Baby’s First Meme

2006-09-08 - 3:43 p.m.

Grommet has been tagged with a meme! Ironic, isn’t it, that she’s been tagged before I’ve ever gotten tagged with one of those things? Nancy’s Alien has done the tagging. After reading the Alien’s I’m a bit daunted ‘cause how could I possibly be that funny? Grommet, on the other hand, was not fazed because she is hiLARious:

3 Things That Scare Me
• Being left alone. Even for a couple of minutes. If my mom wanted to go to the bathroom she should’ve thought of that before she had me, right?
• Having my face covered by my sleeper being pulled over my head. Especially at night when I’m trying to sleep. By all that is holy woman, if I’ve dozed off in just a diaper after bath time, let me freeze!
• Laughter. But only randomly since most of the time I’m okay with it, yet sometimes it freaks the bejeezus out of me. Yes, I know that this does not make me popular at funny movies but too bad.

3 People Who Make Me Laugh
• Mama
• Daddy (Yes, the Alien said the same thing, but really, who are funnier than Mama and Daddy?)
• Unky Bob, especially when he plays peekaboo.

3 Things I Love
• Anything electronic – I love the phone, Mama’s cell phone, the TV remote, and the camera, especially the camera! I cannot take my eyes off it once I’ve heard it’s merry little chirp!
• Doing something new for the first time and watching Mama wig out about it.
• Being “flown”, especially in front of a mirror.

3 Things I Hate
• Being put down in the stroller after being picked up out of it. No, I do not have to go in it to go home, what’s wrong with your arms Mama?
• Cold water, being lowered into (see: wading pools).
• Not being attended to the instant I call for someone.

3 Things I Don't Understand
• The word “no”. What is this no you speak of?
• Why I can’t have the things Mama and Daddy put in their mouths – which must be delicious - but am forced to eat horrible goo instead.
• The Pythagorean Theorem. (Just kidding on that last one. Me and Pythagoras? We are tight.)

3 Things on My Changing Table
• A changing pad.
• Wipes
• A rolled-up receiving blanket to cushion my noggin from the printer which is right beside the changing table.

3 Things I'm doing Right Now
• Squawking.
• Playing with Tigger.
• Smiling cutely at Mama in hopes that I can entice her to pick me up.

3 Things I Can Do
• Snag a drinking glass traveling over my head when I’m on someone’s lap.
• Get my butt a fraction of an inch into the air when I’m on my arms and tummy.
• Wrap my parents around my teeny weeny little finger.

3 Ways to Describe My Personality
• Good natured.
• Focused and intent on what I want.
• Curious.

3 Things I Can't Do (yet)
• Like the Alien… Crawl.
• Or Walk.
• Go to sleep when I’m alone.

3 Things I Think You Should Listen To
• My mama singing (I try to sing along).
• Me saying “pick me up, pick me up!” This can sound a lot like “ma ma ma ma ma” but does not mean Mama.
• My laugh, which it totally awesome.

3 Things I Think You Should Never Listen To
• The siren call of the computer.
• Random strangers who tell Mama what to feed me, how to raise me, etc.
• Unky Bob, silly man.

3 Absolute Favorite Foods
• Breast milk
• Water
• Anything you are eating that I’ve never tasted

3 Things I'd Like to Learn
• How to crawl and walk.
• How to get my hands on electronic stuff or more drinking glasses.
• How to Rule the World! (Scratch that, I already know how to rule the world).

3 Beverages I Drink Regularly
• Breast milk
• Water
• More breast milk (Really, what else do I need? Nothin’ that’s what.)

3 Shows I Watched as a Kid (that would be NOW)
• Movies at the Stars and Strollers program.
• Grey’s Anatomy when it was on weekday mornings (until this week when it was replaced by something less worthy).
• That’s all.

4 3 Babies I will tag
Good gravy, as if I know 4 babies with blogs. I can maybe come up with 3:

That means no swiping my stuff - text, images, etc. - without asking.

P.S. If you're emailing me, replace the [at] with @ in the "to" line. Oh, and if you put the word "journal" in the subject line it'll have a better chance of making it past my junk mail filters.
