the baby made me do it
Pip said to me today, "Mummy, remember how you made me eat nothing but dry toast and a couple of hard boiled eggs on Friday? Well today, yer gettin' me a Whopper meal deal." So I did. And it was good. Really, really good. It's been such a strange day; I woke up at 11.15 this morning after ten hours of sleep, ate breakfast close to noon, and had my Whopper meal at 4. I suppose I won't want any supper until late tonight at this rate.
We have gone through a series of specific phases when it comes to buying baby things. The first phase was the initial buying bonanza after our detailed scan, and hooowheee was that fun! Then we went through a phase of "better not buy that in case someone else gets it for us" and we didn't buy anything else. Now we're going through the phase of "ohmygawd the baby's coming soon and there's stuff we need when we go to the hospital and as soon as we come home", and so we visited Babies R Us today. We bought some newborn-sized sleepsuits (we have tons of 3-6 month clothes, thankfully), a blanket to wrap Pip up in on the way home, a hat to keep his little noggin warm after he's born, a moses basket mattress and fitted sheets, and a completely unnecessary set of bedding that was only purchased because it was on sale and it was the pattern that I wanted. We still need quite a few things, but they can wait.
Man, I could go for another Whopper right now.
