Names Changed to Protect the Obvious

Here's that apparently-not-quite-so-sweet pea dressed up in costume for school:

The project was called "dynamic duo" - every kid had a partner, like Batman & Robin or Beauty and the Beast. The pea's pair (we'll call her Leanne) was dressed as an angel.

I was more than a little hesitant about the Sweet Pea's costume choice. It wasn't so much that I thought she'd be smote or anything for wearing it (although you just never know). I was more concerned about her teachers and classmates suddenly realizing that maybe she isn't always as sweet as I make her out to be.

It turns out I didn't have to worry. No one was going to be fooled by a mere costume anyway.

Sweet Pea's teacher when he sees her in costume:

"Wow! You're really in your element here!"

At least he ended up asking her if she would be HIS partner, since it turns out his costume was none too sweet either.

And a conversation between the Pea and one of the boys:

Boy from her School - So who's your partner?
Evil Pea - Leanne. She's an angel.
Boy from School - Shouldn't you guys have swapped?
Same Boy - You you could try playing out of character?

That's about the news from here - same ole' same ole'. We're mostly just trying to keep the level of resident evil at a bare minimum.

Dress Your Baby in Pepto Bismol

I'm here! More or less. I've been so crazy busy the only time I even tried to take a picture of a sign, it turned out my camera didn't have any batteries.

My dad's been asking for tummy pictures though, so I asked the Sweet Pea to take some today. These are 28 weeks/six months:

Everyone's been telling me that it's so much easier to find clothing for a girl baby than a boy baby. They say there are so many more choices for girls. And that is 100% the absolute truth. As long as you don't mind dressing your baby like she's been dipped in Pepto Bismol.

It's true. The choices these days are more or less boyish or pink. I even had to buy a her a pink House of Blues baby t-shirt, 'cause the only other choice was blue. And a girl's gotta have one of those. Apparently.

In any case, I made it to spring break, so I should have more posts coming up soon.
