, but had many freakout/meltdown moments. They soon will be over & you will have a new bundle of joy! "Me Time" is perfect! Have it once a day if you can! Good luck...

sometimes I act like that and I'm not even pregnant!!

Might I add, that having teenagers makes being pregnant seem like a day at the beach.
No, not really, but hang in there and a good cry always makes me feel better. Do you have a "tear jar?"

are you kidding me...i melt down now (not pregnant) just thinking about being pregnant again. i hated being pregnant...glow?...that's called sweat. and having my grandmother in law say i looked fabulous with a fuller more weighty figure...yeah NOT cool!

Rather nice place you've got here. Thanks the author for it. I like such topics and everything connected to this matter. I would like to read more soon.

You are too cute. I am just three weeks away from having my fourth and believe me, I MELT DOWN TOO MUCH! My husband just pats my back and reminds me it will all be over soon.

Blessings to you.

I'm w/ Blue Hydrangea - I act like that sometime and I'm not pregnant either!

Yes! But ice cream and/or chocolate always made me come to my senses. Oh my poor husband. What I put him through!

VictoriaArt said...

Oh yeah! The good thing is I still eat ice cream and feel much better after any meltdowns, mine or the rest of the family....

Ah I am so sorry! Sounds like the icecream helped to kill the silly hormones :)
