In the 'Hood

Grandmotherhood, that is. Impending grandmotherhood is turning out to be a source of tender amusement.

My oldest son, who is going to be a father this fall, is visiting me right now. He borrowed my laptop for awhile last night, and when I got it back, all his windows were still open: MySpace, Napster, the Huggies Club and BabyNames.com.

Cute, n'est ce pas?

His girlfriend, the expectant mother, just got back from shopping in the city with her mom, and she announced excitedly to us that she'd gotten the baby a Halloween costume. The baby, who will be about 9 weeks old on Halloween, will be dressed as a banana and its mother will be dressed as a monkey.

I laughed until my sides hurt when I heard this.

Not our actual baby

I don't know about your family, but in OUR family, we would call her a "keeper".

Haha! She is definitely a keeper!

From needing booty to knitting booties? Watch out: it's been proven that babies emit pheremones that can make you totally happy and serene...

Indie said...

Yes, maybe we will call this transference too!

Appealing costumes on babies make me go Ape;>

Silliness, silliness, silliness: Babies in Halloween costumes. It is as if babies are some type of accessory like a hat or purse.

It's ok though because soon enough, they make their individuality known.
