Random Thoughts

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

– I was on a “mom support” site, and a woman was asking for tips on how to wean a baby off breastmilk and onto formula. Well, up come the breastfeeding shamers, who try to make her feel bad about wanting to go to formula. To which I say, if you can’t answer the damn question, shut up! The woman didn’t ask for advice on how to keep breastfeeding! She wants to go to formula, not hear your guilt trips!

-My toenail polish is starting to chip. But I’m too lazy to fix it. Maybe I’ll start a new trend.

– My daughter has a little kick piano that has a mode which plays random songs. I cannot identify one of the songs, and I swear it sounds most like “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall.” I’m pretty sure that’s not what Fisher Price had in mind.

– My son got caught up in an academic frenzy and tried to outdo a second grader in reading comprehension tests they take on the computer. It seems he was randomly choosing books he’d never read based on their high point values, hoping that statistically, he would pass some of the tests. The librarian and the teacher didn’t notice at first, but what was the dead giveaway? The fact that he had taken a test on Gone With the Wind. You know, the first book of choice for every seven year old boy.

– I have come to the conclusion that I dislike most of the girl’s clothing that is out there. Boo.

– Is it wrong for me to say that I am so happy that summer is here?  Now I don’t have to frantically juggle putting my daughter to sleep for the night with getting dinner on the table at a certain time.  Which was truly stressing me out.

Spring/Summer Dresses For Girls

Oh yes, it’s that time again!  Time to look at all the pretty dresses!  I know some of these are a bit on the spendy side, but did I mention how pretty they are?

What do I look for in a dress? Vibrant color combinations, wearability, and uniqueness.  Because I have become intimately acquainted with the girl’s section of the clothing store, and there are just so many dresses that look awfully similar to each other, and I can only take so much pink and brown and pink and white.

Salt Water Sandals for the Teeny Persons

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, our friend Glinda has been prevented from posting for the few days by the computer explosion (at least that was how it was described to the Manolo), and so the Manolo has deigned to come down from his exalted publisher perch at the top of the Manolosphere corporate pyramid to lend the hand at the Teeny Manolo.

And the best way the Manolo can lend the hand is by suggesting summery shoes for your little peoples, and the Manolo can think of few better summery little people shoes than the Salt Water Sandals from Hoy.

Original Salt Water Sandals in Fuscia by Hoy Shoes

Here is the Original Salt Water Sandal in the superty cuteity fuscia color for your girl.

And for your boy…

Salt Water Sandals for Boys

The muy macho Surfer Salt Water Sandal in the very masculine navy color.

The best thing about these sandals, aside from their very cuteness, is that they are completely waterproof, meaning that your hand-in-hand stroll on the beach will not ruin them.

Jennifer Lopez and Emme

If I’m not mistaken, that’s a Burberry swimsuit that Emme has on under her sundress.

Marketing FAIL

dog hair bow

From a swear-to-god true craigslist ad



$1.25 EACH ( MIM – OF 10 )



If you are going to go for some sort of dual marketing ploy, at least do it in a different ad! Just imagine how embarassed my daughter would be to have the same bow in her hair as the Yorkie down the street.

Help, I’m Drowning in a Sea of Pink!

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

pink peeps

I knew I was in trouble as early as my shower.  Well, maybe I subconsciously knew it once my doctor told me the results of the ultrasound, but it didn’t really hit me until I began opening my gifts.

Item after item of clothing was unwrapped, only to reveal that it was- pink! Surprise! Or not…  If  said item was not totally pink, then it was comprised mainly of pink. Oh sure, there was some token purple, and perhaps a dash of brown thrown in. But overall the theme was definitely one of uber-pinkness. Even my freaking diaper pail has pink accents.

As someone who has been used to the utter lack of pink for seven years, it’s quite a shock.

I’m already tired of the color pink, and it hasn’t even been a month. It doesn’t help that my daughter doesn’t look particularly good in the color pink, unless it is a very deep pink. Her coloring lends itself more to deeper, brighter colors and pastels just make her look washed out. Is it sad that I am already noticing what colors look good on her? How superficial of me!

I haven’t yet been shopping for girl clothes, I’ve been dependent so far on whatever people bought me. The exception was for some warm pajamas that were on sale at Target for eight bucks (score!), so I don’t know if the epidemic of pink is due solely to the people who attended my shower, or if I am completely out of luck.

I have a feeling that at some point the color pink and I are going to have to make some sort of peace, but I’m not quite ready yet.

Stella McCartney GapKids Collection

This actually came out a week or two ago, and I missed it because I was doing something impractical, like giving birth or something.

Anyhoo, I’d heard a lot of buzz about the collection, and decided to take a look for myself.

Stella Mcartney Gap2


All right, I am seriously digging the Sgt. Pepper jacket.  I don’t know that I would actually buy it, but I am digging it nonetheless.

Stella McCartney Gap3


Not so enthralled with the leopard-screened sweater dress. 

Stella McCartney Gap4


The color palette you see in these photos is pretty indicative of the entire collection. Soft, soft, colors and soft, soft fabrics, including cashmere. 

All in all, there are very reasonably priced articles of clothing that I would certainly purchase for myself, and some great showstoppers, such as the Sgt. Pepper jacket and a fabulous trench coat that many adults would spring for if it came in their size.
