Pennies for My Thoughts: I Accept Paypal

Twitter is but one way for me to find a home for the parade of non sequitors that trample across my brain. My blog, this little verbal hut for my thoughts, is another way I channel all that rolls on the hamster wheel in my head. And so today I bring you the latest round of cerebral confetti flitting about in my brain.

Money with no taste is a shame. Money with no generosity is criminal.

If a woman's work is never done, why is a man's?

Who's making all those hoochie clothes for 10-year old girls? And more pressing, what parents are buying it?

I need a family vacation. But this I mean I need a vacation from my family.

Why are 4, 5, and 6-year olds riding in strollers? A mere three blocks.

Why are those same kids sucking pacifiers? On the way to grammar school?

Why doesn't all the mud tracked into my house stay in the mudroom?

Can someone explain Kate Gosselin's hair to me? Is it an upsidedown mullet? Her stylist must be a beauty school drop out.

Freelance is a misnomer. No wonder I'm not getting paid.

Reality TV has been redefined since I saw the Planet Earth series.

WHAT IS UNIQUA? Also, why is Austin in some episodes, but not others? Does he have an earlier curfew than the other Backyardigans? Is he grounded? WTF?

I am always astounded by the size of the kids in strollers at the mall and at the fair.

Sadly, the hoochie clothes don't wait until the girls are 10. I found some disturbing swim suits for my 15-month-old. She's ONE for pete's sake -- she doesn't need to show cleavage, doesn't need to have rhinestones, doesn't need string bikini bottoms. Really, don't get me started on this one. It was so much easier with my son.

CSO, Um, rhinestones for a baby's swimsuit?! I'm aghast.

Aren't you glad you don't have a 10 year old girl? I am afraid for my future.

AGAIN I'm glad I have only sons. Who never used pacifiers and opted to climb out of strollers at every opportunity.

Ugh, please don't judge me or my little girl when you see her in her hoochie bathing suit this summer. Realize she's just a little girl who likes pink and sparkly things (just shimmery, no rhinestones I don't think) and I'm a mom who's sometimes too tired and distracted to notice exactly what we're putting in the basket at Target. Sigh. Plus, with her little 4-year-old pot belly I think she's more cute than hoochie.

A few of these really made me laugh out loud.

Wonder pets...not on my tv in my lifetime...so annoying!

Love the weber grill reference too!
