Y'all want this party started, right?

Let's have a little contest, shall we?

Please post your city, state (if you have one) and country in the 'comments' section of this post and be entered to win

On Sunday, March 30th, I'll write down all of the commenters on teeny, tiny bits of paper and record a video of the kiddo drawing a name out of a hat. If you're picked, you win! How easy is that? And I'm not even asking you to tell me your life story or anything. It really is win-win. For you.... and for me.

Is this nutty? A little. Is this also a way for me to keep my 19-month-old busy before 'night-night-time'? Absolutely.

So, be sure to comment and win free shiz.

It's Alive! It's Alive!!

I'm not sure if this is normal, but when I was a kid, I used to frankenstein parts of gummi bears together to make new, more interesting gummi bears.

I haven't had a gummi-bear in forever, but Jack got a few in his Easter basket.

The result:

And considering it's Easter, the bunny mutants:
And then again with whip cream party hats:

Hope you all had a great Easter.

You Can't Fool Me, I Got A "C" In Genetics...

The kid just went and got his hair cut at one of those fancy shmancy places with planes and cars and horses. 

Carol: Hey look, they do streaks and tips here. Whaddya think if we get him some streaks and tips?

Me:  I think he'd look like a gay George Takei.

Carol:  But George Takei already *is* gay.

Me:  I know. 

Carol: Imagine if the next one came out blonde?

Me:  Um.  I think I'd be asking for a DNA test.

Carol:  Shut up.  If I just gave birth, and you asked for a DNA test, I'd never talk to you again.

Me:  Um.  If you give birth to a blonde baby, I'm not sure if you'd have to worry about talking to me again.  I figure, at that point I'd have as good a chance as George Takei of being the father. 

Fingers crossed for dark-haired babies!
