Hello, O. is Me readers! I am Katie, some of you might recognize me. I am the girl who doesn’t look like a model in the pictures Meg posts 🙂 I kid I kid, I really am a model.
Anywho, I am not here to talk about how awesome, beautiful and skinny I am. I am here to talk about how awesome Meg is and what a amazing mother Meg is going to be. I would love for this post to be a surprise to her, but I think I got privileges like that taken away when I wanted to request “Freak of the Industry” and “Pussy Control” at her wedding. Someone’s a prude… 🙂 Meg has been one of my besties since we were about 14, however old you are in 9th grade. She is the Jenna Maroney (but not as weird, just a blonde actress) to my Liz Lemon (snarky, brunette, non-actress). She is also the Godmother to my son, The Toddler (I try to not say his name online but do slip on Twitter).
|Caitlin (our other Bestie that Meg is visiting), Me, Meg|
Meg was a rock during my pregnancy, which wasn’t easy. The Toddler also had a NICU stay and I had a emergency c-section, needless to say, the SeeKReads were not doing well. She was there when I needed her, even there when I didn’t realize how bad I needed her. Her positive attitude got me thru a very, very rough time. I pray daily that she doesn’t have to go thru what I did. What did Meg get for all that amazingness? A kid who has done every bodily function possible for a baby/toddler to do all over her. My child is nothing but giving I tell ya.
Meg already had a one up on me in the Mommy game buy not freaking out during a poo explosion of epic proportions, all over her. She knew how to handle him quickly, and with out upsetting him. Where as I suggested praying for guidance and freaked out wondering how the heck I was going to live thru the baby stage.
My child would have no manners I am pretty sure if it wasn’t for her. She makes him say his please and thank yous before he gets anything. Something I should probably be doing but in my mind I am just all “take it kid and go play with your iPhone”. Yes, my 2 1/2 year old has a iPhone. Thanks to Auntie Meg. When hers broke (it can’t really be used as a phone anymore) she gave it to him. I can’t wait to get Baby O drums. Here are some pictures over time of Meg and The Toddler. I swear the only person he smiles in a picture for is her, or the dog.
|This is from when Meg got to baby sit The Toddler for a week, while she was in the middle of planning her wedding, mind you. Life saver that girl is I tell ya! I think The Toddler was about 4 or 5 months old.|
|Okay, this is the only time I am going to tell you to ignore my child and bestie. Check out that waterfall of beautiful blonde pony tail in the back ground. If only my hair was as luxurious.|
|I love this picture! They both look so happy. The Toddler was about 11 months old here.|
|I really think he loved her more than me. No idea how old he is here. Meg probably knows.|
|Okay, he had just sat thru a wedding and I can tell by looking at his eyes he is super tired. I was in said wedding so Meg and my Mom got the honor of being harassed by him during the ceremony. Thanks guys!|
It was great showing off my kid and best friend to y’all. I promise I don’t talk about my kid all the time. I also talk about books and True Blood! I am very exciting I tell ya. If that’s your brand of exciting, be sure to check out my blog! Thank you!
