Love and Hate

I hate my dog. He ATE a whole bag full of jewelry I bought yesterday. JEWELRY. 5 pairs of earrings, a necklace, my awesome new Gossip Girl style headband. Chewed them up and swallowed them. He’s going to be pooping sequins for a week, but seems to be fine – although pretty scared of me after the screaming fit I had, threatening to cut him open and take my stuff right back out.

I love my new maternity jeans. I bought them a JCPennys for $20. Everyone should be allowed to wear pants this awesome. They have a regular button and zipper but the waistband is stretchy blue sweatpants material. I cannot believe how comfortable they are, like denim yoga pants in a very flattering dark wash. No more holding my button closed with a rubber band, no more jumping up and down to get my old jeans over my butt. I love you maternity clothes!!

I hate scales. I swore I wasn’t going to even look at one until a year after I gave birth, but at the doctor’s office they always weight you. I tried not to look, but when the nurse sets it at 150 before I even step on I know it’s not going to be good. I’m going to outweigh E in another month. Walking, hand weights and (once I get my cute new maternity tankini) laps at the Y are not to keep me from reaching beached whale sizes before this is over.

I love my friend FunnyFace, who reminded me of this on my dancing baby post. I was so busy picturing my own baby dancing I forgot about it!

    Plez to consult with your vet over this ungodly canine consumption!!! Glad to hear the jeans search was successful and affordable… :)

    Maybe if you’re lucky, you’ll be able to get some of that jewelery back once the dog is done with it? Don’t know if you want the dog’s sloppy seconds, though. I can’t imagine how much I’d have to really want that necklace back before I start sifting through poo to find it again.

    So your dog has a taste for jewelry, eh? Mine likes the electronics and has laid waste to multiple playstation and xbox controllers as well as some cables and some remote controls. But then within ten minutes she looks so cuddly and snuggly and I can’t be mad anymore. Dogs, can’t live with them, can’t cut them open to get your stuff back….can’t live without them, either.

    Bean doesn’t seem so bad right now does he :)

  6. Ha! I forgot about the dancing baby! I bet your baby is perfecting his or her moves as we speak — the cabbage patch, shopping cart, and macarena.

  7. Is it bad that I kinda want some of your maternity jeans for my non-pregnant self? They sound nice!
