Third time's the charm


While I could very well blame this extended belly on the number of fried donuts and potato latkes I have consumed over the last five days - indeed there was never a more enthusiastic Hanukkah celebrant - in fact I am pregnant and the baby is due at the end of May. (The belly is not actually as large as it would appear in this dramatized photo, but still - third pregnancy starts showing at about four weeks and a day. Delightful.).

And my many feelings on the subject range from relief and joy to anxiety and terror. So that's been fun. Very relaxing. It may also explain why I haven't been able to do much of anything besides eat chicken apple sausage. But the nausea seems to have ended and I'm not quite as exhausted (as in I'm not falling asleep in the middle of a titillating game of Zingo, although admittedly this has also happened while not pregnant).

I also bought an iphone.

Which reminds me of the scene from Fiddler on the Roof when someone runs in and says "she's here! she's here!" and we're meant to believe that Tseidel had her baby and then it cuts to the scene where Motel the tailor is using a peddle sewing machine and Tseidel has already had the baby which is not nearly as exciting news as the arrival of the new foot-powered sewing machine.

To celebrate this news with you (the baby, not the iphone) I am hosting a sale in the shop through this Friday, December 10th. Since every third child knows the third time's the charm, use the code CHARM3 and get 30% off your order. All orders will go out by December 17 and then the shop closes down for some holiday travel and merry making.

Happy shopping! xo

Mazal tov! The photo is so adorable, I am smiling from ear to ear. I guess your life just got a lot busier! What a wonderful Chanukkah gift!

Oohhhh!!! Congratulations!! On the baby AND the iPhone. I've said it before and I'll say it again, sometimes I love my iPhone more than my children. But only sometimes.

Massive congratulations! Whilst I don't have kids I do love to hear funny stories of the things they get up to and you are one of the greatest story tellers I've come across yet so this 3rd baby will provide you with more great tales to share!!

Susie! I just did ann audible inhale, followed by a loooong, smiley "awwwwwww"
This news made my night (which seems to get better with each Bailey's on the rocks I drink)

Congrats you you and the gang. More toddlers!

Based on my experience, the iPhone will suck up more of your time than the baby. And then, once the baby is old enough, he/she will just suck the iPhone. So it will all work out.

(and I am so, so, super happy for you!)

(oh, and clearly you've got a severe case of baby brain: 30% off. you so crazy!)

The first two are pretty "charmed" also. Just keep up the good work.
We love them all and you, too.

Congratulations, what exciting news for your family! We are toying with thoughts of a possible number 3 over here too, still undecided so I'm just enjoying my fast growing up 2! How does it all go by so fast. Sending wishes for a wonderful holiday!

Yaaaaayyyy! Three is the best-the best, I tell you! It works perfectly. Our kids are about the same ages, and I have to say, your timing is perfect-the ages work so well this way. Best wishes on the rest of your pregnancy, and wahoooo!

Soo cool! Congrats :)
I can’t wait to read the stories about the pregnancy! Maybe you will be my inspiration to start working in #1 :)

I love your style of writing.

It makes me happy. This post also made me laugh. Hardly anyone refers to Fiddler on the Roof these days.

Thank you so much for stopping by and entering my first giveaway! I was worried nobody would notice!

Can't wait to see who wins Friday night/Saturday morning.
