Today (which was really yesterday)...

~ I realized my wonky, hand-crafted, crotchet key cozy is not going to work, despite my craftsmanship.

~I finally, inwardly, agreed with my husband that it's embarrassing and stupid-looking. It looks like a granny square ate my car key.

~I also remembered that it was the same husband that bought a clunky, dumpy mini-van with a ONE car key which happened to be BROKEN, as in, no way to attach it to a keyring. I'm going to make him wear the discarded key holder as an ear warmer.

~Because of my haphazard-ish house-keeping, I discovered that if my bra rests on top of my computer charger, it will warm it up for me before I put it on. I think I should call Sky Mall.

~I could not stop laughing at my daughter's comedic timing that is emerging from her three-year old mouth. She now makes a funny statement, pauses and then says, "wah-wah".  (have no idea where she got that.) So, it went a little something like this: "The Pillow-Pet farted!" (blaming someone's flatulence on her bumble bee plush) Pause. "Wah-wah!" I, of course, bust out laughing, which further encourages it. Yes, I let my kids say, "fart".

~My hairdryer died. I knew something was up when it sounded like a 747 warming up and smelled like burnt hair.

~I've decided to indulge in reading my new Food and Wine magazine, while Gordon Ramsey bleeps his way through an hour of Kitchen Nightmares. Told ya. BBC America, baby. I don't know why I love Gordon so.

Actually, naptime is running out. I've spent most my time doing this post. Tomorrow will have to be Food and Wine time.

Hope you enjoyed this pointless and possibly TMI post. Sorry about the pictures being lame.

Love ya, Foodies.

Um...So I thought I would end it right here, but I was just greeted with the most amusing thing. Amusing in the sense, that I do not understand how a 16 month-old can be so in-tune with removing articles of clothing.

I heard my youngest up in his room crying. I thought maybe it was a lost paci or teething issues. No. Buck-naked with strewn poop diaper and random, rolling turds under his bare feet and on the floor. Only one snap was undone on his sleeper. Just one! And he was able to squirm out of it and pee all over the bed. Half-giggling and half crying, he bobs up and down in his crib with his pale-white adorable bum. I just laughed and laughed as I picked up the poop and wiped off the heels of his feet, back of his knees and under his finger nails. This may sound weird, but these are the days I wish he would never grow up. He's so damn adorable...poop and all.

Apologies that this was more a "mommy" post than a "foodie" post. Poop is so much apart of my daily life and I find it so hilarious that I must share. I guess it would be no surprise to you that Dumb and Dumber is one of my all-time favorite movies...yes, that scene.


  1. oh yes....mornings like that happen around here too sweet bella...laughing WITH you.....big HUGS

  2. Laughed out loud several times while reading this post. I heart talking about poop. In fact, about a week and a half ago, I had to give my two-year-old an enema. Now that was interesting.

    Love the bra-warmer idea!

  3. ah yes...the joys of parenthood, I remember it well!! thanks for an entertaining and uplifting post, somedays it nice just to relate to each other as people...sigh
    Hope your having a splendiferous day!

  4. Is it amazing how they undress themselves? Or how they get food IN their diaper but they're wear a long sleeve shirt AND a onesie? The heck?

    I live in Germany, but we have UK satellite so I looooove me some British and Irish food shows. They seem to have so much awesomeness, I want to move there. If I had German satellite maybe I'd feel the same about the German food scene?

    Aww your daughter is cute. Is it funny that they KNOW they're funny? My 3 year-old thinks she's Richard Pryor minus the potty mouth

    My 19 month-old is currently chilling on our kitchen table. He climbs EVERYTHING. Little monkey.

    I, too, love the bra warming trick!

  5. Oh my gosh, that is one sight!! =) The key crochet is too cute.

  6. Sounds like a normal day to me. Dr Food doesn't poop but he does drool now and then :--)

  7. Life with kids...and a husband. Never dull, is it??? My youngest (13 months) is currently bopping around her crib, chatting to herself, laughing and having a GRAND old time in there. And I am hiding in the kitchen, drinking a glass of wine!

  8. Never too much information with you! You are such an engaging and funny writer...I love it when I see you pop up on my google reader. I also loved seeing your cozy was a valiant effort! Thank you for sharing, love. I hope you are having a relaxing Wednesday night!

  9. Lovely post. Sometimes blogging is about what really happens in our lives vs the dinner we ate. You should totally write more like this.

  10. The key is funny. The things we do and then undo.

  11. Hahaha, sounds like it was an entertaining afternoon to say the least for your little guy. The crochet key cover it too funny - a nice attempt, but very funny.

  12. I think the key cover is adorable and at least it serves its purpose right?
    I'm new to foodie house but I love it. I just finished reading through all of your posts and watching your videos and you're hilarious. I'm vegan but I gotta say everything you make looks delicious and your enthusiasm is so contagious. I will definitely keep reading.

    PS: Mama Z mocumentary on youtube. all time favorite. keep blogging you're amazing.

  13. thanks guys for your comments! I'm so glad you liked this. It was totally random and so much fun to write. Things have been kinda intense with the Project Food Blog contest, so this was a nice distraction.

    To all the mommies...I know you feel my poop pain. doesn't it seem like there is always someone's bottom to wipe or diaper to change? I should be the spokesperson for Huggies wipes the way we go through them.

    Dennis, I love that how you coo about your fam. It's so sweet.

    Ashley, that is one of the sweetest comments I've gotten in a while. Thank you for appreciating my crazy videos! The mockumentary is my fav too. I'm so happy you found foodie house!

  14. BAH! It erased my comment. Shuckstodarnits.
    Ok. What did I say?
    I loved your post. Mommy food bloggers are the best.
    I was laughing out loud about your granny square key thing and then harder at the poop part. Poopy parts are the thing I need to be more chill about. That's why you're a good mommy.
    Gordon Ramsay. He's such an arse. An arse I can't stop looking at.

  15. Poop IS funny (and as I type this, my son has pulled his pants down around his ankles & is dancing around our dining room, and of course, I'm laughing my a$$ off!).

  16. The inventive bra-heating method, granny key-holder, trailing poop and kids being allowed to say 'fart'... we mommies DO have many things in common apart from our love of food, after all! I just never had the guts to share these TMI thoughts out loud like you just did in this post. You're a trailblazer and that's why we adore you! LOL.

  17. This made me laugh as usual :) I always sneak reading your blog at work then bust out laughing...which isn't so sneaky and a little awkward.

    Also I saw the results today!!! Yay for moving on in PFB!

  18. All right, I just gotta comment even though this is my first visit to your blog. My hair dryer died last week, too, and your description of the 747 revving up cracked me up because that IS what it sounded like! As did you photo of the hair dryer, RIP. But I got a new one with a diffuser! My hair is straight and it makes my hair curly!

    Thanks for the food blog challenge video...very entertaining and love the vegan cake recipe.
