After a startling realization our future daughter has more clothes than her dad, we went on a bit of a clothes shopping spree for yours truly. I got a new pair of pants, a few buttons shirts, new shoes, some socks, and some brand new white t-shirts. I was in a very cranky mood while trying on clothes Saturday as I struggled to fit into clothes. Note to self: before next trip to the mall make sure to shave and look halfway decent before leaving the house. You know you’re getting older (or an expectant parent) when you arrive to the local mall before it opens. I’m just saying.
Allow me to get to my point of this post. Speaking of cuteness, when do we lose our cuteness? Does it happen at puberty? I recall thinking how cute my nephews and niece were, but when did they stop being cute? How does this happen? Do our personalities make us more or less adorable? Once my nephews could talk back is this when they became less cuddly? I ask this so I can prepare myself for the future. I suppose my mom must still think I’m pretty cute, but then again she’s rather biased.
Speaking of my mom, we hosted an Easter brunch yesterday for my mom and my younger brother. It was nice to have each of them over. We showed them around the house, including all the new baby belongings. It was a pleasant start to our Easter day. I’m not religious at all, but Easter holds a special place in my heart since it was the day I proposed to my wife in 2000. As a kid it meant hunting for Easter eggs either inside the house or in the backyard, pending weather conditions. Once we found the hard-boiled eggs we chowed them all down either with egg salad sandwiches or simply devouring them once the shell was removed. Anyone have any Peeps they want to share?
