a little wooden ring


A couple of you asked to see - and unfortunately the picture kind of, well sucks. But here you go. Note the trekking through the jungle dirty fingernails.

And no, that was NOT me sipping a bit of rum punch while pregnant...what kind of woman do you think I am?

Probably exactly the kind of woman I am.

A sip, people. Just a sip.

haha! I thought it was beer, until I saw the orange tinge of the foam and then I thought it was carrot juice, until I saw the ice-cubes and then I thought who drinks liquor and orange crush.. it's gotta be something else... rum-punch, you say? I gotta try that.

;)

Sweet.

I love the ring, Jen Talia! I guessed you would have picked a wooden one.

A friend of mine, fluently French-English bilingual, said she only ever read the French pregnancy books -- because they let you have a drink a day!

Her three kids seem to be juuuust fine.

Wow....absolutely gorgeous. And for the record, I drank NOTHING w/ Connor & more than plenty with Gracie.....so, if that means anything!?!?

And what I meant is that Connor is the one with a 'diagnosis' or two and completely high-strung and Gracie is (for the most part) chill to the max.

i love your ring. i took more than a sip (not a lot though). one evening we were out at an event and i was having a near beer and you'd think i was walking in the room with a knife covered in blood for the looks i was getting. (=

I drank for a week and used Cocaine when I thought I'd miscarried Oee.. a few weeks later when I found out I'd had a 'threatened abortion' (near-miss miscarriage), I was scared out of my mind and researching all the FAS and FAE did not help, but I had her, anyway and thank God, she's fine. It's not always this way.. a lot of it has to do with what part of the pregnancy you drink during. I wouldn't recommend it at all, just in case, but one isn't so bad.

I 'know a girl' who drank a beer once in a while during breastfeeding, when she really needed the extra sleep. One. Once in a while.

Very nice ring!

I was 6 months pregnant when my husband received his MBA, so I brought a bottle of sparkling apple juice with me to drink out of the wine glasses so I, too, could feel festive. You.should.have.seen.the. looks.I.got.

you da mom! said...

i wouldn't judge you even if it was more than a sip!

Love it!

And if those are your trekking-through-the-dirt fingernails then why do they look better than mine do right now?

KC said...

Ah, I sipped here and there, including at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners with my 2 doctor in-laws and smiled brightly afterwards. Cheers!

Lovely ring and lovely moment.

Love the ring, its so organic (although, I suppose most wedding rings are, them being round and all, dah). I sipped wine throughout! But, that probably doesn't shock you, huh? ;)

ecm said...

Lovely! Best kind of ring.

I love that ring and somehow it is so perfect and YOU. How cool that your man knows you so well.

As for rum punch, I am fairly certain it cannot be resisted by anyone, much less someone newly partnered, preggers or not. I wouldn't judge you if you ended up drinking a whole pitcher, dontcha know?

Awwwww, look! That's really quite gorgeous. What a sweet man you have

Anjali said...
