So the reaction to this post was quite hilarious. In addition to the comments, I was also flooded with an outpouring of emails and texts from people who had a general concern of my state of mind because I was considering wearing -GASP- animal print leggings! There was even one incident of a flaming bag of poo on my door step from someone who was firmly in the anti-animal print legging camp.

I really thought the I would get the biggest reaction to the romper. Which I have since decided is possibly more of a jumper (I know, as if you could not hate the idea more). You can actually go see it here. SEE? It's from Old Navy. I'm not even cool at all. I discussed with a dear friend (while ogling her squishy-lovey-nom-nom-I-wantz-to-eat-you newborn) that if I were to go with said romper/jumper, I might as well just buy a dress and alleviate all controversy.

But I'm still thinking I might get leopard print leggings. YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE PEOPLE.

I am coming to the internet community asking that you pray for Sweet Baby E. Her earthly body is giving out on her and she (and her family) could use all the prayers and positive thoughts you can give. Also, I ask that you pray for the R and B families as they just lost a precious sister, daughter, wife today and there is now a 9 year old girl who is missing her mama. Lots of hurt in the world...hug your fams.

Except that it's Friday.

Whatever.

I am patiently awaiting 10 am for Tiger Woods' statement. Shut up. I'm sure it will be life changing.

The other day, I floated the idea of leopard print leggings past my much-younger-than-me-friend Lauren. She was trying to be nice and all, "Um....yeah...that might be ok." But I know she was lying. What say you? Leopard print leggings with a black cotton dress...yay or nay?

Ok, back to Tiger for sec... How can you expect to be taken seriously when you will not answer any questions? Geez. Everyone say it with me: LOO-ZER.

Ok, back to fashion for sec....I found a (can't believe I'm about to type this) romper the other day that was (can't believe I'm about to type this) cute. I reminded me of a romper I had back in the early to mid 90s that I was WAY cute in. Of course, I am no longer the age that I was in the early to mid 90s. But this romper was black and would look so cute with my jean jacket and a chunky necklace. But I just don't think I could bring myself to do it.

I've been over investing in the Olympics. Facebook and Twitter have been way fun these past few nights. I've loved making rude and disparaging comments about the Russians. I guess when it's over I will have to start making rude and disparaging comments about American Idol contestants.

Yesterday, I told Cason to take something back to his room and he said, "Yes, your majesty." I worry that child is going to act like yours truly.

Cason: Mom, will you watch a movie with me during rest time?

Me (awww...so sweet...melting): Sure. Which movie would you like to watch?

Cason: My Thomas the Train movie.

Me: Oh. Cason, we have so many good movies. Why don't you pick a good movie?

Cason: Ok.

He slowly looks through his movie collection.

Cason: Oh! Here's a good movie! My Elmo movie!

Guys, I must confess. I don't understand this one. I've seen people making it all over the blogosphere and facebook.

(and since we've had more snow this year than Antarctica*...)

Ok, correct if I'm wrong, @Natecast, but isn't snow just frozen rain basically?

I'm sorry, but if it RAINED 6 inches, I would not go out and collect six inches of rain water (even it it was from a clean bowl that I had set out) and drink it. EW! But, is that not essentially what snow ice cream is, plus a little milk and vanilla? I mean, am I missing something here? If you would not drink rain water, then why would you eat snow?

But you know me. I'm slightly neurotic. So maybe I'm wrong somewhere.

*Not really. I just like to be overly dramatic. Obvs.

You have to do things like have your own mini performance in the background while big brother records himself saying the pledge of allegiance.

Re: Article in Celebrity Baby Blog

Sigh. Well, I just don't know. Gisele, I'm sure that you are a really nice person in real life. I bet you are a barrel of fun to be around.

But seriously.

Women already dislike you for three primary reasons: 1) You're gorgeous. 2) You dated Leo. 3) You're married to Tom Brady (although maybe not so much that last one bc he rubs me the wrong way sometimes).

But, G, did you really need to give women another reason to hate on you? Honestly? No pain in childbirth? Me thinks you are not telling the truth. Either that or me thinks you had not back labor (because back labor hurts. like for realsies.)

I'm sure you have already shed the baby weight. If you even gained any. Which I'm sure you didn't. And I bet breastfeeding is, like, so stinkin easy for you.

What's next? Your fight to keep weight ON? The struggles of flying with an infant while on a private jet? Talks of how hard it is to find a good nanny and personal chef?

Yay for you! You are perfect and the day you gave birth, sunshine shot out of your uterus and there were rainbows and kittens dancing around the bath tub to encourage you!

G, you may want to think about keeping your mouth shut or we may agree to vote you off the island of woman kind.

Thanks tons!
