Blogger and trousers: hate both

I just can't write any new blog posts.  This new Blogger template hurts my brain and although I have run out of loyalty for Blogger, I don't have the wherewithal to jump ship quite yet.  I do remember staying up late every single night messing around with my blog after Woody was born so maybe in a few months I'll sit here and figure out Wordpress with one hand while I have a baby snoozing in the other.

In the meantime, I'll tell you this one thing.

I Hate Pants. ("Trousers" if you're from the UK.) Specifically: wearing them. They hurt and it's an effort to wear them, but nobody appreciates it. Nobody says, "Hey, I notice you're wearing pants, and I know how much you hate it. I'd just like to thank you for overcoming your loathing of pants and wearing them today." Seriously, If you know me in real life, next time you see me, thank me for wearing pants. I need the encouragement.

That is all.

Pregnant AND wearing trousers?! Surely there is some kind of large, shiny award for that? But no, no credit at all. But just you wait, the first time you go out *without* trousers, then listen for the approbation... It's hardly fair!

That's what I was thinking!!

The great thing about wearing pants while pregnant: it hides the hair you missed or couldn't reach while shaving your legs.

A very good point, Mamma-has-spoken!

And it's a good back-up to have in case this baby comes whooshing out in a news-making contraction-free Super Labour!

You could be one of those women who has a healthy baby drop into her pants while she's shopping. BUT... you have to be wearing pants! So keep up the good work.

Another great perspective! I think. Okay, the pants can stay.

At least you're not wearing *the* pants. That is not a good thing for marriages, they say. Or maybe your husband does wear the pants, but you just get to pick which ones! Maybe you share pants.

That's enough from me, trying to be a smarty pants.

I agree, just as an aside. I hate both blogger and trousers too.

Every pregnant-woman-gives-birth-in-elevator TV episode I've ever seen suggests that women don't wear pants OR underwear. Plus, birth is 12 minutes long, maximum, and is free of all bodily fluids, including sweat.

One of the most disparaging things one can say of anything in UK is that it is 'pants'. So you're on trend in these parts - how about big, baggy ones with braces ['suspenders' for USA readers] that allow them, the pants that is, to sit under the bump?Can't be too much longer now....
