I was sort of expecting its arrival, I knew that no matter what I did, it would come on its own good time. Yet, no one told this soon to be mom of two that it would be arriving so soon. The first time around you plan for its arrival for months, you shop for it, you buy it cute clothes, you impatiently wait for it to get here so you can show it off. This time around I was thinking I would do the same thing, except for one problem.....It came early, way to early. THE BABY BELLY!!!!!!!!!!
No one informed me that the second time around the belly would be here the second I peed on the friggin stick. Seriously, I needed to start wearing maternity pants this time around at seven weeks (yes you read that correctly, seven weeks). I am currently sporting a baby bump the size of the baby bump I had at seven months last time and I am currently only four months pregnant. What the hell am I going to do when I am nine months pregnant. I am worried that i might start to scare my students (or worse that they might harpoon me when I am not looking)
The first time I was so excited for this bump to arrive, now I can't believe it is here so soon!
This is a great biography about a dedicated ballerina who has been struggling with diabetes. This book covers not only Zippora's struggles with her disease but also her struggles in life in general. Having taking years of dance classes I was really drawn into the story of how Karz became a ballerina and her journey to becoming a ballerina. Next as a reader I was then immediately empathetic to her struggle with her disease as well as her ability to learn how to live with this disease and still practice dance. I feel that this book would be great for anyone who is really struggling with any major illness or set back in their life. As a reader you feel that pains and struggles that Zippora goes through while trying to deal with her painful diagnosis and how she is able to overcome her struggles. I think that someone who reads this book can use Zippora as an example of how to deal with those road blocks that stand in your way and still fulfill your dreams. This was a great quick read that most people would enjoy.
If you are interested in winning a copy of the book please leave your email address. Double entries are given if you are a follower of my blog!!!!! I love my followers!
This year unlike past years my little monkey did not want to dress up. We ended up bring his costume in a bag to daycare since he did not want to wear it on Friday morning. Of course, he put it on once I left with no problem (he always behaves at daycare, its a conspiracy I know it). Then all day on Saturday he was talking about going Trick or Treating. So after dinner of Pizza with both sets of grandparents the big moment arrived "Monkey, Do you want to get into your costume?" the reply "nope". That stayed the reply for the next half hour as grandparent after grandparent tried to convince, bride, sucker him into his cute Dino costume. Then finally momma took charge, by picking him up and wrangling him into his costume. After many a tear my little dino walked out the front door and happily trick or treated as several houses in the neighborhood. When he got home he ripped the costume off and happily retold the tale of his trick or treating to his dad and adoring fan club (the grandparents). So two days later the little Monkey is still retelling his tale of trick or treating and how fun it was. I guess he has a selective memory in regards to the costume drama!
