Things That Scare Me

...going under overpasses in the car. I used to have this irrational fear that a car would topple off the freeway and onto me. To tease me David used to drive super slow underneath them.

...birth (and I can't believe in less than 11 weeks this is a fear I will have to face)!

...horror movies. Although I love them and even if I have to watch in between my fingers I am still game.

...raising a child in a world that is so different from the one I grew up in. Why can't we just play outside until the streetlights come on anymore?

...when Finn barks in the middle of the night and David is on a work trip.

...one day when Presley will ask for my help with her math homework. #tutortime

...balancing being an amazing mom while also being an amazing wife. The more pregnant I get, the longer I am married I realize just how fortunate I am to have David. We're not perfect but he loves me and I love him - and with that well, damn, you can do a hell of a lot.

  4. Ah I know exactly what you mean about the dog barking when hubby is out of town! And horror movies are a big fat no for me, I can't even watch True Blood without being scared to take the dog out at night. haha!

  5. These all seem pretty rational to me!! You will be a great mom and you will find the balance I'm sure, it will take time, but it will happen!

  7. Theo's going to be out of town the rest of the week/weekend and I'm already scared about being home alone!! Pixie can bark like a mad dog but I think if someone truly came into to rob us she'd run away peeing everywhere!

  8. Love this- I can't do horror movies without having nightmares! I used to have an irrational fear of sewers. I was afraid someone would fall in and get sucked away...made sense haha

  9. I have a similar fear of driving on overpasses!! It freaks me out and I always feel like I'm going to go off the side! I think your fear of balance between mom and wife is so completely normal. You will learn a new "normal" once you are a mom but you just have to make sure you carve out time for just you and your husband!! It's amazing how tough that can be sometimes!!!

  11. AMEN TO THE LAST FOUR!!!!!! Love these. I have the same fears. PS, childbirth was NOTHING to fear. It was piece of cake once I got the epidural.

  12. Love this! And I wish our kids could play until the streetlights came on. What a world to live in!

  13. Hah agree about scary movies - same goes for roller coasters. Your fear about raising Presley in such a different world than we grew up in is definitely my #1 fear in life/for kids. You'll do great in labor so mark that one off, silly!

  14. I'm with you on every single one of these things! Especially the birth part! Lol :) I've learned that I just can't watch scary movies anymore. It's not worth it. I get too worked up and then I get scared in my every day life thinking that the movie will happen to me! I also really dislike the way the world is. It's so sad! :(

  15. I'm with you on birth, horror movies, underpasses, and math tutor time.

    No need for you to be scared of being an amazing mommy and wife though-I can tell you're already awesome at both!

  16. Yessss to when husbands are out of town! I'm the most paranoid person ever - my friends all make fun of me because I seriously set Home Alone style boobie traps while Nick is gone haha but hey, at least I can sleep in peace!

  18. Why does it have to be so different for kids today? What happened to riding bikes and never wanting to be indoors? Hope our future bebes love being outside like me. Bella barked this morning after Aaron had already left and I about freaked out! hahaha.

  19. Birth is scary for sure but so, so worth it.

  20. I'm no where close to having kids, but I am SO scared of helping my kids with math homework and have thought about it more than once. I've even told Andrew he's in charge of math and I'll have English/History covered haha You're going to be a wonderful mother! I can't believe it's only 11 weeks away!

  26. Man I'm with ya on some of these and I'm not even expecting (yet) "raising a child in a world that is so different from the one I grew up in. Why can't we just play outside until the streetlights come on anymore?" <-- especially this one!! :( I have a feeling you'll be amazing though!!

  27. I literally expect the worst every single time Georgia barks at the windows when Levi is out of town -- especially since she never does it when he is home! Giving birth scares the bajesus out of me too. I like to think that I can handle it with ease (heck, women have been doing it forever), but then I see what a ruckus I make over a particularly large paper cut and then I know I'm screwed. Ha!
