Facts

#1) I have a new addiction. Smores. But the embarrassing part is not that I've managed to eat five already today but that I make them in the microwave with chocolate chips instead of hershey's bars and miniature marshmallows. It's like buying cheesecake from a gas station. It's sick I know. Even more pathetic is that I spent a half an hour pondering the idea that using a microwave is suddenly less civilized than building a fire.

#2) I took Jay to the doctor last week for his weight check. (Remember how I had one month to fatten him up?) Well guess what.... HE LOST WEIGHT! He is now 4th percentile instead of 5th. (19.14 lbs. and 31" long) Great... now they think I'm a bad mom. I need a smore.

#3) We finally got Jay a new carseat! Front facing! Woohoo! No more lugging a heavy car seat in and out when Jay's asleep. Jay seems to like it. His first time in it was this morning and he just kept staring out the front windshield with no expression. When I pulled up to my bank's drive through window the teller asked if I wanted a sucker for Jay. I shook my head and she said nervously, "He just keeps staring at me," as if maybe that would make him stop.

#4) I got sick of having our new mattress in our living room and decided to move it all by myself.... Just to give you a visual: It's huge. King Size. 14'' Deep. It almost leveled me twice. I'm lucky to be alive. I hope you all have one of those "we almost lost her" moments of gratitude for me today. I know I will.

OK. So Im a smore-a-holic too. And its totally not wt to cook them at home - just do this. Hersheys full mallow, graham cracker broil on low until the mallow is brown - just sit and watch it. Fun fast treat! Also, add rasberries to it to make it more fresh and interesting (add them after its cooked obviously) :)

Ya, you gotta do it in the oven to get a REAL smore! And I did have a "moment" just for you...I mean what would the world be like without Stacy?! No more scary lifting alone...mkay?! Unless you wanted to come over and get the junk out of my garage and take it to the dump...
