Can you hear that?

That's the sound of Madeleine, the amazingly loud breathing pre-schooler. Nightlite plus soothing Beattles instrumental album, hooray.
Can you hear that other sound? That's Pooh-y, the snotty, teething 8-month-old. Crying for his mama to bring boobies. Good thing the little fucker is cute as hell.

I love the banner! So, go hurry and take the lunch cart over to the 8-month old...the screaming will only get louder if you delay!

It's a good thing these babies are cute, because I'm going through a lot of shit to get one, and it sounds like I'll be going through a lot of shit once I do get one, too.

Glad the nightlight and music worked for Madeleine!

I can't tell you how many times I've thought that: "It's a good thing you guys are cute."

If my second two children weren't so cute, they'd be under the house with the dogs being raised as feral creatures (the first child was an ANGEL, nature's way of tricking me into continuing to procreate willy-nilly, the red tooth-and-clawed bitch). In my "spare" time I've fallen in love with your blog and would like to be your very best friend. Since I live a bazillion miles away, I've added you to the blogroll instead and will just continue to stalk blissfully. XOX MFA Mama

If they were ugly we would be extinct. Thinkaboutit. Maternal instincts can only carry you so far. :)

The "cute" think is for real and not just with humans. Once, when the first kid was just wee baby, some friends found an abandoned kitten. Tiny, forlorn and hungry. The kid had already sucked me dry, but the sight of that little kittie caused a massive "letdown" factor right then and there.
And, no, I did not breastfeed the kitten.

MFAMOM I LOVE YOU TOO!! You're on my list, until I convince my husband to move to wherever you live and I can just take up residence in your yard.

Yeah, wrdgrl, that letdown thing is a fickle beast. Mine gets triggered by random things completely unrelated to children or cuteness. Like yesterday, when I was using the drive-thru bank thingy with the big sucking tube. The whoosh started and oops! there goes my milk. Huh.

Yes, good damn thing they are cute or we would starve them to death. Well, that and boobies hurt when the little suckers are not at work.
