all dressed up and nowhere to go

so the bean and i were all set for a nice, busy day. i even dressed her in this adorable outfit that was a gift from my friend amber! on lilcee's recommendation, we were going to meet a client at julienne in san marino for breakfast at 9:30. but she ended up having to cancel at the last minute - pink eye. dun dun dun! no bueno. the last thing i need is for the bean to get eye goo disease. so it's actually a blessing in disguise, but i was looking forward to the meeting. this client is a sweetheart (the one i did the boxed invitations for). oh, well.

the rest of the day will be busy enough - we've got gymboree at 11:45 and then we're scooping the kid up from school a little early for her orthodontics appointment. seems that the doc is going to want to have a little chat - i don't think she's been doing the rubber band thing at all, and she's way off schedule. hell, those braces were supposed to come off next month! crap. i guess i've gotta crack the rubber band whip.

the mega millions jackpot is up to some ridiculous amount - $270 million. we've already got our ticket(s) in the hope that we're that 1 in 175,000,000 that wins it. heh. i know it won't happen, but it's sure fun to imagine what we'd do with all that cheddah.

i was talking to my buddy a last night, just trading baby stories back and forth. i told her about how i gave the bean a shower - i sat her in the bumbo (yes, i remember how disastrous it was the last time i did this), put it on the floor of our shower, and used the handheld showerhead. haha! it wasn't terrible, but the shower head was a hair too short, and by the end of it, my back was KILLING me. the bean wasn't too thrilled because she couldn't play with her toys, so i guess i won't be doing that again. damn.

she told me about how she'd gone back to work, and luckily, she has on-site daycare. that's quite a bonus! anyway, people were welcoming her and asking if they could go see her baby - and this little munchkin is quite a big boy. we're
talking about a 24-pound 6 month-old baby here! anyway, later on she overheard folks talking: "did you see that giant 6 month old kid in the daycare??"

my poor friend. her kid's being treated like sideshow bob.

and then i was damn near writhing on the floor with laughter when she was telling me that he's wearing size 5 diapers (for comparison, the bean's wearing 2-3s). um, the biggest they make is a size 6. i asked her what she was going to do when he grew out of those, and i thought i was going to die at her answer:

"i'm gonna have to start buying DEPENDS."

oh, man. and those percentile charts at the doctor for height and weight? i asked her where he was on those, and he's OFF THE CHARTS. good lord. he is one big baby! it's a good thing he's so cute ;)

lastly, i'm in love. with a diaper bag. seriously, this is the most gorgeous diaper bag i've ever seen - but i don't think i can swing it. it retails for $325! shit. and even on ebay, it's about $295. [pout] i better start selling more invitations. or something. phuck.

happy weekend to all!


  1. That's a super cute diaper bag. Is it wrong that now I want to see the 24-pound baby? Cute dress the bean is in :)

  2. awww, sad that you couldn't go to Julienne's. Another time.

    Too cute. I still love the kid's hair. Makes me miss having long hair.

    Ditto on seeing the big baby.

  3. I had braces for about 4 years and my teeth are all jacked up now because I didn't wear the retainers. I hope that doesn't happen to the kid.

  4. The bag is Petunia PickleBottom, isn't it? I wish I would've known. Regent's Secret just had a gigantic PPB sale. It's over now, though. Sorry. :(

  5. Petunia Picklebottom Cake line.

    Are you scared? ARE YOU SCARED?

    I am surrounded by babies, yo.

  6. Love the bag....Looooovvvveeee it.

    I think I might have to change the boys nickname to side show bob! He's not fat, just big boned...is his girlfriend going to hold the depends over his head when they start dating? :) love that handsome man!

  7. Seriously - giant baby stories make me want to start smoking crack during my pregnancy.

  8. Whoa. Weemo just creeped me out a little.

  9. omg, i would totally use that diaper bag as a regular handbag!

  10. the diaper bag is adorable. loves it!

    the depends comment has me in tears. tears!

  11. That is a giant baby, dude. Maybe she's raising a ball player who'll make lots of cash and buy her a big house. :)


i heart comments. i wan-na hear what you have to say.
um, i think.

squeezing in all the sightseeing

this was our NYC home for a whole week: it was one of only a few hotels that i could find that offered two beds in a room rather than, say, ...
