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.
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.
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.” 🙂
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.)
here you go carl! and it looks like you have some formidable cute options!
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.
hmmm… ya’ll are kind of weird. I know my sister is weird, but now I know she has weird friends as well =)
