Pregnancy does strange things to you. It’ll change your tastes buds, cause blurry vision, and make those legs cramp up. It truly reminds you how much we humans are still basically just organisms.
Now, another thing that happens is your hormones kick in. Oh those lovely hormones. They have made my gums swell up, made me get pissed when my husband finishes the last of the mashed potatoes, and made it harder to control my moods. You would think I would be prepared for the next phase: weepiness.
I was completely bowled over when I started wanting to watch sappy videos.
An emotional engagement video? Yes, please!
A sappy video of a colorblind man seeing color for the first time. Gee golly, yes!
Where does it end?
I have never been one of those “chick flick” girlie girls. I hate sappy videos. I hate things that make me cry. I detest having my emotions manipulated.
Now, I seek out sappy videos and romantic what-nots. Now, I understand why all of those other women behave that way. Why they coo over babies and dress in frills.
Now, I have hormones. And let me tell you something.. I don’t think the world is ready for an already temperamental pistol mama that now likes sappy, feminine things.
It’s going to get interesting.
