Motherhood, version 2.0

"Or, you can just start hitting people in the face. I do, these days, when strangers reach out and touch my fantastically large pregnant belly."

Just wait til after the baby is born and people start petting his/her head.

I Got The D'betes.

You can get sugar free, fat free pudding mix that is OK to eat when you have GD. Just make sure to read the labels because some brands brag that they have 0 sugar, but then have 17 grams of sugar alcohols. I also lived off sugar free fudgcicles to curb my cravings!

Motherhood, version 2.0

Oh, I just love you both.

Misty - I am not going to lie. I almost cried at the airport several times, and were it not for a nice old lady telling Noah "you WILL obey your mother" as she helped him get his shoes back on, I probably wouldn't have survived the flight.

Dotdot - that sounds like a great idea. The first thing I'm going to do when my friends start having babies is buy them all really, really loud toys that play obnoxious songs...

Why Do Witches Burn?

Why Do Witches Burn?

No, they were specifically acting out the scene from the movie.

I didn't disagree with Stein's article. I just said people at Tech Support wouldn't need to speak Mandarin to be understood :-).

""I foresee a not-too-distant future when Chinese guys complain about how every time their cheap Google phone breaks, they can't understand the tech-support guy because his Mandarin has a thick Minnesotan accent.""He obviously doesn't realize that the Chinese people who own cell phones are the ones who are also more fluent in English than I... Chinese is one of those countries where you can visit and don't need to speak a word of the language to get along just fine. The Chinese are so eager to speak English that they not only teach their children from a young age, but they also jump on the chance to speak it with a "real American."And they're harder workers.They win.
