Wednesday is the New Saturday

Monday was my Monday and also my Thursday while Tuesday was really my Friday. So, today is like my Saturday. Follow? I took today off so I've got a super double happy five-day weekend stretched out ahead of me. Of course, it all started off very early this morning. Around 3:00, to be precise. When I woke up with Beth and a slightly unhappy baby. I took over parenting duties around 4:00 so Beth could catch a few hours of sleep.

I'm sure you know this but I was surprised - I have somewhere around 4,925 channels at my fingertips and none of them were broadcasting anything but infomercials. That might, however, be better than the Today Show. It's been a while since I've been home late enough in the morning (yes, I leave for work early, with a capital E) to catch this miracle of morning television and I'd forgotten what a hard-hitting new program it is. Matt and Katie just surveyed all the big airports, introduced the new chimp born just recently in Florida and, in a few minutes, they'll be answering the Butterball turkey hotline. Gripping stuff! I'm glad they're not caving and letting pesky little things like wars and political strife keep them from reporting on the big stories everyone needs to know about.

Most likely Mia was awake so early because of the shots she got at the pediatrician yesterday. The doctor said she's perfectly wonderful and healthy. We knew this. And we knew she wasn't starving at all but now it's confirmed. I know it's not polite to talk about a girl's weight but we were shocked. Mia weighs (get ready for this) a whopping 16 pounds 13 ounces.


Oops. Sorry. I seem to have fallen asleep with my head on the keyboard. Um...more coffee. Much. More. Coffee.

Wow, she's getting big!

I'd try to say something witty or intelligent now, but I haven't had enough coffee yet either.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Enjoy your um... your Saturday? Wednesday? Anyway, hope you and your family have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Yeah, nothing good to say. My mind has been numbed by the baby chimp grabbing at the woman's breast (did you miss that intoxicating part?) and the Butterball phone line. Which I am proud to say, I have never called.

Good job letting your wife rest...that will all work out into your benefit. For real.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Dude, that was like a bad LSAT question. And if you fold up the week shaped like a cube, what day would end up on top?

And Katie? Could scratch her eyes out. An. Noy. Ing.

Have a terrrific holiday with the fam!

Have an awesome five day weekend:)

Posted by: Adi at November 23, 2005 9:56 AM

skip the ridiculous channels and go straight to DVDs. it's the only way.

hope the five day weekend brings you and Beth some sleep. I guess it's too early to feed Mia some turkey huh? The tryptophan trip might have given you and B. some respite though. Shame.

take advantage of the time off and sleep sleep sleep... babies know no holidays!
as far as nothing to watch... try adding pbs kids, pbs sprout and noggin to your surfing regime. i think it's time you started catching up on your Clifford, the big red dog. did you know John Ritter did his voice? (well, before, you know, he died.)

lol - I prefer the cheesy news myself...yeah, I know there are many more important things going on in the world, but if I have to hear about it all the time, I'd probably slice my joke.

Have a great vacation! I know how valuable those days off are!

Posted by: Queen Of Ass at November 23, 2005 10:49 AM

That's what TIVO is for - you're always guaranteed to have something to watch when you have a cranky, wide-awake baby! Sounds like Mia is growing like a champ!

SHOOT! Being that it's Saturday for you I missed telling you happy Thanksgiving on Thursday. Settle for a belated one? ha. I know, I know, I crack myself up. I'm leaving now....

Posted by: VirgoJen at November 23, 2005 11:22 AM

Happy Thanksgving!

new chimp? new baby chimps are not hard hitting enough for you?

Posted by: jodi at November 23, 2005 12:16 PM

I know you talked about it yesterday, but my guilty pleasure (or rather, one of them) is Katie, Matt, Al, and Ann. It's true.

Although I also leave for work early and haven't seen it...well, not since I saw in LIVE in NYC back in May. (Hate to admit this, but that was a dream come true).

I need to STOP TYPING NOW. (I *swear* I am cooler then I sound).

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your little family.

sigh. i remember when I used to weigh 16 lbs.

Now, my left leg does.

Posted by: melati at November 23, 2005 2:06 PM

mmmm...5 day weekend. i've forgotten what those are like....

congrats on your happy, healthy, gorgeous big baby. although you already know that she's perfect and wonderful and all that, it's nice to have it confirmed by the professionals ;)

Silly goose....morning shows like the Today show are supposed to NOT focus on things like war and stuff. I am one of those people that needs it to be AT LEAST 11 a.m. before people start throwing war and politics at me.

Oh..and Happy Thanksgiving!!! I do hope you manage to get some sleep on your days off!

Its not fair that chubby thighs are cute ONLY on women under the age of 3. :-) Way to go Mia. Way to go Mom. She must have some good "boob juice" (my hubby's words, not mine.)

Big girl! But don't feel bad, Lucy is already 12lbs 5 ozs at 6 wks!
