The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out, they eat your guts and then spit them out... Recently, my three-and-a-half-year-old and I visited a friend with dogs. Make that "dog:" one passed away a few months ago. As we pulled... Continue reading

whoa. many more people disagreed with me than i would have predicted. yes, i am indeed talking about the pentagon city costco, just outside of washington, and perhaps we are an isolated case, but insanity reigns supreme at that location. i honestly can't recall an instance when i would have used the word "friendly" to describe a single soul - patron or employee - i encountered there. the best i can do is "civil," or "didn't seem like they'd eat my children." and i'm not a curmudgeon - really!

god, what IS it about the snack thing? every mealtime, the preschooler tells me she can't have dinner, because it "hurts her tummy," and that she needs a snack instead, and that the snack should preferably be a cookie. oy.

stacy!! i'm so sorry you are dealing with this. but feel no shame -- after all, sometimes people who shun the sun completely develop it, you know? just vow to do better for yourself and your kids (and it appears you have). best wishes, girlfriend!! xo

jess, you are spot on about the consistency thing. life gets in the way, or i get distracted, and boom... consistency is out the window - and like you said, it gives those sharp little minds opportunity to look for loopholes. more undies on the way... hope you're feeling great!!!

i'm suprised that scene in "borat" didn't cure the public of our breastmilk fear. :) great post. kathie lee and hoda make me want to gouge out my eardrums with a sharp stick.

i like what "they call me mommy" says. years from now, they'll just see this as a fun adventure. i'm with you... i was all, like, "whatever, we've seen snow," and now... i'm kinda wishing i'd focused more on emergency supplies than doritos and wine. we'll survive -- we all will!

that is appalling, and i'm sorry that happened to you. someone once gave pumpkin the finger when she sang too loudly in a restaurant. she was two.

Judy, you have far more compassion for your fellow (wo)man than I do (and I like to think I'm a fairly empathetic person), and I do appreciate your perspective, because you're probably right. Still, that's sort of my point: we DO all have our stresses, and treating people rudely when it's not warranted (is it ever?) just doesn't help matters - it breeds resentment (for example, my internet missive you just read!). If you're reading this thread, do me a favor. Go out of your way today to cheer on someone (not necessarily a mom) who looks like they need it, as happened to Marty, above.

D!!! I'm waaaaay behind on news, and didn't know you were pregnant!! Congrats!!! I'm sorry you're having insomnia, though... if you won't take meds for it (totally agree, FWIW), perhaps a sharp blow to the head might help? :) Heh heh heh. Anyway, SO excited for you!!! xo

With just over two weeks left to go until our baby boy makes his arrival, the hubs and I have JUST agreed upon a name. It's a big decision! And we haven't told anyone, because, like you said, everyone has an opinion, and unless it's a positive one, I don't want to hear it! People are just going to have to pretend to like it once they meet him!

I'm so sorry I missed the chance to become confused by driving directions! I had high hopes for attending and was really disappointed that my gestational situation left me prone on the sofa instead. I hear it was a fabulous time -- thanks so much for organizing it!!

LOVE the ranty side of you!! I have personally always hated that phrase, too, ever since a jackass boss I had years ago used it with disgusting regularity over situtions I was tearing my hair out about. But I will never call you the c word. I will call others that, maybe, but not you. :)
