Friday Confessional – The World Just Changed

I confess… I was so darn busy yesterday that I couldn’t muster any kind of post. The prompt  I had chosen for the Writer’s Workshop was 10 things I know how to do. Surprisingly, I couldn’t think of that many!

I confess… I had student conferences so jam-packed together that I had to tell one kid to sit tight just so I could finally pee. THEN I had a staff meeting, which I left early to get to the doctor to have my second ultrasound!

I confess… I wasn’t all that worried about it until about ten minutes before, and only because of all the health things they can see in this one. I may have mentioned that I used to NEVER want a girl but then this time, I had a total change of heart and was going to be fine/happy even if it was a girl. Well, guess what? It IS!

I confess… I am actually fairly worried about raising a girl. There’s so much involved! I’m bad with hair and barrettes and skirts and then don’t even start on the whole pre-teen/teen eating issues/body image, etc.

I confess… I never really found myself drawn to little girl clothes either; how about pink camo? That’s about all the pink I could stomach. We’ll be looking in the realm of green/purple/yellow,etc.

I confess… I am still a little in shock over it, even though I kind of had a feeling it might be a girl. I feel like we “disappointed” family when the second one was a boy. Not like anyone has a legit reason to feel that way; no one controls that but daddy’s swimmers and even then, it’s a total crap shoot.

I confess… we’re working on names. We had one picked out but now we’re throwing around other ideas. It has to be unique but not too crazy. Ours boys have solid names that not a lot of other kids have but they aren’t crazy. So this one needs to follow suit.

I confess… I need this afternoon off; I had a serious mood swing yesterday, probably from all the anxiety and stress form being busy and internalizing so many worries.

I confess.. I started playing Candy Crush this week. I see why so many people are into it. Luckily, the lives work so that you don’t play TOO much. Because I could see myself doing that!

I confess… I need to hang up this post and get down to work! Have a good weekend, dear readers.

  1. Congrats on the girl. Every worry you expressed was exactly why we were relieved that both ours are boys. But you’ll have fun with a girl.

  2. Yay! I’m excited for you. I know you would have loved your baby just as much if you were having another boy, but a girl is exciting.

    Don’t worry too much about the barrettes and the pink. Odds are with older brothers, she’s going to be a bit of a tomboy anyway.

    I bet you’re glad to have the parent teacher conferences done for now.

    Thanks for joining the Friday Confessional party. Have a fabulous weekend!
