I’m very sorry for the lack of posting. Here at Little Love Stories there is me and me and oh yeah, me. So when I do not post I promise its not personal- it is simply a lack of balance in my life.
This weekend my husband caught up on the blog and made horrible sounds and faces as he pointed out that I have at least 10 misspellings and run on sentences and terrible grammar in every single post.
He’s all…..“Oh.” “Oh no! They’re not their!!!!” “Maybe… you know what I don’t have the time but I can try to make time to spell check these before they go up on the web?”
I tried not to get annoyed because the man can’t help that he’s brilliant and he married me- but I reassured him that my readers read in my voice/tone and they don’t really care, and they know what I mean, and they know my intentions.
Then Sunshine woke up with the chickens this morning and Matt was still here and he mentioned that its a bit disappointing when I don’t post during the day, blah blah blah. And I’m all “Oh so sorry- I was busy working, editing, cleaning, cooking, and raising our child. When did you start reading it anyway????” But he does, and he’s reading this and he’s counting my mistakes- but he’s smart and will say nothing upon arriving home.
Have you been there? If ever you are in the Coney Island area I absolutely want you to take the time to eat at this place, it’s fantastic. We want to go back with Mother Dear and her enormous Italian family- because everyone there had about 10 people (all family) at one table and they were kissing each other on the cheeks and commenting on how big the baby got and fighting over baked clams. Made me miss Mother Dears’ Family- who has raised me since the age of 17 when I moved to New York.
Speaking of Mother Dear, she and Goose came over for a visit Saturday night. Goose is 2 going on 16. It’s weird to have a conversation with her where she uses the words annoying and trembling in a sentence. YES 2.5!!!! It’s not surprising her mother is literally a genius- she and Matt talk about smart people things and I nod my head like I have any clue what they’re talking about.
We also went to Matt’s soccer game this weekend and Sunny is SOOOO into sports that she choose to read a book as her Da-Da ran around the field. I don’t get the sport either Sunny.
And just when you were thinking what smart girl! The book- you might notice is upside down…I’m sorry Mama it turns out she is more me then Matt.
In other news my friend Susan ( who is pregnant and due in August) called late last week to annoyance that she is having a BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m not actually sure if I was supposed to annoyance that on my blog- but she should know by now that you can’t share that kind of info and expect me to keep my mouth shut!
Susie always wanted a boy- she would take all boys if the good Lord would give them to her. She is really PC ( well not really but you know how preggy people hate to show any preference and instead say things like healthy & happy!) so she won’t admit that we’ve had conversations where she expressed a desire for a boy and I expressed a desire for a girl and-look people dreams really do come true! I’m very excited for her little stinky baby boy! And I would like to take this time to publicly thank her for finding out the sex of her fetus, I’m not good with surprises and she knows this and she will be receiving gifts from me in exchange for her finding out the sex of her child. If you are a friend of mine who is waiting to be surprised- I hope this does not hurt your feelings but I told you when you decided to be surprised that I was against that choice so….here we are. This is awkward.
That’s all I’ve got for this morning. I’m on two deadlines and Sunshine and I are headed to the Brooklyn Children’s Museum for some indoor fun with our friends this morning. Have a great TUESDAY!
