Ready or not, here it comes

November 22, 2010 at 7:50 am (Parenthood)

About six weeks pregnant for the first time, I walked into a baby store.  A mistake.  I wasn’t ready.  Twenty feet in I freaked out, turned on my heels, and hightailed it out of there.  Five months later, I reentered, happily.  Ready to think about the purchases motherhood entails.

How I feel about Christmas on November 21st is like how I felt about pregnancy at six weeks.

Give me another Christmas trimester.  The holiday season seems to last about six weeks these days.  Can I have two weeks more before I have to think about buying anything?
