Baby Crack

I think I’ve finally recovered from all the celebration.  Ok, maybe not so much celebration but cooking and cleaning.  I spent yesterday just blobbing on the couch as much as my daughter would let me.  Fortunately, she seemed to be just as pooped as me. She had a very long day being played with, entertained, fed, snuggled and kissed.     Too bad for her it was such a terrible day.  Babies have a hard life ya know?  She took two really long naps snuggled up on my chest, my favorite place for her to be and very convenient for blobbing.  

After all the food and craziness I finally get to think about the things I’m thankful for.  Of course I’m thankful for my family.  Without them, I would not exist on this planet. Thanks Mom and Dad for getting frisky. I’m thankful for my sisters and my husbands family.  Your support in my life has been priceless and I will always treasure our bond.  I’m thankful for my beautiful EJ, whom without I would have never found myself. I’m also thankful for the support I’ve received from my friends this year.  With a new baby and the new blog I’m up to my eyeballs and you’ve been there for me every step of the way.  There are so many other things I could list but I don’t want to exhaust you before I get to the point today.  

The special thanks I want to give today is the creators of the Baby Einstein videos aka.  “baby crack” (not to be mistaken with the odd space between a baby’s pant waist band and their bare back.  Why don’t they make baby pants designed to cover the inevitable diaper? Hello!!!)  I have several of the babies first videos loaded on my laptop and cell phone so where ever I am I can start one up if she is getting unruly.  I don’t want you to think that all I ever do is vegetate my child in front of the boob tube.  Only when she cries, is bored, or when Momma needs a few minutes, or when she’s awake.  I’M KIDDING YA’LL!   I’m not THAT mother.  But I will admit to using them.  At least the videos are educational…umm…at least I hope they are.  There isn’t any proven evidence that they aren’t secretly installing extremest views into our children’s young brain cells.  But instead of a crying pissed off baby who is being forced into a nap, I can lay her down and put on Baby Mozart and she watches that for a few minutes and then drifts off.  For those of you who don’t know what the “baby crack” is all about, they are videos of real life objects and toys that move across the screen to music like Mozart and Beethoven.  No cartoons or brainless stuff, although to the average human adult it can be quite hypnotic and can also quite convenient for blobbing.  They also have images of other babies.  EJ loves those.  She always perks her head up when the babies come on.   I don’t feel guilty letting my daughter fall asleep to this ”baby crack” and using it as a tool to help Mommy stay sane.  I truly believe that sanity in the parents make for more mentally stable offspring.  So let’s give three cheers for “baby crack”!!!  There you have it folks.  A little thanks to be given in a world that should be thanked more often for what it has given us.
