Tall White Mellie Getting Advice...This Can't Be Good

Mellie came by today for dinner.  I've always believed that she is one of the most genuinely funny people I have ever come across in my life.  She's always leaving me laughing and today was no exception.

Anywho, she's preggos and she's the type of person that always has to be prepared (or at least try to be prepared).  In this case, it was to be prepared for when she's a parent.  And who better to "learn" about being a new parent than from us?  (insert laughter here; as every parent knows, there is no way in hell you can ever "learn" or be ready to be a parent.  It happens, you learn as you go, you make a ton of mistakes and you count yourself lucky if you get something right).

But really, she just wanted our perspective on what worked for us and what didn't work for us in terms of baby equipment.  Plus she came over for dinner, and as a bonus, she got what it is really like dealing with a super-cranky, sick baby (as Eamon has been the past few days and today).  Luckily she wasn't too discouraged (at least I don't think she was).

Crazy to think how long ago it was when we were feeling the anxiety of a newborn coming into our life like how she is feeling it right now

Friday tomorrow and hoping there is no overtime.  But if there is, happens and I guess I'm grateful for the opportunity to make more money

Looks like we'll be shortening our LV/LA trip to just LV.  Better than nothing
