So, I want a baby.
But I don’t want to have a baby, as in like, carry it for the longest nine months in all of eternity and then birth it.
And I don’t want to have a baby as in having it live with me and cry at night and spit up on my nice decorative couch pillows.
Plus, I have a lot of breakables and smell good candles and sharp knives in my kitchen and it took me a long time to get them all exactly where I want them and if I have to redo everything in order to accommodate a small baby child, I am liable to go completely insane.
And also did I mention that I am one of those people who just totally has to have my sleep.
“I’m worthless if I don’t get at least eight hours of Z’s”
Yeah, I’m one of the idiots that actually says that.
So as you can see, I’m in a bit of a dilemma here, because I want a baby, want a baby, want a baby. But not to have.
And I blame Aly&Ash’s blog.
She posted the most adorable picture of a tiny baby inside of a cute little knitted pea pod thing. And when I saw it, I almost died.
And I started wondering, why doesn’t everyone put their babies in a knitted pod? It’s cute, it makes people smile, and I bet it’s pretty dang cozy for babies because babies like being all wrapped up.
It’s a womb thing.
And then I started thinking about how when my son was a baby, my husband and I were too broke to get fancy pictures done so I ended up saving my pennies up and taking him to Sears. The pictures came out okay and all, but they sure didn’t put my baby in a cozy knitted pod, or an old fashioned bucket or anything cool like that.
So last night I told my husband that I needed to hurry up and start taking some cute pictures of my son, ASAP, and did he think that if I made my son scrunch up really small, he could fit inside of a big flower pot. Maybe wearing some over sized gardening gloves. And my husband gently broke the news to me that cramming an almost six year old boy in a flowerpot probably constitutes as child abuse.
So basically, unless I am prepared to do prison time, I have totally missed the boat on the super cute and creative baby picture thing.
Another obsession of mine lately is this cookbook:
