Brooding for Babies

27/05/2009

No, not me! I am not the broody one!

My friend is!

Honestly!

(And if my friend S is reading this, she will surely shoot an email off to me to tease!)

But the truth be told, my friend is the broody one. She went to attend a baby shower and came back all ga-ga. I had to add, it was not just ANY baby shower. It was an angel baby shower. Difference? This was a real pro job.

What’s more, if you have been to any baby shower before, you would know that the person for whom this was being thrown would inevitably end up tired and frazzled because there was so much to do even after.

Well, with this concept where you let others do the organizing AND the clearing up after, those days will be a faint memory… why didn’t they have this during “my time”?! But no, I won’t be brooding for babies at my age just to experience this luxury!

Souped Up for Small ‘Uns

I don’t normally do two posts in one day.

But something happened and I just HAD to put it down!

I saw an old friend. She had twins but now was having yet another! What a handful.

What caught my eye however, was her nippy Bob stroller. There she was, in the middle of a shopping aisle with three children under 5 but somehow she managed. What gave her added advantage was that she was able to put the twins in the shopping trolley and let them play around with the not-so-easy-to-damage groceries while she manouvered her baby stroller along as she went through her list of things to buy.

An amazing woman with an amazing family using an amazing stroller!

Top of the Hill

My dog has discovered the pile of bricks stacked near his new sleeping place. When I come home from work, he will perch there, looking every inch proud of his elevated status. Reminds me of the lyrics song which goes, “…I’m at the top of heap, king of the hill…” sung by old blue eyes.

Ah yes, New York. That is some place. Someone told me that if you go there, there are some places which you must not miss. Miss Liberty of course is one.

The other would be the just-as-famous New York Yankees. Apparently it is not easy to get New York Yankees tickets. BUT if you are willing to pay… anything can happen!

For me, I would be happy just to get a free trip there!

I think I will move my dog. Otherwise those same few lines of the song will reverberate each time I see him….
