top notch role model

pants: Bella Dahl, sweater: Anna Sui for Target, hat: Express (i really am wearing the ruffle shirt! even though you can't really see the ruffles)

embrace the wrinkles in my pants. these pants are great. big stretchy waistband and delightfully silky and comfortable. but after they're pressed, you literally take one step and they are more wrinkly than one of those wrinkly dogs.

yesterday Ali & Jax came over for Valentine's Day Sugar Cookie Making. and look how pretty they turned out:

Betty Crocker cookie mix from the bag, obviously. Gemsie Bear had her first full sugar cookie (followed by first full sugar high and first full sugar crash) and also she and Jax cuddled on the couch:

then Ali and i got to talking and we sort of just let the children fend for themselves. then we realized Jax was missing. and so we went to look for him. and well, wouldn't you know it, Jax was playing with and had his fingers inside the 4 empty wine bottles in the mudroom. shdkjsdhf. just please. and it was one of those moments when you say to yourself, "self. you realllly need to get your shit together." so i yelled "NOOOOOO JAXXXX! OHMYGOSHHHHH ALI I'M SO SORRY!!!" and she was a good sport and laughed. but i was terribly embarrassed. and basically i looked like a completely crazy lush. it was almost like he was tinkling with the empty wine bottles as if to disapprovingly chastise me. and so i said  to Jax, "Jax, don't judge me. i had friends over."

and that is the story of how my (Mormon) friend's baby had his first encounter with alcohol.

dammit, L.

halfway done with the ruffles.

  6. SO FUNNY. I love that story. Don't feel bad. My baby got into the toxic vicks vapor liquid. At least wine is not toxic. Jesus's first miracle was turning water to wine. Thanks for the blog. LOVE IT.

  7. That is hilarious. Stuff totally happens. We're mormon and when my husband was 5 he picked up a beer bottle in a park and drank from it. Oops.
