She Only Hates Bedtime More… 31

She Only Hates Bedtime More…

NikkiZ hates having her picture taken. HATES IT. I am sure this is all my fault as I have chased her around with a camera as soon as I was able to leave the bed after her birth. When I say, “Smile!” she either ignores me completely… Or she gives me this god-awful “smile” that looks like she’s being tortured. So. Now I have learned to position myself in weird places (on the ground, in a pool, upside down, etc…) so that I can have the camera aimed at her when she smiles on her own. So – have you...

Maybe Next Year I’ll Shower

I’m not bored, but I’m extremely pissed off that I forgot cornbread mix at the grocery store so instead of writing about that, I’ll do this. A year ago I had a 12-year-old and a 1-and-a-half year old. I had just returned from BlogHer where my post-miscarriage period had turned me into a troll. Of course, it wasn’t all about being a troll. It was also about being shat upon. LITERALLY. I also observed a 3am Thanksgiving Meal that my crazy friends thought was a good idea. And of course – the most important thing I did in July of...

Best Hand-Me-Down EVAH. 20

Best Hand-Me-Down EVAH.

The above dress was given as a hand-me-down from my friend Stacey’s daughter to NikkiZ. It’s a little big for her, but it just makes it look a bit more formal as it hangs all the way to the floor, making her feel even more like a princess than she would if it fit. She has worn this almost once a day since we brought it home last week. It became a HUGE deal to get her out of the dress for any sort of activity where Ariel’s Bridal Gown might be inappropriate (like bathtime). Just when I was starting...

Miscellany Motherhood 13

Miscellany Motherhood

My daughter is currently watching Yo! Gabba! Gabba! (Hate!) while spilling oatmeal all over the floor and my son (the small one) is currently pooping loud enough that it woke up the dogs. My life is so glamorous I don’t know what to do with myself. We’ve been visiting with my Mom who is in town until tomorrow and just enjoying some calm family time. We did take an ice-cream break yesterday and NikkiZ decided to break the norm and order chocolate instead of vanilla. (Pronounced and confusing people everywhere: “Banana”.) I am now realizing why Vanilla is a preferred...

Just Curious…

Anyone else kinda in the mood to kick their feed reader in the ass for constantly reminding them that they are NOT at BlogHer but everyone else is? I’m tempted to unsubscribe to certain blogs just so I can avoid all of the “OMG. BlogHer Is So Awesome!” entries. Sob.
