JP helped with decorating the snake- can you tell?

Rocket ship cake

Mr. Tonks wouldn't let me light the candles for picture taking purposes. It turned out okay, I think, and I'm pretty sure JP will love it.

A new place

I've been toying with the idea of moving over to Wordpress and finally messed with setting up a blog over there today. The new address is: Or, you can just click, here. Please change bookmarks and links accordingly. Apologies for any inconveniences.

Happy Friday!

UPDATE: I've fixed the links and they will now take you to the correct spot. Sorry 'bout that!

A song for JP

JP was singing a song last night. It is, I believe, from a commercial. It goes something like this: Baby you got it, yeah you know you got... It's got a pretty kickin' bass guitar, male voice singing but beyond that I've got nothing. Does anybody know the artist or the commercial of this song?

This is j0lt's fault

Your Score: Cheezburger cat

67% Affectionate, 56% Excitable, 62% Hungry
Sure, you deserve one. You helped popularized lolcats from a running gag to an online sensation. Now mainstream media writes asinine columns on this 'phenomenon', students write theses on the topic, programming languages adopt the grammar, and losers write tests about them on dating sites. Now take your cheezburger and never touch teh internets again.

Which Lolcat Are You? Test
For the record: I don't like cheese and I'm not terribly fond of hamburgers.

Which kitty are you?

A fair point

My mom approached me today about JP's painted toenails (currently lime green). She's worried that other children will make fun of him, call him a girl, etc. She's got a point and I've worry about that, too. Father's of other children in the neighborhood raise their eyebrows and ask, "How does Mr. Tonks feel about that?" when they see his toes. My answer, "Mr. Tonks knows better than to inflict patriarchal values on our children." Or, "Why did you paint his toes?" My answer, "Was I supposed to tell him no just because he has a penis?" Unfortunately, at 4 1/2, JP can't play the patriarchy card very well and even if he could, chances are the kids teasing him wouldn't know what it meant anyway.

I'm not about to let a patriarchal society influence the way I raise my kids but, still, what's a mom to do?
