Hearing Things

Waking up to tiny voices in the next room; 
voices which have grown into little people voices; 
voices which call for me, "mama," and "mommy," 
voices which I carry in my heart every last moment.
Waking up to your voices, Tatum and Chase,
Is my greatest privilege.

Happy Mother's Day, Friends.
Mothers, Sisters, Aunts, Soon-to-be-Mothers, Grandmothers....

And to my Mom, heh, I turned YOU into a Gran.  
How cool is that?
I adore you Mom.

The Bitches Expand

Because I am lazy could not have said it better, please go see Jason to discover

a) why I popped two four Tylenol with coffee this morning 
b) why my kids got Lunchables in their lunchboxes today instead of hand-made sandwiches
c) why it's really, really hard not to disclose a little something about spit
d) why meeting bloggy friends is such a sweet part of my life (super sorry Deb and Mel for missing the big one tonight).
e) why I continue my "Wicked" crush on Jason, Cheri @ Blog This Mom!, and katydidnot, and have developed a new crush on Pumpkin Delight.
f) why I love having a mom who lives nearby and babysits for free!

Pocket Life

Steve Jobs called the iPhone "Your life in your pocket."  Although I don't carry my iPhone in my pocket, because, well, you know?  Turning the ringer off does, um, funny things, I do find much love in Mr. Jobs' statement.  Because holy moly, have you seen the Apps for this thing?

Dude, seriously?  There's an iPhone App for choosing what to eat for dinner?  Nice.  'Cause I pretty much stink at meal planning.  Just shake that little thing up and... let's see, Taco Salad, Jello, and Artichoke Hummus.  Okay...

Oooh, and there's an iPhone App for figuring out that catchy tune that you heard in the grocery store?  You just have to hold your iPhone up to the vent in the aisles of Vons.  Don't worry, you don't look like your channeling ET or anything, because everyone totally knows about Shazam!  Duh.  

Love to facebook?  Love to Tweet?  Yup.  There's an iPhone App for that.

So Mr. Jobs, here's some market research for ya'.  I need an iPhone App that can:
  • Think of the most clever idea of ALL (mwahahaha) for Teacher Appreciation day Week
  • Tell the kids that we are buying a birthday gift for (insert name) and that his/her birthday is not for (insert 364ish days).
  • Ironing
  • Vacuuming
  • Bringing in the garbage cans
  • Foot massages
  • Laundry
  • Wash the kids hair without dripping soap into their eyes
  • Archive photo albums for the last 30+ years

I'm just thinking, as child who watched The Jetsons and thought mobile televisions and 

phones with pictures (Skype

were far-out ideas, we can't be too far off from the Rosie the Robot iPhone App, right? 

Sign me up!
