Thursday 13

Thirteen Things about T.J's Mommy

1. I don't know how to parallel park.

2. I can spend dangerous amounts of money at Borders Books on books for The Boy.

3. I did just this last night. We bought: Snuggle Puppy, The Backyardigans Royal Valentine (for T.J.'s Valentine's Basket), and also Baby Einstein's Language Nursery, My First Spanish Word Board Book, and The Backyardigans Jungle Colors.

4. I thought I was a patient person B.C. (before children) Now, I know it's something I need to work at. Daily.

5. Sometimes I feel like little more than a diaper changer who just happens to also be a human milk dispenser.

6. I've never felt like I was exceptionally talented at any one thing.

7. I am a damned good cook, though!

8. I can also put a candle out from across the room. With my boob. Now that's talent!

9. When I'm really stressed, I revert to biting my nails - I did this compulsively as a child.

10. Yesterday I totally cheated on my diet - really for the first time. After not having ice cream for over a month, and sugar for 3 weeks... The Boy and I shared a "Loves It" Coldstone Cheesecake Fantasy... Cheesecake
Ice Cream, Graham Cracker Pie Crust, Blueberries & Strawberries.

11. In my defense: it had fruit in it, the cranky teething Boy hadn't had a nap all day, I had inadvertantly skipped lunch, and we also walked 2 miles beforehand.

12. He and I loved it.

13. It was totally worth it.

You are sooo funny. The candle thing OMG. I never could parallel park until I moved to the city where I was forced to do it. Now I'm kick ass at it.
