Happy Autumn

So, it’s finally here…even though the temperature outside doesn’t agree with my calendar….I’m ignoring that.  Stupid weather.  So, without further ado…

(ahem…) Autumn, how I love thee!  And since it’s official on the calendar?  I’m getting out my decor and going red/orange/brown/yellow happy.  Amen.

Other than that?  I offer visual deliciousness…

I can’t help it.  I want to eat them for dessert.  It’s like Hansel and Gretel over here…except I don’t live in a candy house and I’m not a mean old witch.  Well…one out of two ain’t bad.  (rim shot)  Ok, (rolls eyes) I’m not.  But some days….well, anyway

We went to the doctor yesterday for Keira’s checkup and she’s a nice 23 pounds.  OK, and 14 ounces.  But she asked me to leave that last part out.  Said it totally didn’t matter.  Details, she said.  But I insist.  She’s a healthy one.  Oh, and talking?  Yes.  All the time.  Like a parrot, will repeat anything you want her to say.  Amazing!  Oh, am I bragging?  She says bragging is fine as long as I don’t leave out that she has the most kissable arms, legs, and cheeks on the planet.

And when the doctor, who we love/heart/love asked me how everything was going I might have, before I could stop the words and they came tumbling out of my diarrhea mouth, said that "living with two toddlers nineteen months apart was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my lifetime thus far and that some days I need a little ‘somthin’ to make it all better and did he feel generous enough to prescribe said ‘somthin’ and help a sister out?”  Cough.  I might have.   Or something about shooting me in the head, but only on days ending in “y”.  Also that my back and neck have been hurting a little, but I think I'm sleeping wrong.  Something like that…(trails off….) 

Is that so wrong?  He’s handsome.  He makes me nervous.  Pretty people make me nervous.  I’m just sayin’.  I’m just sa…(trails off again)

You know, looking back...(taps fingers on desk) I think he was asking me how the kids were doing.  Oh gawd.  Oh my gawd.  (buries face in hands)
So anyway….be sure to go say “howdy” to Stacey over at Linus & LuLu – she’s got the latest look from Bushel & A Peck Designs!  And for you?  Only SEVEN days left to get your new look for just $45.00.  You’re next!

Ok, how handsome is this doctor? LOL! I want some details. Snort. :D

Your kids are crazy cute. Seriously.

Hate, hate, hate these stupid summer temps. Come on fall temps!

Girl, you know I love you and all, but leave MY Dr. alone, you can have "Edward" as you loved him first, but Dr. "K" is all mine.

I may be convinced to share him...
well, on second thought you've got AB and he look but don't look so much that you get to feeling woozie.

Love V

LOL - this is hilarious. I feel the same way about people in authority. And if it's a pretty person in authority? OY. I turn to a blubbering mess. Articulation. OUT.THE.DOOR.

I feel ya, on the two toddlers at once. Been there. Done that. WITHOUT the comfort of the blogosphere to distract me. Be sure to surround yourself with girlfriends IRL who are there with ya. We can't do this Mommy thing alone. We canNOT.

Nor should we. Insanity is so much more fun when shared with a friend over a nice cuppa coffee :)
