I want to clarify that when I said I never thought I'd be a SAHM, it wasn't because I didn't think I'd WANT to be, but because I never thought I'd be able to be. I just grew up thinking moms worked (unless they were totally wealthy or something) and that's how it would be. Of course, my own mother did not have that option and so I guess I didn't think of it. I would LOVE to not work. But it also scares me, for several reasons, including 1) whether it will be difficult to return to work if/when I want to and 2) depending on a man for income and having no money of my own FREAKS ME RIGHT OUT. But I would definitely like to consider finding something that is 1) less stressful and 2) allows for part-time. We shall see. Fella is of the opinion that if I work for a few more years I could quit work forever, which sounds AWESOME, but I might rather quit for a few years now and go back later when she's in school. Maybe? Maybe we'll find a happy part-time medium.
So. I heard on one of my pregnancy podcasts that you should sing your baby a song every day while you're pregnant, and they will not only know your voice, but the song itself and will recognize it after they are born and you should sing it to them again in the first hour after birth. So I'm singing "Songbird," every day. Usually while I'm in the shower (so the baby will probably only recognize it if the water is running, lol) and it just popped into my head when I tried to think of something to be The Song. I hope she likes it.
