My boobs were my tools of the trade for almost 20 months.

Once my youngest daughter weaned herself from the Magical Boob Juice, the fun really began!

(And by fun we all know I mean chaos!)

Pull up a chair, sit a while, read a few pages.

Keep and open mind and a joyful heart and you too can get pumped into the world of The Milk Maid.


9 In, 9 Out

Ava is a big 9 months old today! We have a doctor appointment for her in a couple hours, so you know I will update with stats upon our return!

Ava weighs 18 lbs. 6 oz. and is 29" long! The doctor came in and the first words out of her mouth were, "look at that little ball of fire!".

They say it takes 9 months to gain the weight during pregnancy and 9 months to lose the weight afterwards... But since it took me 9 to lose, it's only fitting that I have gained every single darn pound back as of this morning. Isn't that just poetic.

Faith made one of her great one-liners yesterday and I must share. She had left the house with a plastic bottle of lemon flavored water and as we drove to one of many errands yesterday she said, "Things look different through the bottle". A pretty innocuous statement until you put it into adult terms and think about how the world looks when you are a little tipsy.

The class reunion is Saturday. It's all screwed up. It's so bad, I can't even write about it without having brain pain. Let me put it this way: You have a budget for a reason. And, the people I went to school with could not kick their way out of a wet paper sack. Thank goodness I am helping these morons. I may be getting a god complex from this... as long as they recognize me for the supreme being that I am, I will not have to smote any of them.

Put your smoter away! If they were idiots in high school, what makes you think they've gotten smarter? That's why I didn't go to my reunion..that...and well, I didn't want to be the victim of a hate crime in Southeastern NM!

I will test out Faiths observation as I drink my way through a cheap bottle of wine. So, I'll get back to ya on that! She sounds like a smart kid..did she get that from her father? : ) Just kidding!!! OMG..can you kick my ass through the internet?

B- I met Faith's "father" in a barn. He's so intellegent we argued for 3 days if 1/3 + 1/3 + 1/3 = a full cup. He said, "No that's just three thirds". Sheish!

Supermom said...

Wow, Ethan is going to catch up to her soon. I didn't go to my reuninion. Mikes 20 is this Sept. We might go, since we didn't go to the 10.

B said...

HA! He sounds very MarT! Much like the MC's father! : )

That's one healthy little girl you have there! I still haven't quite figured out what has possessed you to participate in your reunion (I'd be curious to know how many other nerds are in attendance =) )but I hope you have a good time. If nothing else, your experience will make a great story and we'll all be in stitches on Monday!

Oh, and I agree with Faith. I have tested this theory on numerous occasions and things really do look different through the bottle. Sometimes that's good, sometimes not, but always different.

I guess it would be wrong to encourage you to smote for my sheer enjoyment?

I love your daughter's bits of wisdom.
