Who wore it best?

May 12, 2011

Very brief conversation with my friend Melanie, after I met her newborn son, Ryan, for the first time and presented him with a onesie pledging allegiance to burritos — his mom’s main source of nutrition during her pregnancy.

Melanie: Umm, this has cat hair all over it.

Me: I have no idea what you’re talking about.

If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say the onesie just fell on top of Isabel. A few times, probably. On different days. Until it reached the point that she learned to recognize its guacamole-green hue and run in the opposite direction. But there's no way of knowing for sure.

    I don’t know which is cuter, the baby, the onesie or the cat. No wait, it’s you!

    I gave my baby niece a t-shirt that says “Parental Guidance Recommended”. I also love burritos.

    um, doesn’t Melanie know that cat hair = love in the gift-giving equation?

    “babies” DOES rhyme with “rabies”. damn shame i stopped writing songs when i gave up weed….

    you’re doing that baby a favor, exposing him at such a young age to cat hair and dander and such so that he will not grow up to be all pissy allergic. good on you!

    Love it…and I agree with Marian…expose him now so he’ll have less allergies!

    In my humble opinion it seems to fit Isabel better, lol. Those babies are adorable 🙂

    I love burritos, too. Why hasn’t anyone given ME a onesie?!

    The cat hair is like the Gift With Purchase for the onesie.

    I would totally have another baby to get a gift like that.

    The baby has no teeth, therefore has never actually had a burrito. The cat has already been shown to enjoy human food (see: popsicle photo) and therefore is more likely to actual love burritos. Cute, furry, human-food-eating cat > lying babies.

    the real question is: why didn’t you make a kitty burrito by wrapping isabel in the onesie and sprinkling a little kibble on top?

    i suppose the cat hair thing would secondary if the onsie were to read “i love iams”

      would *be secondary and *onesie. jesus christ almighty.

    If Ryan comes to visit wearing the onesie, will Isabel run away from him?

  15. May 13, 2011 12:10 PM

    Maybe she thinks it’s a blanket? At least you don’t have photo proof of Isabel IN it? Tails get tricky.

    Oh please. All the best baby boutiques charge a fortune for the cat hair embellishment.

    You were just being GENEROUS.

    She’s lucky you still love her despite her ingratitude.



    I’m sure at least one of those is a word.

    Cat hair is one of those ubiquitous facts of life. It is good that the baby is getting used to the idea of it already. Long ago I gave up on my wardrobe being anything other than a vector for feline fur.

    I have often wondered just how my calico cat could selectively shed white hair on dark clothes and black hair on white ones.

    If you made me an Alone…With Cats onesie, I’d totally wear it. After getting it covered with fur by putting it on Chad.

    See what you’ve done? I bet Isabel doesn’t like burritos now- or babies, maybe. . . jos x

  20. May 16, 2011 10:32 PM

    I heart this post for so many reasons.

  21. May 18, 2011 9:57 AM

    hah! you just made me crack up so bad.

    True story: When I was in labor and the bitch-ass doctors told me “no more food, only these delicious and satisfying ice chips,” I BEGGED my husband to sneak a bean burrito into the hospital for me to eat. I told him to heat it up, wrap it in a napkin, and put it in the pocket of his shirt. He was too chicken to comply. And that’s why we got divorced. Just kidding. (maybe). Seriously, we didn’t get divorced, but I DO hate him for it.

    hahahah this is awesome. my dad recently had a baby and he’s constantly sending me picture texts of my little bro doing random activities (swinging, wearing a hat…) and even though it’s cute, it got annoying super quick. since i live alone with my insane cat, roux (who i probably blog about too often), i decided that the equivalent would be to send him pictures of my cat doing the same things…if i get a picture message of the baby eating toast, he gets a picture message of roux eating meow mix, etc. so i support this post hahah

    well maybe he woudl have been cold – you were doing him a favour giving him a furry onsie – geez – great blog you made me laugh out loud on several of your posts 🙂 I can’t wait to see what you write next

    I might be in love with you.
