Who is this woman?

Posted on

Today, having joined other moms at the monthly Cloth Diapering Group to discuss laundry issues and while sharing a cup of organic green tea with agave nectar with my daughter, I wondered…who is this woman?  I once lived off ramen noodles and spent days reading fiction.   

Words overheard at the mom’s group:  poop, growing so fast, amber teething necklace, child-directed, attachment parenting, meltdown, basal temp, environment, your child escaped, sleep, no, raising our children, bamboo, how often do you wash, discipline, microfiber, love and anger, potty, ovulation, mommy’s milk, babylegs, be gentle, odor, odor-remover, nursed all night, share your toys, see you next month. 

My husband asked me last night:  Do you ever think of anything except breasts? 

I had mentioned that stem cells have been found in breastmilk.       

Again, who is this strange woman? 

I like her.

    Aw Laura. You’ve also watched me sneak some ramen noodles, too…

  3. my littluns are munching on peanut butter and agave nectar bagels as i type…
    my girl never lived on ramen and fiction– but pizza and gertrude stein. i feel the evolution… from birth control pills and pepsi to red wine and pink thermometers.
    i believe you were once some other way…but can’t really conceive of it. you pull off crunchy super well.

    Well, I draw the line at a pink thermometer.

    Mine is purple…

  5. Strange and woman don’t go together 😉
    Isn’t being a woman great?

  6. I used to love ramen noodles too, and my college roommate taught me it was even okay to eat them dry (very crunchy). But we found a spaghetti squash at Food Lion the other day and tried it last night. It was so fun! It could almost pass for real pasta after Jordy smothered it in pesto sauce!

    Sometimes after Suzi’s gone to bed Jordan and I sit and try to remember what we used to do before we had her. Surely nothing important.

  7. I fed Jackson eggs scrambled in olive oil with whole wheat toast while I ate ramen for lunch today. Oops…
