Oh my... I can take the pink and pink stripes. In fact I'd use that often... Except for the whole fact that it looks like a GIANT NIPPLE! Dude, what were they thinking??

We approach the stack of bins and both girls promptly drop to the ground, grappling with their shoes. I no longer have to tell them what to do. Two little pairs of shoes plunk into the gray plastic tray and... Continue reading

Awesome post! Love it. Her comment, taken out of context or not, made me so mad. What's she selling if she can't even convince herself that she could bounce back? Kudos to you for getting your body back... then again, mine didn't look like that PRE baby! HA!

OMG you guys are hilarious. That took some serious planning. But seriously? I'm with everyone who wants a snore canceler... What if we just used that headset to amplify the snore... but just into the earphone part? So what if it wakes up the snorers? At least we could sleep! ;-)

It used to drive me batty that my husband just didn't notice the piles of laundry or the things that needed to be done. Then I realized that no one other than me was keeping myself from relaxing. Now when I get some time to myself I force myself to do what he'd do. Then when he gets home we share the chores. I end up relaxed and resentment free! And the chores still get done!

That was hilarious. It's one of those "But it's better for me!" things that you still can't be happy about. It's low to skimp on the Thin Mints, but skimping on Samoas? That's downright evil!

Oh! How fun. I'd take my daughters. They caught a moment of the movie on TV once and STILL talk about it!

I feel grateful that I've learned the 'life isn't about things, but about people' lesson early in life. It really does make living much sweeter. Great post!

That is WILD! I've never seen a double yolk. Two in two days? I'd be shitting my pants right about now too.
I got four days courtesy of my c-section and I LOVED it. Loved not sharing a bed. Not having to be "in charge." It was very relaxing and just lovely! Congratulations on the new baby!

That's it. You're done. Now that he can parrot you nothing is safe or sacred! LOL!

I'm a huge fan of the "No gifts" thing, though I have to admit that I usually find myself unable to arrive at a party empty handed. We recently went to a party where in lieu of gifts the parents asked everyone to bring a book. At the end of the party the kids all selected a book from the pile and each went home with just one book. To this day I'm still not sure how I feel about the fact that the parents essentially had us purchase their party favors, but at least we went home with something that didn't end up in the trash the next day. I'm toying with the idea of turning our next b-day party into a toy swap where everyone brings gently loved toys that they no longer play with and letting everyone pick something to take home. Not sure yet. But if you find the solution to the "No gifts" dilemma... let me know!

End of summer celebrations would have been great. With a July birthday that never even seemed to be an option!

I'm a huge fan of sharpie-ing my phone number on their bellies, it comes right off in the bath with a good scrubbing. I'd be that mom who'd leave the tatoos in her other purse, you know, the one I didn't bring...

It's fascinating to me that people ask that because it would never occur to me to ask or even care. I mean, unless there's an oddity, like twins being born on either side of midnight, who really cares? People are so strange, they worry about the oddest things!

It's crazy what it takes to finally wake up and say "I'm really a writer!" Welcome to the ranks! I can't wait to talk "shop" with you. Rose (aka Jessica Rosenberg or kikarose to the rest of the world!)

The party rocked. There are just no other words. I didn't get there until wayyyyy late, but I stayed until the bitter end. And yes, I did almost cry when the DJ played Lean on Me as the closing song. Because that was just awesome!

Are you kidding! This was THE party to be at! Wouldn't be caught dead missing it this year! See you all there!

My post is up. I delved into the issue of childhood labels forming the future adult's personality. http://www.itsjessicaslife.com/2009/05/from-childhood-labels-to-grown-up.html Jess C is right, the diversity of themes and issues is amazing in this book!

I used to be a daycare aide and I loved some of those kids, really truly loved them. And now that my own kids have daycare providers who also love them I'm glad that they get to experience that love too. I don't think that kids need to know that there's a difference between mommy and nanny love. I think it's great that even at a young age they get to know that lots of different people can love them in lots of different ways. I have no doubts that the daycare assistant who has known both of my children virtually from birth loves them deeply and I'm glad she tells them. And I'm equally sure that the assistant who only started working there last year loves them too. I don't know, maybe it's because I've worked in that environment that it doesn't bother me and that instead it delights me.

You are absolutely right, and as someone who hates the way the media/government loves to create a culture of fear around everything, I'm glad you made me see that I'm doing the same thing in my own home. Great comment!

Oh well great, now we're going to have to walk everywhere. I'm kidding obviously. Thank you for putting it into perspective for me. I hadn't ever thought of it that way, but it's true that we put ourselves and our kids in some kind of danger every day without thinking twice about it.

What a great comment Myrna. You're right, it is all about teaching them to keep themselves safe. I'll keep that in mind as I watch my little ones grow!

I totally agree with your last sentence. But my kids are 4 and 2, so they neighbor knowing their name was weird, especially since neither my husband or I knew her, nor do they go to school/daycare in our neighborhood. She wasn't a threat, it just opened my eyes a bit.
