So I’ve been reading lots of pregnancy and baby magazines.  Every time I go to the obstetrician’s they give me free pregnancy magazines, and I’ve been checking out back issues of Parents magazine from the library.  One thing that I read really cracked me up.  The magazine article recommended packing make-up and hair products in your hospital bag, “because you’ll be in lots of photo ops!”  Please!!  If I look like I’ve given birth after Paulie is born, well, it’s because I have!  The last thing I’ m going to be worried about is what my hair looks like.  I hate the idea that women have to put on a perfect face to the world, even right after they’ve given birth!  Besides, the star of the show (and the photos) will be my precious, sweet, perfect little Paulie 🙂
