Stream of Consciousness: Part 7

I have gone shoe crazy! Except, I haven't purchased myself any new shoes - they are all for Porgie. In the past week, I purchased her 3 new pairs of shoes.I am thinking about buying these shoes...
They remind me of my own childhood. Did anyone else LOVE jelly sandals? Fond memories.

The elimination diet is kicking my ass. Did you know that soy is in EVERYTHING? I have been eating cereal and bean burritos for a few weeks, because I just can't seem to find anything to eat. You would think that I'd be losing weight, but I am not. I guess it is all that Rice Dream ice cream I've been devouring every night.

I have made 3 different appointments to have Izzy's three month pictures taken, but I ended up canceling each appointment. Izzy's eczema is really bad and it seems to flare up on picture day. I guess I am going to have to be content with 4 month photos instead.

Porgie knows her colors! Isn't that exciting? I kept identifying her "cullies" during the day, and I started reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear every night, and now she knows red, yellow, brown, blue, green, purple, white, and black. Yes, my child is a genius.

I tend to overuse exclamation points! I use them at the end of really boring sentences, where they obviously do not belong! Below I have listed actual examples from an email I recently sent to a friend...

Make sure you change my email address in your contacts!

I'm trying to find somewhere for Porgie to start swimming classes!

Well keep in touch, and I'll talk to you soon!

It is a sickness! I am making a resolution to stop overusing exclamation points today!

I would like to entertain you with more hilarious stories from my extremely interesting life, but I can't think of anything else to say. So, I guess I am done.

I do the SAME thing with Maggie's shoes! In fact, she just outgrew the "super-cute-brown-shoes" (picture # 1)since she wore the sole off of them. The week before Easter, we went to Target & she got 3 pairs of shoes, Will got 2 & Mom? Oh, I got none. I've been wearing the same 2 pairs of shoes for about a year now. My little black ballerina flats are starting to get pretty stinky.

I loved gellies! I had multiple pairs and wore them out because I practically lived in them. The best thing a little girl can have.

Eva said...

Jellies = awesome.

Those shoes are great. Jealous here. Baby Nora's fixing to need new sneakers, so that's exciting, at least.

Actually, you are right to use exclamation points in email. They did a study. Apparently email does much better with exclamation points. They wrote a whole book about email etiquette and that was a major point, so now I use more exclamation points on purpose!

You totally entertain me.

Believe me, of all people I feel you on the diet. Try a no sugar diet... there is sugar in everything. Wah!

Em said...

Pink jellies yay i want some!!!

A girl can never have enough shoes!


I actually showed my bff some baby GIRL shoes from T@rget that she was to BUY IF buy some small chance Baby H is Baby Ava...I love girl shoes!!!

Mama Kalila said...

Aww the jellies! I bought Kalila a new pair of shoes too, white easter sandles that she gets off a little too well lol..

Claudia said...

I want a pair of jelly pants. Seriously, think about it, how COOL would that be??!

Rachel said...

I loved my jellies so much. Too funny. Great buy yourself a pair too!

I wish the diet were easier. Try hemp milk in whole foods or maybe wegmans-even some other markets have it too. Also what about hummus and carrots and pita-easy and on the go kind of food.

apples and peanut butter or almond butter.

I know you just wanna eat pop tarts and oreos.

I love the little white sandals. I've been looking for some for the summer for Lila but haven't found any yet.

The jelly shoes are too cute! They are way cuter than any I had when I was a kid. The ones we wore were more pointy and open toed.

Eva said...

Sarah had those first shoes last summer. She would get so many compliments on them.

Jeninacide said...

The pink jelly sandals are the FIRST SHOES IIII would have bought... but that's just ME.. Ms. PRACTICAL!

Also= I use exclamation points ALL THE TIME. Even at work. It's like an ADDICTION.
