Daddy's turn

I suppose it's the fact that this is my 3rd pregnancy, or perhaps the fact that I have been pregnant the majority of the last 4 years, but I am definitely not loving my gravid state these days.  I hear other expectant women talk about the thrill of feeling their baby kick or the excitement of setting up the baby's nursery.  I just keep thinking about how excited I am to start losing weight and running fast (or at least faster).  As excited as I am about our newest addition, I am just having trouble enjoying the means to our end.
The other day, my daughter was looking at me and hugging the baby.  "Mommy," she said, looking at me with her naive little face, "I think the baby is getting too big for you to carry.  It's time for Daddy to start carrying the baby."  Hmm... now there's an idea.  I guess she's in for a rude awakening later in life.
