Needy Baby, Greedy Baby
IF YOU CHOOSE TO LEAVE NEGATIVE COMMENTS IN REGARDS TO THIS POST, IT IS DISRESPECTFUL, AND WILL BE REMOVED. IF YOU DO NOT LIKE THIS, THAT IS FINE, BUT TO LEAVE RUDE COMMENTS IS CHILDISH AND UNNECESSARY. IT HAS ALSO BEEN BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION THAT DR. HOFSTADTER'S NAME HAS BEEN MISSPELLED ON THE SPINE. NOT A BIG DEAL. THE WAS SOMETHING FUN I MADE FOR MYSELF TO USE AT HOME, AND TYPOS HAPPEN. SO PLEASE, ENJOY LOOKING, BUT RUDE COMMENTS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. THANK YOU!
Needy Baby, Greedy Baby By Dr Beverly Hofstadter
Ever since this was talked about in the last episode Dr Hofstadter (also known as Leonard's mom), I knew I had to make this book. My original idea was to decoupage it as a purse I could carry around, however, I found this journal book at my local crafts store, and decided to go that route again. Needy Baby, Greedy Baby. Who could pass this up?
So, I started out scouring the Internet for images of geeky babies, but as this is something I'm considering adapting and eventually listing on my etsy shop, and well, I can't just put anyone's baby on my, ehm, Dr. Hofstadter's book, I started looking for clip art work that would do the trick. And, although the image I chose
for my cover isn't exactly as I'd image, it works.
Now, every book needs needs an author bio, and that is what I did on the back. Again, I scoured the Internet looking for images of Dr Beverly Hofstadter. And, although there are actually plenty to choose from, finding one that wasn't pixalated so small proved to be a challenge. I settled on this one. I just did a quite to the point bio of her.
"Dr Beverly Hofstadter is a leading neuroscientist and psychiatrist. She has authored several books on parenting. She is the mother of three grown children."
Of course, every book needs to be titled and authored on it's spine, and so, I followed suit and did the same myself. And, truly, I have to say, this is my favorite part of the journal. Every time I look at it, I giggle. Needy Baby, Greedy Baby. hahahahaha
