Tomorrow marks an important milestone in my professional and educational career; this is the second such milestone you were a part of, which is awesome. You were technically just a few days old when I walked across the stage to receive my diploma for my Masters - little did I know you were growing inside of me! I use to daydream while in my Methods of Materials class about having my Masters and PE - oh how I thought the day would never come. Of course, timing is everything, and I am glad to have it behind me before you enter this world so that I can focus all of my time on you and AJ. So tomorrow is a very important day for both of us - it's not just my future, but yours, too that will benefit.
While I love the moments when I can feel you (it takes my breath away), I ask that you refrain from bringing me such joy for just 8 hours of your precious life. Every time you move, aka "flutter kick" as I call it, I want to stop what I am doing and enjoy the moment because I know in the coming months, those kicks will push on my bladder, and it won't be as pleasant and remarkable as it is now. I have no time to stop and enjoy these moments tomorrow, not until 5PM. In return, I promise not to eat anything that appears to make you excited, such as chocolate ganache cake! Do we have a deal?
I have enjoyed our journey thus far, and it will only be better after tomorrow because I can take time to read about your growth, research the products I will need for your well being, and I can enjoy all those precious kicks. I look forward to seeing you in just over a week, and I hope you're awake, happy, and full of movement...and not to modest.
So until the end of the exam tomorrow, take long naps and avoid the stress I am going through. I promise not to put too much of a strain on you - I'll leave that to the brain.
