Payback

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Doesn't my mother know that Christmas is over? Why does she make me wear a queer sweater on my legs and call it cute? A sweater that has furry little white feet.

What is this store called the GAP that all the mothers love to shop at and rejoice over the sales? A store that makes all the fathers roll their eyes and say,'I don't care how much you saved. How much did you spend?'

It's a good thing I am secure in my masculinity; usually she wraps me in a

and now this.

I have all this photographic evidence of her transgressions. Just give me another 13 years, I am so going to get back at her.

thanks, I think he looks pretty cute too.
And I'll be able to tell him that anonymous people on the internet agreed with me ;-)

I am the mother of 2 girls and a darling baby boy. In an effort to let you know that you are not alone, I admit to putting pink bibs on my poor boy, much to my husband's chagrin. Well, I ask you, Who wants to spend money on more silly bibs, just because the currently owned ones are pink? Not me, that's who.

I say, wrap the boy in pink. It's good for his character.

PS-He IS adorable. And a named person says so!

OK, I'm laughing at your comment. He's a doll! I love little boys. :)

(I was just listening to Godspeed by ... well, by >>lowers voice<< the Dixie Chicks. I know, I just said I don't like pop country, but the Dixie Chicks are different. :) Anyway, it's a lullaby, and it talks about "little man," and oh my but I almost just cried sitting here in my office ...)

This is gonna be a long rambling comment, so forgive me, but I've been wanting to comment for awhile and just now have gotten up the guts to do it.

Firstly, I agree that he's ADORABLE, and charming, and will grow up and make dozens of little girls run screaming on the playground as he chases after them, I bet. ;)

Secondly, I love your blog. I have no earthly idea what it was that made me sit here reading so much of it (Yes, I spent a few hours in the archives, sorry :P), but it's wonderfully honest and cool and ... home-y. And there aren't enough real HOMES in the US nowadays, and I guess it's just nice to be able to feel like a part of one by reading along.

That being said, I have a stupid question or two that will probably come off as judgmental and arsehole-ish, but I swear, I'm sincerely curious.

I'm just curious as to your reasons for having such a big family - not that I don't think it's wonderful, or anything, it's just that the only big families nowadays are for religious reasons, and you just... don't post about things like that. I'm not religious in the slightest, but it's great that some people are, and I know I'm rambling, but I hate offending people, so I'm sorry if I am. I'm just wondering what your reasons are, if you'd be willing to share them. I know people have probably asked you this a zillion times. *shrugs* I'm sorry. I just think it sounds like an incredibly hard thing to do in this society, but it seems so worth it in your life - I love reading your blog.

Oh, yeah. I'm an only child. Maybe that's why I like it so much.

So thank you for letting me peek into what it's like to have a big family, I'm sorry if I offended you... and I'll shut up now.

:)

Oh Sandra, I just went and listened to that song. Oh my goodness it made me cry... both for the lyrics and then the realization that I think I *do* like country music ;-)
