Junk

1. So today's the day. The big haircut we've all been waiting for. Well, I have and you've probably been secretly excited about it too because I can't imagine any of you thinking about anything other than MY HAIR. I wasn't feeling nervous AT ALL until this morning and now I'm getting a little scared. I had a nightmare that was reminiscent of my last hideous haircut which you can read about if you click here. Remember THAT white trash moment? It's one of my greatest to date. Fortunately, I'll only have Jake and Kora with me (and my trusty movie theater) so I think they'll do just fine. They can usually manage to behave when it's just the two of them, it's when you throw a 3 year old in the mix that things get hairy.

2. In regards to my contests...First of all Sheriece, you haven't emailed me your mailing address so I can send you your prize. What's up with that? I know it's not a $100 baby sling or something of ANY value, but your starting to make me feel unimportant. SO get on that. Secondly, I have decided to occasionally host these silly little contests which will NOT be announced but rather randomly thrown into a simple post such as this. You'll have no warning so you better be reading ALL of my unimportant jibber jabber if you wanna cash in. Thirdly, the prizes will consist of items I have accumulated over the years which I keep in a drawer called my "junk items drawer". (Amy, remember this drawer we talked about a couple years back for an upcoming event we were hosting?). Most of these items were given to me as stocking stuffers, baby/wedding shower gifts, freebies in the mail, etc. etc. We all know and are familiar with these type of gifts. I WON'T be advertising what the winner will receive because who knows...it may have been YOU that GAVE me this gift. You'll only find OUT what the winning prize IS if you are the winner because it will be mailed to you. Fair enough?

3. To boob or not to boob. This will be an upcoming post for next week. Stay tuned for the drama - Oooohh the drama.

4. Austin had his rifle and pistol test yesterday and got sharpshooter on both. There are three levels you can achieve. Starting from the bottom, it's marksmen, sharpshooter and then expert. He was only 2 point away from getting expert on his rifle, but he has a chance to accomplish that next week so we'll see. Even though you'd assume that someone would want to achieve the highest for each, Jake has a different philosophy. HE thinks that it's best to have one expert and one sharpshooter because he wants the pins on your shirt to be different instead of two of the same. When he found out that Austin will probably have one of each, he couldn't stop smiling and went off to tell anyone that would listen!

I always say boob. ok...really, i have no clue what you're talking about. but i'm pretty sure I know what it's leading up to. AND i love new haircuts. post pictures of your hair and your belly, k?

That's so funny about jake. I love that he's so mature until it comes to something like metals and then he's like every other kid and wants to see different ones because they are more exciting. I hear ya. Good luck on the haircut... i actually HAVE been thinking about his.. i thought about it yesterday and got worried. I hope it works out. And for boob or no boob... i'm gonna try boob. So i think you should. I've heard of a lifesaver cream that you put on your nipples to prevent cracking and it eases the pain... PLUS.. it's cheaper and if you keep stocked up, you won't have to worry about breastfeeding in public (which i just think is weird.... sorry if someone does this...) It always weirds me out to see some woman with a blanket over her "doing something" underneath. It makes me uncomfortable.

Just one boob?

I say no boob(s) because I mentally cannot boob it and well, my boob(s) aren't helpful anyways.

I think I enjoy motherhood at it's distant, most finest.

I'm nervous about your haircut too. Oh wait. I'm just hungry.

I am excited to see your new haircut and I'm very glad you're taking your movie theater and leaving the 3 yr old. I still say it's not fair! I read your blog everyday for a week with nothing new and then I actually have a life for once and I miss out! *pout* I tried to go with boob and hated it, go with your gut. We should get Jake and Fred hooked up as pen pals.

I bet the cut will look fabulous! I'm for the boob, I was never able to go longer than 3 month, so maybe that's why I am for it, cause I never got way into it? I used cream at first, but when it came down to it, it's all about latching on, if it's done right, you won't have much problem. It's when they slide off to the end that causes the problems. I discovered how to do it right with Eddie, took me three kids to figure it out, so call me if you want my tips. I have a lifesaver book, the best one I have found. But I'm not giving it away because it is so valuable to me, even though I'm not having any more kids. I'm odd, I know. "The nursing mother's companion" by Kathleen Huggins. Oh, and I finally posted something other than stress on both my blogs, so you can go check them out. :)

I boob'ed my kids for a year each, so you can probably guess how I feel about it...

TOO CUTE about Jake and his dad's tests!
