You may be wondering, where did we come up with the name for this site? Well, it all started back in the first trimester… when I was sick all the time. I had evening sickness. I’d be fine all day (except during toothbrushing!) and then in the evening, all bets were off. I had a red plastic bucket that I carried around with me, just in case the mood struck to gag a little. At first, Rob was so concerned: “Can I get you a drink of water? A cool cloth? Hold your hair back?” Then after it became very apparent that I wasn’t so much throwing up as just making horrible gagging noises, he became more of a cheerleader: “Come on! You can do it — fill that bucket! Let’s go!” It became a joke — all the drama and none of the “reward.”
But I bet you’re still wondering where the sunfish part of things come in. Rob says that I look like a little sunny when I gag — tongue slightly out, lips pushed out in a fishy sort of way. And so the baby became known as the Little Sunfish, or Sunny for short.
So there you have it. A method to the madness.
And, let me say, I am soooooo happy to be done with the Sunfish face. Yeah second trimester!!
