but in the end? you get a baby.

April 24, 2013

I have a few friends who are pregnant. And they like me to talk about being pregnant, and having a baby, but since it is their first baby (so many first timers are pregnant right now!) they specifically asked me to be gentle, to do the one that ends like this: “But in the end? […]
