can't hardly wait.

I know-- two posts in one day? Have I lost my mind? Am I going for a world record?

No and no. It's just that some things are too good to wait.

Last time we spoke (hello, like 5 hours ago) I was in the midst of some major drama and depression relating to infertility, as per usual. However, I was determined to not let it ruin my night, so as I said, when I signed off Blogger, I went straight to my stack of photo albums, searching for a gem.

And I found one.

And when you find something this good, you just can't wait til Wednesday. You can't even wait til Tuesday. You can't even wait for your husband to finish using the "family" laptop so that you can scan the picture and put it on your blog. You have to go out to the car, wearing only your nightgown, and fetch your work laptop so that you can do it RIGHT NOW.

I hope this is big enough that you can catch all the details. Like the writing on my "bottle." If you can't read that, then click on the photo to make it bigger. I promise it will be worth it.

Like any good parents, we can see Mom looking on as Dad snaps the photo. I guess I got my sense of humor/super-fabulous parenting skillz from them. If I ever find myself in a situation quite this awesome (being the parent, that is. Obviously I've already been in this situation as the baby.), I hope my camera is working. Although I'd like to think I have the foresight to not keep my liquor in a bottom (un-child-proofed) cabinet...

And in other news, I think I may now understand why I've never cared much for bourbon. Obviously I hit the bottle a little too much in my youth...


  1. I absolutely ADORE this photo!! Oh, Stone childhoods...

  2. Just for the record, I beat Allison in commenting on this one :)

  3. 80s parents! I have so many pictures of myself as a baby gumming an open but empty beer bottle. Your parents were hardcore though! Bourbon!

  4. Just for the record in response to stupid Amanda, I am ASLEEP after 9:00pm on weekdays, so that is my valid excuse :) Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go give my baby some Maker's Mark.

  5. too funny! I also love the giant fruit slice magnets on the fridge in the background, I had forgotten about those!!

  6. Hahaha! That's awesome. Way to find a bright spot to the day. Hope your week gets better.

    P.S. Ian and I watched the last episode (it is now canceled) of "The Event" last night and wouldn't you know it, in the last 20 min, they had to make the dying girl also pregnant. So, yes, I agree that everyone in creation either real or fictional is pregnant.


I love comments almost as much as I love Mexican food. Seriously.
