The Smug Mummy Jet-Sets to . . . Nowhere

When I'm not otherwise busy with my favorite hobby - worrying - I enjoy devoting myself to that other charitable endeavor, self-pity.

So it is today, when I was scheduled to be packing Master P & myself up for a Smug Mummy wedding weekend full of sand between our toes and sunnier climes . . .


. . . instead, we're staying home on the advice of our pediatrician & attempting to get the wee CEO healthy:


Have you ever seen a sorrier thing in your life - and I'm not just talking about the Mom Martyr act I'm putting on here?

Of course, it is my job to take care of Master P, and I'm only too happy to do it - and avoid subjecting him or our fellow passengers to our (coughy icky) travels, but . . . but . . . BEACH. Sunshine. My dear Smug Mummy friend all gussied up in her bridal finery. Also, BEACH.

Wah.

In lieu of my usual "out of office" direction request that you send any fanmail by way of the swim up bar, I'm asking that you send us continued restorative thoughts & restorative margaritas here to Pretty HQ. That is, if they can fit through the door around my self-pity. xoxo

Poor thing!! I've got a half a pitcher of {ultraclassy} beergaritas in my fridge. I will mentally pour you one :)

Did the pedi diagnose him with anything or is it just a viral illness? His little red forehead and cheeks are just begging for a kiss! Poor babe.

Awww! Poor baby! And his poor mommy! Cute pug BTW, they're the best ;)

Aww, I hope Master P feels better soon soon! I totally related to your worrisome post yesterday! And found myself nodding in silent agreement as I checked each worrying moment off my list, too. And yes, I worry that the Mr. isn't worried enough, or not at all {on the surface} worried!

You took the words out of my mouth :)

Poor guy! I hope he is better soon. Don't know where you were headed but it's supposed to be cold and rainy in Southern California this weekend so you might not be missing much.

What a sweet photo with the pup!

(well missing the wedding but not beach/warm weather)

Awww, I would be throwing the biggest pity party (i.e. binging on cookies & online shopping.) Especially since this has been going on for almost a week and you've had to miss other things :( I go stir crazy if I don't leave the house for 2 days. Hoping he kicks the sickies soon!

Damn it - on both accounts!!! Hope he feels better soon.... and maybe y'all can find a nice patio this weekend with a good margarita! That's definitely no comparison to a mini beach vacay, but maybe this gives you a good excuse to plan one again???
