Such a Good Girl



I'm a horrible mother. She says Mama, Dada, Lalala (that's her), Yaya (Cat says that's her)... either way I have not documented when it all started. Like I said, I'm a horrible mother. What I do have is Good Girl on video. Yesterday we caught her under the table patting, petting, slightly beating Abelle saying over and over again "good girl good girl good girl." I broke out the camera and there was silence. This is all I got. As soon as I stopped rolling she said it clear as day. Good girl.

She's a damn good girl.

Land of the Sick

Everyone is sick. Baby is sick, Cat is sick, C was sick for a minute & I am sick for a week. It blows. My nose, my throat, my everything. It was bad on Friday, it was worse on Saturday. I've been on a slow and steady road to recovery since then.

One of my pose called me Saturday night. And at the point she called I was cracked out - I wasn't going to answer the phone - yes I was screening. I'm embracing it. Anyway- I did because it was that b's birthday so I didn't want her to think if she was calling to go out I was being a dink. SO I answered the phone, HACKING and barely breathing.

I said, "What’s up- what are you kids doing for the big day?"
She said, "OH NOTHING, just getting engaged."

To which I jumped up (consequently getting dizzy after the phone call ended) and squealed (like a little girl), yelling (now again hacking) for C to tell him. She put me on speaker phone - because apparently I am a riot at death's door. We said “Mozel Tov” and “lei hi-em!”

I didn’t get the details… due to the mess I became after the congrats commenced.

I don't have a lot to report lately - just hacking, fevers and sickness. Babygirl had her first sick baby visit where they told us there was nothing we could do but ride it out and keep on taking her temperature. Clearly the doctor isn't aware we literally have to wrestle her down to the ground to get a read. When we called the nurse and she asked what L's temperature was - we told her the highest has been 102.6*. She asked if this was a rectal temp.

Rectal temp? We can barely get her to put a stick under her arm - you want me to stick something up her arse? Damn fools.

*her temp has not broken 99 since Friday - so everyone take a pill and chillax. Babygirl is cured it's me who remains sick as a D O G. Take a breath.

Arranged Marriages Don't Work

Liza & I have grand plans of getting the kids together but it turns out L does not enjoy the company of other kids her age. It could be she doesn't like sharing, it could be she doesn't like the competition of cuteness - it could also be that her husband to be bitch slaps her from time to time and throws things at her. The boy has guns.

We spent last Sunday hanging with the in laws - sat around, had a delish lunch and went for a walk at the farm. It turns out Liza in her old age is ridiculously domestic, it's scary. If I had someone over for lunch we'd be walking to the deli or calling for pizza. I got there and there was a fab salad, a lasagna and dessert - and not Entenmann's cookie in a box. Made from scratch sht.

Dang.

While for the most part it was all smiles & giggles little girl L wasn't the most gracious of guests. Home girl was a crank pot for the most part but even cranky she's cute.

Hope

While Saturday Night Live will not be as nearly as funny as it has been, the world hopes that life won't be as nearly as depressing. There have been several aspects of the race that have been argued out through out the election. I'm pretty sure that none of them matter anymore.

If not for the hope that you can't help but feel knowing that for once we stood up and believed in hope. I know being a mom has changed me - even my thoughts on this election. It's the hope that he brings with every statement he makes. The chills I get watching him speak whether it be about policy or what kind of dog he'll get for his kids. It's this kind of hope that I want for L, everyday. It's who he is and what he stands for and the kind of man he is. More inspiring than that and what continues to bring me hope is that this country even filled with all of its ignorant, selfish and delusional people those that wanted change did something and pressed forward for it. I can't imagine how long people waited to see this. It is a gift for my daughter to grow up in a time where if you think you can - yes, you can.

Big Day - No Words

Maybe "no" words isn't the right description. Just a few:
1) You should be voting.
2) While you wait on the massive lines or sit in front of the TV to await our fate take a gander:
