Happy Birthday Dear Ernie

Happy birthday my dear, sweet, Ernie. Two years have gone by so fast, and my little angel baby is now such a big boy.
I hope you enjoyed your day of choo-choos, cake and presents. Your nap-free day of juice and pops and M's. Your 24 hour, no holds-barred, sugar-fueled rave. A 2 year-old's fantasy camp.
You are pure sunshine and joy and all that is right in the world. You are a treasure to all who know you and love you. And you have quite a fan club.
You also have a mommy who is completely unbiased in her opinion that you are the smartest, most adorable, most charming, sweetest, and most completely loveable little boy in the whole world.
So happy birthday my dear, sweet Ernie. I hope you enjoyed all the cake, and presents, and fun. And thank you for giving me the greatest gift in the world by making me your Mommy.

Top 10 Most Underrated, Overlooked, and Unappreciated Things About Being a Mommy

10. Hearing your 2 year old say "dammit" and being happy it wasn't the F word.
9. Farting and blaming it on the baby. (Daddy likes this one!)
8. You can serve toaster waffles and fried hotdogs for dinner and kids think you're a gourmet chef.
7. Having a constant supply of snacks in your car (Teddy Grahams, animal crackers) even if you do have to eat them off the floor.
6. You can look like you just crawled out of a dumpster and everyone will be too distracted by your radioactively cute children to notice.
5. Baby handprints (and face prints) all over your floor length mirrors and sliding glass doors
4. Saying "night-night" to the dogs, the stuffed animals, the choo-choos, outside, the basketball hoop, and the bathtub.
3. How enjoyable it is to interject comments about baby poopy, pee-pee, boogers and farts into adult conversation.
2. Mommies can fix everything (at least your kids think so).
1. Picking a really big booger out of a really tiny nose.

A blog????

Ernie and Meghan now have a blog (well technically, their PR mouthpiece Mommy has a blog). Why a blog you ask? Is it because:
a. I am an uber-hip techno mom. Coming soon: Baby podcasts!
b. All the other cool Mommies are doing it and I felt like a slacker
c. Ernie and Meghan's hordes of obsessive fans (read: grandparents) demand more updates, more stats, more pictures!!!!

Okay, if you know me at all you know that the answer is mostly c with a little bit of b thrown in. Answer a is completely out of the question.

So enjoy. I can't promise how often I will post, but I will do my best to keep these pages full of chubby baby goodness for your viewing pleasure.
