Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Monday Madness and my Plea for a Vacuum

So I have a couple things to say today.

First off, Momdot is having a Hoover vacuum giveaway and I need your help. I'm supposed to tell them the worst gift I ever received, and then they will determine the top (worst) 20 gifts and post them, then voters will pick who's gift is the worst and they will receive a Platinum Lightweight Bagged Upright and Portable Canister worth $399. I'm ready to switch back to a bagged vacuum. I have 2 bagless ones and it's a pain to take them outside to empty them and then use my cone vac or a broom to clean them up before bringing them back into the house. So, my worst gift ever? Well, I had to look around. I found this in my closet.

The picture is not the greatest(sorry). This lemon yellow Housecoat was a gift from my MIL. Her intentions were pure, she gave me this to take to the hospital to wear after the birth of my first child (5 1/2 years ago). I don't do house coats, or bathrobes, or nightgowns (unless they are of the silky or sheer nature and they are worn to bed but removed before actually going to bed, if you know what I mean). The fact that she thought this would be a good thing to take to the hospital, with a matching nightgown (no idea where that is or why I still have this) is beyond me. She's had a child. A woman needs some pants after having a baby. You can't wedge one of those ginormous pads in your undies and expect them to stay without some extra support.

So, that's my worst gift ever. If you think that I should win a new vacuum for that then vote for it over at Momdot on January 29th. Prior to having a first child a vacuum would have been way more appreciated than this.

If you think I am ungrateful, and just love this robe, leave a comment and maybe I'll send it to you. It's size medium and still has the tags on it.

I think I do a second post on the other news in a little while. So come back and check that out too.
