Weekend Coffee Share #41

If we were having coffee, we would lament about Chris Cornell’s passing. I didn’t realize he had a five octave range, but he did. I knew he was a powerful vocalist, but jeez. And his voice soundtracked a lot of my formative memories, and I hoped to see him as an old lady, an old rocker onstage.

So this means Eddie Vedder is the last leading man of this cohort (Pearl Jam/Soundgarden/Nirvana/Alice in Chains) to still be alive. I have to see him. And they all died of suicide. Listening to this, one of my favorite Soundgarden songs, it seems logical.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that Wee One’s speech therapist said she’s doing well and making noticeable improvements. I think she is, but I’m her mommy: I think she’s perfect anyway. It’s just nice to hear my high opinion of validated.

I know this is random, but I hate hate hate the phrase “food porn.” It sounds so nasty, and usually, the thing in the photo isn’t that great!

What about you? What do you think of “food porn?” What music was important to you through the years?

I’m fine with my bowl of cereal and gallon of coffee, but since Wee One has started on solid foods, I need to step up my game. She needs something well-rounded that will set her up for the rest of her life, ’cause she’s learning about eating from the lessons I teach her, and if she doesn’t get this, she won’t grow up straight, she’ll be crooked, and all the kids will make fun of her and she’ll run away and live in the mountains. (Or so I’ve read. I really need to quit reading.)

My Instincts Are Sometimes Mute

How well do you trust your instincts? People say we should, but do you?  It’s not something I’ve thought about very often, but knowing I’m going to raise a little girl has made me think about how I’m gonna teach her this stuff. I’m better in some areas than others.

First Trimester Lessons

Wee One is about this size right now.
So, I’m seven weeks along right now, almost eight.  One month left in this first trimester.  I had my first bout of nausea last night/this morning, and I’m hoping that’s as bad as it gets. There are some things I’m appreciating during this time, the time that so many women call magical.
