When I saw Steph’s twitter that she was in active labor and about to watch Baby Mama, I almost felt jealous!
Here’s what Steph twittered while in active labor:
- now under 4 mins apart- getting stronger! My mom is here, midwife almost here and we’re all very excited! : )
- still moving right along and about to watch Baby Mama- ha- i am loving this homebirth thing!
- coming along- definitely more powerful contrax but still enjoying the movie w/ mom, hubs & midwife!
No, I was not jealous because I want to have another precious baby to mother. I love my girls, but I’m not ready to birth another.
My tinge of, “Hmmmm, I wish I were…” was triggered by the idea of watching Baby Mama.
This crazy work-at-home-mom life of mine is so all consuming, that I — like most moms — have not taken time for a real mom-me break.
As stimulating as Super-Why is, I long for more from my TV.
And sitting next to me here at my desk is a screening copy of Baby Mama that I am supposed to review. But even with a ‘must-do-for-work’ excuse, I haven’t carved out 99 minutes of child-free couch time.
But, when I realized that I was almost jealous of a woman who was about to endure unmedicated, unmeasurable pain because she got to take a few minutes to watch a movie, it became very clear that I NEED to take a break.
So, tonight, when I finally get my little love bugs tucked in bed, I am popping some corn and taking 99 minutes with Tina Fey.
