When Bug was still baking in the toasty little oven (that during my first pregnancy looked like a cute basketball under my shirt, but is widening itself with this second one into all sorts of squishy love handles and extra rolls)... anyway, I digress... I received so many generous shower gifts for our daughter. I mean SO MANY.
One such gift was a plush softie pink kitty who has since been lovingly named Dot.
Bug decided a few months ago that Dot is her BFF. No seriously, there will be no napping without Dot. There will be no 12 hour stretches at night without Dot's presence in the crib with Bug.
I checked a few months ago and there were ample "Dots" still for sale on Amazon-- what did parents do before Amazon?? I did not purchase any extra Dots at that point in time because we decided to wait until Bean revealed his/her gender, so we could get a Dot or two for him/her. (There are blue puppy Dots, yellow duck Dots, and green frog Dots). Am I scaring you?
Today-- NO MORE DOTS ON AMAZON! What?!
I have scoured the Internet and after half an hour (thanks Google) I have stumbled upon pink Dots. With free monogramming. They are $24.99 each. Praise the Lord, small crisis averted!
Now, I need to know. How many "back up Dots" should a good mother have on hand?
(And should I cringe at paying $25 a pop to keep my sanity? "Cause I know Hubby will.)
