Simon Says

26 April 2012


After tossing, turning, and cursing insomnia late one night last week, I (loudly) announced to a sleeping that Simon I couldn't sleep. After he didn't respond I repeated my complaint louder and louder until he finally opened his eyes and before rolling over said, "well, you should probably get that figured out."

In response to my suggestion that we hire a live-in robot nanny Simon said, "and a wage earner! Then we could frolic merrily forever."

After bemoaning the fact that a certain region of my body is all but concave after only nursing two children for a grand total of 4 months Simon said, "well, maybe Victoria's little sister has a secret."

When I saw that Simon had put Julia's winter shoes on with shorts and no socks for a walk and asked why he didn't put her warm weather/play friendly sandals on instead, Simon said, "she doesn't need to be wearing her pumps to the park."

  1. So do you frolic merrily for short periods of time right now?

  2. Ok, the Victoria's Secret comment about killed me. I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum, right now, and am currently using sports bras and duct tape to keep myself together...sigh.

  4. Is there a saggy sister of Victoria, because that's what I am wondering over here.

    Cheers.

  5. Oh my gosh, the Victoria's little sister comment is hilarious. I can relate. Or will be able to relate to eventually since I am feeling more blessed than usual in that region while I'm nursing. ;)

  10. Ah...nursing is the devil in that way...the only thing that cures it (temporarily) is procreating again ;)
