About Mee …

 Mee Doodle is a single-mother to a baby girl, a dog and a cat.  She has a unique parenting style and personality … Here are a few things about her … (Note: Mee Doodle is based on me … so where you see my name in the drawings below — I’m also referring to “Mee Doodle”)

 

reasons-6_extreme-addiction-to-shopping

Mee Doodle has a bit of a shopping “issue” … She tends to think of it as therapy … She loves to include her child in these types of activities …

 

reasons-5_value-sleep-way-too-much

Mee Doodle really values her sleep … It’s how she keeps her youthful appearance … Oh, don’t worry!  When she’s up, the baby has almost all her attention …

 

reasons-4_keep-trying-to-ship-baby-to-dr-due-to-crying

Mee Doodle is a single parent so sometime she get’s a bit overwhelmed … but who doesn’t, right? … this Doodle needs her “me time” … Her family lives mostly in the Dominican Republic and, well, they’re always there to lend a hand when she needs them and she never takes advantage of them … 

 

reasons-3_can-be-forgetful-at-times

So she’s a little absent-minded … that never killed anybody did it?   She’s only forgotten to pick up the baby a few times … ok a little more than a few times, but she’s really working on it … She’s taking vitamins!  Or at least she would be if she’d only remember to …

 

baby-would-most-likely-come-out-alcoholic

Before she realized she was pregnant, this was one big party Doodle!  She spent most of her nights out w/ friends playing beer pong … She was well into her 6th month of pregnancy before she realized that her belly didn’t come from drinking all that beer and those Amaretto Sours … so Baybee Doodle was born w/ a bit of a “problem” … BUT … no worries!  Mee Doodle’s got this under control …

 

wouldnt-cope-well-if-boy

When Mee Doodle was preggers, she kept having this really bad dream that she *gasp* had a boy!!!   She would’ve been really disappointed … Well! thank goodness she got exactly the perfect baby for her … 

 


Author’s note:  Originally, these drawings were my Top 6 Reason’s Why I Shouldn’t Have a Baby back in 2003 … roughly 4 months or so before I actually became preggers:  They were titled (from top):  #6 – Heavy shopping addiction; #5 – Valued sleep way too much; #4 – Would keep trying to send baby away to DR every time she’d cry; #3 – Am completely absent-minded and forgetful; #2 – Partied too much and might give birth to alcoholic child; and #1 – Would be incredibly disappointed if baby was born male …  

Ironically, I ended up having a boy! and yes I was primarily disappointed but am ever so happy to have had my baby boy … He’s the love of my life!  Another couple of fun facts:  I used actual last names of my co-workers (at the time)  as the “mother’s” of the other babies in the nursery in the last picture … the picture above the couch in drawing #3 (shipping baby to DR) is based on an actual picture I took of a lighthouse by the pier close to where I live …
