What I wish I had known then and 5 Question Friday

First things first - Did you miss the big announcement yesterday? Yep - Baby Jellybean showed off the goods on Wednesday so head on over to see if we are Team Pink or Team Blue! I'm continuing to expand and still sleeping like crap. My back pain is intensifying so I will be making a trip to the chiropractor next week - otherwise the tears may be a daily occurrence. Yikes. Here's the 16 weeks bellyshot!

Cadillac looked to cute chilling in this picture for me to crop the big guy out! You see me in my last pair of prepregnancy pants that fit me other than sweats and cheerleading shorts. I'm about a week away from fitting in the maternity pants I've been gifted so it looks like skirts and dresses for me for another week!

Now for the what I wish I had known part of this post. As I was walking the dog this morning I noticed all the high schoolers chilling at the bus stop by our house. That got me thinking back to high school - and how I would grumble and complain about getting up at 6am for school. How when I was an adult I'd be able to sleep in and do whatever I wanted. If only I had known! Here I am 10 years later. I wake up at 5:30 in the morning so I can squeeze in all the morning chores before I leave for work. You know laundry, dishes, walking the dog, feeding the cat, fixing breakfasts, lunches, etc. Then I drive to work and whittle away 9 hours there. I come back home and do it all over again - dinner, pets, hubby, bills, etc.  If an hour of my day allows for relaxing - its been a good day. As a teenager I didn't have to worry about bills, responsibilities or anything. My laundry was done, meals were cooked and I had a chauffeur. What in the world was I complaining about?

My Little Life

Mama M over at My  Little Life hosts 5QF so go visit her and join in the fun!

1. Do you have any nicknames and if so how did it come about?

Di is obviously one of my nicknames - self explanatory. Or if you are my friend Scott it turns into Di-Di or in a sing song voice on messages - Di, Di DDDDi, Di Di, DDDD Di. A polish one from my family is Tuptus - it means to walk on your toes - since I did that pretty much from birth until  I quit gymnastics at 17. Oh and there was Princess - the story behind that depends on who you ask. My middle sister will swear its because I'm a spoiled brat (which I was) and at gymnastics it was because I chose to ignore the time limit on beam and just do the routine as I saw fit. I was not going to be rushed! 

2. What is your birth order amongst your siblings?

I'm the baby and I took full advantage of all the perks that went with it. I wouldn't change it for the world!

3. In a movie of your life, who would play your significant other?

Oh man- I have no idea. he'd have to be able to pull off a pretty convincing Southern accent and be rough around the edges. Hmmm. Any one have any suggestions?

4. What is currently your favorite song?

Rodney Atkins - Farmers Daughter or Luke Bryan - Rain is a Good Thing

5. Are you saving your money for anything right now? Big or small purchase?

I'm saving for lots of things very slowly with Jellybean on the way. We need a new laptop desperately. Day care, brakes for my car, a new sliding glass door, living room furniture, maternity leave. I suppose its a mix of big and small. The first step would be sticking to a darn budget though...

Oh man, I wish I would've known what I was in for as an adult. It seems I was always in such a rush to be a grown up, and now I'm wishing I could just be a kid again.
Being the baby of the family has it's perks! :)
