Living with Liv

Sugar and Spice, and everything nice. That's what little girls are made of. What the heck is mine constructed of then? She just told Pierce, "Dude, quit being a princess and pin it to win it."

Chalk one up for Mommy!

I let Liv stay up late and watch Alice in Wonderland tonight, after Pierce went to bed. When I tucked her in after the show, she made my night. "Thanks for letting me stay up late tonight. It sure seems like you're starting to get the hang of this whole Mommy thing." I'm going to take this as a compliment, and we all know, that girl does not hand those out.

Why am I such a freak magnet?

"Wow, you look awfully young to be THAT pregnant!" "Wow, you look awfully normal to be that judgemental. Oh, and this is my third." I can only handle so many stupid comments. Sorry to the crazy old hag who finally broke the camel's back.

What a guy...

Pierce just ran across the living room towards the kleenex, realized he wouldn't make it, and grabbed the dog's ear to sneeze into. Today, I am picking my battles, so I pretended not to see. But if you come over, you may not want to pet Nalah's left side.

It takes me one full week to find the time and energy to wash my floors. Then, it takes me 3 hours to actually wash them. It takes Pierce 3 seconds to stick his hand into his own diaper, realize there is poop on his hand, and vomit ALL over the clean floor. I quit.

Baby Daddy

Despite what Liv is telling people, this baby is not a half-brother or sister. It has been fun to watch people's faces when she says it, but I'm getting a little nervous she's gonna bust it out at the next family reunion.

Oh Pierce

God gave me Pierce to remind me I will never be perfect at anything. Especially parenting.

Single Wife Sydrome

Some days, I see far too many parallels between my life and a WWF wrestling match. It wouldn't be such a big deal if someone could tag me out.

Just a Mom

I spent the weekend painting a dresser for the baby. I was pretty proud of myself, but Liv may have brought me down a notch. "Wow Mom, I guess you're good at something! Too bad it's not anything cool though, hey?"

Body Parts

Things that make your heart skip a beat at the doctor's office:

"Where the heck is this baby's head?!?".

Well, I'm hoping attached is the right answer, but your guess is as good as mine.

His Father's Son.

I tried to be patient with you when you thought it was funny to stick your testicles to the sliding glass doors Pierce, but I draw the line at my picture frames.

I don't think I realized HOW different raising a little boy would be.

It's in the genes...

I am rarely surprised by the strange things my children do. Why, you ask?

Because I married a man who manages to inhale cous cous up his nose at dinner, has to show me how well he can lunge everytime he puts on tight jeans, and has been known to eat play-doh in his adult years.

Really, by reproducing with that, what did I expect?
