Evens Out

Chupa woke me up the other day by screaming her head off. Very alarming.

Today she woke me up with giggling. Much nicer.

Kidlet told me today, "I could not decide on the activity today."


I always wondered where car dealers got the big ass bow.

Bad Movies

I have now watched three of the Twilight movies.

They are really really bad.

Laughably, worthy of deep parody bad. The animated wolves act better than their human counterparts.

But I am firmly Team Jacob.

Better six pack.

Also, I found this fascinating entry that says that Bella and Edward were in an abusive relationship.

Yohboh and I had dinner at one of his favorite restaurants.

It was nice to have a date with Yohboh.

San Toki

Chupa's default song I sing is San Toki, which means mountain rabbit. I like this version.

The beginnings of a smile


Happiness is a free movie weekend on the premium channels while I nurse.

There are so many movies I have not seen.

Oh, and I am nursing. So guess how I typed this?

Uber Tired

Kidlet woke me waaay too early this morning.

Forever Lazy

The Forever Lazy is my new favorite infomercial. I mean, why buy sweats when you can buy an adult onesie?

On the sofa

Chupa is looking around on the sofa. She is thinking the deep thoughts.

Kidlet begged me to let her sleep on the sofa.

Slowing Down

When you have an infant, it really does take all day to do a load of laundry.

I am typing this one handed because I am nursing.

Observations from a four year old

Mommy, you don't dream about pooping.

Thanksgiving week

Kidlet made this in school. That is her pilgrim hat and a Native American vest.

Pre Thanksgiving

We had our annual Pre Thanksgiving feast. I was really not involved. Because I have a six week old. Really, what kind of person would expect anything from a mother of a six week old? Fortunately, I have very nice friends who were just happy to see the baby.

I will post pictures later.


Chupa puked on me. I showed yohboh and he went to sleep.

Chupa is getting chubby. I like it.

Where's Kidlet?

It takes me a while to find kidlet in her bed sometimes.

Things I don't get

Why is Kim Kardashian famous?

Why would anyone want to buy anything she sells?

Chupa had a projectile vomit out of one nostril today that traveled over six feet.

It was gross and astonishing at the same time.


Picture 329

I love Chupa's look of alarm.

The Smith Family

Picture 320


I had to go to the doctor today. Traffic was horrible on the way home. I was away from the baby for more than two hours. Chupa has been ON me ever since.

Sweet Sister Things

Kidlet looks for Chupa as soon as she gets home to give her hugs and kisses.

Chupa loves to listen to Kidlet singing.

More Sleeping and Cleaning

Chupa has a bit of baby acne.

Kidlet and I cleaned out her toys. Because I have a feeling Santa may have things to contribute to the toy collection.

Picture Catch Up

So when you have a second child, it takes a while to get your rhythm. I have taken pictures but have been too tired to post them.

Yohboh's awesome

Yohboh got me a slice of very chocolate cake because I had a bad day.

Not so stupid dog

Lola came back.

Bad Morning

I got four hours of sleep last night, which is a lot for this week.

I wake up with my oldest child putting a shoe on my face because she wanted me to put it on her. She had already dressed herself in her pajamas because it is pajama day. She is SUPER excited.

I make her breakfast.

Kidlet eats it.

The baby pukes on me.

I change my shirt.

I did kidlet's hair.  I am baffled by curly hair.  It takes a long time to brush.

The baby pukes again.

I change my shirt.

My left boob is leaking milk. I debate changing my shirt. Because really, the baby will puke on me again.

Kidlet is running around with her bookbag and lunch. I tell her not to do it because she will forget where she puts them.

The dog gets out and is now running the neighborhood.

GaGa gets here.

Kidlet cannot find her bookbag and lunch.

I start looking for them.

Kidlet is in hysterics.


GaGa finds them and then they leave.

I nurse the baby with my leaky boob.

GaGa calls to let my know that she sees the dog.  Do I want her to look for the dog?

While I am on the phone, the baby pukes.  Baby is crying because she mainly pukes on herself.

I tell GaGa that Lola will come back (even though I am unsure that Lola will).  I get off the phone.

I use my shirt to clean most of the vomit off the baby.  I congratulate myself for not changing shirts because she did puke again.  I change her clothes and change her diaper.  I do a more thorough washing of the baby and get all the puke out of her fat folds in her neck.

I put on a clean shirt.

Baby poops.

I change the diaper.

Baby does her hungry cry.

I nurse her.

Baby pukes on me and then falls asleep.

I am currently doing laundry because guess what?  Out of clean shirts.

That's my girl

Kidlet: Q bert and Pac Man pushed me and tried to rip my dress.

Minjenah: Really? Did you tell your teacher?

Kidlet: Yeah, I told them they were little bitches and then I told my teacher.


Honesty and Integrity

I have actively disliked Joe Paterno for years.

I feel that people who preach about honesty and integrity should shut the fuck up and practice honesty and integrity.

And for the record, if you know someone is a rapist you shout it from the hills and fire that asshole and have the cops handle it. And you do not sit on it, for nine years, so you can have the highest win record in the history of college football. Because looking the other way is not only wrong, it makes you culpable.

People should stop talking and start doing.

Drama at Pre School

Kidlet: Finn wants to marry me and Naietza.

Minjenah: Oh really?

Kidlet: William told him he had to decide because Finn can't marry both of us.

Minjenah: William is right.

Kidlet: William wants to marry Finn but that is not how it works.

El Chupacabra is doing this three am projectile vomit thing for the past few nights.

I have had crusty hair and changed shirts more than underwear.

It is getting a bit old.

I ordered some Disney jammies for kidlet. Most of them were princess ones but I really like these.

What do you have

What do you have when you have two green balls in your hand?

Kermit's undivided attention.

Trying to get back to normal

Sometimes I wonder when I will get back to me.

Being an invalid blows.

One Month Ago

Chupa is one month old.

Before she poops, she crosses her eyes.

She sneezes loudly, like a grown up.

She makes snarfy noises before she eats.


Sleep deprivation makes time fly.

Snap Rant Part Deux

In the last four years the snap technology has not improved.

Seriously people?

In the last four years, they have introduced the Iphone and IPAD. GPS is the norm. Osama Bin Laden is dead. We have a BLACK president.

Thank You

My sister's in laws sent kidlet and Chupa some lovely gifts. Aren't they so kind?

Random Mommy Thought

The best stain remover for infant clothes is baby shampoo.


Because it
1) is effective
2) will not irritate baby skin
3) you (should) already have it

Sleep deprived minjenah's brain thinks she is Heloise or something.
