Toddlers, Tiaras and Tom Hanks

Basic cable isn’t known for having the highest standards and in my opinion TLC’s Toddlers and Tiaras is really one of the lows.  Of course, it’s completely fascinating if you ever get sucked into watching – kind of like pictures of Britney Spears going shoeless into gas station bathrooms.  This video of Tom Hanks on Jimmy Kimmel Live completely nails everything that’s wrong about the whole concept of T&T.


Unfathomably Awesome!

Seriously, this is THE best birthday cake EVER!!!

Thanks to Cake Wrecks for making sure Wreckies everywhere saw this!

Alien Invasion!

I have a two-year old son.  He really likes the alien guys from the Toy Story movies.  This morning, I walked past my daughters’ room and saw this.

Twenty minutes or so later I happened past the same doorway and discovered they had fallen into marching formation.

The boy has a way with composition, don’t you think?

Things I Love: Warm Beds are Priceless

I have three kids.  Kids often need their moms at night.  Between my three, I’m up with one or the other of them at least once most nights.  I’m yanked from my cozy, comfortable bed so I can go shiver while I comfort a little person who’s fallen out of bed or had a nightmare.  Even when I’m only with the child for a few minutes, I’m always frozen by the time I get back to my own bed.  Getting back into bed used to be almost as uncomfortable as getting out because the bed cooled and the sheets were positively cold when I returned to them.  Then, we bought a Tempur-Pedic bed and let me tell you, it has become my bit of luxury in the night.  The Tempur material holds heat, so it’s still the welcoming and snug when I return.  Being able to climb back into a still warm bed is priceless.  Bless you Tempur-Pedic.

Never Again

My middle child needs a bribe before she’ll agree to a flu shot.  This year she chose a barrel of gum balls.  Three weeks later, she’s all but forgotten about them and my teeth ache from all the sugar and yet I’m still chewing.  Please, save me from the bubble gum!


So pretty. So sweet. So evil.
