I want blind optimism

I want to go buy cute baby clothes. I really, really, really do. I want to buy some cute little baby things so that I can look at them and imagine Wombat wearing them, playing with them. I want to do the things that an unafraid pregnant mother does.

But I won't. I won't buy a single thing until we deliver a healthy baby. It just won't happen and I'm jealous.

I want blind optimism, which is something I never really had.


  1. Natalie Portman refuses to prepare a nursery. She has said she is superstitious about her pregnancy and is "very Jewish that way."

    Just another reminder that you aren't alone :)

  2. And another reason that I absolutely love Natalie Portman. Thanks!
