i cried today...

I've had a pretty rough all started when I chose my outfit. Everything was fitting perfectly, I felt pretty cute. And then... I had to put my shoes on. Not just some old flip flops or flats that I can slip on and off easily - today I had to wear my boots. Why? Because I am wearing leggings. Short pregnant women should not wear leggings without also wearing boots. Now, you might ask, where is the issue?

Well, the issue is that my ankles were a little bit swollen this morning, as they are on a regular basis these days. Again, what's the problem? My boots are pull-ons, no zipper, no help at all really. I couldn't get them on. I was hunched over in the closet, squishing my baby belly, pulling and tugging and nothing would budge. I'm breathing heavy because that's what I do now, breathe heavily at the simplest tasks.

I went to the bed to sit down and try to pull them on...not happening. So what did I do? 

I cried.

Because if I couldn't get my boots on...then I would have to change my entire outfit (see above about wearing leggings without boots). And apparently, to me, this was a tragedy where I felt the need to cry and have my husband comfort me.

Which he did, of course. And didn't even make fun of me. Just sat on the ground, helped me put on my boots, and gave me a hug and let me cry it out (but not too much, or else my make up would smudge).

Moral of the story? Don't choose an outfit where you have to wear boots, if you cannot get your boots on. It is a very very sad thing to happen at 7:00 in the morning.


  1. Imagine me giving you the biggest hug ever Kellie! I never got to know Andy well but he earned my respect for that kind sweet gesture. Love ya Kellie! --Steph Q.

  2. I'm so sorry dear! I'm sorry that you had to experience the tragedy of pregnancy hormones and silly things that don't go your way making you cry. This is when you need to just go into Logan's room and cry while you're remembering that it's all worth it.
