for Mama's sake

so in my most recent iphone update, my phone was trying to "restore" and in the process i lost all, say it again, ALL of my pictures of my cute kid and family. (OK CLASS, what did we learn today? Always carry a REAL camera with you at all times...) This is unfortunate for so many reasons, but MOSTLY b/c there were some OH-SO- CUTE Father's Day pictures of Davis crawling to catch golf balls with Matt that had not been backed up yet, and some sweet Anniversary pictures that were GREAT b/c it was one of the few night outs by ourselves that we get. UGH is an understatement.

So what can you expect? Random weird posts about every small thing...I don't want to lose anymore. :( Or forget...

an embraced "I am not cool"

I have a pet name problem.
It started out as "Booger" than to "Booger-Schmooger" then to "Schmooger" then some how i ended up at "Doogers." Dont you see the progression?
There is also punkin, punkin pie, punkin pants, punky, bug, Buggy, love bug, and on occasion, Davis. :)
I always made fun of my mom for coming up with weird names for my brother and i, and even more so now with her pet. Oh "if they could see me now." I have entered the point of no return. With calling your child names such as the aforementioned, you have to embrace the fact that "YOU ARE NOT COOL."
Done and done.
I already knew that, but this takes it a step further for me. But i DO NOT care. I call him these names in PUBLIC (poor punkin pants!) and in front of people that i do not know. So, see? Its official. I am not cool, and i am a mom that does not care.
Man that felt good. ;)
