I don’t even.

You see what you’ve done to me?  I’ve been trying to figure out for two days how to express how astonished, bowled over, and grateful I am to everyone who contributed (or complained about not being able to contribute!) to my fabulous virtual baby shower, hosted by my dear friend Jennifer Fulwiler . . . and the best I can do is to stammer like an idiot (see title).

What I’m trying to say is, BOY, that was a lot of money. Thank you.  It not only helps tremendously with all the “new baby/end of year/Christmas everything/beginning of year/taking time off work/holy cow did we really go through all those diapers already/damn, there goes another little bit of tooth” expenses, but it took away so much ANXIETY.  You guys are the best.  I never expected anything like this, and it honestly still hasn’t even hit home yet!  Jen is going to send me a list of the names of people who contributed, and I will be sending personal thank-yous soon.

I wish I could say I’ve been saving up something special as a way of showing my gratitude, but I don’t even know where the baby is just now (just kidding, she’s sleeping in her car seat on the floor by the heating vent).  Well, here’s something you’ve probably already seen, but it’s pretty much the best thing I’ve seen all year.  So, from my snarky heart to your generous ones, thank you, readers.


  1. Silly Simcha, of course we wanted to spoil you for the advent of your new child. And, please, I only contributed a few pennies, so don’t bother to write to me. The joy your blog brings me far outweighs my cash contribution. And this video is priceless. I must show it to my husband immediately.

    • Ditto the above! Plus, you have other things to do, like write your awesome-sauce columns or nap with your sweet baby! Merry Christmas!
