What Have Those Bad Girls Been Up To??

I'm pretty sure my ex-boyfriend
had this t-shirt.
KAAAATTTTEE! Where are you, Kate?!

Oh, that's right. Kate has been working just a little bit. Most of you know that Kate works in the news business. I don't know if you've heard or not, but this has been sort of a busy news week. Even those of us who only watch Nick Jr. have heard all about it so you know its a big deal.

Additionally, the news business has been recognizing Kate's awesomeness lately and offering her a lot of cool stuff to do.  So Kate scampers off to do her groovy job in her fancy shoes and sometimes Lydia gets lonely for her and has to go out on the back deck and howl.

But Lydia has also been a busy beaver. She is starting the process of house hunting.  Oh you know that will yield some ridiculous schmidt because the process or buying or selling real estate will turn a sane person crazy and Lydia's brain train left the station in early 2003.  Also, the Cap'n has put her charge of the whole process.  That's sort of like putting an Ewok in charge of the Empire.  She's already confused and disoriented but pretty sure its going to work out just fine. More on this later...

Nickelodeon posted a really good story about Mini-mini-me, two year old terror and adorable critter.  Ironically, they added a photo to the post of a naked, naughty, super cute toddler.  The kid is not Mini, let's be clear about that.  But the kid looks a lot like Mini, if you squint.  So much so that I got all worked up and started to think the people at Nickelodeon were all powerful and omniscient.  Which of course they are.  Because there's no other explanation for Dora. I thought maybe they had snuck into my house and conspired with my 2 year old to break the long standing MommyLand rule of not showing our kids, but then it just turns out I just got distracted and wasn't really paying attention and possibly squinting and... 

Wait. What? I thought I saw something shiny. Where were we? Oh yes...

Lydia wrote an very obnoxious post about Disney World on Monday.  She wrote a *less* obnoxious one that actually may offer some useful information for people planning their vacations. You can find it in Maternal Ammunition at the Washington Times Communities.  If you have some awesome tips and insight on how to do Disney, head over there and leave a comment.  Your comments and tips were so incredibly helpful to me and my family, so THANK YOU.

And since we decided not to write for Huffington Post this week, we have something else to share with you. 

The Funniest F**king Thing We Heard All Day:

We got an email from our friend Grace who said: "Saw this today while doing the grocery shopping and just had to snap a pic. In case you can't tell - it's a caddy for the side of your toilet to hold tampons. According to the box this handy little device is supposed to "Stop the Waddle." All I have to say to that is Whuck?"

The following picture was attached: 

It doesn't really need a caption, does it? Because it is PERFECT.
