I vaguely recall, a number of posts ago, claiming that I would not become a mommy blogger. Now, 25 or so posts tagged with 'babystuff' later, I admit it. I'm obsessed. More than obsessed. So, when given the challenge to not speak about, well, babystuff, for a whole multi-course meal (Thor's birthday dinner...I took him out for Australian), I wasn't sure it could be done.
But, I did it. It wasn't easy, whenever it was my turn to speak, I felt the urge to bring up something kiddie-related. Not that I had anything particularly kiddie-related to say, mind you. But I resisted. We talked about political and social issues, movies, music, travel, just like real people do. I was quite impressed with myself.
And then I came home and immediately logged onto a pregnancy forum, like an asthmatic in need of an inhaler. I'm much better now, thank you.
