The best part about giving birth is when my husband does NOT think it is that easy, either, along with other things anyone can do with a glue gun!

After 2-1/2 hours of labor -- not to mention, enough time for me to get the grocery shopping done -- my husband helped give birth to my son's idea of the perfect brother, as his science recycle project, last night. "Ah, he's adorable - what's his name, honey?" I quickly took a picture with my camera phone of - what I thought - was the cutest little robot, I'd ever seen! But, you know, I could have sworn I'd seen the look on my husband's face, before. "It's...um...Gerard...uh...I mean, Melvin...no, wait...Spike...yeah, that's it...his name is Spike Dude!" Let's see - face all swollen, red and looking a little blotchy - yep, I've definitely seen this look before. "Oh, that's a good name - for a robot, I mean - you and Daddy did a really great job, while I was gone!" Oh, man. "Yes, and...you...are...so...lucky...to...still...have a son!" Apparently, judging by... Read more →

Some more linky love from a thinking blogger...

Latte Man tagged me (AGAIN!) and this time he says it's because I make him think: "Thank goodness I am NOT married to THAT lunatic!" Okay, he didn't say it quite like that (not out loud, anyways) and - although, I am honored to have been named a "thinking blogger" - I also believe that this is a very difficult meme to participate in and not only because I am NOT very good at following rules, either: 1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think. 2. Link to "this post" so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme. 3. Optional: proudly display the "Thinking Blogger Award" with a link to the post that you wrote. So, I'm going to bend them (a little) and attempt to post a link to the blogs on my... Read more →

For Heather: Today, I'll take my Monday served wet and fuzzy!

If you've visited here, before - and especially if you've ever had the opportunity of spending the weekend at our house - then, you know that I am NOT a big fan of Mondays and perhaps equally, if not less, enthusiastic about mornings, as well. Considering the fact that a Nor'easter has settled over the east coast, is working its way up and it's been raining cold since Saturday night, well, let's just say that the drip...tink...drip...tink...drip of our leaky roof is driving me to the edge of insanity. I could use some hot chocolate, but I don't have a pot to spare! With that said, this has to be one of the most beautiful Mondays I've ever had the pleasure blogging, since reading an email and visiting with Jamie and her very Blonde Mom Blog's "go read it today" post. Because, if I hadn't, I certainly wouldn't be feeling... Read more →

Picture Perfect Thursday - Stinky, sticky and a little sweet.

My husband thoughtfully emailed me this picture, today - though, I didn't ask him to and he most likely did not read my blog - because, he lives with me and knows, you know, just how crazy our house can get. "I don't have to read your blog - I live it!" It can't get anymore real than an unsolicited testimonial to the wonderfulness of me - straight from the husband's mouth and coming from someone who should know - but, here's the thing, if only he knew how much this blog makes our life sound, look, feel and probably even taste a whole lot better, too. I can say things here, that I would perhaps never think about admitting to in the real world, because - not only am I probably too tired, running very late or often times rendered speechless by a situation and unable to respond -...

If I woke up tomorrow with my head fused to the laptop, I would NOT be more surprised than I am now.

Who am I to pass up a chance to celebrate, just a little!?!? The kind and very generous people over at Mother's Day Central put together their first list of Top 100 Mom Blogs and - all you'd have to do is take a good look around, here - imagine my surprise to come home from a looooong two day road trip)and find This Full House of rotting apples and stinky luggage to be in such fine bloggity company, including some of my most favorite...women...in...the...entire...blogosphere, most of who are just about ready to pop a kid, and are still blogging!?! I know what you're thinking - these people be trippin'! - but, it's so nice to know that a itty-bitty blog (like mine) can inspire at least one person to, you know, send a broken-out-and-severely-premenstrual-old-momma (like me) some pretty flowers, not to mention a few kind words, even.
