I Want My Kid To Be Like Tommy Pickles

First, I want to sincerely thank everyone for the outpouring of support for Derek, myself and the baby after yesterday's news of Derek not being able to be here when the baby is born. I definitely wasn't expecting so many people to offer such kind words and even offers to fly out to Washington to give us a hand when the baby arrives. It truly means so much to us to know that we have such wonderful family and friends who are willing to be here for us in one way or another!

Now, onto the stuff that will make you chuckle, and potentially question why you may or may not be friends with me :)

I want to have a kid who turns out to be just like Tommy Pickles from "Rugrats".

Seriously. I was watching the show last night because, well, let's face it: late night TV sucks, and "Rugrats" was one of the greatest 90's Nickelodeon cartoons ever....and I realized that Tommy Pickles would be a pretty awesome kid to raise. Think about it. For those of you who know the show and remember it well, Tommy Pickles was always the leader of the pack, and in cartoonland, he was one brave baby. Besides the fact that he was fiercely independent, easily self occupied and had a pretty healthy imagination. He was nice to everybody, barely ever cried and loved his Grandpa. Who wouldn't love a kid like that?

Now, I might change the outfit up from the diaper and blue t-shirt (my kid will be well dressed. Mark my words) and hopefully my kid will have a bit more hair...but all in all Tommy Pickles is one cute cartoon baby, and I hope my baby will be equally cute...or a whole lot more :)

Now if some toy company could just make a real Reptar doll, we'd be set!
