I think it'something you catch during pregnancy and childbirth that turns your world upside down. The symptoms include: the overwhelming urge to speak in a sing-song voice, constant conversations about poop and other gross things, hearing so keen you think you hear a baby crying all the time, unquenchable thirst for playtime with your baby and an insatiable yearning for toothless grins.
But the most recent symptom caught me completely off guard. I wasn't quite sure what to do about it. It struck suddenly upon waking this morning and has been nagging persistently since 6:30 am. This may be the worst of all the Momma-itis symptoms... There are six garage sales on our street and I feel an overwhelming need to check them out to see if they have any great kids stuff. Seriously. I must have it bad. Until April 13, 2012, I DETESTED garage sales. Now I am seeking them out.
I think the diagnosis is stage (almost) three (months) Momma-itis. Apparently it's incurable and only gets worse with time. I can think of worse things to suffer from :-) Happy Friday!
