Well, I’m not quite a mother — yet. Today I am one week from my due date (May 21), bigger than ever and ready for this part of the journey to be over (I think). One way or another, this journey is ending pretty soon!
And I’m sure you’ve noticed I’ve been a bit of an absent-minded blogger over the past week. I didn’t mean to be. I’m just in the last days of preparing for baby and I don’t have the energy I normally do.
To be honest, there’s something about the last days of pregnancy — probably a mixture of fatigue, hormones and last-minute details — that cause you to refine the scope of your gaze. These days I care more about what’s happening inside the walls of my home than outside. I know there are things happening in the world out there, important things. I just don’t care these days.
So Sirens, this is me signing off for a while. The Sin City Siren is going on maternity leave! I’ll check in from time to time. And I’ve got some guest writers lined up (right, guest writers? no flaking! :)). So hopefully you’ll get enough of a fix between now and my return to hang in there. Even feisty feminist bloggers need breaks every now and then.
Thank you to everyone for being so supportive of The Siren, me and my new role as a mom. I have this feeling that the best is yet to come.
Until I return paint a sign for me, rant at the establishment and never be afraid to raise a little hell!
