So the pool picture is me right around a year old. And the next picture is from the birthday party where I received a goat as a present.Truly, I did. He cried all night, he pooped everywhere. And the next day, my dad said he had to go. No cry-all-nighting-yard-pooping goats for us.
It was Bangladesh. Odder things happened.
Jordaan was there - right there, in fact - grinning at the camera, green hat (Why? Why the green elf hats in August?) and all. He could tell you.
So today is July 13th, and a month from today, I turn 40.
Also, a month from today is my due date.
Although I realize that a due date is more of a sort of vague suggestion and my OB seems to be more like, here's your target but who really knows.
But you see, last November, when I was peeing on those sticks, I remember looking at the online calculator and it said something like, "If you get pregnant on this day, here's your due date."
And it was my birthday. And I thought, "A baby with my same birthday! How cool would that be!?"
And 13 is my favorite number, and I'd be happy to share it.
Although now I think, "How cool would it be to have an empty uterus for my birthday?"
But then I peed on all those sticks and never really got the two clear lines and was wondering if I even ovulated. And then of course it turned out that I did and then we were all knocked up and here we are.
And I am thinking about all this because we went to our friend Amanda's surprise 40th birthday party last night. Yesterday morning, I was talking to Nick about how my birthday is a month from today.
And I was all, "You know, I always thought I'd do something really big for my 40th."
*Also, because of HKW's comment, I just had to add to the title. It makes me laugh every time I say it.
