10 (more) Sucky Things About Being Married to a Pregnant Woman

A while back, I invited a friend of mine named Mike to write a guest post for my blog after he sent me some thoughts about my post The Top 10 Sucky Things About Being Pregnant.  Let’s just say that Mike is not afraid to go there.  His post The Top 10 Sucky Things About Being Married to a Pregnant Woman went viral – with most people getting his sense of humor, but some decidedly NOT getting it.  Go read the post and then have a little fun reading the comments.  Go ahead, we’ll wait.

But there are a few things I’ve found that never get old, even after 7 years of motherhood. Here’s my list.  I’d love to hear yours.

Things that Never get Old about Having Kids - Toulouse & Tonic1.  That gut-busting giggle hysteria – you know the one – that causes your kid to clutch his stomach and roll over on his side to catch his breath – when he thinks something silly is really really hysterical. [Read more...]
