We had our first parenting fail.
I wouldn't go that far.
It was a fail-in-the-making.
However, we saved ourselves.
But, its big, people.
We almost caused potential confusion to our unborn daughter.
This is in regards to this post.
We thought we were so good in thinking ahead for our daughter by purchasing her potential little new friend. We wanted her to become attached. We wanted our baby to love her. We even bought a backup. For heavens sake.
But, we thought it was a horse.
And to be perfectly honest, until I received a comment from this lovely friend of mine yesterday stating that she would have guessed it was a GIRAFFE...I hadn't thought twice about the fact that
In fact, I thought about it throughout the day constantly (before I could get home and check that little bugger out).
I sent Declan an email at work and laughed about the fact that indeed, it was very possible that stuffed animal we referred to as "horsey" may not actually be that.
1. If it had nubs on it's head...duh... it's definitely a giraffe.
[but we both sworeeee it did NOT have nubs b/c we would have surely remembered that, right?]
2. Since we both remembered it did not have nubs, we thought it could have been one of those hybrid animals, you know...the kind where you get to choose whichever is your favorite in the moment. Uh huh...you know what I mean.
But then I approached those cute little pink twin ladies who were sitting on the soon-to-be changing table...
and I realized......she clearly has nubs.
Therefore, she's OBVIOUSLY a giraffe.
Therefore, we obviously were.not.thinking.
Therefore, I am glad I have pregnancy brain to blame.
(Declan, what you got to blame, babe?)
So, now...I'd like to re-introduce to you....
"Gia" the Giraffe.
[Declan's so clever, eh?]
We're sorry for the identity crises we gave you...
and the potential confusion we almost caused our daughter.
ps: Yes, if you're scratching your head, I did indeed just write an entire post about a stuffed animal. I know, I know...just leave now...if this is any sign of what is to come, we're doomed. The next thing you know I'll be blogging about the consistency of my babys poop.
HAPPY TUESDAY :)
