Today is the first day of my maternity leave. And when I say "maternity leave," I mean indefinite unemployment. That's a big topic that I neither feel like discussing today, nor feel qualified to discuss since it's only lasted a few hours. All it means is that I am-- on this occasion-- not blogging during the workday. Congratulate me!

In good news, I lost more of my mucus plug this morning, a development that pleased Heather so much that she didn’t mind being woken to see it. (She had a lot of questions the first time and I felt it was more efficient to just show it to her this time.) In suckier news, my lord, I’m still throwing up all the damn time.

When I first got pregnant, I told my mom about all the things Heather and I planned to buy. She began to grimace, then told me (with the spirit of her frugal Midwestern father flashing behind her eyes) that she did not believe that people should be sucked into such rampant consumerism where babies were concerned. The used dresser that she and my dad bought, she declared, was a perfectly adequate changing table for my sister and for me. I considered her point, but replied that this was not just a first baby, but a long-planned, much-wanted baby, and we were probably going to get sucked in. Reader, it was the truth.
