My Cat Is Jealous Of Wii Fit

We have this very large screen television that turns our Family Room into a drive-in theatre. In the beginning I was all "No way. It's too big." And hubby was all "There's a 25% restocking fee." And I was all "I love it."

This drive-in is perfect for the Wii Fit we were lucky enough to get for Christmas. It makes the scenes ve-e-ery life like which is great for me, but not so much for my pets. Benny, our chocolate lab, has learned to wait until I'm done boxing and snow boarding for his walk. However, my cat is not as patient. ("Pet me now damn it"! I believe is her motto.)

So I'm finishing the workout with a little Lotus Focus. What you do is sit on the board as still as you possibly can and still breathe. The screen shows you a burning candle and you are to focus on the flame. What is completely freaky about this is that all the while there are footsteps in the back ground getting louder, then running away. There is a moth flying closer and closer to the candle. Don't get to close!!! Oh man, burnt to a crisp. OK now. Focus on the flame. If you don't focus, if you jiggle just a bit, the flame will blow out and a loud voice shouts "AAAHH!" (or it just sounds like that) and a weird shape shows on the screen. My girls can't stand it. But I kinda' it.

I was doing well with my focusing. The goal is to go 2 1/2 minutes and I was almost at the end. My cat starts surrounding me. 'Go away Maddy. I'm almost done.' I whisper out of the corner of my mouth. Maddy sits on the floor right in front of me and gives me the kitty stare. You know the one.

She starts circling again and, before I know it, she jumps on my right leg. "AAAHHHH!" shouts the screen and "AAAHHHH!" I shout right back . Maddy goes flying off my leg and into the air. She knocks over my daughters art project then lands gracefully on a chair.

When I regain my composure I look over at Maddy and she seems to have a smirk on her face. Damn cat. She showed me whose boss, again.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic?

It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
