Shhhewww, where has the summer gone.  On June 15th we placed our house on the market.  Last Monday we closed on the old house and on our new house.  The last few months were spent keeping our house spotless just in case that potential buyer wanted to stop by and make an offer.  That offer finally came and we spent the next few weeks packing and then moving.  Uhhh moving! How do we accumulate so much STUFF!  Nonetheless, in between all of the hard work, Alex has expanded our social life into the realm of birthday parties!  We've been to three birthday parties in the last three months, all attributable to Alex's little friends.  One party was at the Little Gym.  Being a working mom, I had no idea this place even existed.  Basically it's a padded room with balls, slides and bars to swing on.  I had to get over the germ factor!  It was so great seeing all the babies interact with one another.  Alex's birthday is coming up and hopefully we have the house put together in time for that "first birthday, happy new year, we survived without killing ourselves, each other, or the baby party!".

On a whim, I added these to my shopping cart on Amazon.  Something about prime shipping and speedy checkouts inspire me to shop!  thaKing declared these are the ugliest shoes he has ever seen! The heel measures approximately 4.75" and the platform measures approximately 1.25".  I am now trying to determine what in the world I am going to wear them with. Any suggestions??

First comes the push gift, which you earn for lugging around 40 extra pounds in your belly and ass and pushing a 9lb baby out of your vag.  I think there should also be a "I survived the first year gift".  We have a had a great first year as parents. The first few weeks were rather shaky. We, like all new parents (more so me), were trying to figure out what the hell we were doing, trying to sort through all the info I we read in all those books, info we learned from classes, the interweb, and everyone's two cents, in order to be perfect, all the while being sleep deprived.  Alex is a happy baby and great sleeper (just like his mom), so that has made our path much easier, I'm sure. Nonetheless, I want my "I didn't pack my bags and leave", "I didn't neglect the baby", "I didn't kill my husband", whatever you want to call it gift! Here's an idea:
