A couple of years ago one of my mothers-in-law (yes - I'm lucky enough to have two) was ahead of the techno times - at least for Central Texas - when she rocked up at the lake house with her slimline iPad for reading her e-books on.
The rest of the family - mainly her bratty brother-in-law - nicknamed it her 'Maxi'-pad. Guffaw! Very clever don't you think?
Now they've all got their own 'Maxi'-pads. Including my hubs.
I don't need one of those kinds of 'Maxi'-pads - I've got my lovely new laptop thank you very much.
Yesterday however, an anonymous parcel arrived - we guess for Go Momma's birthday (admittedly my first thought is always nail-bomb! I saw it happen once on Crime Watch UK... that s**t is hard to erase!)
Go Momma's fancy new maxi-pad
A good guess - it being a gift for Go Momma and not a nail bomb - seeing as how it turned out to be a shiny purple note pad, for writing down my blog ideas and stories, no doubt. 
Yesterday's blog mentioned the word 'gilded' meaning gold leafed - what a coincidence? My new shiny 'pad' has gilded pages. With a fancy shiny pen to go with it. 
It's quite possibly way too swanky for this coffee spilling, note scribbling disorganized doodling blogger Mommy. Its classy sleek look might actually inspire a classier tone to my blogging...... haha. Not likely!
Authentic Go Momma scribblings 
I'll just have to practice some cursive handwriting, to make my scribbling worthy of my fancy 'pad'.
But I love it! I'm going to carry it around with me in my handbag, wherever I go - just like a real Maxi-pad. There's definitely room in there considering this non-stop preggo/breast feeding machine will have no use for a 'jam sandwich' anytime soon.... 
Oh wait.... Ugh, I'm forgetting about lochia.... Bring on the Mamma Jamma blob hammocks!
Incidentally after Googling for a little appropriate image to link to this blog I stumbled across this:
Blog image: Momma Told Me
A genuine purple (well OK - hot pink) washable Maxi-pad! I've never seen these before, and I can't decide yet if I think it's ingenious or just friggin' foul! I'll just have to give it a go to know for sure! Perhaps I'll order a few for my birthday..
It really gives a literal meaning to 'being on the rag'! 
What d'ya reckon ladies? Reusable diapers have become super trendy over the last year or so - what do we think to reusable sanitary towels?
