Okay, so this poster is more for the menopausal woman, but I can't help but laugh and think about it, lately.
I first saw this poster about 7 1/2 years ago--when I was pregnant with our 3rd child. It was hanging in the bathroom at my doctor's office and I thought it was funny.
I've heard it said that with a new baby each day seems like a week, yet somehow that first year flies by! How true. Each day is quite long, filled with a lot of the same little baby tasks. He is so cute, so soft, so fuzzy (his hair) and so sweet that I don't mind at all! But, my hormones are definitely trying to right themselves, because I find myself getting teary-eyed about little things. I wasn't even emotional during my pregnancy, never cried during testimony meetings or anyone's lessons. But, the the tables have turned, for now I am all weepy!
Yesterday, Easter, the kids and I watched, "To This End Was I Born", a short LDS film about the Savior's final hours and I was a mess. Worse, at these times, one of the kids will say, "Guys! Mom's crying!" And then all eyes are on me. Sheesh.
So, what set me off today? Child #4 and I decided to put up a mobile on the crib for the baby. I was given this mobile when my oldest was born. I can't help but reflect on how FAST my daughter has grown from infant to tweenager! Oh, the tears....
I know I will look back at this post in a few months and chuckle. But, for now...."Has anyone seen my hormones?!"
