3 points of interestPosted: December 4, 2008
On Tuesday, I went to meet my coworkers for our Christmas lunch. I brought Bobby because I like to show him off and I had no babysitter and he’s a good dude.
He was asleep when we got there and when he woke up he was totally calm. It was the type of restaurant where you go up to place your order so a coworker held him when I got in line and that’s when the crying started. He got passed around a bit and that didn’t work so I held him while in line and that sort of worked for a bit.
I tried to feed him but he was too distracted by the decor and the people so I asked the staff for some hot water so I could heat the bottle (of breastmilk) I brought for just if this happened. It took 20 MINUTES for the guy to bring it to me so Bobby was getting more and more upset and started freaking the fuck out. He is NOT accustomed to waiting to eat, and why would he be really? By the time the bottle was warm he was too worked up to focus on eating. My food arrived and I had him pack it to go while I tried to calm Bobby down. Finally he relaxed enough to eat but he was still wimpering when he was done so I just decided to go home.
The SECOND we walked out the door he was all smiles and he fell asleep by the time I walked to 100 feet to the car.
Last night Anne came over to cut my hair and I like it. It’s longer on one side and has fat bangs. Here’s a side photo because I looked like a zombie head-on
Anne is awesome because I told her to do whatever she felt like and it was exactly what I was secretly hoping. When I go in for a trim I think I’ll ask her to do it just a slight more asymmetrical. "More asymmetrical" is such bad grammar! Less symmetrical is a better way to say it but I don’t think it gets my point across as well.
On Saturday I plan on going to the Not Your Grandmother’s Craft Sale and once again, will have no babysitter so Bobby is coming with. I’m trying to figure out the logistics of this. It’s usually crowded so I don’t want to bring a stroller so the carrier would be good but then what do I do with my coat? Do I just carry him in my arms till I get inside, then put him in the carrier and carry around my coat? Or should I just straight up carry him? That could be difficult… Winter makes this so much harder. I’m totally dreading his snowsuit.
