I love hot cocoa--YUM! However, sometimes I want that hot-cocoa-snuggly-socks-cozy-blanket feeling without spending my calories on hot cocoa. You know. So, this is my new favorite thing. Warm 8 to 12 oz. of skim (1%, whatever) milk in the microwave for a minute and a half. Add one teaspoon flavored creamer (my new favorite is vanilla caramel) and one teaspoon sugar. Stir it well and hold that warm cup in your hands as you smell the deliciousness. Drink up with no guilt. And save your calories for when you can really splurge on AMAZING cocoa, instead of that crappy Wal-Mart brand instant stuff you buy for your kids. :)

Maddie got her first haircut today. Normally, I wait a little longer, reveling in the glory that is old-man-hair-on-a-tiny-baby, but when I had to comb the tangles out of her back hair in the morning, I decided that I fight that battle enough already in my life (with four other heads of hair to brush), and we were going to remedy the situation STAT.
Here she is, with both bouffant top and mullet bottom. Is that a winning combination or what?
Mullet bottom mostly gone. I piled the hair on her back so I could have a record of how much I cut off.
Haircut complete. She looks older now, unfortunately. And I loved playing with all that mullet hair when I was holding her in church. *sniff* My baby's growing up. :)
And you know, I really ought to retitle this blog to be either "137 Reasons to Closely Supervise Your Toddler" or "My Incompetence as a Mother." Because this is Bella's most recent haircut.
|She also added stylish asymetrical bangs. They might look fairly mainstream in this photo here, but I assure you, in real life, this look is very avant garde.|

I thought John would capture a full-body shot of my fabulous self in an orange pindot polyester leisure suit. Can you believe he only got this?
