conor sews on! UPDATED BRUISING!!

Apparantly, the tradition is that anyone who has held your new rank gets to sock you in your new stripes. Like they're helping tack it on.

here are the beginnings of the bruising...

and now...


the best laid plans...

I'm pretty adamant about teaching the children the correct names for their genitals. So last night in the bath, Violet points to the parts that Finn has that she doesn't. (As she is wont to do). I tell her "That is Finn's penis." We do the whole routine a few times until Violet points at it one more time and announces that it is a bumblebee.


Taking a cue from my husband...Installment #1

  1. I love butter more than a person should.
  2. I have very few memories of childhood.
  3. My brother and I were permanently playing a game called "Brother Nathan, Sister Sarah."
  4. I was in a "borderline religious cult."
  5. I cried over smoking, convinced I was suddenly a bad person.
  6. I have titles for all my ex-boyfriends.
  7. I spent from 19-21 as a completely false person.
  8. I am obsessed with nutrition.
  9. I never believe what I am told by doctors.
  10. I L O V E the Karate Kid movies.
  11. I hate being even a tiny bit drunk.
  12. Right now both of my big toenails are broken, but I don't know how.
  13. I hate porn, and if that makes me unhip it's fine with me.
  14. I entirely believe that male circumcision should be every bit as illegal as female.
  15. I'm always waiting for someone to start a fight with me when I nurse in public.
  16. I am completely over the moon for Finn and I feel guilty that I didn't want a boy.
  17. My dream is to live on a family commune and have a passel of kids.
  18. I'm really cheap.
  19. I've only really had 4 boyfriends as an adult. I've lost touch with one of them. Which is fine.
  20. I waffle on getting more tattoos on a daily basis.
  21. Marriage is incredibly hard, even when I'm the difficult one.
  22. I've decided I'd rather not have friends, than watch people hit their kids.
  23. I'm really enjoying the fact that Finn is WAY ahead of his milestones. I'm that mom now.
  24. That could come from the fact that Violet is so taciturn.
  25. I'd trade my double D's (when I'm not nursing) for a B in a heartbeat.
