I almost want to have a baby…

Just so that I can buy this adorable frog pillow thing and put the baby in it.

This particular baby is Bethenny Frankel’s. I first spotted the frog pillow with her baby nestled snuggly in its arms on her reality show, and I think it was the first time in my life that my heart melted at the sight of something infant-related.

It was stupidly cute.

I actually hit rewind so I could see it and swoon again. Twice.

It was Sunday morning and I was home alone, and yet I still could not keep myself from saying “Awwwww” out loud. And it probably sounded just as annoying as you’re imagining, so I guess it’s a good thing that no one was there. Then I went to find Gatsby because the sight of that whole ridiculously cute frog pillow situation made me want to cuddle with something.

First hints of maternal instincts?

I don’t know.

The fact that this pillow that I MUST HAVE whenever a baby Irwin comes into our lives is actually something that I can place said baby in to get it out of my way may indicate otherwise.

Also, for a split second it crossed my mind that I could buy the pillow now for Gatsby. A frog cuddling with a tiny dog? Shut up. I die. (Yes, I also watch The Rachel Zoe Project.)

So really my obsession with the frog pillow may not be baby-related at all. I just can’t handle the cuteness of a small creature snuggled up with an affectionate plush frog. My heart swells, my eyes tear up, I cock my head to one side, smile like a freaking idiot and explode into tiny pieces of heart-shaped cartoon confetti.

I may have just discovered my kryptonite.

Regardless, the fact remains that someday a similar frog pillow WILL be mine (oh yes), and if it means that in order to get one I have to have a baby to put in it…then so it shall be.

  1. Not to be a downer, and granted I don’t know much about the youngest of humans, but it seems like one attempt to roll over would have this child tumbling down the frogs girthy belly and legs.

  2. Well that’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make. This pillow is so worth it. Hopefully after a few tumbles, the baby would start to get less dumb and more immobile. Also, I appreciate your use of the word “girthy.” 🙂

  3. Carlie, I think you’re more sophisticated than I am. I saw a video with a baby in a hollowed-out watermelon and cannot WAIT to try to put my child in some container-like fruit or vegetable. (I’m not a fan of most traditional ‘cute baby’ things, but that pillow is pretty darn cute. -I- want to sit in it.)

  4. There’s a hippo!! Ooh thanks for the link, Laura. I kind of want to get one now. Is that weird…? 🙂

    Julie, I saw that video too, and I think I also would have a strong desire to put my child in hollowed-out fruit. Let me know know how it works out for you.
