First, I almost forgot to add the starsan to the water before sanitizing 48 bottles. Then after filling 8 or 9 bottles, I realized I forgot to add the priming sugar. Then I tried capping a bottle that didn't actually have a cap on it.

Seriously, anything you've ever heard about pregnant women getting really really stupid is 100% true.

Yeah, but did it make you cry or perhaps run after someone with a kitchen knife? If not, it seems like you may still be above par for the course (been around my wife through 3 pregnancies....)! I've had bottling days like this and I just choked it up to "having one of those days", but now I find out that it was because I'm stupid (since I don't have the pregnancy thing to fall back on).

Hard to reply to this for me, awkward. Tried a few times and erased what I wrote.


Hey Mom! You're making a baby. A living being in your belly. You're entitled to be weird at this point in life. I'm a guy, don't have to put up with making babies other than, you know, donarship. Great to hear you are brewing.

Cheers!

Since this is my fourth pregnancy, the emotional upheaval has more or less mellowed compared to my first. I still have bad days, but not like it used to be. The brain thing is for real, though. It's like how men joke about not being able to think straight when the little brain has all the blood, but a million times worse.

At least you have something to blame it on! It can happen to anyone not really paying that much attention because they have other things going on... reproducing life is a great excuse.

Okay.. feel as though I'm getting myself in between a rock and hard place. Just got to ask BobbiLyn what did your post mean. Are you two sisters?

Not sisters, but have had 2 children myself, being pregnant is like being distracted by a normal, everyday thing, but 10 FOLD!

In having conversations with my 18 year old daughter, I just have to say.. I'm glad I'm not a woman. Periods, pregnancy...ich. To much hassle. All I need to worry about is prostate cancer. Winning!

When it comes to the "woman talk", maybe let her mother, or motherly figure in her life, provide the answers. Stick to subjects about beer and such, you know, manly stuff. My daughter will be 18 in May, and my son 21 in Feb... oh my!

I like that advice but doesn't work. Wife is gone. I've had a few talks with my daughter. At 18 she knows about sex. Got to remind myself, I did to at that age.

This might sound naive but pretty sure she hasn't had sex yet.
