These are the questions I seem to be getting a lot lately at social functions.
1. How old is your little one?
A. Sisi is almost 20 months.
Which leads promptly to...
2. Are you going to add another little one to your clan soon?
A. Not yet, but hopefully soon! I'd like to be able to surf on our Costa Rica trip in January, and you can't do that with a baby bump! Sounds like a stupid reason to postpone babymaking, but really, we're in no rush. Also, I'm in 2 weddings in August, and it'd be nice to not be too pregnant to travel to them.
3. Now that you're on the paleo diet, what are you going to eat if you get pregnant again?
A. I have no idea! I lived on pretzels and mac n' cheese during my first pregnancy. I hope that even if meat makes me squeamish, fresh fruits and veggies and plantain chips will still be appealing. Crossing fingers.
4. Would you do a natural birth again?
A. Absolutely! No doubt about that. It was way more pain than I expected, but it was also a swift, smooth birth and I trusted my midwife completely. I would love to have a similar birth experience next time, Lord willing. Same midwives, same doula, and same hot tub in my living room :)
5. Do you miss the flower business?
A. Yes, and No . When I see the amazing work my industry friends continue to put out there in magazines and blogs, I miss it and wish I could join them. But I love being a stay at home mom way more. It's my dream job, and I keep striving to do it more excellently. I get just as much pleasure doing a few floral arrangements for friends' baby showers than I do making a huge flower-drenched wedding arch. I now realize that I love flowers a lot more than I love owning a flower business. Plus, my accessories boutique is the perfect outlet for my creativity. I enjoy crafting just as much as I enjoy floral design.
So there ya go! In case you were at all curious :)
