Tabs has a number of nicknames…and they’re all completely ridiculous!
I don’t even know where half of them come from. His latest one, “Needy Sandwich,” is like a turkey sandwich, except without the deli meat…
So he’s been extra Needy Sandwich today, following me around, basically “supervising” (air quotes) me very closely, and, for the life of me, I can’t get anything done.
He likes to drape his hefty girth across my forearms while I sit at my desk, which makes it darned near impossible to type. He also likes to rub his face all over mine and basically get all the way up in my grill.
Part of me is like, “Tabs, mommy has to get stuff done,” but another part of me is like, “Aww!” I gotta give him as much attention and lurvies as possible before Baby Girl arrives.
To be honest, I’m kind of worried about him because I don’t know how he’s going to handle sharing the spotlight with BG.
I’ve read a lot about pet/baby introductions, and I just hope — I really, really hope — it goes smoothly, because Tabs has been our only “child” for such a long time, and I don’t want him to feel like he’s being replaced. I have to find a way to let him know that he’ll always be my oldest child. He’ll always have a special place in my heart.
Um…you know what else has a place in my heart? Tom Ford’s eyeshadow palettes. 🙂 A bunch of new ones just came out for spring; here’s a few of them.
I could seriously pass out…
I may skip my nap today to hang out with them, but I don’t know about that. Something happens to my body these days in the late afternoon. I’ll be all set to do something, but then it’s lights out. Zzzz…
The first one I want to play with is Honeymoon, the warm one with the bronze, wine and purplish shades. Or, Last Dance. I’m lovin’ that sparkly blue… Well see!
How do you feel about Tom Ford’s palettes? They’re expensive as all heck, but gurrrl! — kind of amaze. The powders practically blend themselves.
OK…transition time. You might laugh, but we’re all friends here, so laugh away. 🙂 Whenever somebody gives BG a book, I get a little verklempt…
She just got a few from some friends in NY, and when I opened the box, I got, like, super teary.
I dunno… I just hope she likes reading and writing as much as I do. I can’t wait to put a bookshelf in her room and fill it with all of the books she loves to read.
I got it into my head to read her the entire Harry Potter series when she’s old enough to appreciate them. I’ve actually never read those books, and neither has El Hub (I know, so late on that train), so I think it’ll be a fun family thing for us to do together.
Speaking o’ books, I just started reading these…
I’m hoping to make it through as many of them as I can over the next two weeks. They were all recommendations! My friend Jen got me the baby book, the breast feeding book was recommended in one of the newborn classes I took, and the happiness book was a rec from the therapist I’m seeing.
I’m reading all three at the same time. Plus, I’m still listening to the Red Queen on Audible.
I wish there were, like, four or five more hours in the day dedicated to reading — that is, on top of an extra four of five hours dedicated to sleeping. 🙂
What’s on your reading list this week? Anything interesting or exciting?
