Chicago Moms Blog: A little village-wide plea to poison the ground water?

If you weren't totally convinced before that I'm a tree-hugging nut, this would be good confirmation. And now, I also think my suburb is playing Big Brother, so I'm probably a little bit of a conspiracy theorist, too. {No one is perfect, right?} I just don't like to be told how to kill my weeds. Scratch that. I don't like to be told to kill my weeds period! They are my weeds! Mine!

In other news, I happened to capture a perfect moment while G. was soaking up some rays this afternoon during Baby E.'s snooze. You can see my son is a true fisherman who takes after his Buba and his {late} Papa Brian, as the kid loves fishing.

Even in the backyard.

In a tiny blue pool.

With no fish.

But for a real fisherman, that's not a problem. You make your fishing experience.

"Whatcha doin', buddy?" I asked, so extremely glad that my camera was nearby and had a memory card in it.

"I'm trying to catch some dogfish for my dinner for me and George," he said.

{You know, George the monkey? As in the curious monkey on PBS. He's G.'s first (semi) imaginary friend. Because he's not really imaginary but he's not exactly real either

"Ah," I said. "Should've guessed that."

Oh, and you'll be happy to know we are not actually going to have dog{fish} for dinner.


  1. That last picture cracks me up. Priceless moment you captured. And now I'm going to see about some dogfish for dinner. I may have to settle for Tilapia.

  2. Those pictures are precious :) Off to do more reading...

  3. What, no dog fish? C'mon, that sounded good to me! That is one great picture - I hope you're blowing it up somewhere!

  4. Oh my goodness - your little guy makes me laugh every time you share a story like this! ;) And, as much as I am not much of a dog person...I'm glad you didn't have dog(fish) for dinner! LOL!

    And, by the way, I can't believe they can REQUIRE you to use weed killer. Seriously?!?


There's nothing better than good conversation ... but not while talking to myself. Will you play a part in this discussion?

AND will you pretty please have your email linked to your account or leave it for me so I can respond?

Thanks for taking the time to make these thoughts into conversation.
