Keepin it real

Well gosh, the last time I had this long of a hiatus from my blog I was pregnant.... well, sorry to disappoint, I've just been extraordinarily busy with my day job, being hostess with the mostess, travel agent and and and.... well... that damn Facebook killed this blog writing star. I will have to start over with my fan base because I know no one is reading this now when they got the Chin Choppa video to watch over and over on Facebook. It is amazing watching that monster grow...I mean of course Facebook, not babyFinn. I admit with my limited attention span nowadays, a quick blurb and the ability to say "like it" keeps me in the loop with everyone much faster than coming up with Japanese potty humor to share.

I shouldn't say Facebook is all bad since it helps me stay "in touch" (that means sane) with my friends who remind me almost daily to take a chill pill and stop reading so many books on how to properly bring up your child. It is amazing what happens to your "confidence" level (aka freaky parent factor) when you and your husband are basically making it up as you go along. Thank goodness Will doesn't read those books!

So my second Mother's Day is around the corner and true to my blog a year ago - it will be a little crazier at the Claxton house this year - how much crazy will be is anyone's guess! Mommy is going to get her first Japanese haircut (peace be with me) and so more blog inspiration could be on its way.

Happy Mother's Day to every mom out there - I truly appreciate everyone's help, advice, controlled laughter and snickers.

I will always be your fan;)

So, here is a funny story to share...for all.

So Hanna had an accident in her pants #2, of course. And proceeded to step in it. Even more gross. Just like her pants, the plot thickens. I took her upstairs to clean her up and Lilly strolls in (yes, naked as always). With my attention turned to Lilly, I didn't see Hanna's great interest over cleaning her shoes...with Daddy's toothbrush. Nice. I quickly remove the toothbrush and throw it away.

...A few hours later we all go to bed. I get this horrific feeling in my stomach and ask Brian if he brushed his teeth. He said he had. I freaked out!!! I confessed the story and he acknowledged the tooth brush was missing from the counter, but Lilly kindly produced the toothbrush (thinking she had hid it somewhere). OMG!!!!

I told him about Hanna's cleaning technique and he freaked out too. Then he asked me to describe the toothbrush...and thankfully, he had opened up a new toothbrush that evening and all was well in Baillieville.

None the less, you may just want to give Brian an hug when you see him in July;)
