Life isn’t like the movies, and how do babies get outta there

Frances Ha. 9 out of 10 stars. At first I found the dialogue a bit disjointed and awkward but I don’t know if I just got used to it or it appealed to me more after it settled in my brain after sleeping on it. Shot in black and white, it was lovely to look at and Greta Gerwig made the movie work I think. … Continue reading Life isn’t like the movies, and how do babies get outta there

three years ago yesterday

Kiddo’s birthday was yesterday. There was just enough family, there were way too many presents, there is never enough cake. She had a crazy fabulous fun time. I can’t believe I have a three year old. You’d think I’d get used to it eventually but so far, nope. She’s a blessing and a source of much love and frustration in one tiny fireball of a … Continue reading three years ago yesterday

here i sit

In an exam room at my doctor’s office that is. They got me into a room without the usual one hour wait so that was nice. Of course, the doc might not get in here for another week or so. Scratch that. He’ll be here soon I’m sure. I’m trying to think more positively lately. Really. Not so brief recap of why I’m here…took Cooper … Continue reading here i sit

template stuff & a sam pic

I’m thinking of changing my template again. I’m very partial to the current one but…you guessed it…I’m bored, need a change…oh well, in the meantime, here’s a picture of Sam being goofy. In this particular instance she would get into this position, then turn her head to look at me and say “poop”, then resume position…I have no idea either…I think she just likes to … Continue reading template stuff & a sam pic

sam check up

Just a quickie for family to read about Sam’s doctor visit today. It was just for a check up and to get 2 immunizations. All is ok but there was a slight concern that she is losing weight, and not gaining at an appropriate level. She’s dropped below the 50th percentile and is only just over 19 lbs when she was at least 24ish. When … Continue reading sam check up

getting on with my bloggy bad self

I’m compiling a list of things that “They” don’t tell you about before you have kids of your own. The latest addition is that all members of the household will never be healthy at the same time ever again. We are constantly sick up in here. Sam is still trying to get over her latest crud and now The Accountant is really sick. In the … Continue reading getting on with my bloggy bad self

Dear Sam,

You might find this interesting when you get older. Or just further testament to your mother’s weird quirkiness. Anywho. Your father has gotten into this incredibly adorable habit of calling you “Buttercup” or “Butternut”. Don’t ask me what the whole “butter” theme is all about but isn’t that the cutest thing? Your mother (that’s me), on the other hand, tends to call you “Stinker Butt” … Continue reading Dear Sam,

yeah, i dunno either

Why I’m still up at this hour I mean. It seems that if I want to do anything non-baby related, I have to do it late at night when the house is quiet and my mind is not so manic. Besides, I had some work to catch up on since procrastination is my homeboy and now that that’s done, here I am. Today has been rather hectic, … Continue reading yeah, i dunno either
