June 27 07

way back last week, before my nanny quit and life got flipped turned upside-down, i told you some things that may or may not be true. and i still owe you some answers.

3. i cannot sleep in socks. or with a blanket. or even with a pillow. and i can only sleep in a tanktop and shorts – no pajamas for me. i like for nothing to be touching me while i’m sleeping, including my husband.

this is false.

i sleep in socks. every night. well, i fall asleep in socks. i usually find them on the floor beside my bed in the morning. i must have a blanket on me when i sleep. and it must be pulled all the way up to my ears. and i have about three pillows. and i can only sleep in pants and a t-shirt. my legs need to be completely covered. my god, i’m a superfreak.

so, congrats to SciFiDad, sam, Rebecca, Haley-O, Vaguely Urban, loren, AndreAnna for guessing that #3 is false.

Things have been going great with Nanny Heidi. She’s supersweet and hasn’t quit yet, even though the girl and the boy have been total beasts all week. seriously, my kids pulled out the big guns for this one. screaming, fighting, breaking things, not listening. it’s been a real pleasure, let me tell you.

please keep your fingers crossed that Heidi’s the one. i mean, i haven’t seen her bending any spoons with her eyes, but i have a good feeling about her.

thanks so much for all of your support during nannygate. you guys are all fantastic. and i think this calls for a giant blogger make-out session. with tongue. who’s in?

i bet i know one person who’d be game…my good friend – both online and in real life – miss haley-o. seriously, folks, this pregnancy has brought out all sorts of things in her. the glow. the giddiness. the burps. and the horniness. you should have seen us last night at our urbanmoms.ca girls night. Haley can’t talk to the waiter (“um…i like broccoli!”). Haley gets the giggles, Jen gets the giggles, Ali gets the giggles. Haley starts crying. Ali’s face hurts from laughing so much. lather, rinse, repeat. all night.

personally, he’s not really my type.



but we all got a good laugh about it. and we couldn’t stop laughing. all night.

the picture of us came out nicely…even if you can see half my boob. come head on over to fabulous to check out the rest of the pics.

  1. Glad the nanny is working out so far!
    That’s an awesome pic of you gals, sounds like you had fun.

  3. I think we should all post that picture of Haley and the Ferucci (Turrel?) waiter, because, you know, three places just isn’t enough. ;)

  4. Hahaha Hale. Tooo funny!!

    Glad you guys had fun!! Looks like a GREAT time!

  5. Those pics are great! I am so jealous that you guys live close – it seems like you always have so much fun together.

    Glad things are going out with Heidi!

  6. You are far from a super-freak when it comes to sleeping. I too always find my socks beside the bed in the morning…some even hide away at the bottom of the bed until it’s time to clean the sheets.

    Good to hear the Nanny has been working out so far.

  7. There was a story on the TODAY show this morning about nanny-nabbing. I thought of you! Hope you don’t have to deal with that again, best of luck with Heidi!

  8. Wow, if you’re quoting Will Smith things must be fan-fucking-tastic!!!

  9. Aw, my first wrong answer! I DESPISE wearing socks to bed – creeps me out! For some reason, I went with true because I vaguely remembered reading something about not liking being touched while you sleep, including the husband – even though I thought the no pillow thing was a little bizarre. ;)

    Glad the Nanny is working out so far! :)

  10. Sorry, it’s only my second time here and I don’t french kiss on the second date.

    Glad she’s working out :)

  11. Looks like you had such a great time!
    I just volunteered to help my sister find a nanny – your “nannygate” story makes me apprehensive, but hopefully Heidi will work out!

  12. Your 1/2 boob is way hot, don’t worry about it.


    Comment by Oh, The Joys on June 27, 2007
  13. bloggy make-out party! i am soooooo there. i’ll even host it! ;)

    i’m very glad heidi’s working out well so far. i’ll be keeping my fingers crossed that she sticks it out and becomes a valued part of your family.

  14. It’s not a party until a boob pops out ;)

    Looks like a blast and you are right Haley-O is glowing.

    Oh and I must have my legs covered when sleeping or it’s just a bad night all around (just ask husband).

  15. I recently had a much-too-much-boob thing going on in a picture of myself TAKEN WITH MY GRANDMA. Good grief! I need to start wearing turtlenecks around my grandma lest I blast her eyes.
    Three for three for me!


    Comment by Rebecca on June 27, 2007
  16. Hey- I have VERY SPECIFIC rules about socks, blankets and how I am covered up at bedtime. So, you aren’t a freak. Or we both are.


    Comment by aimee/greeblemonkey on June 27, 2007
  17. Hell, my husband came home from work this morning with me, in bed, naked, with all of the lights on in the livingroom/kitchen area. He slept in the other room. Bless his soul. Naked sleep is the best sleep, and I hate when it’s interrupted by things like… men, for instance.

    My boobs show up in every picture. In fact, they show up in rooms about ten minutes before the rest of my body.


    Comment by loren on June 28, 2007
  18. PS – the waiter looks an aweful like the lead singer in Live.


    Comment by loren on June 28, 2007
  19. Hey, showing a little sideboob there, eh? Nice. ;)

    I totally think the waiter looks like Joey Jerimiah. Totally!

    I’m glad Heidi is working out so far…I’ve still got my fingers crossed, though.

  20. sometimes we get better Haley stories over here!

    I figured since I dont sleep in socks, everyone must always want to be like me!
