Cartoon of the Week

So last night, I got off the phone with Mama G, who, poor thing, is just about miserable waiting for her little baby to arrive. It brought back so many memories of those last few weeks, days, hours... of waiting on Miss Alli to make her arrival as well. I remember going into work, day after day, and having people make those ridiculous comments, like, "You're still here??" Yep, I sure am. "Wow, you're just about ready to burst!" Yep, I feel like it. "You must be due any day now!" Yep, actually, tomorrow. I worked up until the day before my due date, which obviously Alli had just taken as a suggestion, not an actual date she needed to make her appearance. Scarlett, Eric & I were out for one of our daily walks, and a neighbor lady had asked when I was due... and when I said, "Oh, yesterday." She was just taken aback! That's when Eric and I had gotten to talking that they should just give you a due month, or a due week or so, not an actual date. Besides my friend Heather, who had her daughter Hailey on her actual due date, I don't know any other people who actually have their baby on the exact day they're "due". So, hang in there Gena, lil K will be here before you know it. I remember the feeling, but I also remember how quickly you forget it all once he/she is here! And here's a comic dedicated to you!

(The type is a little blurry, so incase you can't read it, it says, "It's Mrs. O'Hara... the one whose due date was 37 days ago... she's angry.")
