My mini-me

In my mind, if I had a daughter, she would wear get-ups like this one, every single day.
(The pic is from my new favorite fabric website Moda Bake Shop, and the pattern is from Bananafana Designs. I mean, even the pattern brand is delicious.)

I don't want a mansion or ferrari-

but if I had some extra money kicking around, what I really want these days are:

my Changa MBT's

and my netbook.
I mean, "Masai Barefoot Technology", who doesn't want that? And I wear sneaks like others wear socks (which I habitually do NOT wear), so these were made for me! And a computer smaller than the book I am reading from the library? It could be my own "blackberry"--since I really have no need for a blackberry. But a computer I could file in my bookshelf, slip in my purse (which, I admit, is excessively large regardless), or carry from room to room for up to 6 hours...that is my kind of technology.

Whose interested in sponsoring me?

We're at 14 minutes and counting...

Our 15 minutes of fame are almost up. But until then, enjoy.

Some things can't be unread.

And truth be told, this has nothing on the swine castration chapter. I'm not sure I am getting paid enough.

Oh what the neighbors must think when the windows are open!

"No, poop is NOT something we can talk about at the table."-Mom
"Can I have a mirror in my room so I can see my booty when I dance naked?" -G

"Mom, I have poop crumbs in my bed."-G
"I know some kids...they're not the brightest bunch." -F
"Get your hands out of your pants! Again."-Mom
"I wish I had the power of mind control--but I would only use my power for good." -G

"Yes, you have to wear clothes to the dinner table." -Mom
"Mom, G sat on my head!" -S
"No it's not a firecracker, it's a penis!" -Mom

Somehow, as indignant am, I still end up with the quotable one liners. Sometimes I think surrender would be easier.

The aprons can cease. They won't, but they could.

Our weeks of creating distractions, nail biting, and stomach churning every time the phone rings are over. It is official: Jack has a new job come July 1st.Congrats Babe!

I might be a little compulsive

I find something I like and I latch on like there is no tomorrow. I wish I actually liked to sew and not just the end product.

As per your request Jenny, I made this one for you. My first time using rick-rack, I feel like June Cleaver...and now you can look like her.
