In which I'm stripped of my mother of the year award

I just made a batch of this, and I'm pretty sure I won't be eating anything else until it's gone. It's amazing. And I deserve it after a day of malfunctioning computers, a disobedient, shrieking child and a disobedient, puking dog.

I spent my entire morning at camp, trying to figure out a minor computer problem. Well, it seems minor know that I know what was causing it. At the time it was major.

I'm using the television as a babysitter right now until Kyle gets home from practice. You may call it bad parenting. I call it my coping mechanism.

Jack said, "Dang it!" when I saw Murphy puking on the carpet. Nice. I know it could be worse, but it's not exactly what I wanted to pass on to him. And it pretty much cancels out every "I love you" and "thank you" that he said today.

I want to take a picture of my belly at 13 weeks, but I'm embarrassed. Because it's half 13 weeks pregnant and half 21 months post-partum baby fat.

When Kyle gets home, I will ask him to take care of bedtime, and clean the kitchen, so that I can go to bed early. Like at 7 PM. And I will pull out the "I'm carrying your second born" line if that's what it takes. But I don't think it'll get that far.

I'm about to start my second apple's worth of taffy apple dip. We'll call that dinner, I guess.

I want you to know that the fact that you are eating it with an apple cancels out all the calories you may be consuming. Especially since you aren't scrapping it from the bowl with a spoon and eating it that way - cause that would totally be how I would do it, in which case I could not consider that dinner ;)

Sara, this in no way eliminates you from mother of the year running. You ate it with an apple, as the previous commenter noted. And you're pregnant. And the TV is a suitable babysitter for a time when you're pregnant and tired.

And I'm going to have to go make some of that dip soon...
