Surprises for me!!

I was feeling very melancholy and exhausted yesterday. Ellen and I had made plans for her to come over and make a “Groaning Cake“, which is a traditional cake for labor and birth. Since the hospital won’t let us bake a cake while we are there, we decided to do it earlier and hope maybe it helped send me into labor, instead of easing my labor.However, I was feeling very tired so I called to reschedule our date.

I am so glad Ellen talked me out of rescheduling!

She arrived with the kids a little after four and had a surprise foot bath and pedicure planned in addition to the cake making. The kids played and I got pampered to the delicious smell of the cake in the oven. (I am eating a slice now, it is very good.) I even have pretty gold toenails, all shiny and sparkly!! Lee brought home chicken and we all ate dinner together. It was a really nice time.

Thank you Ellen!! There is something so meaningful about being unexpectedly pampered when you are pregnant. I feel so much better about the remaining weeks than I did before.

  1. That cake better work. I am checking your darned website daily right now and the anticipation is killing me.

  2. You are very welcome for the pampering. Gestating can be so difficult when the little buggers won’t come out until they’re ready!
