The Inevitable Conversation

Mind: Next week is six weeks already.

Body: Yep. I'm still recovering.

Mind: I can't believe it's been six weeks already.

Body: Still recovering. You hear me?

M: I can't even put into words how much I love him.

B: That was all me, by the way. I grew that.

M: Seriously. More and more every day.

B: You're welcome.

M: I can tell things aren't the same. Anywhere.

B: Ya think?

M: I get down on myself sometime for not having things instantly back to normal.

B: Give me some time, for crying out loud. Look at what I just did. Can I have a little credit? Please?

M: I wonder if I can start running...or should I say, run/walking (aka wogging) next week?

B: I wish you'd give it a rest and chill out already.

M: I hope I can.

B: You're going to get frustrated if you think you can just go back to the way it was instantly.

M: I know, I know! Seriously, I know. I'm ready. I'm ready for the first "this sucks and I just peed my pants" run.

B: (No you're not.)

M: I'm slowly but surely dropping this weight, and that's good.


M: My stomach looks like a deflated balloon.

B: SERIOUSLY I can't even talk to you right now.

M: I signed up for the Turkey Dash again this year...I know I won't be out at the bars driving my drunk best friend around until 3am like last year so maybe I'll actually make it?

B: If you think you can run the whole thing, you're on crack.

M: I KNOW!!!!! I'm fully accepting the fact that I will be wogging.

B: (No you haven't.)

M: It will be fun just to be out there and at a race again.

B: Don't forget. I just baked a person for you, so no getting pissy at being slow for the first few months.

M: I know!

B: (No you don't.)

M: No, REALLY. I know, I know, I know. You're much smarter than me. I think I finally understand that. You got me here. And you got me this:

...and because of that, I respect you now more than I ever have in my entire life.

B: Well it's about time.

M: I wonder if I will be OK to start running next week....?

B: Oh brother.

K. Not trying to drive you psycho, chica, I promise. There was a gal doing IM FL with a four month old at home! You can come back strong! Patience is the word of the year :-)

DaisyDuc said...

You will be back to your ole self in no time. 6 weeks is not long, just think how long it took to get your lil bun done! All in good time, sweetie!

I can't wait to see ya out at the races soon!!!

Wil said...

Getting to be one wise mommy, sis :)

Funny post, but I'm telling you, your bendy, hormone flooded hips will thank you if you just cool it and avoid the impact for a good long while. You'll hate the wait and the elliptical machine but you'll hate it even more if you screw yourself up long term.

I want to toe the line with you sooner rather than later. Be careful.

Amy said...

So so cute! I'm lovin' the blogger babes: you and Simon Whitfield have the cutest babies ever.

And I just have to say, I like the term wogging.

Siren said...

Oh GREAT! More crying. OMG he's precious, I can't believe I'm about to have one of those!

Jennifer P said...

OK, the first time WILL suck and you will think you are the suckiest suck that ever sucked. And then you will come home and see your men and it will all go away. And you will keep at it until one day your body catches up with your mind and it is a wonderful wonderful feeling. 10 1/2 months later I'm finally there. And it was worth every step and tear. I'm here for annoying advice if you want any. Because I've become one of THOSE mamas who just doesn't shut up.

Kim said...

hahaa he is so adorable!!!

dont fret lady, you will back to yourself in no time!

walchka said...

No one has better mind vs. body conversation then you Sara. ;)

Eric said...

If I don't see you before Thanksgiving I know I will see you at the Turkey Dash.

Woggle on.

TriBoomer said...

Wogg with care. B will appreciate it although M will not. At least not right away.

That's one handsome little guy. Uh hummm, sure is.

Stay tuned...

Fe-lady said...

Beautiful baby!

And when you DO go out to will feel wonderful!

Steve Stenzel said...

What a CUTIE!!!

TrainingtoTri said...

Gorgeous! Absolutely beautiful baby! You baked a good one :)

Kurt said...

I think you can start running slowly but racing might be pushing it at this point.

He is so cute!
