okaaaaaaay, im DONE!
i must admit i whipped through this one, mostly because i had my idea in my head already and i wanted to get it down on the page. I used markers this time. Im going to type my journal bit again because i type faster than i write so its just easier

What's it like being pregnant?
Its like being on a long hike. At the beginning the hike is easy with beautiful meadows and cute flowers. Then the hills start rolling and the paths start veering off and forking in many directions. life's other responsibilities and society starts to try and pull me away from my path, and i have to constantly turn back around and switch directions to stay on my true path...in previous pregnancies i have gotten lost and gone down the wrong path all together, but this time is different. I can see the mountain ahead is dark and mysterious, but not exactly scary or dangerous. The grass turns to thorny-thickets and eventually its so steep and rocky that hardly anything will grow there, only the very toughest things like moss or lichens or something. Everything gets harder and i doubt myself a lot, but i just keep hiking!




LOL Ahhh, i love it. Its making me laugh because its funny and hard to take seriously in a way, but im really finding these art activities to be insightful into how i feel about these topics!

That's so beautiful!!! I LOVE it!!!! Awesome job!

I whip through mine too. It's weird because I feel it should take me longer, lol.






Do you want me to go ahead and post the next topic or do you want me to wait?

I just read your other reply in the 1st birth art thread so I will go ahead and post the third one, probably tonight.

Ok you two are creative.

I would draw a big fat whale that is beached and trying to reach the ocean. Giving birth would be reaching the ocean after being dragged out by some nice human volunteers on the beach after months of backache and extreme bloating. Only the water would be shallow so the whale would have to be pulled by a tugboat getting no sleep until finally after 3 months was sailing in the deep again w all the other whales! And a year later would say, " oh being beached wasn't so bad after all but look at all this extra blubber around my middle!" but the cute little whale would provide endless amounts of entertainment and love so all would be ok.
