So, this is a relatively melodramatic video ad from the SickKids Foundation, which is (if I’m reading their website info/FAQ correctly) a Canadian children’s hospital, research, and fundraising foundation. They have a bunch of other videos, and what looks to be a pretty robust ad campaign going. This particular video is in honor of mothers of … More More Like BADMUTHAS Day, Am I Right?
BOTOX FOR BABIES It’s really fun to call your insurance for preauth and explain why your kid is getting botox. You would think people wouldn’t make jokes, but they do! Ha ha! Baby leg wrinkles, am I right? Oh, fine, I guess it’s covered. Jeez, why would you want to get that for a kid … More The Kid’s EEG Results, Latest
MOVING: AN ELEGY (ALSO, POLITICS) Or should that be a eulogy? Because I am dead from moving, seriously. I don’t think my brain can take any more relocation so will be staying here on the couch (with computer on lap, tea in hand, and dog underfoot) until my brain and insides figure out their proper places … More The Most Smartest
Did you know about Sassy Trump? I did not. I do now, and I am so much happier. I can actually listen to the crappy Trump speeches, and laugh instead of cry. The hairspray ones are hilarious. Clearly this is a matter of national importance that can only be rectified by electing Trump! He will … More PETER SERAFINOWICZ IS THE BEST GUY
UNPUTDOWNABLE YOU Today was one of E’s velcro days. I was hoping they were over, but they pop up every now and then. It came out of nowhere, too — we had a reasonable morning of tummy time, sitting practice, and phone calling. We went to the grocery store and he was a dream in both the Boba … More Velcro and Cake and Uke
Ever since we found out E likes the sound of guitars* A and I have been exploring new ways to entertain him without resorting to all youtube guitar, all the time. My dad found out and, anxious to help, bought us a cheap ukulele — as pictured above, with crumply baby toes for scale. (To clarify, … More More Like Puke-lele, yeah?
PAHLETIX I would love for this election to be over tomorrow, instead of in November — call me, I dunno, THIN-SKINNED, but I am not looking forward to just over three months of Trump garbage, of Mike Pence trying to square his “religious freedom” bullshit with some awkward newfound support for “L…G…B….T” folks. Of Hillary For … More Various Imagined Futures
There are spoilers in this post for season two of Veronica Mars, and that’s all the warning I’m gonna give because I assume you all have seen it years ago, yes? At one point in the show, Veronica apologizes to her guidance counselor for possibly spoiling the secret of Citizen Kane, and her counselor’s all, yeah, no problem, seen … More TV, TV, TV
Dilemma A and I made a pact that we wouldn’t buy any books this year. And then we cried a lot, and apologized to each other and to the lonely books on our shelves, and we compromised to June. But then I got distracted with moving and packing. Suddenly all our books are boxed up … More YOU DON’T HAVE ANY MONEY
Took E to the pool last night and it was A-MAZING. We did tummy time on a giant kickboard, and various water stretches and games. A+, would do again.
