Good, Better, and Just Plain Ugly

Good

Prentke-Romich is featuring Micah in the 2010 catalog.

Is that too cool, or what?! *squeeeeee*

I'm not sure that I can share the link that they sent me because I didn't ask permission, but I can tell you that the entire world will know that Micah's life revolves around eating. "If you give a boy a voice, he'll ask for food" is one of the quotes lifted from my blog pages. I love it. It's so Micah.




Better

I got that once-per-year wild hair and wanted to paint my toenails. The problem being that I didn't have time to do it myself. Fair week is a killer for actually getting work done elsewhere, and I have some serious sewing to do before we go away next week. I had Luke paint my nails while I sewed. There's nothing like an 8 year old boy's paint job on moving feet to make you feel classy. But he enjoys painting, and helping me, so it was a win-win. No, really. I could care less that it looks less than stellar, and that my actual toes are painted as well, and that some of the nails are only dabbled on and not painted at all. Motherhood will make you appreciate the love that goes into the effort instead of salon perfection.




Just Plain Ugly

Today I was reminded to engage my mind before opening my mouth. I had Becky and her friend at the fair this morning and we were admiring the photography exhibit when Becky said, "there's a spider on your back!" I asked her to brush it off but you know how teen girls get all "eeeeek" and "AAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!" and "no, you do it!" and nobody raised a hand to help. I envisioned that thing crawling up my neck and the thought of it actually touching skin made me yell, "don't make me take off my shirt in public!" It was then that about three men stopped dead in their tracks and stared. One icky old man even felt the need to make a lewd comment. I wanted to die and disappear right there. The girls found it hilarious.

.....that's when you drop your voice a few registers and say, "well, I'm self concious. I haven't had my surgery yet..."

1. So cool! I can't wait to see the pictures!

2. So sweet! Luke is going to make some woman very happy some day - and good for him for getting a jump start on it.

3. And AWESOME! I actually thought the girls would be wishing they had just brushed the spider off to begin with.

WAY cool on Micah! I'm so impressed with all that company has done. How is the new green box going? We haven't heard much about it lately.

So did the spider crawl on your skin, or did someone finally make it go away?
