Reaction to Pregnancy Announcements (now that I have kids)
The second stage she lists is definitely a biggie for me, because I've often wondered whether I'm jealous when I hear of another friend having a(nother) baby and Dang it! Do I still want more kids?
Which brings me to another semi-related story that just happened to me this morning.
After dropping off the boys at school today, I stopped by a bagel shop that I haven't been to in awhile (since I rarely take the kids to school in the morning anymore). I used to frequent this place almost every morning when I was pregnant with Callum (because, HELLOOOOO fresh bagels! with cream cheese!).
The shop owner recognized me and asked how my "baby" is doing and I was like Oh Dear. That "baby" is turning THREE next month!
Time sure does fly. :)
