Mr Solo’s blaster is missing a piece. I found it in my daughter’s mouth. Clearly, a good blaster by your side is nothing when faced with tiny, budding, razor sharp baby teeth. Clearly, the hostile planet Hoth is a picnic compared to the dangers faced while lying on our playroom floor. And clearly, my baby and my dog, an animal who systemically chewed off all the tiny light sabers of J’s other Star Wars squatty guys, share a taste for cheap China plastic. Lovely.
Poor Han. What a blow. I only hope he can somehow recover his dignity.
And apparently, so did the Lost writers. Crazy episode. Craziness, I tell you.
(Yes, I know, Shannon is back, and is doing Lost reviews again, but now I’m addicted to doing my own. So I’m poaching. Sorry.)
Seriously, all I have to say is, Desmond’s voice is music to my ears. As one commentor over at Rocks in my Dryer put it, I could listen to that man read the phone book. And you got to feel a little sorry for the guy. He has serious time management issues. (more…)
It’s been so long, and yet it was so bittersweet. The carts were calling out to me in joy, as I walked, alone, through the silently swinging red doors. The smell of popcorn greeted me like an old friend, and yet- no children clamored and whined, and I was free- Free to ignore the popcorn and soda deal, free to walk by, gliding my happy cart loaded with only my purse and my dreams.

I’ve been thinking about Heather’s recent posts of how her children are growing up as vegetarians when I know for a fact that Heather comes from a family of serious carnivoures and would herself continue to be so if not for other medical issues. My mind started wondering about the experiences my children were having growing up that were different from my own and what, if anything, I regret not being able to give them. (more…)
The Wiz threatened my life if I didn’t put a link here, so, totally self-promoting, here is some new artwork I’ve done, and a link to my Etsy store- I have another painting I’m working on, and there may be diaper bags and scripture totes, too- If only I could clone myself!
Remember? Webisodes based on stories mothers submit? You have to watch the latest episode about the tantrums in the stores. (Preachers, panties, and policemen). And you must send in your stories. I’m thinking “robot feet” could make a good little webisode, Susan M.? Hmmm??????
Just go to http://www.inthemotherhood.com and waste some time enjoy yourself.
Anyway, it’s fun to watch, it’s fun to read, and what more could you possibly want? Enjoy!
My son had an appointment to go to an audiologist today. This is FINALLY, after a speech therapist told me to go to one, after I had to wait two months to get into the pediatrician so I could get a referral, then 3 weeks to get into the audiologist. Basically, I have been anticipating this since early December. The preschool screened his hearing again last week in anticipation.
And there is no bigger sin here at MMW than being boring.
The problem is, life just isn’t all that exciting these days. I have a baby. I keep her alive. The end.
So welcome to my random crap post. And try not to be bored.
J’s birthday is coming up, and he wants a Webkinz party. Okay. Doesn’t he know I’m NOT Tracy M, and I can’t just create Webkinz invitations and a Webkinz cake out of thin air? I did my best Tracy M impression, however, and painted a silver W sticker the colors of the Webkinz logo W, and used a yellow crayon for the circle. Tracy would be properly appalled at the result, I’m sure, but it appeased my son, so there you go.
I’m still working on the cake problem, however. Thoughts? (more…)
I’ve mentioned this before. I hate ants. With a passion. Growing up in Southern California, our home was plagued with them, and it drove me crazy. There is nothing worse than pouring yourself a bowl of cereal, adding milk, and watching ant corpses bob to the surface. It was enough to make an 8 year old who loves her Fruit Loops weep.
Hubby came home last night with the chorus of “Who wants a cookie?” And of course my children then proceeded to worship him. (in a totally non-blasphemous way, of course) But when he brought me one, I realized it was a Girl Scout cookie, and not the RIGHT KIND of girl scout cookie.
Several months ago I read a book called (I think) Confessions of a Slacker Wife/Mom? (or something close to that, I’m slacking so much I don’t feel like looking it up). I saw the book referenced again a while ago and while the contents weren’t stirring to me, the title got me thinking. Lately I’ve had a few slacker moments myself. The last week I read a book about the trend of extreme parenting in this country called “Even June Cleaver Would Forget the Juicebox” (I read it recently enough that I remember the whole title).
