The kidlet was on a bar and flipped over. She said, "Mommy! Did you see me?"

More on the idiot tire slasher

Tire slasher's wife gives me eat shit and die looks when she walks her dog.

Last year she had the audacity to ask me for veggies from my garden. Your husband has been destroying my friend's property and tried to STAB my husband and you wanted free garden veggies?

I remember last year when she asked and the way she asked was really condescending. I told her she could pick as many as she wanted. In the same tone of bitch.

Obviously, a woman who drinks herself to sleep rather than deal with the drunken high mess that is her husband did not pick a single cherry tomato or any other veggie for that matter.

It would be sad but that is her shit, let her make a bed out of it and sleep off her drunk.

Funny Face

Picture 038


I had a doctor's appointment this morning at ten am. The office called me at 8:45 AM when I had keys in my hand to tell me they had to cancel. Apparently, someone had a stomach bug. This doctor is one I switched to because she is close to yohboh's work and it works better with our insurance. I felt that cancelling so late in the day was really unprofessional.

Did I mention with my previous OB/GYN who I went to for ten years has NEVER cancelled an appointment? I have not been with this one for TEN WEEKS yet.

Lazy Sunday

I am enjoying the lazy days before El Chupa comes and I am an exhausted milk producing mess.

Captain Crunch Chronicles

If you do not know me in real life, I like to coupon. Today I bought a box of Captain Crunch. With the coupon, it came to about 20 cents. I let the kidlet pick out the box she wanted. She picked out OOPS! All Berries. A serving is 32 grams and has 15 grams of sugar. Yes you read that right. The other varieties has 3-6 grams less sugar. The kidlet insisted that she get to eat this cereal for lunch. I actually remember doing this to my mother over Cookie Crisp so I acquiesced due to nostalgia.

It made her tongue blue.

I will be mixing this with bran flakes to make it more healthy.

Sometimes, just driving the kidlet to gymnastics is exhausting.

Ava had FOUR Popsicles at softball. Wonder why she likes going with Daddy to softball.

Little Miss Thing

Ava came into our bed at about five this morning. She had a bad dream. Yohboh got up soon after that and I passed out.

Ava got up, shut the door to our bedroom, snuck into the freezer, got a half gallon of ice cream and a spoon, turned on the TV and sat on the coffee table and proceeded to eat. Yohboh came back inside to see Ava shovel a large spoonful of ice cream and then put the ice cream back.

Why do I find this so funny?

Bad Parenting

Picture 015

Yesterday I ended up taking a three hour nap and Ava played with the Ipad the whole time. Yeah, I suck.

At this stage in pregnancy

I am falling asleep when I breathe.

Being without internet, tv and phone is irritating.


I agree!

Puter Issues

So we have puter issues. As well as cable issues. And phone issues.

Stupid Bundled package.

Tired and hot

We went to a kids birthday party. I am exhausted.

Seriously, going to bed.

Acting like a toddler

Last night Carlos Zambrano really threw poorly against the Atlanta Braves. As opposed to manning up and trying to help his team through the shit he threw, he acted like a two year old and tried to hit Chipper Jones so he could get thrown out. Which he did, and then proceeded to clean out his locker and said he was thinking about retiring. Carlos Zambrano has 18 million on his current contract.

His behavior completely disgusted me. If my daughter acted like that just to get out of a bad situation she created, I WOULD MAKE HER STAY to see this shit storm that she would have had to clean up. I would make her apologize to her teammates for a lackluster performance, as well as to Chipper Jones. And there would be written apologies in each of the major newspapers to apologize to the fans not only in Atlanta but Chicago for acting like a little bitch. And then contribute the amount earned from that game equally to charities in Atlanta and Chicago.

Are you listening Mike Quade and Jim Henry? When someone acts like a two year old, quite clearly they want to be treated like a two year old. Maybe someone should show Zambrano how to use a big boy underwear because quite clearly he has not graduated from Pull Ups.

Passed but failed really

3:00 Well I just got a call and my one hour glucose was too high so I have gestational diabetes. So I failed.

So I passed my glucose test.

Here are my results for no one's interest except myself.

Fasting blood glucose level ≥95 mg/dl —> mine was 80
1 hour blood glucose level ≥180 mg/dl —> mine was 206
2 hour blood glucose level ≥155 mg/dl —> mine was 139
3 hour blood glucose level ≥140 mg/dl —> mine was 111

If you have two that are above range then you have gestational diabetes. I had one. So I do not have gestational diabetes. And the fruit punch drink is nasty but they do put it over ice so it tastes like Hawaiian Punch with an extra cup of sugar on it.

Ipad love is so great that we no longer play four games of crazy eights before bed, kidlet plays four games on the Ipad.


She really likes Angwy Birds


This pregnancy is different because when I was entering my biggest phase the last time, it was winter. I am now in my biggest phase and we are in the dog days of summer.

Last time, I was uncomfortable. Now I am HOT and uncomfortable. Like I have a heat rash SOMEWHERE on my ever expanding body. And I am just HOT. Like do not touch me while I am sleeping because you will incinerate from my wanton heat.

And Chupacabra will not show her face. We had an ultrasound last week and she kept her face hidden. She did that the time before that.

Tired and Grumpy

So I had my three hour glucose test where you are not allowed to eat or drink anything from about ten PM the night before. I got there to take my test at quarter to eight. My test did not actually start until 9:30. So it ended at 12:30. So that means I did not eat or drink anything for 14 hours. On a day that was like 96 degrees.

Did I mention that I normally drink 4.5 liters of water in a 24 hour period?

Mommy, I am going to happy today. Even if you are a bad mommy.

Why am I a bad Mommy?

Because you don't let me do what I want.

That is what good Mommies do.

Well then you are a good mommy.
