“You look just like your mother!” Ever hear that? Check this out! I swear, I want to do one with my daughter and one with a photo of my mom.
My heart goes out to this family. I hope whatever will happen brings some measure of peace to her family, however small a comfort that may be.
What do YOU think happened to this little girl?
I love these, but also find them slightly creepy. The kid is adorable, but I wonder if she works around his sleeping baby body, or if she picks him up and plunks him into these scenes??
I’m flabbergasted. (And I can’t seem to get rid of that image of the happy birthday cake. Pretend it says Happy Fucking New Year, okay?)
Hah hah! I’ve always wanted to use that word.
Now, I get sick on an average of 4 to 5 or even 6 times per year. I rang in the new year with a sinus/ear special infection, and have been recovering with the cursed antibiotics since.
My husband, who proudly proclaims that he’s NEVER sick, is just that. Sick. He’s got bronchitis, and as soon as he got the Official Seal of Bronchitis, he’s taken to having a mantra of “I feel so sick” and then “oh my God”, and occasionally, “am I gonna die?” The final question has had a change in answer since yesterday. I now tell him “yes, yes you will. It’s up to you if it’s sooner or later”.
Whining. Requesting all kinds of things. Being a total pain in the ass. Begging to have his temperature taken every 20 minutes.
But I’m a Buddhist, and I’m working on my compassion. I’m trying, honestly. I have to wonder what the neighbors think as I walk from the sickbed (bedroom) to the kitchen saying something along the lines of “Okay honey. I’ll get you more water. And then I’ll dump it over your fucking head if you don’t stop telling me how shitty you feel and how to handle our daughter from your bed!!!!!”
Do you know that yesterday was so bad that when my sister picked up Kiddo and I to go to Walmart, I was excited!!! I HATE Walmart with a passion!!!!
Ah, and on the final bit. I am now sick. Ugh. I feel so sick. Oh my GOD! Am I gonna die??
Linda Vernon’s blog is one of the funniest, most creative and well written blogs I’ve read in ages. This particular gem had me going today!! Make sure you click below for a good time.
Here is a follow up for those of you who are interested. I told you before how it pisses me off to be pissed off. And I was seriously pissed at my husband. Now, there is no doubt I will be again, but for right now, I am okay with him. I told him that I wanted an apology (a real one) and some flowers.
Instead, he bought me a new tablet, and then apologized to me in front of our daughter. It felt sincere and actually made me feel better.
So, all is forgiven….until next time!
This is nothing short of wonderful and full of compassion.
Scary Mommy, you got a new big fan! Mommy Man, you know I love you!!
What an amazing story. His parents boarded a train without him, and they never found each other again. Until now. It really makes me wonder how this could happen…but I’m glad he found his family!
What a beautiful story of Malissa Booth, her hunt for the right tattoo artist to honor the memory of her brother, and who eventually went into the field and opened her own shop.
I didn’t get to see Ink Master last night. Oh my god, I wanted to see it so badly! Like I was a 16 year old wanting to see Johnny Rotten perform live (yeah, I wanted that all the time when I was 16. 17, 18, 19, 20, 21 and probably for a few more years too). But Kiddo couldn’t sleep. She was scared. So I shed Mama Tattoo to be plain old Mama and cuddled up in her bed with her.
There’s nothing quite like sleeping with my daughter. I have to make her face the wall and not speak to me. This is an exercise in futility. She likes to “talk” to me about, well, everything. This is where she tells me that her teacher tells her to wake up during the day. It’s when she tells me her real feelings about her classmates (she does this using a scale of her 7 year old hands being spread apart or slammed together. Sometimes the hands spread apart, come together and form a heart. This I usually miss because I’ve turned the other way in an effort to ignore her. But it’s impossible. I’m sorry, look, I know how irritating it is to hear about someone’s kid, but mine is so frigging entertaining, and sweet, and funny.
I fell asleep moments after I felt the twitch. She twitches as she falls asleep. I usually wait for two twitches and then it’s safe to get up and go to the living room. I was out before #2!
So don’t tell me who won. I will watch it today after volunteering for the book fair in Kiddo’s school. My guess is that Tatu Baby will be out, that Joey will be out and that Jime will win. Coming back next year should be Kyle. I was so sad to see him go. I love Tatu Baby, but I really thought he should have been part of the final three.
I totally loved Craig, and I have to say I didn’t like the show as much once he was gone.
I’ll update when I catch up!!
Nick Wihlborg, 10, of Stanhope was diagnosed with cancer, and his parents, Nick and Lori, are working hard at raising money to pay for his treatment.
God, I really hope they raise what they need and even more, I hope Nick gets through this just fine!
