Mama's got a new baby

For two days I have been waiting. Waiting for the FedEx man to arrive. For two days I have remained in this house, waiting, waiting, waiting. I have come to realize that I am really not a SAHM, as I thought, but a DGTARJM (Doesn't-Go-To-A-Real-Job-Mother). I realized this after Staying-At-Home for two days.

Reality is that I am never at home. I am forever dragging the Boo somewhere. I go out for one errand and suddenly I find myself the mother-version of Ferris Bueller--realizing it is 5 minutes 'til and I still have 10 blocks to go to beat D home. Flying through the side streets, praying that the train is running late and somehow, someway I will make it home before he does. Hoping that he doesn't see the steam from the front of the car as he walks past it. Leaping from the front door to the couch, over the dog. Kicking my shoes off as I go.

So this evening when D mentioned that there was a truck in front of the house, I went running outside, hopping around like a cheerleader at the Homecoming game. Much to the chagrin of the FedEx guy, I hopped onto the truck.

K: I have been WAITING for TWO days for you!!!!
FEG: You have? There was a mixup on the address.
K: I haven't LEFT MY HOUSE IN TWO DAYS AND I HAVE BABY!!! If you hadn't shown up tonight, I probably would have met your truck tomorrow with a gun. I was going CRAZY.
FEG: What are you waiting for?
K: My computer.
FEG: Well all I have for you is this little box.
K: That's my computer.
FEG: It can't be. The box is too small.
K: Watch.

With that, I took my brand new baby girl out of her box. And she looked like this...

I would like to thank the FedEx guy for sharing in my special moment. The birth of my baby girl Cookie.

Isn't she cute?

Gorgeous!!! I'm so jealous! ;)

So...where's my cigar??? It's customary to give out cigars on these occasions, right?

Send it Fed Ex. I'll be waiting...:)

My computer is a girl too - but she loves to snuggle in bed with me.

Does that make her a lesbian?

I am so jealous! My birthday is in a couple of weeks and all I want is a new laptop. This one is literally falling apart after 5 years! Anyway, I don't think Hubby has gotten the message and so my new baby may have to wait until Christmas.
Lucky You!!!!

I named my ipod mini "Amy's Pink Princess." I think T thought I was losing my mind or else desperate for a little girl (neither of which are true, I swear).

That looks like a fantastic laptop. Congratulations on your new baby girl.

I'm laughing, because I was exactly the same way when I ordered my laptop several years ago. Only, it was delayed, didn't come on a day when I was off work, and they sent it to the wrong address, and it took forever to get it tracked down. Because it was a small town, when they finally tried to deliver it to me at home (again), the FedEx person took it to work and dropped it off for me there. It was agony waiting until I got home that afternoon to play with my new baby.

Congrats! I'm surprised the Fed Ex guy didn't draw down on you when you mentioned the word "gun".
They're really close on the food chain to postal workers.
