As you can see from the ticker below, the philosopher mom's latest project (a.k.a. Baby 2) is done cooking. Elated by her success but exhausted by endless rounds of "You're so big!," the philosopher mom has taken to her room to eat mint-chocolate cookies, strawberries, and lentils. A strange, but rewarding combination of the sweet, the fruity, and fibrous proteins. Not recommended unless you are 9 months pregnant.
p.s. Things not to say to a woman about to deliver: "Is it twins?" (This question sends her into paroxyms of anxiety over the grammatical implications of such speech.) "I didn't think I'd see you again this weekend." (Mother wonders if she should have stayed home from Mass, parties, dinners, and any other such gatherings.) "Wow! Your belly is hanging out of the bottom of your shirt!" (Ponders the practicality of purchasing a new set of shirts for the last 2 weeks of pregnancy.)
p.p.s. Things to say: "You're almost there!" "Could I bring you all dinner some night this week?" "I love cleaning bathrooms. May I come over and clean yours?"
