Guest Blogger: Summer

DSC_5873Hey everyone! What’s up? I see my mom on here all the time and I’ve been wondering what all the hype is about so I thought I’d try it out. Especially since I have a gripe to discuss with you.

All my life I’ve heard what an amazing baby I am. I’ve always been a “great sleeper”, “great eater”, you name it. Up in heaven, all I heard from my mom was “please let her have hair!” Well, she got it. And lots of it.

Lately I’ve heard my mom talk about how I’m “not a cuddler.” Well, when I turned one I decided to change that. So now I cuddle with her all the stinking time.

I used to hear her call me “lazy” because I wasn’t crawling yet. Well, I got sick of that name-calling nonsense so now I crawl all over the place. I pretty much cater to my parents’ every whim. I’m a freaking good kid, you know that?

People are always stopping to talk to me at stores and telling my mom how cute my eyes are and how smiley I am. You would think that would make my mom and dad happy.

But I guess they’re not.

Because now they’re telling me that even though I’m the best thing that’s ever happened to them, I’m going to have a little brother or sister. I mean really?? Am I not good enough?

And on top of that, I only get to be an only child for 19 months! Give me a decent amount of time to be spoiled for Pete’s sake! Sheesh! Mom and dad say they wanted kids close together and that this was all planned but I think they’re just saying that to make me feel better about having a little brother or sister. And I really hope it’s a brother because I do not plan on sharing any of the attention with another girl. I will be the cute one in the family, thankyouverymuch.

I think this baby must be possessing her, too, because she’s always looking for something in the toilet. Weird, right?

So, from now until August 19th, you better believe I will be milking this only child business to the very end. Mom tried to get pictures of me in this super lame “I’m the Big Sister” t-shirt but as you can see I wasn’t going to cooperate with her one bit. 

This is exactly how I feel about this.DSC_5927

And you better believe this is where I’ll be putting this new kid as soon as I get my paws on it. See my face? I’m serious.DSC_5937

Well, I must say this blogging thing is very therapeutic. I feel better already!

Until next time, peeps!

Hey...I have to ask...since your first was born in the winter and you named her Summer, will this child (born in summer) be named Autumn, Spring, or Winter? ;D
