Bring Back the Words Week 5
I’m participating in Ginger‘s Bring Back the Words (BBTW) link-up!
Prompt 1: What’s something you believe/support that 20 year old you would be surprised about, and why?
20 year old me would be surprised that I am a mom and I love it. In college, I was always the one who said I didn't want kids. I was going to be everyone's favorite aunt. Even through my first marriage, I had no desire to have children. Until I turned 30 and everything changed and then I got divorced and it started to look like having a baby would never be an option. Even more so, I loved being pregnant. I would go through pregnancy again. I just don't really want another child. This is not a surprise to me. Nor was the fact that labor was miserable. And if I go back and think about it, that was always my issue with having kids. But now I have and it wasn't fun but I'm glad I did because then my little J wouldn't be here.
Prompt 2: Tell us the most ridiculous moment of your week.
We are traveling this week so it hasn't been a typical week for us so I thought I'd share a story from a couple of weeks ago. I have a 35 mile commute to work every day on one of the toll roads. It's long and boring and I want to change it but it is what it is right now. Well, I was rolling a long one day about 2 weeks ago when I noticed this bird off to left side of my car. The bird kind of swooped down into my line of sight and caught my attention. Then about 5 seconds later, it flew into my windshield. There was a thump and then the bird was gone. All I can figure was that the bird bounced off my car and into the road. I'm pretty sure it died but I really have no way of knowing. But man, did it freak me out.
