The Hot Mess Life

Weekend Recap and Weather Griping

Seriously the Mother Nature, can we pick a season and stick with it?!?!?!  I guess I shouldn't be surprised anymore having lived in the Midwest for 20 years.  Oh God, did I just type 20 years!?!  Please excuse me while I got put on some more eye cream and get my cane.  Anywhoo back to the subject.  Is it too much to ask to be able to actually have a spring and not jump from snow to awful humid heat please?
Rain? Really?  

Despite the fact it rained almost all day Saturday (even though Mr. Weatherman said it was supposed to be sunny) we took Miss Sophia to have some one year photos and did some retail therapy with a bestie and of course had our standard Chinese food lunch date.

Oh hey everyone, How you doin'?

Sunday weather was amazing! It was a non stop day, had errands to do in the morning, cleaning/organizing and then went to a first year birthday for a friend of ours and then more organizing   I didn't realize how tiring it was until 8:30 pm came around and I was nodding off.  Worth it though, got a lot of stuff pulled for garage sale we are going to have in a few weeks.

How was your weekend?  Hope you all had a good one and here's to a great week!

Peace Out Peeps! About to get my daycare on!

What the What Wednesday!

Ok, so being a mom now has introduced me to a wonderful world of gadgets to make life easier.  Some have merits and some well...not so much.  Please see below.

One of my friends' GMIL (grandmother in law, being a mom also introduces you to a plethora of new acronyms) got her baby girl one of these for he first birthday.

It is called "The Dog Slicer" for when you forget how to cut a hot dog and need a tool for that.  Now, I added the link to Amazon to purchase The Dog Slicer if you wanted.  Don't worry, I won't judge.  Ok maybe I'll judge just a little.  As I was researching this I came across a whole section of these dog cutters.  Who knew?

Now, this one is called "Dachshund Shaped Hot Dog Cutter: Kids Food Slicing Device", real clever name right?

Am I being to harsh?  Am I being like my parents thinking,"These kids have too much these days, rabble rabble rabble,"?   Who knows, talk to me in 5 years when I'm sure Sophia will cry for everything and anything she sees on tv.  I might just have a Dog Slicer in my kitchen cabinets.
