Why today was chock-full of awesomeness:
1. Mike, Nathan and I met Anthony at the Metro and watched Borat. We took advantage of the Metro’s crying room, which I highly recommend for anyone who wants to bring a baby to a theater. Tangent: since there’s only one crying room at the Metro, the movie selections are sometimes questionable for kids. I called last week and Saw III was offered in the crying room. Still, hi-five for sex crimes! All was well until I found Anthony teaching Nathan how to play “quarters” using Avent bottles.
2. I found out that a former boss of mine gave me a glowing review which I expected because she’s such a sweet person, but hearing someone say something nice about me which did not involve any bribes or checks made payable to said reviewer was especially awesome.
3. I lost three pounds this week! And crystal meth gets such a bad name, paa-shaa!
4. About a month ago, Nathan was casted to be a baby model for a local high-end children’s clothing website. The website hasn’t launched, but the owner emailed me a few of the photos and it healed my broken spirit at Babies R Us. Before you think I’ve turned my son into some JonBenét or John Benet, rather, I will most likely never do it again. I was ill-prepared and exhausted. I didn’t have a boppy or bumbo seat with me, so I had to hold him up while ducking out of the shot. And since he couldn’t sit up on his own, I had to be ready to catch his gargantuan head before it hit the grass.
My son, the fashionisto:
You like? I like! It’s nice!
