Screaming babies, crazy mamas, big butts, and my recent absence

By screaming babies, I mean Kaylee.

By crazy mamas, I mean me.

And, by big butts I mean "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mixalot.

I love that song. The words are crazy and ridiculous, but I know I can't be the only one who just belts it out loudly while driving. Come on, you know you've done it.

So, I'm sure you've noticed I've been a little absent from the blog lately. I mean, I know your day starts by hoping and praying that I've published a new blog post, and I'm sure some of you have landed in therapy because you are sad when you don't see something new each and every morning.

But, worry not. I'm not going anywhere.

Last week, Kaylee and I took a ride on the Crazy Train, but rest assured - we have returned safe and sound, with no battle scars to show. She was going through the worst episode of teething to date. And I was trying with all my might not to lose my mind completely. I'm pretty sure part of it is gone, but let's just say it was a miracle I didn't take up drinking.

And by the way, can I just say that I've never, ever considered taking up drinking more times in my life than I have since I became a mom? I just had to get that out there...

So, anyway, we had 3 days in a row of pretty much non-stop screaming, crying, and whining. From both of us. Except I didn't do screaming. Just crying and whining. So, thank God for my sister-in-law who spoiled Kaylee on the 4th day so I didn't lose my mind entirely.

I know my blog was neglected, but life just happens. Something's gotta give some days, and last week, it was my blog. I sure did miss it because it definitely has a way of helping me deal with the craziness of my life.

Thanks, my lovely readers, for sticking with me, even when I don't post regularly. You are the best.

And, now I'm going to bed, because who knows whether or not I'll be getting a middle of the night wake-up call from my almost one-year-old.

oh you're back! too bad i already swallowed a whole bottle of pills.

sorry your week sucked. it's times like that when it is so trying being a parent. teething is so tough because you can't very well be mad at them, but you want them to shut the hell up. at least for a little while.

oh, and my husband knows every word to that song backwards and forwards. loves it.

confession: I know every single word to sir-mix-a-lot's 'Baby Got Back'! I will be singing it all day now!
"red beans and rice didn't miss her!"

ah...sera, you crack me up! I love you. I pretty much own the crazy train. So welcome aboard! :)

Argghhh...that is the worst.
And I've been a bit absent too ... just kind of putting in the minimum effort due to all kinds of stuff in the "real world." (Nothing bad ... just really busy. Plus that whole stupid Twilight series is consuming my every waking moment ... I am in the home stretch though).

Hope things are getting better.
