The Weekly Peanut, Issue 77

The Peanut had a jam-packed week of fun and adventures, and [thank goodness] my new phone was up to the challenge of getting plenty of pictures and video to document the journey.  Hoo-rah. I'm going to integrate the Hits and Misses into a recap so I won't miss anything. 

Two weeks of relative peace and joy.  There are parents out there, I'm sure, who don't get even that.  I should feel blessed, no? But still...

It would have been nice to keep the party going a bit longer.

The weekend started well enough.  Despite the chaos surrounding it, D did an admirable job braving her second Megacon. (That was my last time going on a Saturday. Seriously.) All my attempts at assembling a family costume outing were thwarted by the grinch (aka my husband), so we ended up representing for Star Trek, of course.

Next Friday will mark the first birthday of MinkFlamingos! To think it was only a year ago that I was clutching a screaming newborn to my chest, muttering and grumbling about how I'd been lied to my whole life and GOSHDARNIT somebody needs to start telling the truth about babies! I started this blog to give myself an outlet for my thoughts; I never expected to reach as many people as I did.  I've had almost 4,000 unique visitors and almost 10,000 page views since launching on 9/27/12.
