Barefoot and Pregnant

I have recently discovered why being barefoot and pregnant go together. It's not about male oppression--I think it's about increased circulation. Whatever it is, my feet are hot. It's early April and I have already abandoned boots for sandals, and even played baseball barefoot in the mud last weekend. This is a strange development, as I was formerly inclined to cold feet, taking after my mother who, according to my father's theory, used to soak hers in ice water before crawling into bed. Now I'd rather hang mine over the edge of the bed to catch the night breezes. And as for wearing shoes at home--why bother?

Time to go back to the kitchen. ;-)
