Wish List

I wish that I can go this whole pregnancy without having to go on bed rest. Or, if bed rest is required, that it's only for a week or two and not months on end. Although, at least if I do go on bed rest, I have a stack of magazines to catch up on. (note to self: cancel magazine subscriptions)

I wish that these babies make it to 38 weeks. If they must come earlier, no earlier than 36 weeks. I still want to throw a Halloween party, kiddos. It's Mommy's favorite holiday. (Poll: What is a good Halloween costume for a super pregnant woman? Pumpkin? Donut? Violet Beauregarde as a blueberry? Other ideas?)

I wish that they don't have to stay in the NICU. Happy and healthy. Mainly healthy. Happy can come later.

I wish that I continue feeling as great as I have been (occasional migraines excluded, of course). I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop on me. It'll probably be a stiletto.

I wish that our cats adjust well to having two babies in the house and don't start peeing on everything out of anger. We will still love you, kitties! Who else will bring mangled bird-shaped toys into our bed at 5am wanting to play?

I wish that our house would magically have a basement (this one is a long shot), because we have zero storage, and babies tend to accumulate stuff. Lots of stuff. (side note: If you want to buy us a gift, and it's not on the registry, it must be a small gift. A very very small gift. No bigger than a shoe box. Please. Otherwise it's staying at YOUR house. [I learned this rule from my sister-in-law. It's a good rule.])

I wish I had a Twix bar.

Oh wait, I do! Nom nom nom.


  1. Ursula from The Little Mermaid is a good costume. Congrats!
