Boring Motherese/Quizzy!

I’m riding high on the giddiness of knowing that Herr Meow is down for a nap that seems to be going on longer than ten minutes. Yes– does not sound like a big accomplishment UNTIL it happens to you. Just you wait, people, until it is YOU speaking Motherese. The skies will darken and a pall will be cast, and you too will sound like …. like….

…. a Mommy Blogger!!!!! *evil cackling*

I was reading the Style section of the Post today, and in the advice section someone was whining about feeling like she hadn’t really enjoyed the early babyhood of her now-10-month old. She felt guilty when she took time for herself, and she also felt guilty because she worked full time. She also felt guilty because she hadn’t started a baby book.

Whilst I read, Herr Meow ate crackers, “sang,” clucked happily, clicked his tongue, and attempted to feed me Cheerios– only to fake me out at the last moment.

I know you’re not asking for MY advice, lady, but seriously? I look upon the early days very fondly –despite commenting several times in recent times that newborns look rather freakish and like rats, my own included– but I’m very glad that I now have a little person who’s actually up for making human sounds and is inclined to move on his own. If you feel truly guilty, see if you can cut back on work, really. Then you might find yourself truly depressed over cherishing those 10 giddy minutes of nap every day.

And please– baby books, with few (artistic) exceptions, are usually the work of Prozac and the devil.

And for your waste of time and entertainment, here is a quizzy, taken from Comebacknikki. Is my description incredibly boring or what? (come on, officed masses…. you KNOW you wanna click and share your results with me! *cackle*):

  The Maid of Honor
Deliberate Gentle Love Master (DGLMf)

    Appreciated for your kindness and envied for all your experience, you are The Maid of Honor.

    Charismatic, affectionate, and terrific in relationships, you are what many guys would call a “perfect catch”–and you probably have many admirers, each wishing to capture your long-term love. You’re careful, extra careful, because the last thing you want is to hurt anyone. Especially some poor boy whose only crime was liking you.

Your exact opposite:
Half-cocked

Random Brutal Sex Dreamer
    We’ve deduced you’re fully capable of a dirty fling, but you do feel that post-coital attachment after hooking up. So, conscientious person that you are, you do your best to reserve physical affection for those you respect…so you can respect yourself.

    Your biggest negative is the byproduct of your careful nature: indecision. You’re just as slow rejecting someone as you are accepting them.


ALWAYS AVOID: The False Messiah, The 5-Night Stand, The Vapor Trail, The Bachelor

CONSIDER: The Gentleman, someone just like you.

One thought on “Boring Motherese/Quizzy!

  1. Ok, here’s me! 🙂
    The PeachRandom Gentle Love Master (RGLMf) Playful, kind, and well-loved, you are The Peach. For such a warm-hearted, generous person, you’re surprisingly experienced in both love and sex. We credit your spontaneous side; you tend to live in the moment, and you don’t get bogged down by inhibitions like most women your age. If you see something wonderful, you confidently embrace it. Your exact opposite:The NymphDeliberate Brutal Sex Dreamer You are a fun flirt and an instant sweetheart, but our guess is you’re becoming more selective about long-term love. It’s getting tougher for you to become permanently attached; and a guy who’s in a different place emotionally might misunderstand your early enthusiasm. You can wreck someone simply by enjoying him. Your ideal mate is adventurous and giving, like you. But not overly intense.
