"Baby fish mouth! Baby fish mouth!"


I thought the Pictionary clues would be so obvious! And yet even Bearette, who already knew I was pregnant, didn't get it. I should have just gone with my original idea, since you guys like our weekly grocery store phone conversations so much.

The grocery store

Liz: Hello?

Mike: Hey, it's me.

Liz: I know. What, is the garlic looking terrible again this week?

Mike: No, I'm way past produce. I'm already in dairy.

Liz: Record time!

Mike: You think speed shopping is hot, don't you?

Liz: Obviously.

Mike: Well, I was getting your Stonyfield organic yogurts when I noticed that they also make a special yogurt for pregnant women.

Liz: Special yogurt?

Mike: Yeah. It's called Yo Mommy.

Liz: (sputtering laughter) Yo Mommy?

Mike: Yeah.

Liz: You are joking.

Mike: No, I'm not. It has added DHA and folic acid.

Liz: (howling) Yo, Mommy! Yo, Adrian!

Mike: It also has extra Vitamin D.

Liz: They should have called it Yo Mama, and then they could have printed a yo mama joke on the bottom of each lid!


Liz: Yo mama's so skinny, she swallowed a meatball and thought she was pregnant!

Mike: It think it's obvious why they didn't go with that marketing strategy.

Liz: Hhhhhhaaaaahahahahahahahahaaaaa.......

Mike: So do you want some, or not?

Liz: (wiping eyes) Well, I guess you should get it, since I'm pregnant and all.

I'm around 11 weeks. We heard a nice, strong heartbeat on Monday and I officially lifted the gag order. By dinner time, Mike had notified the entire tri-state area and most of New Jersey.

We are thrilled. More details to come. :)

I got stuck on the two dots---Eyes? A lazy colon? Scantron answer sheet?

I think I'm just really bad at Pictionary. When I showed D, he got it immediately.

Apparently that actress can't go down the street without people yelling, "Yo, Adrian!" I saw it in Wikipedia ;) (I just saw Rocky for the first time recently...)

OMG!! Congratulations!

I swear, there must be something in the water up in the Northeast. I might have to come for a visit. :)

You know, I saw the picture initially and was all, "wtf?" but about five minutes ago I started thinking, "I bet she's pregnant."

I swear I'm psychic. :P

I am so happy for you!!!!!!!

That yogurt looks really good, actually. I like your marketing strategy but can see why it wasn't implemented ;) It would make shopping for yogurt more entertaining.

Congratulations!!! That's so exciting! :)

I thought the yogurt name was a joke too, until I saw the picture. lol

Yeah! Congratulations!

So, $50 question here: What does Alex think? Did he have any say in this new venture? 'Cause ya know, you gotta nip that sibling rivalry thing in the bud before it takes hold...


Congrats again to you and Mike!

I was surprised. The picture didn't load for me and bearette's was the only comment when I stopped by.

I thought it was a plate of cookies or something. lol

I'm so happy for you guys, and also for me, because I love reading about all things pregnancy, and seeing as you're one of my favorite bloggers, I know you'll do it up right. :)

Can't wait to hear more.

Congratulations, yo mommy!

Yes, Babel and Frema got it. I should have mentioned that. It's also worth noting that both women have given birth within the last two months, so maybe they're super-attuned to Pictionary clues of this sort. :D

Thanks, everyone.

bdogg- you should come for a visit! Then we can go to MN for the Little House musical. ;)

Babel- you can name the baby, but only if it's not Yo Baby.

Oh this made me laugh so hard! Please, somebody out there make Yo Mama yogurt with jokes under the lids.

WOOOOO HOOOOO!!!! Sorry I'm late getting to hear the news but that's the story of my life!! Congratulations!! I heard the news from my parents who live in South Jersey!!

That yogurt is too funny but it does look like something you should be eating.

And..... We DO love the grocery store phone conversations!!

Congrats again!!

I used to buy the YoBaby yogurt for my daughter. Yo Baby, you're looking good!

How exciting, I get to read about your and Bearette's bumps growing. All the fun of pregnancy without having to do it myself. (My 39th birthday is coming up so I'm too old.) Babies, yay!

Did you also realize there's a product called YoBaby, intended to be baby's first food? (Hey, it's never too early to plan ahead.)
You should be subscribing to Stonyfield Farm's Baby Babble Blog:

Loved the phone script.
