Mommy Wants Vodka

…Or A Mail-Order Bride

The Only Thing Better Than A Ninja Is TWO Ninjas.


It appears as though I am in the market for a new highchair, since Alex’s has been summarily destroyed by Captain Destructo himself (also destroyed is his crib).


I guess all that I can say about this crap-tastrophie of a weekend is this: hey, at least we’ve developed our Ninja-Like method of removing toxic wastes.

I managed to not only record a video of my daughter eating real! food! but edit it (or beg and plead with The Daver to do so for me) AND post it to Facebook* and now I am feeling all sorts of accomplished.


*We can be BFF! On FB!

    What a doll! Love the dimple!

    On this weekend last year Hubby was enjoying a week-long business trip to Boston while I was home with two kids and a dog who had some ‘digestive issues’ on my carpet. This year, Hubby is in Las Vegas and I am home with three kids. The dog, however, is digesting just fine (and doing his business outside during the light of day instead of inside in the middle of the night), so I am calling it a good weekend.

I have seen barely dressed men and women whose clothes barely contained body parts not usually displayed on purpose in polite company. I wouldn’t have expected Waterloo to be full of exhibitionists or adults who look in the mirror and say, ‘yes, that is a good look for me.’ And I keep hearing bagpipes…

    Too adorable. Sorry about your weekend. I had a decent Friday. Yesterday, not so great. Especially not great was being woken up at 4 am, not by a child mind you, but by a grown man who would not stop texting me. Men, can’t live with them; can’t legally castrate them.

    Weekend Sucked? Yeah, I second that.

    That pic of Amelia did put a smile on my face though.

    The only thing better than a ninja is a PIRATE ninja because then he kicks ass AND gets the booty! hahahaha…sorry, just watched an Amanda Bynes movie. Doh.

    I wanna see that! She’s still a little young for a full rack of ribs,huh?

    Sorry you had a craptacular weekend! I hope the week goes better for ya!

    YAY for solid foods! Way to go Cinnamon Girl! A video on Facebook?! I’ll have to go check that out! Cuz we ARE BFF’s on FB!

  10. On August 2nd, 2009 at 1:20 pm Inna Says:

    Yeay for being BFF on facebook! The video is awesome. I like how she pre-digests all her food. 🙂

    If you were closer to me, I’d give you homemade baked noms to make you feel better. Alas, you don’t live super close to the Twin Ports and so no noms. Sad.

    But if you ever come through here, I’ll send you home with noms. Check out my FB album of pretty baked deliciousnesses, and I’ll check out Mimi’s vid tomorrow! (Cause my only full internet access is at work – this is being done on my phone)

    That is one CUTE-ASS baby!.

    If there’s an Ikea near you… they have a super cheap highchair that’s great. Like $20 cheap. We bought ours in probably 2005, and it’s still goin’.

    Just thought I’d give ya that tip. Because that’s what BFFs do.

    That is the face of one happy little girl! Adorable! Plus, holy hell, how is it possible she’s old enough already for solid food?! I ask that as the mother who was so clueless with her first born child that he was nearly a year before we realized (and only after someone asked “So, how does he like table food?”) that maybe we should start feeding him some. Apparently teeth are not just for biting skin! Who knew!?

    Well, everyone but me, I guess, including those who have never had children.

  14. On August 2nd, 2009 at 2:05 pm Mel Says:

    She is precious and so freakin happy!!!

  15. On August 2nd, 2009 at 4:53 pm Leadia Jarvis Says:

    Love the angle on the photo. Very cute! She’s conquered solids, now….the universe!
    My weekend was suckbag too. I’m just counting the hours until I can put the kids to bed. We should have gotten together and bitched.

  16. On August 2nd, 2009 at 6:20 pm Stesha Says:

    Oh, that’s what their calling Saturday and Sunday now. The weekend. I might try that sometimes:)

    Cute kid!

    Hugs and Mocha,

  17. On August 2nd, 2009 at 7:51 pm Kristina Says:

    What a happy, beautiful little girl. I can’t wait to hear the tale of Captain Destructo.

  18. On August 2nd, 2009 at 7:02 pm Jennifer Says:

    Do you have any spare vodka this weekend? They don’t sell strong liquor on Sundays here in the “Bible Belt.” We can get together and see who comes out on top in the “My weekend sucked more than your weekend” contest.

    BTW, my 3 year old got 7 stitches at midnight last night in the ER. I win.

  19. On August 2nd, 2009 at 7:18 pm Lisa Says:

    OUCH – I think that picture just made me ovulate! STOP harassing me with all that cuteness – hubby says we are done having babies and you flaunt that beauty in front of me. Have you no shame? Mean, mean Aunt Becky.

    I need to figure out how to edit videos. It never fails that I’ll be in the middle of taking a cute video of Jackson crawling or laughing or whatever, and my husband will just start screaming FUCK! in the background. He thinks it’s funny. His mother doesn’t.

  21. On August 2nd, 2009 at 8:31 pm Kristin Says:

    I had a great Saturday and Sunday totally kicked my ass. Raging, nausea inducing migraines tend to cast a pall over everything.

    What program did you use to edit your video?

  22. On August 2nd, 2009 at 10:18 pm mountainmomma18 Says:

    I would totally love to be your BFF, but since I blog not under my real name i will have to settle with being blogging Bff’s, but I bet the video is cool.

    Hoo-ray for solid food! And, as for the high chair–get a space saver (fisher price). It straps onto a normal chair and then turns into a booster. And, it’s not very expensive. Here’s the link

    I swear they didn’t pay me to do this.

  24. On August 3rd, 2009 at 6:33 am harrytimes Says:

    My weekends have been a huge pain in the ass lately– we end up snarking at each other and the kids and saying stupid things like “I thought we were supposed to relax.” Also, we just replaced high chairs with plastic booster chars, and we have saved like 8 hour a week of cleaning food off the high chair time

  25. On August 3rd, 2009 at 7:47 am Leah Says:

    She is adorable!! I second the suggestion of Ikea, and will add in craigslist. I’m also dying to know what you used to edit the video. I need this bad!

  26. On August 3rd, 2009 at 7:47 am Kerrie Says:

    I bet I have an uglier light fixture than you…We should have a contest. oohhh…a blog contest. Let’s post pictures of the ugly shit in our house! What great fun! 🙂

  27. On August 3rd, 2009 at 8:01 am sharon Says:

    what an ADORABLE pic!!!

  28. On August 3rd, 2009 at 9:10 am Kristi Stevens Says:

    We had a Destructo in my house growing up (aka youngest brother). There was nothing this child did not take apart or destroy trying. Now, he’s 30, an attorney, and all around great guy. Thank God my dad understood our Destructo’s actions were generated by a curious mind – because of this understanding he was encouraged more than he was disciplined (and boy, was he disciplined).

  29. On August 3rd, 2009 at 8:17 am lady lemon Says:

    Wha? You better post that shit over here too!! I wanna see baby Mimi in action!

  30. On August 3rd, 2009 at 8:18 am Brooke Says:

    Amelia is so.stinking.cute!!! And I totally had a way ugly light fixture in Sushi Boy and I’s bedroom at the house we just moved into and I’m moving out of. To top it off, it was majorly, revoltingly off center. Rediculous!

  31. On August 3rd, 2009 at 8:50 am Jenn Says:

    She is too adorable.

  32. On August 3rd, 2009 at 10:13 am Mrs Soup Says:

    She is so freakin adorable. Love the turtle face.

    And be careful, she is going to totally take over the world….we need to find a highchair too….someday….

  33. On August 3rd, 2009 at 10:51 am Kristine Says:

    Yay for solid food!

  34. On August 3rd, 2009 at 1:36 pm ZDub Says:

    1. I love ninjas.

    2. I love your baby.

  35. On August 4th, 2009 at 6:36 am mumma boo Says:

    Must.kiss.those.cheeks. NOW!

    Solid food? Way to go, Amelia! Today – strained peaches. Tomorrow – steak tips with peach margaritas.

  36. On August 4th, 2009 at 8:25 am Badass Geek Says:

    Solid foods?

    She’s one step ahead of me, then.

  37. On August 4th, 2009 at 11:13 am Kendra Says:

    So cute! Sorry to hear about the lousy weekend, but I’m taking the IKEA tip; we have two largely ruined high chairs (the seats are held togeher with a combination of packing and duct tape–classy).

    I hope your week improves!

  38. On August 5th, 2009 at 1:35 pm Ginger Magnolia Says:

    Oh man, just catching up finally (I’ve missed my blogs). Those dimples are keeey-ute! Now I’ll go stalk you on facebook to see your video. I mean, when I’m done reading the other four billion blogs I’ve missed.
