Wrong Number

March 20, 2011 | By | No Comments

I received a text message in error today. I am confident that I was not the intended recipient, because the message read as follows:

>> Hi Katy! Could you tell me how many boxes of cookies we owe you for? <<


I haven’t been called “Katy” since that unfortunate week I worked for the landscaping company.  Seriously though, I could have had a lot of fun with this by criticizing their grammar or otherwise replying with some snarky li’l missive.  Instead, I realized that someday my little girl might be the one selling those cookies. And trust me, she will want to be paid in a timely manner.

I replied:

>> 47 <<

Always happy to help a budding entrepreneur.

Sleep ‘n Stuff

March 18, 2011 | By | No Comments

I’m incredibly excited right now. This is…OK, I need to describe how…The thing is…

I’ll start again.

Isla slept through the night…the ENTIRE night for the first time in like, five months. I might still be a little groggy from all the uninterrupted pass-outitude, but I have never been this happy in my life, and I will likely be this happy ever again. I could be wrong however.

Isla also seemed to enjoy her first St. Patrick’s Day. We didn’t do anything exciting, really, but she thoroughly enjoyed her pulverized green peas and wadded green beans. She also had fun wearing the perfunctory green bib as evidenced by the following exhibit from our vast assortment of baby bib photos (which we maintain for insurance purposes, naturally.)

She also has one hell of a handshake

Patty has some Irish descent (I love her anyway,) so we’re not breaking any laws by allowing Isla to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Just needed to make that clear.
