Milliner's Dream (Hannah)

OH MY! With your permission, I'd like to use your story and analogy with my childbirth classes when I speak about adjustment, postpartum depression, and getting on with "real life" when all the fuss and attention and support for new parents seems to just...STOP.



Fantastic analogy! Sadly, I will let you know that the "7 month itch" is only the first one. You will have many, many more. But the sloppy wet kisses continue as well and that part only gets better!


Aha!!! I was just getting ready to send you a comment I added to my own blog:

"Tpon... I love your comments because they boggle me so!

So, I have to ask. What is an M&M moment? And referring to a few posts back, what is a semiphore flag?"

But now, I realize too late... if I had read this entry before the question, I would have at LEAST gotten the M&M moment one.

Yes, how true. I actually had the 6 weeks pregnant itch (ie. what the hell have I DONE! I wanted this, but now my life is not my own ALREADY!), then the 7 month'ish itch. And, as Buffi said already... many more. There is also the "WHY did I want more than one child???" itch, by the way. Not that you should re-think the decision to have more, because you wouldn't regret it. But there ARE moments....

GREAT post!!

P.S. I still haven't figured out what a semiphore flag is???


Thank you, thank you, thank you, I said the same to Deviant Woman. I am new to the blogging life and it is so comforting to know I am not the only one with these feelings! It feels to me like a little life crisis or depression, but how can I even go there when I have been blessed with a baby when so many can't have children! I go in circles in my head because I know that if the people who can't have babies did they would have these freakin' feelings too! AAHHH!! Anyway, thank you so much for sharing!


Hi, I already commented on this, but I was wondering if you would mind if I shared this with my moms group? I am sure it will be a relief to them as much as it was to me.


Great post. Tonight Dutch and I went out to dinner babyless for the first time in nearly 7 months. And that's just the tip of the iceberg of lifestyle changes around here. Overall though, I'd say we've got a good M&M ratio most of the time.
