Signs of being ready

Lately, I've been catching myself thinking and speaking in what I have identified as being some kind of mom vernacular. It's an odd phenomenon resulting in weird phrases and mixed up words which become more frequent as I get more pregnant. Let me give you an example.

I used to take the train to work every day and spew sarcastic and rude (and totally deserved) comments at the etiquette-less T riders. I've been driving since I have been pregnant, but took the train to work recently not having the car... and where I would usually make some kind of sarcastic comment aloud, I found myself scowling in silence and calling them things like "ratfink" or "RUDY" (as in YOU'RE RUDE) in my head. But seriously, WHAT IS A RATFINK. I don't even know where I got this word. Apparently while transferring files to Baby F, I have downloaded a new and nerdy expletive-free language for Moms.

I still maintain my trucker mouth though, or else how would you recognize me?

Next stop on this runaway mom train? See for yourself.



Mom, if you're reading - I think you should sue for some kind of royalties. This was clearly crafted after you. However, they said "Keith Ragu" instead of "Canoe Weebs" for Keanu Reeves.
