Rumor has it that Beyoncé is also due in February. I immediately feel compelled to kick up my pregnancy sass factor. I mean, she’s already sported a maternity tux, for goodness sake!
Although I do not have the means or wherewithal to go all Beyoncé -caliber maternity wear, I do feel inspired to embrace my inner diva during this pregnancy. Lucky for me, my first purchase out-the-gate was a pair of skinny jeans. The exact opposite of frumpy! Although this has been the only purchase since the challenge ended a week ago I now have a little mantra that I will take with me as I shop throughout this pregnancy: WWBD – What would Beyoncé do?
Note: If you see on a day that I am looking closer to “frump” than “diva”, please keep your observations to yourself. I promise you that I am well aware of the set-back (I do own a mirror). Also, since we’re on the topic of comments to pregnant ladies that should be avoided, please don’t tell me (and this really goes for all pregnant ladies) how much bigger I am than your sister/daughter/niece/neighbor who is also X months along in her pregnancy. What am I supposed to do with this comment? It adds nothing to the conversation (it does add fodder for later conversations I will have about you and your inappropriateness) and it makes me want to kick your keister. But I digress.
So here’s to embracing the inner diva. I will metaphorically shake my money maker until the very end and take you along for the ride.
