I was absolutely *dreading* the Canada Day celebrations today, because I *swear* every year it seems like they must bring bus loads of pregnant women into town just for the soul purpose of walking around the park. I know that's completely crazy, but it crosses my mind every year!
I first noticed this phenomenon several years ago, before we had decided to try, but after I got the baby bug in a bad way. At that time, seeing all the pregnant bellies was a reminder of what we weren't quite ready to do. Now, it's a reminder of what we're unable to do.
However, I am pleased to report that the bus must have gotten a flat on the way to the park, because I saw many less large bellies than usual.
All in all, it was a wonderful day, and even though we aren't realizing our current dream, we are incredibly blessed to have M. She certainly takes the sting out of days like today.
