I got the chance to head out to a Christmas party this evening. I used to be really shy about workplace gatherings, but I’ve started to enjoy them in recent years. I guess time changes everything.
Dressing up for the event was a bit of a challenge. I finally understand what it’s like for none of my clothes to fit me; I’m a stranger in my own body. It’s not a terrible feeling, but it does make me feel very in touch with my feminine side.
If nothing else, pregnancy has educated me about the struggles that mothers everywhere have faced for EVER. Sickness, anxiety, discomfort, and exhaustion – everyone faces them. It’s amazing to think that we all have that much in common.
Tonight was great, but I’m ready to fall into bed before midnight. Hope your holiday season is getting off to a great start!
