*My baby lost his first tooth today.
How can that be?? He actually cried tonight after he went to bed because he will “miss” his baby tooth! Such a dramatic kid I have!! But cute, eh? I assured him that the tooth fairy leaves the teeth with mamas so they can hang on to them. 🙂

*I think of having melanoma at random times and it is like a sucker punch in the stomach. I can literally feel my breath whoosh out of my lungs and my heart beat faster. I’m sure (mostly) that I/they caught it in time, but the waiting for the consultation appointment at U of M makes it harder. Once we get to and through that appointment, I’m sure I’ll feel better. (it’s next Wednesday, FYI).

I can’t imagine having to tell my boys. Please don’t make me have to tell my boys.

*So there’s this whole BlogHer thing going on in Chicago this weekend. I won’t be there. Kind of wish I were, since there are so many people I would love to meet face to face! Plus, it sounds like a lot of fun! But, it wasn’t meant to be this year. (even though it is SO close!) I will have to see what next year brings…and see where it is!

*I’ve been having a really hard time with motivation lately. For everything: dishes, house cleaning, laundry, work projects, exercise, outside stuff, even sewing & crafting. I just don’t feel like it. I was so rejuvenated after DC, I’m not sure what happened! I’ve got to get my head back in the game somehow…

I totally SUCK at keeping up with the blogosphere lately, most especially when it comes to my favs like you. Melanoma? Sweetie, I’m sorry. If there’s anything I can, even if it’s just someone to vent to, I’m here.


I have a feeling that Gaby’s first lost tooth is gonna come up and kick me in the face, sooner than I’m comfortable with. She’s my last and I imagine it’s going to be hard.

And I totally feel ya on the lack of motivation. Since I got back from BlogFest I am just a blob. I mean, I’m normally a blob, but more blobby than lately. Yep that’s me, a huge blonde blob.

Did that make ya smile…or giggle? I hope so!

1. My baby is about to lose her first tooth.
2. My sister had melanoma on her back…kind of no big deal. (I was going to tell you that on twitter one day, but I got sidetracked.) If you want, I could put you in touch with her.
