I am the Bowl

I just want to thank you all for your kind words and well wishes. We are very excited to be having this baby and I am sure the next few months and beyond will be both a learning--and like the addition of any child into your home--a life-changing experience.

I just want to add two quick addendum's to my previous post. After discussing it briefly with my husband, who didn't read it but still feels the need to give me advice about what I write, I realize that I should be the bowl in the three bean salad and not him. Now, I did come to this realization after he said something along the lines of "Why do I have to be the bowl, you should be the bowl you carry everyone?" and then I realized he was absolutely right. I am the bowl. I am the vessel. It is just more literary. This of course makes him the vinaigrette, which will now be referred to as the "dressing" since he doesn't like vinaigrette and prefers the thicker, creamier high-fat versions of dressing, which I think he should drink directly from the bottle, considering that lettuce is only a means for getting it into his body.

I also want to point out that I will be happy with this kid no matter what its sex. If it is another Little Lady, so be it, I know Little Ladies. If it is a boy, well bring it on, and in all seriousness I probably would post two or three blogs a week about his penis. They are just weird.


  1. I am having a problem with the vessel and the creamy dressing analogy.....

  2. I can vouch for the fact that having 3 little ladies is great (crazy a lot of the time) but it will be great no matter what you have! (oh and crazy a lot of the time!!)

  3. A creamy, white dressing-like substance being sprayed into The Toy's face and mouth seems like a most appropriate analogy to me.
