Approximate Transcript of a Recent Phone Call:
Mom: Well, AVB had her baby this morning. It is a beautiful, as of yet unnamed, little girl.
Me: What? Already? No! I thought she was due the middle of May!
Mom: Nope, she was due the middle of April.
Me: Well, shoot. I thought she was due in May. Guess I'd better get going on her baby gift. Ugh!
I am frustrated with myself for several reasons. First, I purchased the yarn for the little girl burp rags several months ago. AVB loves my burp rags...she is the burp rags biggest fan! I kept thinking to myself, I should go ahead and make those girly burp rags for AVB, but I kept putting it off and doing other things because I thought I had lots of time still. In fact, I had planned on taking them as one of my airplane projects on my trip to visit Sister next week...because I thought she was due in MAY! Had I remembered that she was due in April, I would have had them done and mailed before the baby was born. Now I look like a last minute Johnny Come Lately...when really I was very prepared...just very blonde!
