My New URL is Live!

For years, K has been encouraging me to get a more official URL for my blog (besides the default Blogger one), and I always brushed him off with "This is just a little hobby of mine and no one cares." So for Mother's Day this year, he went ahead and got me the domain name! My mom-in-law was like "What, no jewelry?" but this kind of geeky gift is totally up my alley. K certainly knows his wife well. :)

In other news, remember those video game onesies that my friends made for my baby shower a long time ago? Well, little Dexter is almost one years old, and he's starting to wear the final batch of onesies sized for 18 months. I'll have to make new stenciled clothing once he outgrows these. Here's a pic of him decked out in Mario wear (and stingy with his smiles as usual). Anyway, just wanted to wish a happy belated Mother's Day to all you mommas out there!

If your kids are too young to understand what Mother's Day is, should your husband still buy you a gift or do something special for you?

To answer your question: YES YES YES. I don't ask for much. My gift the past few years is breakfast in bed (cinnamon biscuits and coffee) and the chance to read under the covers all morning. I also got a subscription to Fresh 20 this year (a menu planning service so I don't have to think up healthy food to cook anymore--I just follow the list which is bliss)

Even if you are not your partner's Mother they should acknowledge that you are their child's mother and say "Thank You for giving me such awesome babies--here's a present." YOu do the same on Father's Day, right?

Ooo, breakfast in bed sounds divine. I'm simultaneously sad about the future process of weaning Dexter while looking forward to when K can take care of him in the mornings instead of always me. Fresh 20 sounds interesting; I'll definitely have to check it out.

Yeah I would think that celebrating your spouse on Mother's/Father's Day would be a given, but not so for one of my friends. They're still in negotiations about how to do it since the husband doesn't seem to care about Father's Day (and therefore doesn't see the importance of Mother's Day) so figured I'd ask around. :)

Your Dexter is very cute in his Mario shirt, by the way :-)

Hehe, I thought so too. Really, this whole post was an excuse to show him off. ;)

Congrats! I hope your website will show up in a lot of Google searches and attain Internet fame :-p

Thanks, Naomi! I hope so too. :) My company does web marketing so I know all the tips and tricks. I just don't have the time to do them. O_O
