Hi to All of My New Followers!

Firstly I’d like to say welcome! I’m not saying a short bit about myself. My headline says all you need to know. If you want to know more, just ask. Secondly, I feel most of you were drawn in by the clever title of my “Don’t Poke a Pooping Baby” post. The Hubby deserves all the credit for that one. It was his idea That’s it. Again, welcome and enjoy!

Don’t Poke a Pooping Baby!

The Hubby and I took Aurora to the zoo on Friday. It was more of a trip for us than for her, but it was nice. She loves being outside, and she sleeps like a rock after a day of fresh air.
We stopped to change her before we left. First off, the location of the changing station was the worst! The bathroom entrance was one where you walk in, take a left, take a right, and then you’re at the stalls. They had the changing station right in the last corner, so I’m there changing Aurora, and we are in everyone’s way. A lady with a stroller came through, and I was so confused about what I should do. I can’t just fold her up in the station, but this lady did not have much space to get through. So that was frustrating.
Now I’m used to having people swoon over Aurora. ”Oh, she’s so tiny, how old?” “She’s adorable.” “Look at the baby.” Etc.etc. But our trip to the zoo gave me a first… A lady came up and was poking Aurora, while I was changing her! Poke, poke, poke, “hi, pumpkin.” Poke, poke. What the hell? How would you like it if I poked you while you went to the bathroom? What made you decide that poking my baby was endearing? Future reference: moms, am I allowed to slap these crazies?

We have a shelf in our library dedicated to books we buy that are yet to be read. It’s never full, because I only can afford so many books at a time. I decided in wanted to put a cute little something about reading on there to fill it up. I bought this picture frame last week, and painted it gray to match the library. I only did one coat, I like how it has a bit of a distressed look to it, plus the molding is more noticeable since it’s not a solid color. Then I had to decide on a quote:
“I was born with a reading list I will never finish.” 
-Maud Casey
I was considering “Carpe Librum seize the book” or “there is something incomparably thrilling in first opening a brand new book.” But the unfinished reading list is just so true.
I am very happy with how it looks.

  • <b> The Hubby:</b> You know what I can't stand about Pepe Le Pew? That cat is hauling ass, and he's just hopping a long. But he's sheets right behind her.<p><b>Me:</b> That's because she keeps stopping to see where he is, and he just keeps hopping. It's Looney Toons.<p><b>The Hubby:</b> I guess. ...Do you like how that's where I draw the line?<p><b>Me:</b> Yes. Really. You drop a safe on Coyote, and he walks out the door. Daffy gets shot in the face, and his bill ends up on the back of his head.<p><b>The Hubby:</b> But the cat...<p><b>Me:</b> Honey! A pig in a dinner jacket has a stutter!<p>

Producitve Mommy!

Aurora sleeping through the night is so nice. It makes it so much easier to wake up and get stuff done. It is 8:40 am and I have already:
-fed and changed Aurora
-fed and let out the dogs
-showered
-enjoyed a cup of coffee
-started laundry
-started filling out daycare paper work
Hopefully I can get her down for a nap this afternoon and work on my picture frame project I started last summer. I would really like to have the entryway done by the time I go back to work, which means I need to get going. Only 30 days left of maternity leave.
