Jacqui is enabling my baby fever

When you don’t hear from me for days it means I’m in a lousy mood and no one needs to be bothered by my Debbie downer attitude. I’ve been a ball of stress and pessimism as of late, not sure what my deal is. Well, I know what my deal is but it’s not worth getting into.

My day turned around when I came home to a wonderful surprise in my mailbox from Jacqui.

Yep that’s right– What to Expect When You’re Expecting. No people, I’m not preggy, I swear. To prove it,  Len and I shared a bottle of champagne.

I was secretly toasting to a future bun in the oven. He was secretly toasting to blacking out and forgetting the book ever existed.

Jacqui sent me the book after reading about my baby fever–so sweet. Len said, “Well we’ll have to give it to someone who needs it.” Um, not quite. This sucker will be waiting patiently on the shelf for ME, damn it. I took a picture of it on my phone and sent it to my sister with a text that said, “Guess what?!!?!” I couldn’t wait for her to flip out and  sat there giddy waiting for her response. It wasn’t long before she fell into my trap with…. “?????????? No.”  He he.

Thanks Jacqui, I had a lot of fun freaking out my loved ones tonight and can’t wait to put that book to use.

  13. Wow, I wanted kids since I was 18 (but yes I waited until I was married, older, etc.)! LOVE them SO much! Nothing like it!! I used to/and still do take them everywhere with me. I never relegated them to McDonald’s and Chuck E Cheese only. I took them to nice places (that I could afford) and it worked out to my benefit as now they prefer nice places! LOL – bad for my bank account though! 🙂

    The planning and waiting is also an exciting part!! Looking for names and stuff! Can’t wait ’til you and Lisa have little ones as they have ALL kinds of cool things out now – I hear there is a pacifier cover that if you drop the pacifier on the floor it snaps shut so it doesn’t get dirty – too cool for words. 🙂
