Trips to the dentist - I like to postpone that kind of thing.-Johnny Depp

I think I was 11 or 12 the first time a dentist said I should get my wisdom teeth out. I know for sure they said so when I was 17 and getting braces. Aaaaaand again in my 20's when I got my very own dental insurance for the first time. But they didn't hurt and they weren't bothering me so it got put off.

About a month before Daphne was born I broke a tooth in my sleep (seriously how did that happen?). Luckily it turned out to be one of my wisdom teeth and dead so it didn't hurt but it also meant it was time to get them out. Unfortunately being 9 mos pregnant that meant waiting again. I had intended to get them out while I was on maternity leave but we wound up buying a house instead, so again I waited.

Today however my waiting ended. All 4 out. Minutes before they started the Dr. warned me that one of them was situated in a way that potentially could cause nerve damage (1-5% of people). Now that it's stopped bleeding (Ewwwwww so much blood! Seriously ewwwwwww) and the numbness has mostly worn off it's not so bad. My mouth's a little gross but not very painful (fairly awesome drugs). I even ate a pudding cup, it took about 40 minutes but I am less starving now.

I've been watching movies all day. Dave's going to bring me home soup for dinner. I've had worse days.

I like to walk around with bare feet and I don't like to comb my hair.-Beyonce Knowles

I don't change my hair often. It generally looks pretty much the same way it has since I was a kid. But even I get bored and lets face it occasionally it NEEDS an update. 

Before 1
Hello 1990's
 Before 2
 I cut off about 9 inches of hair and got new highlights with no lowlights (I've been getting red lowlights for about 5 years). I would have cut off even more but I was afraid of winding up with "Mom hair".

Of coarse this is all nicely blow dried. I am incapable of drying it nicely and naturally it has a lot of natural wave so it'll probably wind up looking quite different when I style it myself.

I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.-Edgar Allan Poe

I was playing a trivia game on my phone.

The question was which of these books was written by Edgar Allan Poe?

One of the options was The Cat in the Hat.

I was struck by what a bizzare book that would be.

Do not go gentle into that good night but rage, rage against the dying of the light.-Dylan Thomas

Yesterday the new girl at work spotted my picks of the girls and asked, "Are those your grand babies?"

 I laughed at the time.

Now I'm really depressed.

My spelling is Wobbly. It's good spelling but it Wobbles, and the letters get in the wrong places.-A.A. Milne

The whole family was in the car.

Me: What on earth was the sticker on that car?

Dave: What? Where?

Me: Too late their gone. I think it was a stylized cat but honestly it looked like a p.e.n.i.s and b.a.l.l.s.

Fiona: Penis!

Soooooo we've reached the point where spelling things out doesn't work any more.

You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means.-The Princess Bride

Daphne isn't really talking yet, but she is communicating...sort of. She sometimes nods, and can repeat simple words like "No" or "Hi" but I'm not convinced she has any clue what they mean. On the other hand she has one word she says A LOT....Mama.

Considering Fiona had a whole bunch of words before she got to Mama this would be gratifying. But no for Daphne Mama doesn't mean me.

Here is a list of things Mama means

I want that
Here take this thing I'm bored with it
Pay attention to me
I'm tired
Look at that thing over there
I'm hungry
That's mine
I want some milk
Look a kitty
I want to yell for no reason you will be able to figure out

Apollo's first love was elusive Daphne-Ovid's Metamorphoses - Book I

I just realized I really haven't posted almost any pics of Daphne here since she was just a month or so old so here are a few of my favorites.

Here's the day I dressed her as a Ninja. We hadn't combed her hair yet after her bath. When we do comb it and it's still wet she looks like a pudgy balding man with a comb over so that wouldn't really have been better.
Here she is the morning she turned one (Jan 27). Check out her tiny little pink Converse.
Here is cuddling with Mama on a sick day. She LOVES that blanket. Dave gave it to me for Christmas but Daphne pretty much claimed it as her right full property. I usually only get to use it if I'm sharing with her.
Here is meeting Santa. She is not a fan of the big man. And yes that grown up young lady is Fiona.
At the Sacramento train museum
Slightly blurry picture of Cinderella and Anna from Halloween. Daphne only wore the outfit long enough for me to take a few pictures and wound up going to bed before we even had an trick or treaters. Fiona actually wore a completely different costume, I don't remember why she had that outfit on.
