Letter to kotex...

I got this in my email from my friend Kristy. I found it so funny (and true) I felt the need to share.


Dear Kotex,
I recently noticed that the peel-off strip of my pantyliner had a bunch of Kotex Tips for Life" on it. Annoying advice such as:
- Staying active during your period can relieve cramps.
- Avoiding caffeine may help reduce cramps and headaches.
- Drink 6-8 glasses of water a day to keep you hydrated and feeling fresh
- Try Kotex .. blah blah blah .. other products
Obviously the person behind this was someone who has never possessed a functioning set of ovaries. Go ahead and tell a menstruating woman TO HER FACE that drinking 6 to 8 glasses of water will help keep her feeling fresh. See what happens and, report back. I'll wait. While you're at it, dump out the coffee at work and remove the chocolate from the vending machine. I guaran-DAMN-tee that the first responders will be females who just ovulated. Look, females don't need or want tips for living on feminine hygiene products. Younger girls are already hearing "helpful" crap like that from their elderly relatives. Veteran females have already concocted their own recipes for survival, many containing alcohol. Printing out shit advice while sneaking in ads for the brand THAT WAS ALREADY PURCHASED is just plain annoying, not to mention rude and enough to send a girl running to the Always brand. Mostly we'd like to forget that we even need these products. It's not a fun time, but DO NOT try to cheer us up by adding smiley faces or bunnies or flowery cutesy crap to your products or the packaging. Put the shit in a plain brown wrapper so we can throw it in our carts discreetly and have it blend in among the wine and beer. There is nothing more annoying than having a blinding pink package announcing your uterine state to everyone in the store. The ultimate goal of your product should be functional invisibility at every stage, including at the point of purchase. So take your tips for living and shove them right up your ass. (Try drinking six to eight glasses of water to make you feel fresher while you're doing it!)
Ovarily Yours,
Miss PMS

YEAH MOMMY!!!!!

My mom was out here last week and then she went back home friday and came back sat with my dad. We had a very nice visit. While my mom was here she bought me a GREAT gift. She was teaching me to sew and finally this time it clicked. SO she decided to get me a nice sewing machine to get me going. I got a Husqvarna Scandinavia 300 it does both sewing and embroidery. It is AWESOME!!!! SO far I have made Angelina a outfit and a blanket. I have one started for WIlliam and some fabric for some shorts to do for him. I am just so excited about all of this. I will post pics of my projects real soon. OH and I made a huge pic for my wall of the kids. SO anyway that's what I have been up too.

My mommy's coming over.

Well my mom is on her way for a little visit. She is bringing some things to teach me to sew. I am gonna "attempt" to make Angelina some outfits for summer. Wish me luck. Although I am good at crafty stuff sewing wasn't a strong point for me. I am now wanting to learn so we shall see where it goes. My mom will be out here for a few days then go back to Ohio and get my dad and come back with him for another day. My dad and mom were supposed to come out over the weekend but my dad being the non-family guy he is choose to not come on account of the weather. Which by the way was not bad enough to cancel the trip. But I guess he is ready now to come see his grandkids. We shall see what happens there. But for now I will enjoy what I do have and that is my mom is on her way.

Matt is home for the next 2 weeks. The beginning of this lay off has not been going well. We have been up to our old ways and fighting over the DUMBEST SHIT EVER! I told him last night it was time to step it up again and work on breaking this cycle. I am up to the challenge let's hope he is too. That's the dumbest part of this stupid fighting. IF we BOTH work together we get along great and enjoy each other. So WHY don't we do it all the time? I have no clue but we are gonna get out of the habit and be good to each other again. Ok well that's about all I got to say for today.

Somebody slap me!

Ok today I had a appt for William at the Ortho doc. His little feet kinda roll in when he stands. He is still pretty clumsy when he walks and he drags his Left ever so slightly when he walks. SO at his 2 year check up I mentioned it to his PED and she watched him walk and said that I was right he should be seen. So I took him in today totally expecting them to tell me to get him some supportive shoes or maybe a insert for his shoes. Ya know, something mild. Well NOPE the ortho Dr. said that yes he is dragging his leg and lets get a X-ray of his hips. I felt nervous from then until I left. Well the good news is his hips are perfect. The not so good news is the Ortho Dr. Said he needs a brace for that leg to make him use it right. He won't need it forever but for now he needs it. I feel so bad for my little man. He always has all the issues. The thing that really shook me up was the mention of cerbal palsy. The Dr. said he is pretty sure William has a *mild* case of it and although he can't commit 100% to that with out a MRI he is pretty confident that is what we are dealing with. The Dr. Said his own daughter has it and the thing with cerbal palsy is there is not much that can be done. Therapy and teaching them how to move their body's in a way that the muscles with allow is about it. I guess the good side of this is it doesn't get worse with time. It is just what it is. I've always known he has had low muscle tone. I was ok with that term. What I didn't know was the term *low muscle tone* is a nice way of saying mild case of cerbal palsy. Just the label takes a bit to get used to I guess. I should be SO THANKFUL that he is healthy and his mind is totally sharp and smart. I should be so happy for all that we have been given with these two. But truthfully I am so sad right now. I guess I gotta get over it and do what's right for my little man. The great thing is the Dr. Said that with me noticing all these things in him very soon in the game by the time he goes to school no one should be able to tell he has it. He said most of the time cases like Williams are not caught until the child is 4-5 and by then they are school age when the braces and stuff are introduced. So YAY! MOMMY! We will get that part over with and save him from having to deal with mean kids at school.
