Seeing Double

Two completely unrelated things:

(1) I found out why the nanny needed to take yesterday off - she was interviewing for a part-time nanny position that she will likely accept. The catch? It's from 6pm to 12am, 4 days a week! I immediately felt horrible. As a WOHM, I am completely sensitive to the how moms feel when they are forced to sacrifice quality time with their kids in order to pay the bills. She must feel terrible to have to miss the evenings with her 12-year-old daughter. And her daughter must be upset too. Not mention that her days will be exhausting. How I wish we could pay her more so that she wouldn't need to work a double shift.

(2) Speaking of double, I swear that when I looked in the mirror today I saw a DOUBLE CHIN. I almost fainted. I just asked my co-worker and she says I'm seeing things and that I'm wearing the pregnancy very well, but she's clearly lying to be nice. I. Saw. It.

Ugh.

Wow, that's terrible. Gas prices are killing us. Re: the double chin, let me assure you that you don't have one. As I said two weeks ago, you look very thin, except for the tummy of course.

it must have been funny lighting or a weird angle b/c i rarely see a pregnant woman look so trim and glowy and great.

You know, you could show folks a picture of your pretty, pregnant self. I'm sure you're just over exaggerating.
