Well...I think baby cravings are smacking me at full force. I am trying to reason with myself by pointing out that it is almost time, just a little longer to start Project Baby. I'm trying to reason with myself by pointing out that I always crave babies at this time of year. From January to April, I inevitably ricochet between bad periods of grief over the loss of my child and an insatiable desire to have another baby. Add to this a sprinkling of insane and inappropriate jealousy when people marked as "unworthy" of another child in my hormonal and grief crazed mind dare to deliver a child of their own during this time period. That's right folks. Sanity and reason are not personality characteristics I always choose to utilize, no matter how level-headed and calm I may seem here.
How, you may be asking, do I combat this potent combination of Winter/Baby Blues? I wander the baby section at Target until I realize I don't belong there or until my four year old starts screeching that I haven't taken her to see the toys yet. Whichever happens first. I complain loudly to Jerry that I want another baby during every.single. conversation. Even though he is not the one holding up the show. I am. He has long ago started making comments regarding his readiness for another child. Yet this does not save him from my loud, dramatic sighs and overly descriptive depictions of the adorable baby(ies) I recently viewed. When Jerry can't listen to it anymore, I then tell everyone else I know. It's a good time for everyone involved, I think.
And I start baking. It's pretty ridiculous. Right now I am baking this. I will not be posting a picture of my culinary masterpiece here because...I just don't want to. But feel free to view this talented lady's version.
