The Diary of Mrs. S

Special Delivery

Remember when I told you about Mr. S ordering this for Baby S. Well, he also ordered this for himself. He had been waiting nearly a week for these to arrive. Side story, Mr. S works for FedEx Express.....key word express. Hence, the use of airplanes. These items were shipped FedEx Ground from Washington state. Hello, other side of the country completely. FedEx Ground is the truck based extension of FDX Corporation. It was the cheapest for shipping also. We don't get the enormous discount when things are ordered via the website, but seriously, it is dirt cheap for us to FedEx something. Anywho, I do have a point in which I will get to in a moment. But first, let me just reference the FedEx Ground and FedEx Express situation. Mr. S was expecting his package like on Tuesday, he ordered the things Friday. The expected arrival date was today, Jan. 12. He even called about the package because he wasn't pleased with the lack of updating of the website for tracking the package through Ground. This is funny to me, because he is not used to waiting that long for a package. Again, he works for Express. Another reason this is funny to me is because Mr. S just can't grasp things being closed at any time, especially on Sunday. He says he is used to picking up the phone anytime of day, especially at 3:00 in the morning, and getting what he needs. Ya know, cuz FedEx is a 24 hour. 365 day company.
Oh, so back to my original point about the package coming yesterday. He was so excited to rip open the box to find Baby S's fleece jacket. He didn't even look at his pullover until he had checked out the little jacket. My niece and nephew were over, and he called them into the kitchen so he could show it to them. So sweet, he was more delighted that baby girl's jacket came. He made sure to show it to my mom when she came over, too. Oh, and his pullover was nice, too. He tried it on and put it in the bedroom. But like I said, made sure he kept out Baby S's little jacket.
He also said, "Oh, she can wear it home." Me, I said "Um, honey, it will swallow her whole. It's a 12 month size." He has no idea how tiny she will be in his arms. Gotta love him for that.


  • How sweet. Look at him. He's already acting like a true parent...putting Baby S and anything and everything to do with her before himself. Makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.
