BuenoBaby's Blog – August 2010 Archive (14)

I wet myself, and six people on Facebook "Liked" it



I’d forgotten how much easier a summer without a child in diapers can be. I imagine this also applies to diaper wearing adults, as well. Not trying to deny any one particular groups’ hardships here, I just don’t know any diaper wearing adults. As far as I know, my friends and family all enjoy control of their bladders and colons. And chances are when one of them becomes incontinent, they’ll update their Facebook profile status to...… Continue

So my kid needs a real estate attorney



Whitney starts kindergarten next week, and in preparation for the big day the kindergartners practiced riding the bus, with a parent, to and from school. So yesterday morning, Whitney and I climbed on the bus and road to her new school where we met her teachers, but more importantly for Whitney, she got to fill her cubby with school supplies. Her own little piece of real estate. I think I’ll start telling people my four year old successfully… Continue

You remember my very important friend Jaime?



My friend who does really gracious things like share his 30% off Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Banana Republic Factory Store and Gap Outlet coupons with us? Yes, THAT Jaime! How could you have forgotten?



Anyway, Jaime works at Gap Inc. doing God’s work, people. Lifting and squeezing the tushies of women across this great land of ours.… Continue

From Dallas with Love...and adorable bracelets!



Lexi just got back from Dallas where she spent a week and a half with her Opa and Oma. If you have someone who’s offering to take your preteen for an extended period of time, I highly encourage you to take them up on that offer. As in, drop whatever, whoever it is you're doing and pack a suitcase stat! You don't want to miss the window on that kind of offer!



Oma sent these bottle-cap bracelets… Continue

My outfit is way too cute for this



Several weeks ago, Ben and I attended a conference for web developers, even though I’m not a web developer myself. I'm a web designer, yes, but not a developer. They may sound similar but they’re not, and confusing those two roles would be like asking the hospital janitor [the one mopping your insides off the birthing room floor] whether, or not, your newborn is taking enough areola into her mouth when she latches on. Wrong man for the job, and… Continue

Twelve months of drivel and counting! All my mastheads are now up...you can all get back to the business of your lives again.

When we redesigned BuenoBaby earlier this spring, I had every intention to gather up all The Mastheads into one special place, which they could call their own. A place where they could stretch-out, scratch and watch the game. Sure, they may not share the same duties, and fulfill the same obligations, as their siblings, The Blog Posts, but that doesn’t mean I love them any less. Mastheads, you know I love you, even if I don’t say it…

A list of the sh*# my kids break [Alternate title: This is why we can’t have nice things]

Many years ago, I was helping my dad clean out some portion of his hoarding house when he picked-up a black trash bag and began carefully placing crystal goblets into the bottom of the bag. And I may, or may not, have said, “You shouldn’t have nice things.” O.K. this was a very true disrespectful thing to say, and I probably deserved a time out. I wish I hadn’t said that to my dad. I wish… Continue

I want to wear this when I meet my kids' new teachers



In the next couple of weeks, we’ll be meeting with Lexi and Whitney’s new teachers. I’ve been trying to figure out what I should wear until I saw this tee shirt at the airport and was all YES, that’s it! ....Continue…

O.K., now the mosquitoes are just being...



Most evenings, Ben and I try to squeeze in a little chunk of time together before preparing dinner. Although, referring to it as a ‘chunk’ of time might be overreaching. Chip, fragment, speck of dust floating in the far reaching, outer corners of the universe amount of time is probably more accurate.

Anyway, in those illicit moments alone…

I'm available to babysit your kids. You have the Spice Channel, right?

We babysat my nephew, Max, and niece, Mia, so that my brother, and his wife, could go out and eat ONE...DAMN...MEAL...sitting together from start to finish. Burp.



I’ll be honest, the first twenty minutes or so alone with all four kids felt like someone released a pillow case of ferrets into my shower while I was shaving the backs of my knees.…

For those of us missing Blogher

As many of you already know, I’m a tweeter. I’m also a bit lactose intolerant, but that’s for another day. I know, I know and now you’re all, “What?! She’s just teasing us with this mention of her lactose intolerance? Elaborate woman!” Talk about stringing you along! Next thing you know, I’ll casually mention I’m pregnant. Oh my God Ben just read that and did a mini-throw up in his mouth. I am not pregnant.



Anyhow, I’m on the Twitter last… Continue

I live in a house with a flag pole in the front yard. Yes, people, we’re living the dream...



Yesterday’s wildlife sighting tally: three deer, four wild turkeys and two, TWO owls! I grew up in these here parts, and I never remember seeing more than a field of cows back in my day. Of course those cows are long gone. Their grazing pastures replaced with partially completed subdivisions [fuck yeah, real estate market!], and I presume those cows have moved on to other meals...like my girls’ McDonald’s Happy Meals.…

I don't even know what I'm talking about



Lexi’s been looking for the perfect pair of sunglasses since the snow melted off our deck back in May. [O.K. fine I’m over-exaggerating, it melted way, way back in April.] Anyway, we found these glasses a couple of weeks ago at one of those mall kiosks, although I can’t say I’ve ever purchased anything at one of those kiosks before. Not that there’s anything wrong with those kiosks, just that I haven’t had a need for hair extensions or cell phone… Continue

Do you need a romantic weekend away? THEN DON'T...

We’re back...less a couple layers of skin off our butts, but we're back! We spent a little time in the Wisconsin Dells this last weekend sloshing and screaming our way down miles of over-sized plumbing. But seriously, I enjoy a good water slide. Also, people watching half-naked-dimple-thighed-dolphin-tattooed-folks is worth a day spent tucking errant hairs back into my bikini bottoms.…
