Plus, a few reader comments (I have to say, the smart and hilarious comment section makes my day every day):
Says Emily on running into an ex: “I recently bumped into my ex, with whom I’d had an excruciatingly awkward breakup, in a coffee shop. He was holding hands with his new girlfriend. I had no makeup on and I had gotten my wisdom teeth out 24 hours earlier, and my face was swollen to the size of a small watermelon. I was so embarrassed, I practically shouted ‘I GOT MY WISDOM TEETH OUT YESTERDAY!!!’ Then I grabbed my coffee and hightailed it out of there.”
Says Katie on favorite TV shows: “My current favorite is the Great British Baking Show. I can’t think of a better word for it than delightful.”
Says Sara: “The Great British Baking Show restores my faith in humanity on the regular. (Delightful is the PERFECT word for it.)”
Says Danielle: “I love the Great British Baking Show and how I want to root for everyone and I feel like they are all kind of rooting for each other, too.”
Says Jessica: “Reminds me of the Onion headline: Mom Just Wants to Watch Something Nice. Ha!”
Says Beth on finding out your baby’s sex: “We didn’t find out the sex with our first two boys and it was a special experience. We found out with our third son because we wanted to be able to tell the boys if they were having a brother or sister. It was a different experience knowing the sex, and I felt very connected to him throughout the pregnancy. He was born very prematurely at 26 weeks, and we lost him after 10 days in the NICU. I hold onto the memories of being pregnant with him and secretly calling him by his name. Finding out he was a boy made it feel like we had him longer and I’m forever grateful for that time.”
