Oooh Shiny!

My house that is. So my birthday is coming up and I told Jeremy that the onliest thing I wanted was a maid to come and 'deep clean' the house.

I know it seems silly for a stay at home mom to have a maid at all, but this was a one time thing and they cleaned windows and according to Jer actually got on their hands and knees and scrubbed the kitchen floor. Wooh! That never happens around here.

This may become my annual birthday present, we'll see. I will just say that my tub has never been this clean in the 3 years we've lived in this house. So happy birthday to ME!! Now that we don't have to clean for a while Tess and I will have to come up with some summer activities.

We made ourselves scarce while the maids were here and went to play with Tessa's cousins

I now know the answer to two food questions. First of all no, toasting your sub at Subway does not make the meat okay for pregnant consumption. Deli meat and hot dogs must be heated to 'steaming hot' before pregnant women can eat them, according to So that's the end of that.

Secondly, a 14 month old just shouldn't be fed taco bell, period. I'm blaming Jeremy who wanted taco bell after church for his father's day lunch. She ate a bunch of pintos and cheese which I thought was a healthy option for her, not taking into account the red sauce they put on top. Diaper rash is back today with a vengeance.

Poor kid for have stupid parents that feed her beans with hot sauce. In our defense our burritos made us both it's fair to say no one in our house should have taco bell.

That is probably the best birthday present a gal could ask for - good thinking Laura, maybe that is what I should ask for. And you're home so you probably clean regularly - I NEVER clean - I mean NEVER. I straighten up. But I only clean when it's either REALLY bad or company is coming. I just don't have the time!

That sounds like an AWESOME present...good thinking! I was so good when we first moved in...I had a cleaning schedule (dust and vaccuum on Tuesdays, empty trash on Thursdays, scrub bathrooms on Friday etc..) but it is easy to get away from it! Re: Taco Bell, I took Will one time and got him a bean burrito...same thing happened to live, you learn! Brittani
