In addition to myriad and scintillating, I recently added sklonklish to my list of favorite words. I first heard it while watching The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer, a 1947 movie starring Cary Grant and Shirley Temple. I guess "sklonklish" is a made-up word, meaning you feel crummy or otherwise not very good. This is how I feel most mornings, and now that I'm pregnant it's especially so. But, I like saying "I feel sklonklish." It's got a nice ring to it.
Anyway, today I was going through some things and I came across a record of sorts of my son's newborn "sleep" habits. The first entry is dated when he was three weeks old and looks like this:
8:30pm Woke up
9:05pm Woke up
7:09am Woke up
And so on... The record ends after two days and at the bottom for some reason, I scribbled my sister's phone number down. A cry for help, perhaps? Now don't get me wrong, I'm excited about the upcoming baby but if this is any indication of what's in store, I'm going to be feeling sklonklish for a while.
