the, good, the bad, and the ugly

The Good:

You guyssss! Someone, somewhere, somehow, nominated me for the Circle of Moms Top 25 Baby Journals! As much as I like to be all "popularity contests are lame," I have to admit to you all how touched and flattered I am that anyone thought of me. I'm in the running with pretty much every cool mommy blog I stalk and adore, so making it very far is in the slim-to-none category, so I'm going to pull the "It's an honor just to be nominated!" card and ask you to vote just this one time by clicking the little button below. Thanks :)

The Bad:

Natalie is so, so sick. We've had two nights of near-zero sleep, and the poor little budgie is just barely showing signs of improvement. Her cold has, as usual, led to a double ear infection, so it's on to yet another round of antibiotics and pain management. I feel just terrible for her, she is having such a hard time. I'm breaking every rule in the parenting book today--television, completely broken routine, nutrition practically out the window. If she wants to watch Sesame Street half-asleep in my lap while eating only yogurt melts, well so be it.

The Ugly:

I am going to spare you visuals on this one, but let me assure you that the nights of no sleep have NOT BEEN KIND. I did manage to squeeze in a shower before Mike headed off to work this morning, but was rather depressed to discover that it did ABSOLUTELY NO GOOD.


  1. Oh man, I'm so sorry she's feeling so rough!! I hope she's feeling much much better very soon! When even a magical shower doesn't work, that's sad!!

    I'll vote for you tomorrow :o)

  2. Congratulations on being nominated, Hoo! You've got my vote, and I'm sure many others too :)

  3. In addition to that, you're also ranked #38 in the top baby blogs competition! Woo-hoo! (or should I say Moo-Hoo?)
