On Giant Teacups


A few people were telling me that Wal-Mart was selling these giant teacups and that I might want to pick one up for a photo prop.

The teacups are really supposed to be potters for plants.

But I think it would be super cute to stick my kids in it for a photo opportunity.

Of course our Wal-Mart didn't have any.

I searched everywhere.

Then I finally asked someone.

"I'm looking for these giant teacups. They're supposed to be for plants but I want to put my kids in them.."

I probably shouldn't have worded it that way.

Because the look the worker gave me was priceless. She looked like she wanted to turn and run down the aisles screaming, "Psycho mother, psycho mother! She wants to take her poor children and stick them in a PLANT POTTER! PSYCHO MOTHER!"

I quickly added, "For pictures. I think the teacup would be cute for pictures.."

The woman still looked at me as though I had just done a cheer...naked.

Finally she spoke.

"I don't think we have any in," she said. Her hand was close to her walkie talkie as if she figured she'd have to use it at any second to report an insane shopper.


So I turned out to be a crazy at Wal-Mart that day.

Usually it's the other people who look insane to me. You know you have men who look like murderers, women who walk around in slippers...

I looked perfectly normal but I had just made a strange request.

(Am I crazy?? Has anyone seen these teacups?? I was told Wal-Mart had them..)

I did find some fabric for photos though. I haven't tried it out yet.

Tom bought some Scott's turf to make our yard pretty. He only needed ONE bag but he bought two.

"Just in case," he said.

Thing is those stupid bags are $33 bucks. EACH.

When we checked out I looked shocked.

"I thought they'd only be like ten dollars.."

Both Tom and the cashier laughed at me.


Like I ever bought Scott's turf before. But it's seed right? Why does seed need to be $33?


And one bag covers 15,000 square feet and our yard isn't that big.

But Tom insisted we needed two.

Later that night Tom attacked me.


He claimed I was making the moves on him.

All I did was tell him goodnight.

Where does he get that I want to have sex from goodnight?

I always say goodnight.

Then I go to bed.

I wasn't naked when I made this proclaimation. I was in my regular nursing nightgown.

Not sexy at all.

But okay.

Sometimes it's just easier to give in to him. Otherwise he hangs around and won't leave and I lose sleep time.

And I never know quite when Natalie is going to wake up again to eat so I just accepted the fact that I'd be having sex that night.

I did take some pictures of Natalie. Most came out blurry.

I hate my camera sometimes.
