Last night, my husband was energetically moving his legs around in the bed, which reminded me of a song I once knew energetic legs. After mulling it over for a while, it hit me. Remember that jingle “She’s got legs…sheer energy legs” by L’eggs brand pantyhose back in the ’80’s? Yeah I hated that song. It would always get stuck in my head, and I’d be singing it all damn day long.
And then I started laughing because I remembered when I was little, the name L’eggs used to really irritate me. What’s up with the apostrophe after the L? I mean, I get their intention, trying to make it sound French and all that. But it’s just such a silly-sounding word that used to bug the crap out of me. So then I told my husband about my random train of thought and he was all like, oh yeah, that was the pantyhose that came in those eggs! And I was all like, I TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT THAT!
A couple days ago, I was eating some chocolate-covered chex mix. Nathan toddled over to me so that he could have some, too. I gave him a little bite, and then I held out my hand with some chex mix in my palm so he could feed himself more. And then he did the cutest thing… instead of feeding himself, Nathan fed me! He gingerly picked one piece at a time out of my palm and brought it to his mouth like he was going to eat it. But instead of eating it, he grinned and then put the food into my mouth. That was officially the first time my little boy fed me!
