Well, not really, but my three year old has been drawing a LOT lately. He went from scribbles to people with heads, bodies, arms, legs, eyes, mouths, hair, and ears in about two weeks. Favorite place to draw is on a magnadoodle though, so unfortunately for me, it all gets whisked away and I don’t get to keep any of these cute drawings!
On Thursday, he drew the following and I took a picture of it quickly. It is me with the baby in my tummy and then Z (the three year old) standing next to me.
Bittersweet. I should be 20 weeks pregnant right now. It is only recently that the memory and visceral feeling of being pregnant has started to fade for me. The non-pregnant me is fully sinking in as my reality now and the pregnant me seems distant again. It took a couple of weeks for me to accept being non-pregnant, so soon after I’d started to settle into the rhythm and reality of being one of the “pregnant ones.”
