Wiggles took the directive to “spring forward” this past weekend literally.

His new favorite thing is the Jumperoo.


PS: Guess who has a photo credit on Tru TV’s website?

PPS: I realize that not everyone finds my kid as enthralling as I do.  If you’re just here for the yarn, don’t worry, I’m cooking up a little something that I hope to post about soon.

MommaBliss is here to help with Wiggles for a few weeks.  She was cleaning out the freezer and came across some mystery items.

MommaBliss: What’s this?

Me: Shredded yellow squash.

MommaBliss: And this?

Me: Placenta.

MommaBliss: . . .

Why yes, I do have plastic bag full of placenta in my freezer.  Why do you ask?

I’m a bit embarrassed to admit it, but our cat has a drug problem. Her drug of choice? Chlorine. Yes, our cat huffs bleach. And licks it if she gets the chance. Yeah, she’s a freak. We know this and are always careful to shut her out of any room where we’re using bleach as a cleaning product. Sometimes though, we can’t keep her away from it. This is what happened after CodeMonkey and I got back from swimming the other night.

It’s probably best that she doesn’t have much of a brain to damage.

CodeMonkey: Did we wake you up this morning?

Me: Nooo . . .

CodeMonkey: Oh good.  I closed the bedroom door before the police officer got here.

Me: Wha . . .????

Um, yeah.  Apparently CodeMonkey witnessed some vandalism early this morning and had to give a statement to the police.  The things I miss when I’m sleeping.

Sooo . . . if you have two identical plastic containers in your refrigerator, one containing half a red onion and one containing half a red apple, be very careful which container you grab when packing your lunch in the morning.

It may have also been a somewhat silly Sunday.

My lovely assistant is modeling a collar.  We may need a bit of clarification on how exactly it should be worn.
