New Mom Moment #347

Last night my hubs and I were watching one of my new favorite shows, Parenthood. One of the scenes involved a mom helping her brother's son remove his stuck thumb from the mouth of a soda can.

The mom says something like "I happen to have some slippery slime in my purse so we'll put that on it and it should come right off. Let's say the magic words as I pull your thumb out, 'slippery, slimy, slippy!'"

Then voila! The kid's thumb is free.

I then turn to Aaron and say "I'm going to have to Google that slippery slime stuff and make sure I have some in the diaper bag." He looks at me and says, "All that was was lotion."

Maybe I should Google cool mom ways to help your kids out of stuck situations.

 My two little monsters. Let's hope for their sake they never stick their thumbs into any soda cans.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today I am celebrating the 28th anniversary of the day I was born. Thanks mom and dad for having me and having me first (cuz Rusty's a pretty fun little brother).

Thanks also to my mom for another wonderful variety of gifts such as my very own copy of one of my favorite books, Ella Minnow Pea, a pint-sized Italian creme cake, a sweet $5 pair of jeans, a $100 bill, and several fun food items. And thanks for letting me talk you into giving them to me a day early. I knew you'd be easy to win over.

For myself, I bought these fun felt flower headbands from my friend Ann's Etsy shop.

You should spend some time window shopping in her shop today.

Tonight, my hubs is taking me out for dinner and a movie, Alice in Wonderland (he even told me he'd spring for the 3D tickets!) and my mom is watching the boys. All around, a wonderful day.
