Getting my pregnancy shine on

Me: I’m going to get fat. And ugly. Are you still going to love me?

Mark: Of course.

Me: I’m already getting a little thicker. Are you sure you can handle this?

Mark: Honestly? It’s true that there is something extra beautiful about you right now. It’s kinda weird. I mean… it really is like there is this… shine to you.

Me: Awww, that’s so sweet…

Mark:  Yeah. I know.

Me: Wait. There’s a shine to me? Did you just call me shiny? Don’t you mean-

Mark: No. I refuse to use that expression.  You’re shining. Like a star.

Me:  But I want to glow. Like a worm.

Mark: Shiny star. Deal.

    lol! Mark is trying extra hard to be sweet! Just be a shiny star. It’s better than a glow worm. 🙂
