The Old Crazy – still the same, really

I just came across a blog post I did back in February of 2009. I can’t even remember what I was looking for because I had to immediately stop and draw your addition to the old blog post. February 2009 was when Zach was six weeks old. SIX WEEKS OLD, I repeat for emphasis. The way I describe him, you would think he is doing back flips in the yard. He is clearly sitting completely still and staring – as all six week olds do.

Oh and the last paragraph, where I say he looks so much older than the baby next to him. HILARIOUS! He looks the exact same. It is good to be reminded that we are all those crazy new parents who find every thing fascinating and take 50,000 photos. It is what keeps us from bolting when they poop all over you for the third time and want to be attached to you all night. Well that and all that overwhelming love that makes you cry about how beautiful they are (embarrassing…he looked like Elmer Fudd).

Enjoy my crazy….


PS I had a real hard time including this photo…as I am clearly sleep deprived, possibly also medicated and still look six months preggers. But then I was all, screw it. This is what I looked like and all I can see when I look at that photo is that tiny ball of baby who is now six and questioning me on the first religion (anyone?) and if sharks are mammals (again, anyone?).

PPS That is a lie. I totally stare at myself and don’t like it. BUT, I try to focus on the baby.

PPSS Seriously, I don’t know the answers to 95% of his questions. Are sharks amphibians? They don’t have lungs or hair so they can’t be mammals, Zach told me. Also, this is why I can’t have a reality show as everyone would think I was stupid like Jessica Simpson. You ask one question like are sharks mammals and the entire country thinks you are an idiot.

  1. I love this! You look wonderful in the pic with Zach. I can’t believe how old he is. That makes me really old and I don’t like that. I prefer to remember myself as 22, drinking out of a can at the Gallant Knight.
    Isabelle has gotten so used to asking Siri for answers. “Siri, it’s Isabelle Kleine- again. Can you help me?” Siri helped with the website below.
    Shark Facts here-
    A shark is a fish, A whale is a mammal.
    I miss your face!

  2. Yep, Julie is right. Sharks are fish. And we cannot be certain of the first religion since it was practiced and developed long before any sort of archeological or historical record starting leaving clues for us. And that is probably a better answer for a 6-year-old than the theories of fertility cults being first based on the earliest statues that emphasized big bellied women with big breasts.

    • Heather you are my hero. Instead of Siri, can I get an “Ask Heather” button? Because I know you have nothing better to do than answer Zach’s questions…but seriously I need you.
