Happy Mother’s Day, moms of the world (or the U.S. at least – but you all deserve celebration). I will be one of you very, very soon. Between baby preparation and organizing the new house (see previous posts this week for some pictures), I haven’t found much time to read anything other than audiobooks. I have had Shine in my possession for almost two weeks and I am still only 100 pages in despite my, to quote Ben, Harry-Potter-level excitement for it pre-release. By the time things settle down and I can read again, I suspect it will be time for the little guy to make an appearance. But this is growing up, right? And on that note, I am ending this brief post to go fold some more baby clothes and paint some more things.
Have you ever had a book that you were crazy excited for and then put off reading once it was released?
You must be having so much fun getting ready for the upcoming arrival of your child! Just think, this time next year, you’ll be a mommy on Mother’s Day!
Yes all the time. Because I have ADD. Pandemonium is a perfect example. I have the damned thing since last fall, and it came out over a month ago, but I just now read it. Same with Nesbo’s The Leopard. I was excited at the thought of it, then when I saw how huge it was I got scared. My excitement is always very short-lived. Good luck with all the unpacking. Your little one will be here before you know it!
Ugh, YES on the putting off reading. I’ve had Insurgent for about a week and am maybe halfway through it. Normally I would just devour that in a day or two, but not this time! Real life is getting in the way and I’m not as excited about it as I thought I was.
I’m so excited for you and Ben! And soooo curious about the name 🙂
