"Those of us who manage the public's dollars will be held to account — to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day — because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government." -- Barack Obama, Inaugural Address

I've Crossed the Line

I think maybe every pregnant woman knows the line.

On one side of the line, everyone tells you how small and cute you look for how far along you are.

On the other side of the line, people look alarmed when you tell them you still have _____ weeks left to go. They look alarmed because they are thinking that you already look like you are going to burst.

This line can be crossed in a matter of days.

I'm a small person, it seems my babies stick straight out, especially towards the end. I wonder some days how I'm going to make it to 40 weeks, or if I will. Only time will tell, but don't worry, Mr. Scared-Looking-Grocery-Store-Cashier, either way I won't be giving birth in aisle seven!
