The other night I had my first mini “Oh Good Golly” thought. I was watching Lisa's year in pictures video. (Which is a fantastic video of Briana!) As I was watching I kept noticing that Bri had several cute little shoes. Suddenly a little, tiny butterfly started in my stomach, soon one little butterfly led to several huge, honkin’ bats as I started to worry about baby shoes! Baby shoes people!!
In my head I started hearing:
- You have to buy her shoes
- You don’t know how to buy baby shoes
- You have no clue how to buy little girl shoes!!
- They come in strange sizes! A one is bigger than a three ~ what the Hell?
- What if I buy them too small?
I can laugh about it now, but I kid you not I was frazzled. It was a very strange little conversation that went on in my head. A mini- “Oh Good Golly what are you doing?” – passed through.
Don’t worry! I don’t need a straight jacket, yet! I didn’t talk back to myself! I was able to rationalize through it all; after I walked away from the computer, took some deep breaths, and a swig from the Makers bottle. (Just kidding about the Makers – we’re out!)
Thankfully after an email from my friend Lynette she was able to calm my nerves about the shoes, oh and the pediatrician! Thanks Lynette! I have a feeling that as we get closer to Polar Cub there may be a few more of these mini “Oh Good Golly” moments. I better find some good recipes for crow, stock up on some more Makers, and keep my phone charged – All my 'Been There, Done That" friends, be ready for some crazy texts! :o)
