Just What I Needed
I’m now 40 weeks +1 day, and spent today rather pissy and short-tempered, fervently wishing that instead of lumbering slowly about the house I was donning a sexy outfit and high heels and heading out dancing and drinking (god, I can’t wait to do that). Cakes is often quite perceptive, and she was unusually loving and obedient today. The icing on the cake was when I put her to bed a few minutes ago. I told her I loved her, and instead of her usual obligatory, hasty “love you mom” she stopped what she was doing, looked me in the eye and said, “I love you more than all the cookies in the whole world.” Sigh.
