I have a co-worker who is the same age as me and yesterday she came back from her yearly exam to share with me some info we were both interested in: what’s the deal on wanting to get with the baby making but being near or over 30 years of age? The hubby and I have been talking about babies for a while now and I was definitely interested in what my co-worker was told. Except for one part when apparently her doctor explained that women looking to get pregnant really should be down to 150 pounds. To boot, the doctor added, that was on the “heavy side”. My co-worker and I had a good guffaw over that; part in honest amusement and part in indignation. Not only was I scoffing because losing about half of my body size just to be considered on the “heavy side” of pre-pregnancy weight seems a bit extreme (okay, largely insane) but because the chance of me actually DOING that were zilch. I did appreciate though that my husband found it equally amusing and when I even mentioned how insane it would be to attempt a diet of that scale he said “But I like happy April best”. Indeed my love, as do I!
But in the spirit of keeping things light-hearted towards the week’s end here’s a little crocheted turkey I just finished making. I call it a Turkey Peacock because the pattern was for a peacock. I was aiming for a look like a Phoenix but the turkey is still cute and makes me grin.
