Diego Goldberg's family takes a portrait every June 17. What I like most is the Dad's style never changes. He looks the same. It makes me think there must be a Dad gene that says: Okay! This is my look! Never going to change it. EVER!


I love this face. It makes me laugh every time. In fact, just looking at these makes me smile.

If you do not like poop, do not read this

Yohboh changed a diaper today that whole edamame in them. I actually came from another room to investigate.

A moment in parenthood

So today Ava took a dump that was the heaviest dump ever. It was so heavy that I made Yohboh hold it to feel how heavy it was.

I made my husband hold a bag of feces. And he held it.

Your kid

I have always liked kids. I have always liked babies. When you have your own kid, it's not about like anymore. Its about loving more than you ever thought you would.

Ava had morning breath after her nap yesterday. She normally does not because of neh neh.

Who is more fuckable?

Tom Brady or Leonardo DiCaprio?

Yohboh says Tom Brady.

I say Leonardo DiCaprio.

What is your opinion?

Good Advertisements

I find these funny. No men want to see other men in underwear. So put women in them! When in doubt, show boobies!

Parent's Day

Today is Parent's Day.

How DUMB is this day? The only way I found it was surfing on Wikipedia. There are no cards for this day. What a waste of legislation this was.

Daddy's Girl

Since I have not been nursing, Ava is been very much Daddy's girl this week. It is so cute to see her climb into Yohboh's lap with a book and he reads it to her. She also climbs on his arm to do horsey.

Still Grumpy

I am happy most of the time!

But when I am grumpy WATCH OUT!

NehNeh free for five days.

I'm coming out!

So I have been an avid reader of flogs. For those of you not aware in the blogosphere, those are food blogs.

So I started one. I know, I know I blog enough here. But I want a place where I can put my thoughts on food in one place. Also, I also wanted a centralized location for a list of all the food blogs I read. So here is Beef and Chocolate. Cute name, yes? It is about Yohboh and Minjenah's favorite foods. I try to put recipes up here too but most of time, I am a fly by the seat of my pants girl except when it comes to baking. Baking is like chemistry.

So if you want to know what I had for dinner, or lunch or snack on--come visit!

Ava is a toddler

Ava is not taking to the no neh neh days. She cries a lot now at she is not comforted with what she wants. I think she was a neh neh holic.

My Toddler and her Daddy

So if you have not figured out by my ranty cabbage posts, I am in the PAINFUL process of weaning. It sucks. My boobs hurt like they are filled to the brim with sun baked pebbles. And I leak milk everywhere. And Ava is PISSED!

My Toddler and Yohboh
Daddy pleased that his boobies will be back and Ava crying because her boobies are leaving.

Nerd Dating

So I found this really funny but I actually understood quantum mechanics at one point in my life. Isn't that appalling? That there is a smarter version of yourself in your past.

I was thinking

People need to grill on a float.

Looking for poo

It rained here. A branch from a tree fell and I think hit the house and the power went out. Ava was alarmed but okay with it. Lola started FREAK out then Ava started to freak out. Ava is a freak out by association. Like if she hears a baby in the store crying, she thinks "Oh Shit I should cry too" and does so. Lola then takes a dump on the floor. I at first think it is the baby and go and change her but it is not. By process of elimination, I realize it is the dog. So then I have to take a FLASHLIGHT to find the poop. Ava is very excited by this flashlight and wants to take it. So when I find the poop, I give the flashlight to Ava so I can clean it up. But Ava no longer wants what Mama has given her. Ava wants what Mama is playing with. So I have to hold my child off while I pick up dog poo.

Yeah, I know all of you are so jealous of my glamorous life right now.

Anybody seen any poo?


My tits hurt.

Sage Tea

Sage Tea is yucky. Yohboh is sweet to make it for me.

Losing the fat rolls

Ava is down to only one fat roll. I know this is weird, but it makes me so sad.


Thoughts on cabbage

Cold cabbage leaves feel nice on my tits.

Hot cabbage smells like poop.

Weed Butter

Sometimes, you just can't make this up.

Child Proofing Be Damned

Ava pulled off the little guards I had put on the outlets. About a 100 times.

Scrunchy Face

After bath snuggles SCRUNCHY FACE
I know this is blurry, but why does this face make me laugh so much?

We had N, H, and B over for beef and chocolate. Beef and Chocolate should be the name of a restaurant.

One Year Ago Today

Bad TV

I am addicted to bad TV. Like so bad, I cannot admit to myself I watch it. Like I love Money. Oh my God, it is so bad. I also think that Hoopz looks like Stacey Dash. But anyway, the midget got eliminated first. I don't think that sentence has ever crossed my mind but I did like it.

I am a big reader. I read a lot, as you can tell from my large magazine list. Also I read a lot of books.

Toddler reading
I think Ava is getting into reading too.

A year ago today


My 3! squared birthday

Today is my three factorial squared birthday. If you know what that means, you are a dork too. We ate Italian.

The yummy salad. I forgot to take other pictures of the food.

Wednesday, July 16, 2008


Yohboh is painting. He is painting the dining room and kitchen and living room in haze. It is a color from Behr. He has even removed wallpaper. I totally want to jump his ass.

Is my kid looking older?

Insomnia Sadness

From Kottke

So this photo made me so sad. If you look at the thumbnails, you will see more of these photos. There is also an article and it made me sadder.

I have no insight about this, just that this is not the only sad story from this war.

Ava likes white

Crayon joy
The white crayon is cool.

Crayon joy
It's like a magic crayon because not everyone can see it.

White top hat
White plastics hats are cool.

For Stinky

My sister complained that she did not have the energy to go through over 8000 pictures that are on my flickr to find the videos. So I have tagged the videos veedeeoh. You are welcome Stinky.

Big Girl Underwear

I purchased big girl underwear for Ava today. I have to say I was surprised but the large selection available. There are full briefs, boy shorts, bikini briefs and hi-cut briefs.

Ava got full on briefs.

Great Houdini

Who names these things?


Eric Ripert has a blog.

Local Restaurant owner Taka has a blog.
