Babies Babies Everywhere

Since I can't buy a quart of milk in my family-friendly neighborhood without tripping over dozens of happy mothers and their children, and every junky celebrity magazine includes pictures of famous pregnant women and celebrity spawn, it was only a matter of time before the inanimate objects in my apartment started to betray me, too:

True to my roots, the Italian coffeemakers are my favorite.

babies, babies, everywhere!!! You crack me up.

If it will make you feel any better the other day at Wallyworld, there were like 6 screaming toddlers. The check out girl looks at me and says, "That drives me crazy!" I agreed and said that I was thankful mine were grown up enough to be in school!!

The coffeemaker definitely scores highest on the cute factor. So tiny!

I, too, covet your Wusthof knives. I have been lamely attempting to buy a Wusthof set on Ebay and I get outbid every time.

Living where you do, there is no escape from the baby train. They're everywhere!

Does that little coffee maker work? It's so cute! I wonder if it wakes it's mommy coffee maker up every ten minutes with it's incessant bubbling and brewing noises...

Awww! Arabella! I hate it that you're surrounded by the thing you want and that it insists upon eluding you. Here's a hug for Friday. Now go have a glasss of wine. A big one AND a small one. You deserve it.

You must be in hog heaven now that the Olympica are on... Why aren't you there? They still have tickets, go, today and relax.

I would have never thought of this, very clever and poignant Arabella.

I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Oh and the happy mothers, we are not happy, we put on a good show, so that others will join us and suffer as well.

In all seriousness, I felt this way after I had miscarried. It was like a smack in the face. Hang in there...

That's all that needs to be said.
