I got so sick of watching Elmo’s potty time dvd that I actually begged my daughter to watch Caillou. It wasn’t my proudest moment.

It’s blended time…

Not only am I watching Caillou, the little hummingbird has a keyboard that’s in the shape of a cat and she keeps on pushing the button to make it “sing”. It seems like the company didn’t think of getting a “singer” until the last minute because it sounds like they paid some random person off the street $50 bucks to sing a few cat songs.


I’ve been putting myself through an emotional bootcamp so I’ll hopefully be prepared for my mother-in-law for the next five days starting tomorrow. I have no idea why I make such a big deal about them visiting, I mean people have their in-laws visit all the time but in therapy yesterday, I blurted something out that I wasn’t even expecting.

Obviously my in-laws make me crazy but it wasn’t until yesterday that I realized just how much I’m hurt by how my MIL is. I usually say whatever, no biggie when it comes to her attitude but I guess that’s not the case. Shit! I hate that I care.

I think I’m going to fake an illness like I usually do when they visit so I can hide from them as much as possible. I’m thinking of telling them I have Ebola. That might keep them away.

**If you missed the last post, I’ll be putting MIL posts up on Friday so whether you have a blog or not, if you want to write about your mother-in-law, email your post to elle dot mommyhood at gmail dot com.


The Super Fast Mommy On The Go Movie Review.

21 Grams with Naomi Watts, Sean Penn, and Benicio Del Toro. The movie is awesome and I have a girl crush on Naomi. There’s violence, sex scenes, and nudity; everything you could want in a movie. Seriously though, it’s a really great movie that has 3 story lines and they end up merging. Naomi Watts storyline is absolutely devasting but she is incredible in the movie. When my mom saw this, at the end she said well shit, that movie was really, really depressing.

I give this movie 8 out of 10 Ryan Goslings but I didn’t have time to make 8 so 1 will have to do.

UPDATED! I finally got the chance to make 8 Ryan Goslings during the hummingbird’s nap.



Pomplamoose – River Shiver

I played this video not that long ago but the song has been making me dance around the house today so I hope you enjoy. The video, not my dancing. My dancing sucks and I don’t have any rhythm. A raccoon probably dances better than me although it would be pretty odd to be walking in the woods and see a raccoon dancing. But I bet if you recorded it, the video would go viral. I think it’s time for my meds.

    Haha, I just used Caillou this morning because I’m sick to death of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I think Caillou is a whiny brat but I’ll let it go because there are fewer annoying voices in that cartoon and I really need to be able to drink my entire cup of coffee while it was still warm!

    Good luck with your MIL. If you flip out, can you still blame it on the steroids? Surely, they’d understand.

    agree completely. 21 grams is an excellent movie. so began my lust for benicio del toro. have him “pinned” on my “if i wasn’t happily married” board. ;o) here’s hoping your five days go by amazingly quickly and with little suffering. ;o)

    I think your idea of cooking the whole time the MIL is here is awesome because you come out looking like a supermom-you’ve cooked for everyone and been “actively” taking care of everyone at the same time secretly being “too busy” to hang out and listen to the ridiculous critiques MIL dishes out. Hang in there, you are amazing for dealing with it and the reason you do is because of your daughter-she’ll appreciate that someday…
