I really need a “3 things that bother me at 33” thread. So, here it is. And yes — it’s my birthday.
1. The sad, SAD news at the 2 week check up is that P’s umbilical stump is goin‘ strong. The pediatrician said that she’s seen umbilical cords stay on for up to 2 months. SERIOUSLY, this girl needs a real bath. And, I am totally tired of alcoholing it at the diaper changes. If she could give me a gift, I wish it was her cord.
2. The squirrels got our cucumbers. I hate them. They also have gotten all our carrots and the cilantro and they are literally eating our jalapeno plant. Seriously, what’s up with that. If any of you love me come kill the squirrels.
3. I need to vote today. There are so many weird loopholes in the bills that I can’t figure them out. I suppose I should just be glad they didn’t put-up Prop 8 again, right? Go vote CA’ians. However, on a brighter note, it was my son who reminded me to vote. I’m glad they’ve talked about it at school, etc.
A big shout out to my friends Robin and Kim who share my exact birthday. People born on this day rock. Go team.
