Recent Discoveries

Sometimes I discover things that I just feel like everyone should know about. This is a short list of these things. Not that I'm pulling a "Columbus" and claiming to have discovered any of this first per se, I just feel like I need to spread the word. Also, there is some potty language in this post. 

And now for a video that is amazingly apropos to my current situation (there's cussing in it. The F-bomb mostly):

1 - "Go the Fuck to Sleep" by Adam Mansbach. This version is particularly fantastic because it's narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, who is a purveyor of awesomely quotable quotes. "I've had it with these mother fucking snakes on this mother fucking plane!" comes to mind, as well as Bryan and my favorite, "I don't remember asking you a GOD DAMN THING" from Pulp Fiction. Okay, that one may be a tad bit obscure, but it's in there and it's super funny, especially when applied to an awkward encounter with a nosy host at a family theme park, but that's a story for another time.

2 - The Bloggess. Apparently I'm pretty late to this party, but this is a blog from a woman in Houston and her life. She rants. She raves. She cusses. A lot. She's pretty hilarious, and if you only read one post I think it should be this one.

3 - Tzatziki. It's a Greek style cucumber and yogurt dip with dill and sometimes garlic if you're feeling edgy. You eat it with pita chips because it's classy. It's super healthy too, so you can eat the whole bowl and not feel as bad about it as you would if it were something like 7-layer dip. Win!

The Magic Blanket

It's been a month! We've had a super fun time being parents, except of course for the lack of sleep. In our case, the sleepless nights were due to our squirmy little toot wiggling out of his snuggly swaddled blanket, in which case he would find his newfound unrestrained freedom completely unacceptable. Thank goodness for psychic aunts though, namely Aunts Pat and Jennie, who sent us a special swaddling blanket with velcro to keep it in place so he can't wiggle out of it. Now Mylo gets to sleep 3-4 hours in a row, so he's happy, and mom and dad get to sleep 3-4 hours in a row too, so we're happy. Win-win-win!

He told me to say he's got the moves like Jagger.
