L-A-Z-Y - I Got No Alibi.

I will admit, I'm lazy. My child was introduced to the potty 6 months ago, showed alot of promise, pooping, and peeing on several occasions. She's interested, I'm not. I like diapers. They're easy. I always know where the poop is, and there are no "Mommy, I have to tee-tee" moments, while driving down the interstate, miles from the nearest restroom, that will in no way meet my standards of cleanliness.

I've tried to play it cool, acting like I'm the "laid back" Mom, just letting the Munchkin "explore" her options, and take her time. No potty boot camp kind of training, or setting the potty up in the living room for us. Laid back? HA! I'm just down right lazy, and unwilling to give up the convenience of our beloved Cruisers...

What's the largest size those come in anyway?

Martha Stewart, Part II


First it was a dress, now I'm painting!!

I went with some Mommy friends last night to one of those art classes, where you paint step by step with an instructor, while getting shitty from all of the wine you get drink while painting.... of course being preggers put a little damper on the "shitty" part of this activity, but rest assured, I will definitely being going back to see what kind of masterpiece I can create when I'm sloshed!

Iron Bowl 2007 Celebration

Sorry to my Bama friends, I couldn't let a 6th straight win pass with out a little something on my blog!

Senior, Quentin Groves leads this cheer after our win over Bama this past Saturday. War Damn Eagle!!!

Weekend in Review.

We've had so much going on since last week, I thought I would just give a little re-cap.

Last Wednesday, BFF and family were here for Thanksgiving. We were able to spend some time with them, and let the little love birds reunite. It's always so great to see them, and spend time with them, it just sucks to see them go...

Thursday, Thanksgiving day, spent time with family, stuffed our faces and fought this losing battle with the hemorrhoids that have decided to come back with this pregnancy, with a vengeance!

Saturday of course - Iron Bowl baby. We had a party with some of our friends and their kids. We thought the outcome was WONDERFUL! Some in attendance, not so much. But despite that, we had a great time. Great friends and great food. I couldn't help but think about what we did for this game every year, before the Munchkin entered our life. Boy, how things change. Although from the sounds coming from this house, that could be heard out to the street, you would never know things were more tame now. That's what you get with 5 toddlers chasing each other around the dining room table. Good times.

Sunday, went with a couple friend and their daughter to see the Bee Movie. The girls did great, sitting through the entire movie, better than I could have imagined. The Munchkin ate her weight in popcorn, and she now pretends that she and "Tooty" are bees, running around the house buzzing. Please keep in mind that Tooty is not here for these little episodes, she has a great imagination, scary in fact.

Monday, we went and got our Christmas tree and have been working on getting our house decorated.

So that's it, nothing extremely exciting. This time next week, I will have some very exciting news to report, assuming "Bebe Dos" will spread his/her legs for the nice Ultrasound Tech. Anyone want to place some bets?

Happy Turkey Day!

Thanksgiving day feast + Maternity Pants = Fantastic combination!!!!

I think that this will now be my new Thanksgiving tradition, pregnant or not, I will be sporting a pair of super elastic, maternity pants. I think for the first time in history, I was able to eat 2 plates of food, without having to unbutton my pants. Thanks to the extra wide elastic band on my pants, I was quite comfy, and able to breath even after dessert.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day, and I hope you were all able to spend time with the family and friends you are thankful for.

Not Just Turkey Week.

If you are anywhere close to the great state of Alabama, or even remotely interested in college football, you must know that not only is this the week of Thanksgiving, it's Iron Bowl week. In my opinion, the most rivaled game in college football will take place this Saturday. The game that divides friendships, families and households. The day in which you can no longer be undecided, you are either with us, or for Bama....

Who will win this game is anyone's guess. It's a game full of intense emotion on both sides, all hoping, praying, that they can walk away with the coveted "bragging rights" that will carry them on to the next year.

It's only Wednesday and I'm already nervous! Auburn is favored by 6 points, and on paper, we should win. But none of that will matter, come 7:00pm on Saturday. All of the statistics go out the window, and it's 3 hours of white knuckle, nerve racking football!

So let's get ready Auburn fans, it would be great to make it 6 in a row, and hand Bammer a season that could potentially knock them out of Bowl eligibility.

WAR DAMN EAGLE!

Blabber Mouth, Me?

Do you ever just have one of those Ah-ha moments, when you come to realize something about yourself, good or bad?

I had one of these moments the other night, when it was brought to my attention that I like to talk. I was having dinner with my Sister and Mom, and we were discussing why the Munchkin never stops talking, EVER! My Sister politely reminded me that she gets it honestly, as I never really stop talking either. Maybe it's my sales background, maybe it's the fact that I'm cooped up with a Toddler the majority of the day, every day, and feel the need to rattle off to anyone who will listen to, or tolerate me.

If you have been on the other end of one of these verbal vomit moments, wishing to God that I would shut the hell up, I apologize. Next time just smack me in the head and we'll call it a day.

My One Week Milestone... Almost.

I was supposed to be able to get on here today and blog about how I thought I had turned the corner. I felt good for almost an entire week! Sure, I still had moments during each day that I would have to sit for a minute, but I was soooooo much better. And then yesterday, when my parents arrived to see the Munchkin, I was blowing chunks in the bathroom, again. I was forced to fall back on my trusty little pills to get through the day.

This morning I woke up with a list of errands to run, including getting food to cook for a lady in a Foundation that I volunteer for, it's 5:30pm and I have yet to make it to the grocery store... Olive Garden take out is looking really good right now.

I was even convinced that I had found a miracle cure - Vitamin water. I picked one up on a whim last Wednesday, when I was having probably the worst day I'd had in 9 weeks. I started feeling so good. I sent Hubby out to stock up on this new found cure. Today it failed me!

Now, I got nothing, no other tricks in my bag. I've tried pretty much everything I've heard (except for eating a hard boiled egg first thing the in the morning, need I explain) ginger ale, crystallized ginger, chewing gum, mints, preggie pops, and numerous other tidbits of info, all of you kind people have passed along.... I just think I'm in this for the long haul. God help me!

Where Does It Come From?

We are having the Munchkin's 2 year pictures done on Friday. We've had to reschedule because of the weather and this time it's looking sunny - Yay.

So, I was sitting here looking at our photographers site today, trying to get some ideas on any props I could take, or cute color combos for us all to wear. The Munchkin climbed into my lap to look at the pictures, and I explained that we were having our pictures done on Friday (because all 2 year olds can comprehend the days of the week, I know right?) Then she looks at me and says "No Mama, I will do it on Monday."

She's a freak I tell you - A complete and total freak of nature that amazes me on a daily basis.

Look Mommy, "Straws"

I have to give you a little background here before explaining this mornings horrible mishap.

Adding insult to injury, I had to make a little impromtu appointment with the Doctor this week for a bacterial infection. Morning sickness wasn't keeping me down enough that now I have to deal with this.

The Doctor asked if I would rather have the oral, or vaginal medicine. Warning me that the pills would most likely make me nauseous, she thought I would rather have the vaginal. The thought of injecting a cold, gooey, gel up my wussy did not sound appealing, but I'm so tired of being sick, I went with the inserts.

(If you are a male reader, feel free to re-visit a later post, I won't blame you)

So, all week I've been following the instructions right before bedtime, and taking great care to wrap and "hide" the little applicators in the bathroom trash. Well, this morning (I'm sure you've guessed it) the Munchkin came walking into the living room with several of them in her hand.... This is so wrong on so many levels I can't even believe I'm sharing this. She thought they were straws!!!! I freaked out, and immediately scrubbed her hands profusely with soap, hot water and of course, Purell!

Runway or WNBA?

According to yesterdays measurements at the Doctor, the Munchkin is going to be a very tall girl. On the "guesstimate" of doubling her height at this age, she is going to be around 6 feet tall. Since she is in the 45th percentile for weight, this makes her tall and skinny.. Supermodel maybe? Whatever it is, I hope she will be able to financially support her dear old parents for life!

Idiot of the Day Award.

I took Munchkin in for her 2 year check up today. As we were heading to sit down in the "WELL" baby seating area, I caught the tail end of a conversation between two other Moms. One saying something about how she hates to sit on the "sick" baby side, even when her kids are sick. Now, I must agree that I cringe at the thought of sitting in that germ infested area with the Munchkin, on the rare occasion we have to make an unscheduled visit to the Doctor. I can't stop myself from thinking about all of the things she is picking up to bring home with us, in addition to her current ailments, but I do it!!!

This lady had no more finished that sentence when her oldest daughter projectile vomited all over the place. The Mom of course rushed her off to the bathroom and came back with some paper towels to clean up the mess. Another lady told me that she was there because they were throwing up, and she thought it was something they ate. Ahem, Bull shit! What the hell was she thinking? Not only did she possibly infect all of the kids in that seating area, she never told anyone what happened, and I had to stop another lady from sitting in the seat that she had only wiped with a paper towel, no disinfectant, nothing.

It's a good thing that our name was called and she didn't bring her kid back into that room, I would have hated to go all hormonal on her ass. Don't tempt me right now people, I've been sick for 8 weeks and looking for an excuse!

Back to the letter "P." PURELL is what I, again, lathered the Munchkin in, after we left... Wise up people, it's not rocket science.

Week 14.......Blech!

Can I just say that this new little baby is kicking my ass??? I'm at week 14 and supposed to be getting over this whole sickness thing. Now it's interfering with me going to lunch with "my bitches" this is not cool.

Gag reflexes are worse than ever, and I'm truly afraid to go out in public for fear of puking all over the place.

How much longer will this last?
