Aaaahhhh Saturday!

Today should have been a day of R and R, but it wasn't. I got a whole lot done! It started with a not so early wake-up call from the boy, 7:30 isn't too bad. But I won't mention the hour he spent awake from 12:30 to 1:30am. Damn Teeth! Anyway we went to the farmers market and got some Organic farm fresh eggs (for you to orgasm over CJ) and peas, the boy loves peas in the pod, and garlic. We got home fed the boy lunch, and put him to bed for a nap. I ran errands during nap time. But TONIGHT was very cool. . .we went to Rib Mountain which is only about 5 miles away and saw a band playing folk music at the top of the mountain. IT was called "music in the clouds" and it was beautiful. We felt guilty for not taking advantage of that beautiful place we live so close to! Anyway now we are home and the boy is asleep, it is mommy and daddy quiet time now! We are off early tomorrow morning to go and pick strawberries hopefully it isn't too hot. It has been hotter that FL temps here lately. Thank God for A/C. Peace Out!

Baba Wawa needs to shut the h*ll up!

For those of you non TV junkies, here is a recap. . .
On The View, Barbara Walters got into the discussion of breastfeeding in public, fine.
She said a woman did it in front of her and it made her uncomfortable, still fine, everyone is entitled to their opinions. ( I have no problem whippin' it out in public, but I do almost always use a blanket unless I am with family or close friends.) But once her statement didn't go over well, she went back on the air and said she never said that and it was her flying partner that was uncomfortable! UUUUGGGHHH fortunately I saw both episodes and it really is irritating to me. So I emailed Her. . .
Dear Barbara,
I watch the show daily and have been following the whole breastfeeding controversy. I too am a breastfeeding mother but I am very aware that everyone is entitled to their own opinions. My problem is that I watched the episode where you talked about the breastfeeding mother making YOU feel uncomfortable and also the episode where you called in and said it was the person you were flying with and that it was all a misunderstanding. This is highly irritating to a faithful viewer. If you are going to express your views on sensitive and controversial topics such as this one, you need to be able to back it up and stand by what you said. It is live TV, however many people tape the show daily and are able to replay what was really said. Go ahead, speak your mind, but don't change it once it doesn't go over. You are losing credibility.

Boobie + Edamame = Pass Out

So today was my LaLeche leage meeting and Mason always has a blast. He goes wacko while we are there. We haven't been in a while because I was on strike. The last two times we went, we be faced with a sick kid a couple days later. I just don't understand how people can be so inconsiderate and bring their sick kid knowing that he is going to get other kids just as sick. . .isn't there an unwritten rule about that? You play group mommies would know that. Anyway, so I'll be crossing my fingers until Friday, I figure if there is no snotty nose in 72hrs, we are in the clear.

After my meeting I met another friend out for lunch at a sushi place. Mason LOVES edamame!! Usually they keep him busy for a while, but not today! He was terrible! He spilled my soy sauce, put his fist in my water so that overflowed, then proceeded to spray it all over my friends kids by splashing in it with his hands. . .never a dull moment! At least my friend thought it was hilarious since her kids are older and she's been through it already. They weren't angels either. Her son dumped a water glass too, right into her purse resting under the table. I am sure the resturant staff and patrons couldn't wait for us to leave!! Deal with it!

So I packed Mason up in the car for our half-hour trip home and he fell asleep in 3 minutes. It was a peaceful ride home. Now his is passed out in his crib, and I have a minute to relax. Aaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!

All About My-Son

Mason was born 6 weeks early- scariest time in my life!! But wow things have changed. Mason is pretty much the naughtiest boy I know. Sometimes I am embarrassed to be around other kids Mason's age because of it. At LaLeche League he scares the other boys by growling in their faces and they run away crying. . .Seriously! He is always the one that moms gasp about and I look to find him standing staight up on a table. He has no fear!
He has become a huge Daddy's boy! Mason and his Dada are so bonded it's unreal. Mason still wakes up during the night for a little milky, and who does he yell for to come and get him, "Da Da! Da Da!" And Mike goes bolting up the stairs for a quick snuggle and to bring him in bed with us for milky. Yes, my 18 month old son is still a nursling. He loves to nurse and I believe that when he no longer needs it, he'll no longer want it. Let's just hope that he doesn't need it still at 5!!
Mason's favorite words are Ahhh-toe: Otto- the dog who takes way too much abuse from the monster.
dah dee: doggie- or anything we happen to see on a leash.
Poo-see: We have NO idea what this means to him?? don't laugh!
Mason's worst time of day is mealtime. He never wants breakfast, he sometimes eats lunch but usually just throws it on the floor , and dinnertime is usually the least painful because his Da da is there to help. He loves anything green! Broccoli, peas, green beans, zucchini. He always eats green first before anything else on his tray. He seems to think the word NO! is hilarious. Hmmm, I must be doing something wrong there!
For what a terror he is and how exausted I am after everyday, he is the best thing that has ever happened in my life. I wouln't change his firey personality for anything!

For you CJ thanks for the idea.

The Draught.

I have been feeling extremely boring lately. Hence the lack of posts. Maybe it is the calm before the writing storm!! OK blah blah. Maybe I should turn it around and ask what my HUGE audience would like to hear about or questions about ME! Fire away!
