I Always Blame it on My Mom Too, Christian Bale

My mom also causes me to go into fits of rage. I understand.

I Love Pop Culture! And Sesame Street!

Okay, okay, so I may be suddenly obsessed with Sesame Street because of my son's love of Elmo. Or, "Melmo," as he says. (Van also sat on Derek's lap last night and watched the entire Home Run Derby... so he still loves sports too.) But, I thought this was too cute not to share.

Segways are Hilarious

I don't know why I think this is so funny, it must just be because Segways are hilarious.

So Embarrassing

It is so embarrassing to invite friends you haven't seen in years, and try to serve them raw chicken. Even more so when your husband proclaims it loudly from the table (where he had begun carving), and has to go to Wal-Mart and get a back-up chicken. It happens to the best of us!

To my defense, the twice-baked potatoes, lemon pepper green beans, garden salad, garlic bread and cherry cobbler were still the bomb. My husband is never going to let me hear the end of this... and I wonder if Bob and Becky will ever come back?!?

Van's Celebrity Twin

You all know about my love of Celebrity Baby Blog. Heck, they even blogged about me blogging about them. I am a minor celebrity, albeit in my own mind.

However, I often spend time comparing my son to the children of the rich and famous. Things like, I don't need to wean Van off his passy, Kingston still has his and he is older than two. Sasha looks just as big as Van, and he is only a year old.

I also spend a lot of time dwelling on Van's celebrity baby mates, meaning those the same age as him. And I've been so distressed, because his twin has been (up until now) Liam, that's right, the son of Tori Spelling. I even remember reading about his birth in US Weekly in the hospital right after I had Van. But what is more distressing about this comparison, is that then I judge myself against Tori Spelling. She has already had another baby (Stella is a great name BTW), and I can't even begin to wrap my mind around another pregnancy.

So as I was reading Celebrity Baby Blog this morning and I found out that Wyatt, Sheryl Crow's son, is exactly the same age as Van. And I now proclaim that he now takes over as Van's celebrity baby twin, and I can compare myself to Sheryl Crow. SO MUCH COOLER THAN 90210! I'm already closely examining her use of accessories, I think it will help me accomplish the I-am-a-cool-mom-so-relaxed-and-still-rockin' style that I deserve!
