“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??
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.
This is just one. The filming of the MGM lion!
It’s an amazing little collection and much is heartbreaking. The one that killed me was the baby crying at a bombed out train station in Shanghai in 1937. Some say it’s a staged photo, but the Japanese had a bounty on the photographer’s head.
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!
I was so lucky to find this wonderful piece today after finding one about Father’s Day, which I will post separately. This spoke to my heart in terms of my relationship with my mother, and also my relationship with Kiddo. Lovely!
I really liked Lisa Belkin’s writing style from my last post and found something else I’d like to share! This one is much more recent.
I had found a little blurb about an air conditioner falling out the window of Louise Wise Services in the 80s that landed on a man and killed him, so I googled the agency and this is what I found.
This is an old article written by Lisa Belkin. It’s really shocking and upsetting. Louise Wise Services, an agency that matched childless Jewish couples with babies seemed to have a whole lot of trouble telling potential parents the truth of where the children were coming from. Mostly mental hospitals. Check it out. It’s very interesting.
