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.

WTHW~ Work, Idol and Hot Sauce
If you haven't started already, now is the perfect time to jump in on the WTHW fun. Stop by Elle and Stacy and play along.
Yay for Hump Day! The week is half over and the weekend is on the way. That's how I used to feel. Now it seems as though I'll be working on the weekends so my excitement is diminishing. What the Hell? I enjoy my get-me-out-of-the-house job but last weekend it was in the high 70's both days and I watched it through the windows and that kinda sucked.
A friend of mine posted on FB that she had put soap in her child's mouth. I'm not judging. I wouldn't do it. What struck me as odd was all the other parents who chimed in with similar stories. What the Hell? I couldn't tell if it was a competition of most creative ways to stop a behavior or a way to release some guilt and take comfort that others had done the same. Someone mentioned hot sauce for talking back and I have another friend who uses hot sauce for lying. What the Hell? Some people just don't tolerate spicy things. Even if it stops the behavior right then and there does anyone feel guilty when the kid is screaming the next day in the bathroom as it leaves their body or is that just a lingering reminder of the bad behavior?
I did so many things while pregnant that I would've never done otherwise. I made it to every appointment, took my prenatal vitamins even though they made me very ill (the second time around) quit smoking and drinking and read up on all the parenting advice I could get my hands on. Why now would I want to start inflicting unnecessary pain to these children I gave it all up for? I'll admit my kids are still little and I may change my mind when they become teenagers but What the Hell? That's where I'll stop.
What the Hell is going on with some of the Idol contestants? I had such high hopes for Andrew but I'm thinking he did peak with Straight Up and we'll never see that out of him again. Crystal remains my favorite girl, by a mile. My favorite boys are Big Mike and Lee DeWyze. I think that will be the top 3. The rest fall very short.
I haven't had any new or interesting wines lately. What the Hell with a capital W. T. H. I meant to stop at Total Wine yesterday on our way home from Ballet but I needed to go to the grocery store too and didn't have time for both. I'll need to make the trip before the weekend because I'm getting a little bored with the same old stuff. Any suggestions?
Now head on over to Blue Monkey Butt and find some more WTHW posts.
