It’s high art on Super Cali Listic this week as a hair rant turns into husband appreciation. To add sparkle to your weekly routine click here:
This week it’s back to Super Cali Land to confess the details of my double life as a succulent thief:
I like so many new moms think we can cook, clean, bath, burp and still manage to have time for our own endeavors. The truth is you need help, and even then you’re working overtime. And now cue the cliche “But it’s the best thing I’ve ever done” and it’s true it is. I LOVE my little man. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t have moments where I go completely bonkers. Like this week when I TRIED to shoot a video about my trip to YouTube Space LA…
When both Jesse and Deco managed to break limbs (toe and leg respectively) the week before Halloween it only seemed fitting to dress up as one of fiction’s creepiest nurses – Annie Wilkes from Stephen King’s MISERY…
So I was feeling pretty rotten this past week, so of course I decided to shoot a video from my “sick bed” instead of getting some much needed sleep. Brilliant. Originally I had planned to make a fun video about a beer pong tournament I was in the previous weekend, but of course all my plans fell through when I feel ill and spent what little energy I had caring for Baby Deco.
PS I know the pop phone thing is kinda weird, but get used to it, cause I’m too cheap AND busy to figure out a better solution right now.
The grandparents are in town so Jesse and I decided to go to his office to do our taxes. Let’s just say I’m hard at work. Hard at work analyzing how my sweater makes me look like a matronly librarian type while I spin around the room. Let’s just say I’m not the paperwork type and I’m avoiding my very intricate receipt filing system. Which consists of wading up all my paperwork into a tiny little box and then sorting each meaningless scrap the day before my taxes are due.
So my husband is producing the musical American Psycho and the other night he brought home a very lifelike and therefore very scary Patrick Bateman doll. I kinda freaked out and banished the figurine to his office. Click to watch.
It’s month 5 and time to reenter my cyber life one short vlog at a time. This week Baby Deco gets his first look at iMovie and I do some tummy time and rolls with him. It’s a meet in the middle kinda thing. Click to watch!
I’m still on my version of maternity leave, meaning “on a break from posting videos on my various YouTube channels while I feed baby from my booby.” And as many of you know an internet addict like me can’t quit cold turkey, so of course I have adjusted all my social networking settings so that in one click from my iPhone I can post random home videos to all my various sites. Good times. Click below to watch videos from Mommyland, or as Jesse likes to call it “The Dairy Farm”.
