I’m feeling really inadequate right now

You know how you feel all good about yourself when you figure something new out on the computer? Or is that just me? I’ll be all “Look! I made a webpage!” and I’ll get all cocky like I’m a big computer geek like all the cool kids. Then? My BFF’s eleven-year-old daughter goes and teaches herself to make animated .gifs like the one above (teaches HERSELF) and makes me one for my goofy little website. She’s the cool one, not me. She’s ELEVEN for chrissakes. And she MADE this for ME. Thanks LaLa! I love you!

Guess what I got in the mail yesterday? A nursing necklace! Leah sent it to me to help with my problem I’ve been having with NikkiZ getting distracted while she nurses. This necklace gives her something to play with while she nurses so that it encourages her to stay focused on the nursing and the necklace because they all pull her attention in the same direction. She really likes it and so do I. If you want one too? You should email Leah at whatnotandwhimsyATgmailDOTcom (you know the deal, replace the “at” and the “dot” with the actual symbols, this...

NikkiZ’s Spring Fling was tons of fun last night. I was able to hang out with some of the other parents in our class. Also, one of her teachers made all of the babies these flower collars to wear and they were SO adorable. Our little flower garden. My Target Bakery cookies along with my Target Bakery brownies were the fastest selling items – second only to the rice krispy treats which, damn, I could have made some of those. I ended up going home with part of the Sand Castle Cake just because it was so damn awesome. And...

Define “Bake”

NikkiZ’s class is having a Bake Sale tonight. The parents are supposed to bring items to sell in the Bake Sale. Someone is baking a Sand Castle cake, others are making brownies, and muffins, and cookies. There is going to be a bounty of sugary goodness made with the loving hands of parent’s in NikkiZ’s class. I’m going after work to buy whatever Target is selling in their bakery. Bonus points will be given if something in the bakery is already packaged in a way that it can be sold in individual servings. This will keep me from needing to...

NikkiZ’s P.O. says Amoxicilin is okay 14

NikkiZ’s P.O. says Amoxicilin is okay

Please make note of my boo-boos. I have two more on the other leg. I will wake up 6 times throughout the night after this picture is taken. Pity my mother. When I walked into NikkiZ’s doctor’s office yesterday, the waiting room was FULL. This was only our second visit to the new doctor, but I know it’s a small practice so a full waiting room was very odd. The more I sat there, I realized this was all one family. One woman in her 40s, her sister, her mother, and her three kids. The three kids were all girls...
