Sleeping Baby and What I Learned About Tape

X in glassesI laid my 4 month old Xavier, on his belly to take a nap 30 minutes ago (despite all the warnings I found on Google) and although he’s probably enjoying the most peaceful sleep he’s ever had, I’ve already checked on him (7), wait….(8) times. I blame Google. Since the night I went into labor, I’ve been Google-ing things, hey, look at that, turns out Google-ing isn’t a word, what if I spell it Googling. Nope. How about Googleing. Nada.  Still getting those little red squiggle lines. Well that settles it. If its not even a word, I’m not living my life by what it tells me to do or not to do anymore.

I’ve been thinking lately about that saying that goes something like, “I wish I knew then what I know now.” Well, I’ve come to the realization; I kinda wish I knew now what I knew then. I don’t know if it’s the pregnancy brain, (which apparently is called ‘sleep deprived brain’ after the kid comes out) or what, but I can’t remember a quarter of the stuff I knew back when I was in school.

Back in middle school I was doing things on a graphing calculator that’s equivalent to brain pornography. I couldn’t tell you

My Addiction to Wife Swap, and Other First Time Momstakes…

IMG_1472I had a baby 3 months ago today. His name is Xavier and he is pretty rad. I have to say though, that I’m still not used to being a Mom.  I have no idea what I’m doing, and probably won’t for another 54 years from now. I figure by the time he’s 54 and 3 months, I might have more of an idea about how to do this whole

I work with dogs so the downside is that I have to pick up a lot of their poop, but the upside is that they don’t think it smells like roses. I think it’s crazy when you hear stories about celebrities who think

Have you ever eaten a lot of carrots and felt sick? Sometimes I find that if I eat carrots on an empty stomach, they make me nauseous. Boy did I just not know how to spell

People are so funny about free samples. Free anything really. They flock to it like starved vampires in the night. Do vampires flock? I wonder if a bunch of Vampires would be called a flock. Although if I ever needed to say

I feel like I’ve lost a lot of my creativity since when I was a little Mindy. I used to see a cardboard box and think, “aw cool, a fort, or a spaceship or a stuffed animal bus!” Now I see a cardboard box and I think
