Obviously I'm starting to think about the direction of my new mommy persona/style. I had originally been thinking the "healthy/energetic mommy with mussy hair and big hoop earrings" route, but as each day goes by I'm getting a little more bitter. Now I'm seriously considering "desperate for attention, age-innapropriate-dress mommy" -- you know, start wearing the latest teen trends, fronting my stuff and asking Gideon's friends things like "How old do you think I am?" and "I still got it, don't I?" I can hear myself saying it now, "Mrs. Livingston was my grandmother. Call me Rebbie. Would you like a Zima?"

I swear, if he makes me wait until the 16th to get induced, he'll be in plaid blazers and bow-ties until he's 12.

Do all of it. You're gorgeous, you'll be more gorgeous after. Everything but the hoop earrings-- one tiny finger through those and a swift pull down and you'll want to seal Gideon into a tree until he's 39.

Ooh! I am ALL for age-inappropriate dress mommy. Sounds HOT.

P. S. I dreamed last night that you went into labor. Why am I dreaming about you? I guess I'm anxious about it.

I hope you dreamed about me because you have untapped psychic powers!
