Blue face

Ava had one mini M and M and she missed her mouth.

Sometimes, Ava does not want her picture taken.


What's wrong Mommy?

Ava asked me this week: What's wrong Mommy?

Vibram Five Fingers

Via D Listed.

The typical human foot is an anatomical marvel of evolution with 26 bones, 33 muscles and hundreds of sensory receptors, tendons and ligaments. Like the rest of the body, to keep our feet healthy, they need to be stimulated and exercised.

That’s why we recommend wearing FiveFingers for exercise, play, and for fun. Stimulating the muscles in your feet and lower legs will not only make you stronger and healthier, it improves your balance, agility and proprioception.

Busy weekend

Ava spent the day with her Ga Ga while we went to a baseball game. So in the last four days, we went to two baseball games, had people over for dinner and went to a party. No wonder I am so tired.

This is how Ava eats string cheese.

Brilliant Conversation

Yohboh: I like this baseball channel
Hondu: Yeah, it's good.
Yohboh: They show a lot of baseball on the baseball channel.

Party Animal

Ava went with us to a party. Yohboh was the reason we went home. Ava and I were raring to go.

A visitation of cuteness

Today, little D. came over.


Ava liked him.

Actual Conversation between myself and yohboh

News on Radio:Michael Jackson is dead at fifty.

Minjenah: Who will raise his children?
Yohboh, completely straightlaced: Eddie Murphy.
Minjenah: What?
Yohboh: They know each other, right?

One year ago today

Eating kimbop

Two years ago today

That fat roll on her leg just gets me.


Ava went to the Yankees game with us tonight.



She likes baseball.

And she played baseball with Daddy:

She really likes baseball.

Father's Day this year

This is a year's worth of pictures of Ava and her daddy.

And here they are today.



It is 12:41 at night. And 82 degrees with 67 percent humidity. The AC just kicked in.

First Swimming Lesson

Ava went to her first swimming lesson. She missed her first two because she was sick. She loved it. Her favorite was CHOO CHOO.


Friday, June 19, 2009

Out to Dinner

Ava went out to dinner. It was Mexican.


She really likes Mexican.

I think I am getting sick again!

One Year Ago Today

Reading Books

Ava tries to juggle


More Griping about heat

It is really hot today! It is another No Pant Day.

Tuesday, June 16, 2009


It was hot today.

Ava likes to watch a movie in the Big Bed.



Whatever happened to acting appropriately? I was watching The Real Housewives of New Jersey and was thinking that acting inappropriately will garner you lots of attention. Acting like you have some sense does not get you a French Chateau house with onyx.

No Pant Tuesday

Today, Ava and I decided that pants were unneccessary. It is best to do a No Pant Day with a long T shirt.

Ava has discovered that she can extract boogers OUT OF HER OWN NOSE. And she is very reluctant to give them up.



Yohboh loves the movie Redline. It has no decapitation or boobies, but it is about car racing. It is an awful film.

Here are some more movies that yohboh will watch every time:
Anything with Rob Schnieder except to European Gigolo
Starship Troopers
Anything with boobies, including foreign film with subtitles like Swimming Pool

Learning Curve

Mental note: Do not feed ice cream to your child one hour before bedtime. Unless you want bedtime to be pushed back by a bit.


Saturday, June 13, 2009


Ava loves Totoro. She pretends to find acorns throughout the house. She makes the Totoro noises. This makes me happy since I love this movie too.


Two years ago today

Party Girl

Ava was out until 12:30!


Thursday, June 11, 2009


Ava gets sick of pictures.

Too Loud

Ava told me I was too loud today. :)


Everyone is a critic!

Mom, my pigtails are uneven.

Spiderman Kisses and sugary snot

So this morning, I conked out in front of the TV after I took my medicine. Ava took advantage of this and got a hold of a sugar canister. When I woke up, I immediately went to find her. She was in the kitchen, her face covered in a mixture of sugar and snot.

This is yohboh giving her spiderman kisses.


This is her feeling better.

Monday, June 08, 2009


It is now day FOUR of Summer Sick 2009. I even went to the doctor. UGH! I think I smell like a sick person. Always nice. Ava has a smoker's hack. Yeah, she sounds like Brenda Vacarro.


Ava also really likes her medicine. Her toes dance when she is about to get it.

Sunday, June 07, 2009


Ava said today, Medicine delicious! and I LOVE medicine.


She cries sometimes when she coughs though. Because her throat hurts. :(

Our whole sickly crew

So Ava is better but she is just not her bouncy toddler self.

Yohboh is a little sick (this is noteworthy because he is NEVER sick) and I feel like I have eaten a bottle full of razorblades.


Ava missed her first swimming lesson today.

Still Sick

So all three of us are sick.

Ava was active this evening so that was good.


And thank God for bubble gum flavored antobiotics.

Thursday, June 04, 2009

What's going to work? TEAM WORK

Wonderpets is a new favorite that Ava likes.

I like that they reward themselves with celery. I would reward myself with cookies.

Also, their theme song is catchy.

First Ear Infection

I took Ava to the doctor because she kept pulling at her ear. I had to get a precription filled and I hollered at the pharmacist to give my sick kid her medicine. I still had to wait two hours to get bubble gum flavored medicine.


Oh and I am sick too.


Wednesday, June 03, 2009

New dress and sunglasses and shoes

Ava has a bit of a fever.




People I think look alike

Zac Efron and Jared Leto, specifically the Jordan Catalano years. Oddly, I never found this type attractive. You know, short and lame.


Sometimes Ava dances with her eyes closed. You know, to feel the music.

When did Jon and Kate plus 8 become tabloid worthy? When did J. lo become untabloid worthy? And Britney Spears? And Bennifer 2?

I used to watch Jon and Kate plus 8 avidly. Watching two year olds eat pancakes is just enjoyable. I stopped watching it because of Chuck. Then I hear about the parents divorcing and what not. I feel badly for the children.


Ava gets bags under her eyes from eating too much corn or wheat. DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY FOODS CONTAIN CORN OR WHEAT?


E=mc squared

If matter is neither created nor destroyed, where do all my toddler's socks go?

Pleasantly Hot

It is pleasantly hot now. This means that I got tired in the afternoon.

Ava did the uberscrunchy face.

Also had book club. Fun!
