I must admit that I am so proud of my wife! As we approach the holiday season, I wonder how hard it must be for pregnant women as they cannot "partake" in the so called Christmas Cheer that is abundant at this time of year!
This weekend, my wife and I attended my annual company Christmas party and I must say, I was impressed. Usually, she is so tired on Friday nights that she is usually down for the count by 9pm at the absolute latest, but she surprised my by holding strong until past 11pm that night! I cannot imagine how hard it must be for her to stay up on her feet for 8 hours teaching Grade 1 children every day, never mind the fact that she is now 8 months pregnant. I honestly don't think I could do it.
Anyone that knows Becky can attest to her love the odd beer or glass of wine. The fact that she cannot drink must make these Christmas functions all the more entertaining for her. I can imagine that there is nothing as fun as sitting stone cold sober in a room full of half drunk office creatures. That said, I am still shocked that she held on until 11pm as she saw that I was having a good time. Now I must confess that I did not realize that it was that late and I was actually planning on leaving around 9pm. But....you know how these things go.
I have a new found respect for women who trudge through their workdays and continue to have a social life late into their pregnancy. I now know that this is not easy and I will look at my wife in a completely different light going forward. ( And not just as the designated driver!)
What a trooper!
