The first moments of this week's episode had me crying! Could the moment of Bethenny telling Jason's parents the baby's name be any more beautiful? I am trying to put it into words which I am never short of and I actually can't. What an amazing way to honor Jason's brother! Giving Carol and Bob a granddaughter is one thing, honoring the baby with their lost son's name is a priceless, beautiful gift. I can't believe I am going to say this, but that moment…it kind of blows the wedding out of the water! And, I'm OK with that.
I've always heard having a baby changes a person. Nothing could be more accurate when it comes to Bethenny. As Jason said she is so nurturing, kind and sweet now that she has baby Bryn. And I think the birth of Bryn has made Jason much more caring and protective. The reality of the situation is it's not just Jason and Bethenny anymore. There's a baby involved that is so innocent, tiny and beautiful.
I was lucky enough to find all this out first hand! Shortly after Bryn's birth I received an email from Bethenny asking if I would like to help plan and design the baby shower. I was like, are you kidding me?! Did the planets and stars align and I wasn't told? Seriously?! This could mean only one thing…I regained Bethenny's trust! Let's face it, after threats of ripping my anatomy apart and coming way to close to certain parts of her anatomy, I think we finally understood each other. She understood my style and I understood her expectations. And planning this baby shower would be no different than planning the wedding, all the same expectations would apply.
Going over to see Bethenny (and Cookie) I was no longer nervous like I was when planning the wedding. OK, that's not entirely true. I would be lying if I said otherwise. I wasn't nervous to see Bethenny or Bryn. I was however, nervous to see Cookie. I'm not sure what it is, but that dog terrifies every piece of my being! I thought bringing a little treat would help…it did, for 2.5 seconds. In Cookie's mind she was probably like, "Thanks for the treat…Sucker!" In my mind I was like…progress. Hell, only time will tell with that one. Bring a treat when entering and leave quietly while exiting and no one gets hurt.
