bad mommy

A little collage here of the morning's activities. First off, look at that fog! I love it - as long as I don't have to drive in it. Next up - cookies for St. Patrick's Day. Well - St. Patrick's Day cookies that will be given to my father-in-law, that is. It's his birthday today, and when I saw this funny monkey at Target yesterday, I had to get it. It was a morning of fog and baking. Not a bad start to a Friday. Next up - boring stuff like laundry and dishes and toy round up.
I don't usually spend too much time writing about TV because I'm always a few days behind - thank god for Tivo. So, yesterday I watched an episode of Martha from a few days ago and she had a crafter on from Seattle, Cassie, who makes roses from coffee filters. Martha explained that Cassie has a 2 month old baby she brought with her and then there was all this chatter about "oh you can't leave a 2 month old" and "I also couldn't not come so I brought the baby". So now I feel like a terrible terrible mother because I did leave my baby - but only because I couldn't very well take a 2-1/2 week old on a plane into a snowstorm. But now my segment will air after this one and I'll be the bad mommy who was on Martha. Truth is, though, the baby didn't know I was gone. He had his daddy to hold him and love him. I, on the other hand, was a complete mess leaving him. Maybe that's why the whole trip is such a blur to me now. Oh well - what's done is done. But you know I'll be cringing when we come to the part in my segment where I talk about my newborn. *shrinks away*

I can't wait to see your segment!
I was just on Martha (March 27th) and I left my 7 month old at home, and I live in NJ, a mere 1 hour away from Manhattan, so don't feel bad. It is just alot easier for you, and in the long run, a lot more comfortable for your baby.
