August 2011 Moms

Fail.

Overheard at play gym today:

"Yeah I stopped BF-ing at 6 months.  Once he started food he just wasn't interested.  So he just got food and water after that."

What the what?!  Shouldn't this kid still get formula at 6 months?  I mean I'm no expert but I sure did side eye.  Hard.

    OK, so, someone was trying to tell me a story about their experience at Home Depot buying a BBQ.

    Person: Blah, blah, blah, so the sales associate told me to speak to the manager about sales.

    Me: Oh, OK.

    Person: Yeah, and the manager comes and I think she was a lesbian.

    Me: What do you mean?

    Person: Well, she had spikey hair so I think she was a lesbian. Except, she was wearing a cross so maybe not.

    Me: Wait, WHAT? What does being gay have to do with believing in God? And how does spikey hair make someone a lesbian?

    Person: So, I got a great deal on the BBQ.

    Way to change the subject from my pointed questions. I was horrified. This is why I do not like religion. Yikes. This kind of crap scares people off from God but that's a whole 'nother Oprah.

  • I was just going to post why I'm not winning SO of the year award - so this thread is perfect.

    This day needs a do-over.  This morning in a rush to start laundry I washed SO's iPhone.  Feck.  Now, that's bad enough but the real kicker is that he's leaving tomorrow for New Orleans/Baton Rouge and had just gotten an international package on his phone and really needs a phone while he's there.  

    Phone has been soaking in rice all day and did turn on at one point but went back off again.  Any miracle workers out there know how to revive a cooked phone?

    I love how the person went from spikey hair to lesbian to a great deal on a BBQ.

    This is what I was wondering!  Our pedi was still asking this right up until her DD's 1 year appointment.

  • 1.  WTF?  So she decided her kid just no longer needs nutrition at 6 months old?  Cause I seriously doubt the kid is eating enough regular food to maintain growth.

    2.  I would totally buy a grill from a spiky haired Christian Lesbian.  Or anyone.  What the hell?

    3. The phone in rice thing never worked for me, I am sad to say.

    4.  My entire day was a fail.  The kid was BRUTAL today.  Brutal.  Glad Tuesday is his day with DH!
