Being pregnant and a woman

So for the last eight months I've been trying to decide if God is still mad at Eve and taking it out on all of us ladies, or if he just has a little vendetta with me. Lets talk about being pregnant and why I'm not so sure if God doesn't just dislike women. First of all we get morning sickness, then we get fat, then maybe we get stretch marks or varicose veins, then we maybe have heartburn or swollen feet, and then we get to actually have the baby. I mean really who thought it was a good idea to make a baby come out of something so small. So there are my thoughts on pregnancy case #1. Case #2-being a women. We get to have our monthly miracle-which I know we all love and look forward to, then there is the wearing of bras and high heels, childbirth, nursing, menopause need I go on. And what do men have? The occasional lack of control in their pants? Well my whole argument is that God is still mad at Eve for what happened in the garden and has decided to punish all of women kind. I will let you know if I figure out some positive sides to being a woman that might outweigh the curses!

Ahh, the wisdom of children

I am so grateful for the honesty of children and their pure innocence! This past week I was cleaning the bathroom-because I am an amazing housewife, and when I clean the floors I do them on my hands and knees-a bit OCD im sure! So I here I am in my fashion no-no cleaning outfit, with my hair stylishly pinned out of my hair, you can imagine I was a awe inspiring site, plus I smelled like cleaning stuff, plus I had just scrubbed three toilets plus I was on my hands and knees cleaning yet another bathroom floor, when my darling little Emma comes in behind me pauses for a moment and says, "Momma, you have a big bootie". You can imagine my supriese at her comment and at that moment I didn't know if I should cry or laugh. Since then I have checked out my bootie and yes indeed it is big, in fact I am not sure if it surpasses my pregnant tummy at this point-if not they are a close tie. But what I have realized from my big bootie moment with Emma is that I can always count on her to be honest. For sure from now on she is approving all my outfits and hairstyles!
