"The evolution of mum" - anyone got the version with 4th baby included?(3 Posts)
It makes me smile when I read it....
The evolution of mum
You begin wearing maternity clothes as soon as your obstetrician confirms that you are pregnant
You wear your regular clothes for as long as possible
Your maternity clothes are your regular clothes
The Baby?s Name
You pore over baby name books and practice pronouncing and writing combinations of all your favourites
Someone has to name their kid after your great aunt Mavis, right? It might as well be you.
You open a name book, close your eyes, and see where your finger falls. Bimaldo? Perfect!
Preparing for the Birth
You practice your breathing religiously
You don?t bother practising because you remember that last time, breathing didn?t do a thing
You ask for an epidural in the eighth month
You prewash your newborn clothes, colour coordinate them, and fold them neatly in the baby?s little bureau
You check to make sure that the clothes are clean and discard only the ones with the darkest stains
Boys can wear pink, can?t they?
At the first sign of distress ? a whimper, a frown ? you pick up the baby
You pick the baby up when her wails threaten to wake your firstborn
You teach your 3 year old how to rewind the mechanical swing
You take your infant to Baby Gymnastics, Baby Swing and Baby Story Hour
You take your infant to Baby Gymnastics
You take your infant to the supermarket and the drycleaners
The first time you leave your baby with a sitter, you call home five times
Just before you walk out the door, you remember to leave a number where you can be reached
You leave instructions for the sitter to call only if she sees blood
You spend a good bit of each day just gazing at your baby
You spend a bit of each day watching to be sure your older child isn?t squeezing, poking or hitting the baby
You spend a little bit of every day hiding from the children
I once read a similar version with the fourth baby included, does anyone have a copy of it???
I read one where
Child swallows a penny
Rushed to A&E
taken to see doctor if no appearance of penny in 3 days
Pocket money docked by 1 penny
