Oh, Sarah Palin, I’m thankful today that you never disappoint me.

Also, for family and baked goods, but mostly Sarah Palin.

You Slept

Posted by parsingtime on November 24, 2010

I didn’t sleep at all last night.

Oh really? You didn’t move any of the three times N was up last night?

N got up three times last night?

Yes, she did. You may have slept poorly but you were definitely asleep.

I’m only slightly bitter about the I didn’t sleep at all last night comment. I’m at my breaking point. After 5 months of feeding N at night, the question must be asked…isn’t she full yet?

Hair Loss Club for Women

Posted by parsingtime on November 23, 2010

For those of you in the know…please tell me that my hair will stop falling out before I am completely bald? Every day I swiffer my bathroom  and clean out my hairbrushes  and find enough hair for a wig.  Every time I run my hands through my hair 30 hairs come out. The madness must stop. But when?

Making pumpkin cupcakes and dip for Husband’s potluck lunch today. Thank goodness I don’t actually have to get a Thanksgiving meal out on the table.

James Cameron

Posted by parsingtime on November 22, 2010

You know what that movie is like?


It’s Pocahontas set in the future. I’m never watching another James Cameron movie again. Between that and Titanic I feel like I’ve wasted 6 hours of my life.

Guess who watched Avatar last night.

You aren’t going to like that.

You don’t know that.

Yes, I do. You aren’t going to like that.

Takes a bite…we are at someone’s home and they are serving dessert. Husband, eats his bite and then eats one more. Later that evening:

That thing was disgusting. I can’t believe you let me eat that.

I tried to stop him.

I Usually Enjoy Getting Mail

Posted by parsingtime on November 16, 2010

Dear N’s Bowels,

Please stop delivering packages at 5:30 in the morning.  You wake up the one who receives the package and in turn the one who has to sign for it.

Opening packages at 5:30am when my eyes are still glued together and my nose has not had time to prepare for the onslaught  is cruel and unusual punishment.

Please for the love of pete wait for another hour or two.



PS I curse you daylight savings and all your children too.

Officially Tired and Unhip

Posted by parsingtime on November 13, 2010

Weekends in the Time Household:

Everyone under one is in bed by 7:10. Everyone over one is in bed by 9:15.  Which only makes sense because everyone under one wakes up at 5:30, which means everyone over one is up by 6:30ish (there might of been some amuse yourself time in the excersaucer in our room) and out for coffee and breakfast by 7:30.

Weekends with an infant who still hasn’t adjusted to daylight savings sort of sucks. It’s a good thing she is cute.

N, 4 months 8 days

Weight – 15lbs 5oz , 80%
Height – 26 inches, 94%
Head Circ. – 17 inches, 93%

I have birthed a giant with a giant head. All those stats combined with the hair make people think she is older than she is.

These were taken on the bberry (so excuse the crappy quality) on our walk to UPS after N’s 4 month shots (love my neighborhood where you can walk to the post office and UPS. Give it up for the small town feel of my little part of Houston) .  She totally recognized the nurse from last time. She was perfectly content until the nurse walked in with the shots and then she screamed bloody murder. Shots suck. For the patient and the parentbecause dealing with your baby after shots is no fun, despite the smiles in the above photos.

The Deathly Hallows

Posted by parsingtime on November 11, 2010

I rarely go to the movie theater to watch movies but I’m sort of dying to see Harry Potter. I love the books. I watched the last two in India and while not being able to eat before a colonoscopy in Charlotte, respectively. Random and I searched Delhi far and wide for the Deathly Hallows release and then sat by a pool and read the day away.

Anyway, so I told my mom I wanted to go see it and she said sure she would come babysit so Husband and I could go. Ha.


As if. I told her maybe she could come babysit one weekday afternoon because I’ll have to go see it by myself.

All I have to say is fine Husband can ruin HP for me with all his negative commentary but if he influences N into disliking it before she has had a chance to determine herself whether she likes it or not, I’m going to have to smack him.
