Does it get any more glamorous than this?

Grace, dignity, and class are seeping out of me like crazy. I am too bloated in this heat to wear my wedding ring for the next 2 months of pregnancy, I put on PJ bottoms at 6:00 p.m. because I can't stand the tight waist of maternity shorts around my big belly,  my suntan is blotchy, I waddle because of my aching sciatics, my eyes are puffy from my continual need to well up in tears at any given moment, I can't reach my feet to take care of them,  and the kicker...I got puked on in sacrament meeting by Quinn. Had he done it 10 minutes earlier, we would have been home instead of in front of 200 pair of eyes. Bill had a work emergency and wasn't there to rescue me. It was like a volcano of orange juice and pancakes. Quinn was quite quiet about it, but Parker was making comments like "ewwww gross" the whole time. And baby wipes don't clean up throw up very well. Thanks to Karen, Katie, and Holly who came to my rescue. Bill did make it back to church on time to really disinfect the bench, lest you are in my ward and don't want to sit in the "pukie bench". Honestly.....could I be any more glamorous right now? 

Here he is sleeping on the couch when we got home. Poor things got a fever, too. He's such a cute sickie. I hope he feels better soon and I hope no one who was sitting around us gets it. SORRY! I had no idea.

Liz - I am so sorry that you are having such a rough day/ pregnancy right now. I wish I carried a rag or something besides diapers and wipes in my bag that I could have given you. But just know that every one of us who has kids has been there and you don't need to apologize for anything! I hope things get better!

You're sweet...thanks for the extra wipes. Happy Birthday!

Glad he's resting - hope it's just a quick moving bug... Like Natalie said, we've all been there, done that.

Hope your day improves - (and as far as pj bottoms by 6 pm, you aren't alone - and I'm not pregnant!!!) chin up, sweetie. You can do this.

And for the record, you handled the whole thing very very well.

Your not making me want to get pregnant any time soon :-) I thought you looked so good the other night. You really are such a cute pregnant. But I know how uncomfortable the end is...and the puking incident--that really takes the cake. Quinn is lucky he's so cute. Good luck! In two months you'll forget all about this!

wow I had no Idea that happened because I was late to church. I was wondering though why your kiddos were sitting with HOlly. Thank goodness for great friends!

Also, I totally hear ya about this heat and not being able to bend over!! I hope the summer ends quickly! Hope Quinn is better soon. Poor little guy!

No unfortunately, it doesn't.. I wasn't there to see it but you can bet if Bill was there to witness.. all he'd have seen is his beautiful wife taking care of his wonderful children.

That's all they see... right??

Oh my. Poor Quinn and poor Mom! I suspect that every mom the ward could feel your pain. And thank goodness for good friends! Hope he is feeling better!
