6 Pounds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I did really like my doctor. I still do really, but she made me feel like I had exploded and transformed into the Marshmellow Man from Ghostbusters.
"Where did this 6 pounds come from!" she exclaimed.
Where did it come from? Let me think, hum. Oh I know! It was the 6 pound bowling ball I had for breakfast.

On a much happier note though, we heard the heartbeat again and I got to schedule my ultrasound.

Hopefully on March 9th the lil booger will expose his/herself to the world. Unless he/she wants to drive her mommy crazy before she's even born. I hope the lil booger knows how much I like to decorate and how anal I can be.

Thoughts From the Mouths of Babes (aka My Students)

So my students are more interested in my pregnancy than I ever imagined. You'd think I was having their little brother or sister. It's very sweet. I teach elementary kids art for those of you who don't know. I am amazed everyday by their concern and excitement. I didn't actually tell them myself. A few of the teachers told their classes and the "rumor" has seemed to spread without me saying a word. It's been fun to watch and listen. Here are some of the things they have said.

From one 3rd grade student to another who was not making very good choices one day.
"Stop acting that way! You're going to stress Mrs. Black out and that's not good for the baby!"

"I didn't know you had a boyfriend."

"You're gonna have a baby? Wow I feel sorry for you because that's really gonna hurt. My mom's done it twice." -a 3rd grade boy

This was said to me just this week.
"Have you gotten your baby yet?" -2nd grade

"Mrs. Black, I heard a rumor you were going to have a baby." -various grades

This one is like a broken record. I finally just made an announcement to all my classes about it.
"Is it a boy or a girl?" "When do you find out?" "What would you rather have a boy or a girl."

"Girls are better."
