Parking for Pregos
When we first moved to Kansas the grocery store up the street from where we live had expectant mother parking right there next to the handicap parking. I had never seen this anywhere other than Babies 'R' Us. I thought that was so nice and planned to take full advantage of it when I was pregnant again. Now that I am pregnant, they are gone. I'm not really sure when it happened. I stopped noticing them and then one day they were gone. It's been awhile. So now that I'm pregnant, I'm bitter. Just a little bit. And I plan to be even more bitter when it's December and averaging 20 degrees. Usually I don't fight for an up close parking spot, especially when I am pregnant figuring it's a tiny bit more exercise crammed into my life to walk across the parking lot. But I'm not looking forward to it at 9 months pregnant, in 20 degree weather, with ice and two little kids. And when I was at the mall near my in-laws in St. Louis tonight, they had expectant mother parking and I was reminded that I've been cheated.
