Your Game Face

Everyone has an image that we present to the masses. I call it the game face. It is who we are with some of the the things that make us us with the volume turned up and some muted. We do this so we don't seem crazy or unstable.

Then you get married. It is astonishing how much my husband knows about me. It is disconcerting and comforting all at the same time. I never realized that my true face could be so appealing to someone else.

Sign of the Times

It is a significant point when you change the sheets on your bed from summer cotton to heavyweight flannel.

Damn Hormones

I was watching the Chronicles of Narnia and I got upset that someone was not there to watch the children.

Weird new pregnant things

Leg cramps that go away when I drink some water
Ears popping
A craving for tonic water

My Tuesday Night

I made a pot roast.

And an applesauce spice cake

My two big loves are unconcious (or at least in bed):

Things I intend to eat after I give birth

Sushi including:
Nigiri Salmon
Yummy Roe

Strong Coffee, leaded

Mt. Tam cheese, A whole round

The crap candy

Halloween is upon us. Which means, for me at least, giant bags of candy. And I never want just one kind of candy. I want the assortment. Have you ever noticed that an assortment has one candy that is a dud?

For instance, I recently got a mix of Almond Joy, Kit Kat, Take 5 and Hershey's Kissables. The crap one is the kissables.

Well this is what I think

I will name my child:
Ava Jin Kye-Smith.

It is very disconcerting when you are having sex with your husband and your baby decides to make her little presence known.

I think in my head, I always had the thought: MOMS DON'T HAVE ORGASMS

I have had heartburn for about four months.

Damn annoying.

My dog has no damn sense



These two dogs are spending time together. It has been raining for about 36 hours straight.

ARLO has enough sense to come in from the rain.

Lola does not.

I love working.

I do.

I love the adrenaline rush and stress of it. I am glad I am not doing it now while I am pregnant.

I think working is bad for pregnancy.

I go to the bathroom every 22 mintues on average.

This means that I cannot go to FREAKIN Target without taking a piss.

I don't think my body is mine anymore.

Jumping the Shark

Jumping the shark is when a TV show began to suck. I am re-wathcing Buffy the Vampire Slayer and I have to say when the shark was jumped is the introduction of Dawn. She was the singlemost annoying character EVER.

I ADORE Grey's Anatomy. I wonder when they will jump the shark?

Baths and Hair Brushing

Yohboh is looking forward to baths and hair brushing.

I am looking forward to being called Mommy.

The problem with women

Why are women harsher judges of other women then men?


I had a conversation with a woman about a man who emotionally abandoned his two children. This woman forgave him. But called another woman a whore for doing the same thing.

Think about this: When you meet a widower raising his kid all alone, you feel something. If you meet a single mom, you feel nothing.

Body Issues

I have body issues. My stomach is the equivalent of LOATHING in my vocabulary. These things have not gone away from pregnancy. I really hate my stomach.

I am really going to try not to pass on these body issues onto my daughter. I do not want to make her think eating cereal and melon all day for months is normal. I want her to have pride in my body.

I have body issues but I am awed how my body is growing a baby.

Multi Tasking

I just sneezed, farted and the miniscus broke.

Cette une fille

I am having a girl

So now I snore, have aching carpal tunnel and swollen feet.
