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.


All Hail Friday Mish Mash

I saw an ad online encouraging you to speak to your children now about underage drinking. There is a little girl in the ad, approximately 11 or 12 with braided piggy-tails staring off into space as she stirs her martini with her toothpick of olives. Believe me when I say that underage drinking is a major problem. But a martini? Don't you think a can of Natural Light or a bottle of Boone's Farm would be a little more the pre-teens speed for their drink of choice? Is this kid from Manhattan? In Faux-British accent: "Oh father wont mind of I borrow a sip or two of his Beefeater will he mother?"

Happy Haiku Friday to everyone-

Sleepwalking husband
Just trying to save the baby
Come back to bed dork
Late night hootie owl
Better than the goat noises
Only wanted sleep
Grissom you are a hot nerd
Got a thing for you

RPNC weigh-in: 190.5 -- not bad for someone who had a bag of candy for breakfast (but it was a small bag!).

Ava has a doctor appointment in Atlanta today. We are going to speak to a plastic surgeon about removing her skin tags on her ear. Although, we've decided that we are not going to remove the tags UNLESS they are interfering with her hearing (which they are not) or there is a specific advantage to doing this procedure now instead of letting her make the decision later. They are a part of her identity, they are a part of the special little baby we love so much. They are something I would totally pierce if they were mine!

Of course, the only real reason we are going is if we don't get the referral from the insurance company now and complete all the rigmarole they set forth, then they will give us the poo-poo face at the doctor's office and the insurance company. So, hold that hoop steady cause here I come!

And did you know that there is only ONE pediatric certified plastic surgeon within 100 miles of where I live? I guess there isn't much call for toddler cheek implants and baby-botox these days. What is the world coming to?

I like Grissom too!

Have fun in Atlanta... be careful!

Michell said...

I like Grissom too. He is kind of hot. And I think it's funny that you would pierce the tags if they were on your ears. I don't think I would as I am a bit afraid of the pain of the whole thing. I don't know why. Have a good time in Atlanta.

so Jef was actually sleepwalking? I hope you lock your doors at night! One time I sleptwalk all the way across the street, walked in my neighbor's house, went into my friend's room and laid on top of her. All I remember was waking up on my front door step and thinking, "Why am I here?"

Hope you can make a fun day out of Atlanta!

Michelle said...

Good luck at the doc Ava! Enjoy your day!

I love that you embrace Ava just as she is. She is definitely much loved! And are you saying you didn't drink martinis when you were 12? How strange... I was more of a Scotch on the rocks girl myself, but still.

By the way, that Scotch comment was just a joke. I didn't have my first drink until I was 18.
