I'm trying to dwell here :)
Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, "For your sake we are being killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep to be slaughtered." No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
-Romans 8:35-39 (NRSV)
You try keeping a wild group of students in line all day, while fielding questions from well meaning parents and students about my impending child.
THe quote of yesterday came from a girl in my class. So far, this is the first comment from a child about it. Hard to believe, because my belly is getting HUGE and hard to hide. She said, "Mrs.Whitis, you belly is getting big". I said, "Yeah, I must be eating too much, huh?". She responded, "Yeah, if I wasn't sure I would think you had a baby in there." Me: (manipulative adult in her life) "Well, that's not very nice to say to someone"....
HAHAHAH. I laughed all day about it!!
I guess I figure if I "avoid" for as long as I can, we won't have to talk about it every day in class.
Today in the hall, one of my friend Rebecca's special ed boys came up to me and said, Mrs.Whitis, you're looking like Mrs.Bradley used to look. (She was pregnant all last year :) hahahhaa. I just said, What? and acted confused. I wonder how long the act will last. THe kids from last year are starting to catch on.
I don't know how you couldn't!
I can't find my camera, but I want to take a picture to show you how big I am. It's like it happend all of a sudden.
Let's just say it's all the extra fluid I'm carrying. Come on Briar, start swallowing buddy. I dont' want to blow up like a balloon! :)
As I typed this last night, my computer was bouncing around, because I was laying down with it sitting on my tummy.
These pics are from my school camera, so not great quality because I don't know how to work it too well, especialy with self portraits.
It looks enormous here. Maybe it is. I'm filled with extra fluid. :) I'll find out at the dr today how much.
