Like Mother, Like Daughter?

I just received this in an e-mail from my Momma:

(click to enlarge)

On the left is my Mom, then myself and of course Punky Butt. She said that the recent pic I posted of Kaitlyn reminded her of that middle pic of me when I was little. I think I see a slight resemblence...maybe? What do y'all think?

To back it up a little bit, when Kaitlyn was born EVERYONE thought she looked like me. She had my jet black hair, my dark eyes, my face shape, my lips, my everything. But as time passed, she magically lost all my features and sprouted curly blonde hair and green eyes.

Now looking at this, I think she definately retained the nose. Of all things she got my nose.

Poor thing.

Thank you for sending this Momma, it made my heart smile :)

Why it's a Bad Idea...

to accidentally doze off after a long exhausting week, with an inquisitive 2 year old running around...even if it's just for a few minutes.

This is some sort of toothpaste, bubble bath, shampoo concoction, which as you can see doubles as a mighty fine finger paint.

Lesson learned. Next time I feel the need for rejuvenation, I will take into account what my munchkin is capable of.

New Shoe Obsession

Up until yesterday, I owned 4 pairs of shoes. One pair of which I wore 95% of the time. I've just never been a shoe person. Kinda like I've never been a purse person, until I realized the excessive amount of crap I stuffed in my pockets made me appear at least 10 lbs heavier. At which point, I just felt obligated to buy a purse.

So anyway. I was just never a shoe person. However, when you run into an opportunity to buy 5 pairs of shoes less than 40 bucks total, I think you have no choice BUT to become a shoe person.

Just wanted to share.

In case anyone is is going fantastical. It's a lot of work, but I'm seeing and doing some pretty awesome things where I am doing my clinical rotations. In other random news, Kaitlyn has developed some sort of Jekyl/Hyde complex. She has the ability to go from smothering me with hugs and kisses to throwing a world class tantrum in 1.8 seconds. Gotta love it.

Better Late Than Never

Well, in my defense I wasn't late in completing the task...just late in blogging about it. So. If you remember back to my 2009 goal list, I said I wanted to read one magazine a month. One that I would normally never pick up. It was between some Consumer Report thinga-ma-bob and this Scientific American Mind...and the Science mag won.

It turned out to be pretty darn interesting actually. To sum it up I learned that:

I can blame biology for my procrastination

Prostitution is legal and regulated in Germany, Greece, The Netherlands, New Zealand and Turkey

There are actually studies going on to determine whether or not computers have feelings...for example do they get upset when we throw them out. (come on, really?)

Children who have chronic ear-aches are more likely to become obese as an adult

Birth control pills affect women's taste in men

Who'd a thunk it?!
