I’ve always wanted to be a Mom. I was thrilled to become pregnant with my son a decade ago (how the heck do I have an almost 10 year old?!) and again five years ago when I had my daughter. Having some experience now, I often find myself saying “Motherhood is not for the weak.” It’s fun, it’s beautiful, but it’s also terrifying. There are even times when it can be heartbreaking.
I have a countdown to draft day and the season opener (Thursday, September 15 against the Jets, in case you were wondering). I follow players on social media. I even once caught myself tuning into an AM radio station press conference while in the TJ Maxx parking lot. To be honest, I don’t even know who I am anymore considering that before this past year, I’ve never really cared about sports or watched a full game of anything.
Last weekend, we were given the opportunity to check out the Beyond the Bump event at the Hyatt Regency downtown. Since I’m not pregnant, I wasn’t sure what to expect of the event or what I would get from it (other than a slight hint of baby fever which I have since managed to kick, but that’s neither here nor there). I went with two of my girlfriends, one who has an almost-two year old little boy and the other who is a first time mom-to-be due at the end of May!
