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.



This morning as I made my usual bloggie-rounds, I discovered I had a wonderful surprise waiting for me at Play Groups Are No Place For Children ...

Much thanks to Jennifer the Binky Bitch!! If you don't read her blog, then you can't be my friend anymore. Ok, I'm kidding about the friend part, but she's really funny and it's you who will be missing out if you don't go over there right now.

In other news: I've been puked on twice today. Ava is not feeling well. For a kiddo who made it 13+ months without being sick (except that one time she was a little sniffly) she sure has made up for it the past week. Teething, a cold with a very runny nose, and now barf. Ya know, after having milk puked in my hair this morning, I kind of miss the snot.

It's come to my attention that quite a few of you would love to whack the dookie out of my dearest Big J after The Little Black Dress post. Before you fill a tube sock up with nickels and head this way, let me explain one thing:

I don't mind him looking at other women. As long as he looks as me on occasion, does a little grab-assing, gives me smooches and the lot then I really, truly don't care WHO he looks at. In fact, I have always told him if he could find a woman who enjoyed scrubbing the house from floor to ceiling 7 days a week he could bring her home. I know who he loves! But- Big J- you'd better fulfil your husbandly duties in the bedroom very soon... I might start having those lettuce dreams again.

Faith and I had a very interesting conversation about religion this morning on the way to school. She asked why a classmate didn't stand for the Pledge of Allegiance. I tried to explain that people from different cultures and religions sometimes didn't do things exactly the way we did them, and that this was ok. In fact, that is what keeps life interesting. We talked about the different "gods" out there from God to Allah. Then I tried to explain to her the difference between monotheistic and polytheistic religions (one god vs. many gods). I told her that monotheistic religions were like Wal-Mart... There was one place you could go for everything, much like Christians pray to one God for world peace, rain, spiritual salvation, and a smaller tush. Polytheistic was like shopping at a specialty shop. Say you need really good shower gel and soap? Well, go to Bath & Body. You need organic flax-seed cereal? Head to the whole foods mart! Desire a sushi appetizer? You most certainly don't go to the Wally for sushi!

Poor Ava. She's having a sucky week..yours isn't great either. I will have to admit that I'm a little peeved at Big J. But, as long as you're okay with the wandering eye, I'll get over it. I just don't want you to feel inferior to some skanky hide down at the Hooters. I'm sure Jef knows what he has at home..but maybe he needs a little refresher course in appreciation? Deena has a crowbar that I can borrow. : ) love ya Big J!

So sorry about the puke. Just don't hold her above your head. My mom did that once with my baby sister and got puked on her face. Yuck. And I liked how you explained the whole religious thing to faith. That was pretty good.
