Today I substituted for the last time this year. I figure since tomorrow is a week until the due date, now is a good time to stop. Subbing has been a good experience for me. (That has been due, in large part, to the two schools I limited myself to.) Today I subbed at the school where I was a long-term Kindergarten sub before Christmas. It was fun to eat lunch with the teachers again and catch up. And you know, I really like the attention that comes with being pregnant. It makes me feel so special.
A sister of one of those Kindergarteners (and a student who was in one of the classes I subbed in) told me she'd be a willing baby-sitter, if ever I need one. And you know what? She's some one I'd thought of already. Aside from being one of the nicest girls, she also lives about 2 blocks from us and has baby-sitting experience. This might work out very nicely!
Yesterday I had 3 fun conversations with 3 different women, and all the conversations began because they commented on or ask about my pregnancy. I love this about being pregnant. I didn't like the random guy who struck up a conversation on the bus the other day, however. That was awkward.
If I was giving a prize to the first stranger who touched my belly it would go to a little boy at the post office. It took me off-guard, but I was okay with it. I can handle children touching my belly.
I can hardly believe there is a little person inside me that would live just fine if he was born now.
We still need to put the car seat base in the car.
