Well since I am a fashion guru I thought I'd let you in on a little secret but shhh! We don't want it to catch on too quickly or you end up just looking like you're trying to hard to fit in.
This summer's hottest fashion (literally) is das boot.
It comes in black so it goes with everything. Wear it with socks or without (though you'll regret the smell later if you choose without). You can dress it up with a flower or maybe some hot pink duct tape. I like to compliment mine with a ginormous baby bump and waddle around. Turns out I slightly tore my calf muscle in my daring rescue efforts. So I get to wear this beauty for up to two weeks. The doctor said it is actually better if I could manage with a splint that puts my foot in a downward angle but that would mean crutches and with a 2 and 4 year old to chase that's kind of out of the question. Things that are proving more difficult that I didn't have to think about before: grass (so uneven and grabby), inclines of any type, bending down to change a diaper, driving (luckily my inlaws have an automatic...I don't dare try with Nena), general foot space (this thing is HUGE!) and walking in pretty much any direction. I am so not used to it and feel rather ridiculous. So that's the update. No contractions either so it looks like the next few weeks are bound to be interesting.
