I have a story I’m proud of up over at Coffee + Crumbs today. Welcome to anyone who clicked over from there!
Truth is, I have mixed feelings about sharing this essay – Six Days Late, which I wrote about six months ago. I almost didn’t submit it anywhere, because I wasn’t ready to talk about this baby-making business yet. But I figured by the time it was published, I’d be pregnant and it wouldn’t bother me anymore.
I’m not, obviously, and although I’ve lost some of my squeamishness about sharing this struggle, I still have a hard time balancing where I am with where I thought I’d be.
More on this expectation vs. reality balance later, but in the meantime, thanks for reading. I really appreciate it.
